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:

I cannot recommend Claire and her team enough. One day after registering we needed her help for our dog. The skill, efficiency, dog. The skill, efficiency, friendliness and support were truly exceptional. Within 48 hours our dog was also seen by the ophthalmologist specialist who is part of the team. They were all truly brilliant; we have never been so well looked after before.

I can’t thank Claire enough.... after a long walk with Cookie the cocker spaniel he came home with a grass dart in his ear.... we rang the vets and too out surprise Claire picked up the phone .... we explained what had happened and she told us she had just got home, to give her half an hour and she would be back with us..... she examined Cookie and told us that he would have to be sedated to remove it.... pain killers were given and he’s due for the procedure today ...... Cookie is more than just a dog to me.... he’s helped me through loosing my dad and is more like a friend than a pet .... i just wanted to say Thank you soooo much for what you have done to make sure Cookie was comfortable and for turning out when you had only just got home .... I cannot recommend enough

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.
