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Since the UK left the EU, Pet Passports issued by UK vets are no longer valid and we are not permitted to update EU Pet Passports (except to add worming information).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 for looking after Max!
To everyone at Dacre House, thank you so much for the past year I have learnt so much. I am sorry to leave but I hope you will allow me back after my exams. I cannot tell you how grateful I am for this opportunity.
...just to thank you ALL for the care you gave our dog when she was sick. You were fantastic and I will come back again and recommend you to all my friends, as you were recommended to me. Dotty is doing good at the moment, and if that changes you will be the first to hear about it. Thank you again.
Thank you all so much for the care and kindness you gave to our ‘Little Coco’ x
We cannot express how grateful we are, you saved our little Winston and we will never forget all the love and care he received from all of the team!
