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:

Claire helped me take care of my elderly Golden Doodle at a different practice. I really liked her manner with him and her encouragement and advice to me when I was falling apart. I was delighted to find her again at Beacon View and have seen quite a bit of her and the team in the 9 weeks I’ve had my new dog! They are all so nice and Bertie is more than happy to go in with them. He’s had 2 procedures and the staff kept me informed every step of the way. The check ups are either done by email with photos, telephone or in person. Their aftercare is excellent too. It’s good to know that the whole team work in the same way as Claire and I would definitely recommend them.

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.
