Abbeywell Veterinary Clinic

Think of us as your family vet, working with you to keep your furry family members happy and healthy. Our friendly surgery is modern and fully equipped so we can always provide the best possible care - but we’re local, independent and not part of a big corporate machine with shareholders that need to be kept happy. We're a true neighbourhood vet and we live locally, too.

Building bonds and relationships with the pets we care for is really important to our team. By getting to know you and your pet, we hope that you will feel comfortable discussing all aspects of their care and hopefully your pet will be less stressed and feel more relaxed when coming along to see us.

The passion and dedication of our Team is continuously recognised with awards and nominations such as Best UK Vet Practice, Best Small Animal Practice in Kent, Gold Award for Feline Care, Best Customer Service & Experience – to name but a few! Our vets have over 40 years experience between them and they work with some of the country's leading specialists that regularly visit our clinic, so you can always rest assured that you're in the safest hands and receiving the very best care.

As your family vet, we’ll take joint responsibility for your pet’s health and wellbeing and together we can make sure your loyal companion enjoys a long, happy and healthy life.

Everyone at the practice is friendly, helpful and very professional. It’s always stressful for the pets to visit a vet, but at Abbeywell they’re treated and handled with such care.

Lovely, caring staff. Prices seem to be about average (hence the 4 stars). I feel like they really love my pet and have his welfare at heart which makes the whole thing much less traumatic for both of us! I much prefer visiting an independent surgery and am glad I can support Abbeywell practice.

The whole practice was very good, Paddy was very stressed having arrived at the surgery, and the vet was very good with him. The only thing I would say is the idea that we have to pay the first 200.00 pounds before we make a claim for people on benefits like us, will not be easy I feel that this policy needs reviewing and changing after all we already have to pay excess on the insurance before we can claim, I feel it's unfair. Please consider changing this policy, we will have to seriously consider moving vets if we have to claim for any reason. Our cats are both 9yrs old, I can't afford the expense of paying an extra 200.00 pound. I would really like it if you could stop this charge.

This was my first proper visit to Abbeywell. The two ladies on reception were very friendly and welcoming. The vet carried out his tasks efficiently and very professionally. I cannot fault what I experienced today. Excellent service and would highly recommend.

I have recently changed to Abbeywell and have been very pleased with the treatment both myself and my dog have received. All the staff we have met have been friendly, polite and helpful. My dog has been seeing Mike, who takes the time to explain to me, the various conditions, she is suffering from. What I can do to help her, and of course what he is going to do. I am very happy with this vets and would definitely recommend.
