Welcome to Beacon View Vets

Our pets are always there for us - whether it’s bounding to the door when we come home, or offering a furry cuddle when we’re sad. That’s why at Beacon View Vets we will always be here for your pets - to help them continue to stay healthy, or care for them when they are sick.

Entrusting someone else with the wellbeing of your pet is an important decision, and for us, exceptional veterinary service is about more than just medical treatment. At Beacon View, you will be greeted with a smile, welcomed into a calming environment, listened to and treated as a partner in your pet's care.

Claire and her team are amazing, always caring and friendly and go above and beyond to keep pets happy and healthy. Always a good experience even in these difficult Covid-19 times. Highly recommend

We were recommended Beacon View by a very experienced, but retired vet we know. They didn’t disappoint, lovely & friendly, but more importantly very knowledgable staff. We have a plan in place for a long term sick dog and feel comfortable we moved to the right vets who will look after our very important furry members of the family. Would happily recommend. Thank you!

I have just moved to Beacon View as I ha d heard amazing reports about how wonderful they all were. After my first visit with our 10 week old puppy, I was not disappointed. On arrival, we received the warmest, most friendly welcome from the lovely girls in reception. All eager for puppy cuddles!! Claire was also so kind and caring. It was lovely to see her interact with our fur baby. We’d not experienced that level of compassion previously. I’m absolutely delighted and so glad we’ve moved.

Just a massive gratitude post to Claire and her team @ Beacon View Vets. We very nearly lost our little man last week when he got a pig snout stuck in his throat. We had never seen a blue dog until Wednesday. We are so very grateful and lucky to have this wonderful team on our doorstep. We ❤️ You all. Thank you.

Unfortunately I have had 2 emergencies within 2 week with 2 of my pets. Claire was immediately on hand for both and did a fantastic job, I'm honesty not sure the first would have survived without her intervention!! Also carried out a spay on my young dog, very neat, efficient and healing incredibly well. I can't recommend or thank Claire and her team enough.

Just started using this practice as it's lovely and close to us. We have a new pup so it was the perfect time to try them out. Couldn't ask for friendlier or more welcoming people. I'm sure our little dog will be very well cared for here.

The environment was calm and well appointed, and the staff were so lovely. We really felt they took care of our cat, and were kind and patient with us. Taking your pet to the Vets can make you feel very vulnerable, but all the staff treated us with the utmost empathy and care, and took pains to communicate how they were caring for Scout before, during and after her operation. This was a much better experience than we've had with other surgeries in the past, and we'd absolutely recommend Beacon View. Thanks to you all :)
