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!
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.
To all the lovely vets and nurses. Thank you so much for caring for our beautiful Ben. You have all been so great, we are so grateful. Thank you so much. All our love and thanks...
Words will never be enough for the gentleness and kindness that you had to Rosie during her last few years. Also, the kindness that you gave to me - I know that every person's dog is very special to them but she was such a massive part of my life...(we) were very lucky that you were her vet - we couldn't have wished for a nicer, kinder person.
Dear Bradley and lovely assistant! Thank you for coming to the house last weekend for Ben...we were all very grateful for your sympathetic and kind way with Ben and us...thank you again.
Dear Bradley, Jane and all the other wonderful staff at Dacre House. Thank you so much for all the fantastic care of Amber, Buttons and Chloe over the last few years...when we have pets again (sometime in the future) we will certainly be back! We will also recommend you at every opportunity. With very many thanks and best wishes.
Thank you for what you did for Sasha, you actually cared for her it wasn't just a job to you.
