    After some info on a vet please for our dogs' return passport check and worming treatment this week.

    We're currently at Chateau Gontier, approx 40km above Angers and tomorrow will be travelling up to the Northern coast of France, probably ending up at Grandcamp Maisy (just LOVE that name!) with the intention of driving slowly Eastwards then up the coast, getting to Wimereux just above Boulogne sur Mer sometime on Tuesday afternoon.

    Our crossing with Eurotunnel is Thursday morning so we need to see a vet with our dogs sometime on Monday ideally, or Tuesday if needs be ... soooooo ....

    Does anyone know of a vet somewhere between Caen and Boulogne we could use that ideally does NOT cost the earth as we have 3 dogs!

    I know I can look at the map giving details of vets but the info doesn't always give an idea of prices, or if they do, they are quite a few years old, so am looking for more recent info/suggestions please.

    Hi we used a vets in Saint-Valerie-sur-Somme a couple of years back its just turn up and wait your turn, he let us give our dog the tablet, very reasonable too good English speaking vet. It was August and probably only waited 45mins if I remember open 4pm while 7pm. Lovely town and lovely Aire which is through a barrier think it was 5 euros the vets is on the left as you walk down into town from the Aire.

    We used the vet in Saint Valerie Sur Somme in May - cost about 30 Euros for one dog. Just turn up, no appointment needed.

    The Aire at Maillerie sur seine (spelling might not be entirely accurate) always works for us. It's €15 per dog and the Aire is 100mtrs from the vets.

    The vets at Forges les Eaux are very good. In the centre of the town and you can walk from the aire in about 10 minutes.

    Second this recommendation, Dr Patrick speaks English and is a very nice man. He let's you give your own tablets. We paid 41 euros for 2 dogs two weeks ago.

    Don't have a dog but have heard good reports of the vet at La Mailleraye-sur-Seine.

    One of our favourite aires as well, with good dog walking and plenty to see on the river.
    Plus, you don't have to go through Rouen, another bonus. (y):)

    Be careful about taking your own worming tablets for your dog as some vets will still charge you the same price as if they'd supplied them.

    St.Omer vet speaks English, but we got charged €4.20 in 2012, went on 5th October 2016 and the charge was €35, the only difference is we made an appointment this time and just walked in last time.
    They is an Aire across the road that was free in October because the pay machine was turned off so no water available and the trains can be noisy.

    I've added the up-to-date prices to the Google Map - any more details of Vets you've used recently - new or old - would be appreciated.

    The more choice the better.

    We used the vets in Wimereux in Dec 14, there is a car park close by easy to park up.
    Can't remember the cost but spoke good English, gave them a good check over.
    If you don't speak French like us, they said best to email for an appointment.

    As there was a vet at Courseulles sur Mer hubby wanted to go there as easier than having to go elsewhere ... I wasn't sure as it's a posh marina place but the clinic was a few km away from the 'posh' bit so ... wish we'd not bothered!!!! It has cost us more than we've ever had to pay anywhere else ... €111.08 for 3 dogs including the tablets! :eek: NOT happy at all ... charged for 3 consultations but with a discount of 20% on the second and 30% on the third but still very expensive!:mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Will NOT be going there again so won't bother giving the details on here as I wouldn't want anyone to pay through the nose too - there's only the one vet practice so just avoid it!!!!!! :unsure:

    Useful feedback but makes me wonder why you bothered asking the question originally, you were offered a good few options still more or less on your route for the next couple of days that could have saved you loads and were recommended o_O

    True ... perhaps you would also like to ask my hubby that ... I'm still too blooming fuming to do so in case I kill him! :cautious:

    Minxy Girl - I agree it's daylight robbery and I certainly wouldn't want to recommend the Vet you used but if you let me have the address I'll mark it on the Google Map as a place to avoid.

    That way others will not get robbed as you have.

    Minxy Girl - Vet added to Google Map - with a clear message NOT to use this Vet.

    Thanks for the info.
