We are made up of a close knit, skilled team of veterinary surgeons and nurses first established in 1977. We provide the very highest standards of veterinary care for pets, horses and farm animals in Kent and East Sussex. Our experienced receptionists make clients feel welcome on arrival and our efficient admin team help run the business behind the scenes.

She enjoys looking after all species, as long as they aren’t trying to bite or kick her! She has a Labrador cross, Louis who can often be found behind the reception desk hovering for biscuits, and a cat Bailey who isn’t as enthusiastic about coming in to visit.
