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 keep our prices as fair as possible. As an independent practice we do not have shareholders to answer to or growth targets to meet.
Due to a national vaccine shortage, we will be prioritising unvaccinated kittens and cats needing their first annual booster. Adult cats who have received their vaccine regularly in previous years are considered to be at lower risk. Please call the clinic (01892 546000 Southborough or 01892 487174 Pembury) for more information. Thank you for your understanding.
Increased demand for vet care
Due to increased demand for our services, we have had to once more introduce a waiting list for new registrations.
We are working hard to try to increase provision but are mindful of our need to ensure we can provide a good service to those patients currently registered with us. To be added to the waiting list please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the reception team on 01892 546000.
Pet travel to the EU
Since the UK left the EU, Pet Passports issued by UK vets are no longer valid and we are not permitted to update EU Pet Passports (except to add worming information).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 eight 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.
Thank you so much for making our dog feel better and looking after her. What would she do without you! Thank you for being there for her. Very much appreciated. All the best!
Thank you all for being so caring and kind during the time I have been coming to Dacre House with Blue.
To the staff at Dacre House. Thank you so much! You guys have been so amazing helping me look after Twinkle. You have been so helpful and thanks to you she will hopefully make a full recovery. I can't appreciate your care enough. See you soon with my other two nutty kittens, love...
Thank you for saving Phiphi's life. She is so happy to be home again, and feeling much more comfortable. She was looked after wonderfully...thank you again.
We wanted to say thank you for your loving care of our Sophie during her high risk operation. Your expertise brought her back to us...
