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.
We are currently providing a restricted service in line with BVA guidelines. Please DO NOT attend the clinic if you have a fever or a new cough, or have been in contact with someone else with these symptoms in the last 14 days. Please come to the reception window for service then wait in the car park. Prescriptions and medications will be provided at the window. If you have an appointment, the vet will see you in the car park then take your pet into the clinic for examination and treatment. Members of the public are not currently allowed inside the building. Please call reception for more information.
We are proud to have been nominated for the PetPlan Practice of the Year award for the last five 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!

We are keen to promote learning.

We offer training placements for veterinary students and work experience for school pupils.
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...
"This card brings special thanks from me...because I'm as pleased as pleased can bee! Thank you." Thank you so much for being such a kind person and such an avid animal lover. As a family, we want to thank you for being willing to wake up at 11.30pm to help a little ghost of a dog and put up with near hysterical women. We are eternally grateful!
Dear Bradley, Winnie and I would like to say thank you so much for your help. Winnie is so much better now, eating everything in sight!
We would just like to mention how pleased we are that we were recommended Dacre House for our GSD who can get aggressive with strangers. After being told by our previous Vet not to bring our GSD in unless its an emergency. It was a breath of fresh air to meet Jane. She is calm and confident...and just gets on with the job in hand...
Thank you all for taking such good care of me when I was a big baby! Love, FANG
