Cats Friendly Vets

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.

Claire is absolutely brilliant and Reggie adores going to the vets! They are professional and kind and handle the animals very well. Booking an appointment is easy and uncomplicated and as I work full time they are always accommodating. We trust Beacon View to look after our lovely dog and keep him well. Thank you Claire and all your team.

Herbert waiting on Friday for his appointment for his vaccinations at Beacon View Vets. They are all so friendly and helpful there. Herbert wasn’t as scared as he was at the previous vets. In fact he was quite calm. Thanks to all the staff there. Highly recommend this vet practice!

Fabulous place. Friendly and welcoming.. clean and modern with some very well thought out ideas to make the trip better for both owner and pets. You can see Claire loves the animals - your animals will be relaxed and happy in her company and I wouldn’t hesitate to take my animals here again.

I would recommend Beacon View Vets, the team provided a warm welcome, calm and relaxed environment and gave my injured cat all the care and love they could possibly give. She (Phoebe) is fully recovered and enjoying the wind in her whiskers and basking in the sunshine, as well as staying away from the bigger cats.
