From the very start we designed Beacon View to be a Cat Friendly Clinic, to minimise stress and meet the specific needs of our feline friends. Our efforts were awarded the highest gold standard ISFM award.
This is an internationally-recognised accreditation and certifies the practice meets rigorous standards set by the ISFM. We are ecstatic that our dedication to cats has been recognised, and we are the only vets in the Deal and Sandwich area to have been awarded gold cat friendly status.
At Beacon View we understand that cats have very specific needs. Cats not only have a range of diseases which are completely unique, they also have very different temperaments to their canine cousins and should be handled and treated in a different way.
Taking your cat to the Vet can be stressful for both you and your cat. That’s why at Beacon View we have taken every possible step to minimize stress. We have a cat only waiting area and dedicated consulting room, so there are no doggy smells to be worried about. Our team are Fear Free trained professionals, experts in cat friendly handling and care.
Our Gold Award Winning Facilities include:

Three weeks ago, Snoopy, our 10 ten year old Jack Russell, had a growth removed from under an eyelid. From initial consultation through to the op. itself and aftercare, Claire and everyone at the practice looked after him superbly well. Snoopy is now back to his handsome self and actually enjoys visiting the practice. That has never happened before

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!

Decided to change vets as I was so concerned re an ongoing problem with a cat's dental problem. I was so grateful and relieved to experience enormous help from both receptionist and vet. A lovely atmosphere in the practice, light, and comfortable, even the cat settled down in no time.

We are very confident that our cats health is in expert and caring hands. The practice was recommended to us by a family member because of the excellent and prompt treatment her pet received. Claire and team always seem to have time to listen and speak to us and know our, and our cats foibles. It's reassuring that we can get blood test results quickly, Our cat had to have several teeth extracted which is a tricky operation but it went exceptionally well, and the cat made a full recovery,. We have already recommended to friends. Thank you Beacon View. You're a great team
