An independent, community-centred practice offering excellent and affordable veterinary care for pets and their owners in and around Tunbridge Wells.
Established over 30 years ago, our aims remain the same - to provide clinical excellence in a caring, compassionate environment and to keeping our prices as fair as possible. As an independent practice we do not have shareholders to answer to or growth targets to meet.
Pet travel to the EU
Since the UK left the EU, EU Pet Passports issued by UK vets are no longer valid and UK vets are not permitted to update EU Pet Passports (except to add worming information). To travel to the EU now with a dog, cat or ferret you will need an Animal Health Certificate.
More information can be found by clicking here, or by visiting the APHA pages at gov.uk.
We are proud to have been nominated for the PetPlan Practice of the Year award for the last seven years running - a big thanks to those who voted. We will continue to strive to provide the best care for our patients. A number of our staff members have also received nominations in their individual categories!
Animal Health and Welfare
Dacre House is proud to be a member of the International Society of Feline Medicine and the Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund. We carry out work for a number of charities including the Dogs Trust, Cats Protection and the RSPCA.
Education and Training
We are keen to promote learning. Our vets are regularly attending meetings and undertaking courses; a number of our support staff have completed diplomas with us or are currently studying in partnership with various colleges. We offer training placements for veterinary students and work experience for school pupils.
I wish to thank you for doing what had to be done in such a dignified and professional way but with a degree of sympathy and understanding. You not only acted correctly but said the right things and in the right way. You are a credit to the practice and your profession. Thank you.
Thank you for what you did for Sasha, you actually cared for her it wasn't just a job to you.
