We have brought our mini Schnauzer, L, here since he was a puppy (now 2) after researching the best vets to register him with. It's not the closest vet to us but we wouldn't take him anywhere else. We have always been super impressed with the experience we have with the vets, from the ease of booking appointments, availability of appointments to the care given to our boy, and most importantly, the advice and treatment. We have also never ever felt as though we have not had good value for money. Having the option of taking him to Swanscombe or meopham is also really helpful. Fortunately our pooch has thus far has been blessed with good health save for a small number of minor niggles along the way (eating a hair clip being one) so we haven't had the need to make use of all facilities available (same day CT scan and hydrotherapy pool) but it is great that they seem to be so "on the ball" with pushing to have the best services available for their patients. I could go on but essentially, we wouldn't dream of taking him anywhere else- even when not feeling himself he always wags his tail going into the vets and also coming out and that's all the endorsement we need. If he's happy, we're happy. Everyone we encounter makes a genuine effort to make your animal feel comfortable which they achieve without doubt. If L were rating this practice, he would give 5/5 bones for sure. Thanks to all staff and if you're thinking of registering your dog/cat/any other animal here, don't hesitate!!!!!

When my 16 year old cat, Reg broke his hind leg he was taken to the Meopham branch to have it amputated. He received first class treatment from the nurses & Tim who did a wonderful job of removing the leg. Reg was also shown lots of care from Lauren & the nurses at the Swanscombe branch were he had his follow-up appointments. All the vets & nurses at both branches do a wonderful job & genuinely seem to care for the animals. Thanks all x
