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 the vet that mended my paw...With all my slobbery kisses. I'm sorry for growling at you on Saturday but thank you for making my wrist better so quickly. By Sunday my paw was fully on the ground and by Monday I was running around the garden a bit then I limped a bit! I am nearly back to myself, especially play with my best buddy Murphy the cat...
Thank you so much for what you did for Lilly...it was very comforting to know she was in excellent hands. Thank you so much again.
...thank you to you all for the wonderful care that you have shown to Raki during his last year or so...Particularly Becky. Also a very big thank you to Bradley for his kindness when we finally had to put Raki to sleep...You guys all do an amazing job...when a situation arises like this I can’t imagine how hard it must be for you all as well.
To Bradley and the team. Thank you so much for looking after Jasper over the years.
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.
