Beacon View is proud to have been accredited by the Dog Friendly Clinic Scheme, an initiative run by Dogs Trust and the British Veterinary Behaviour Association (BVBA), to ensure the most comfortable veterinary care experience possible for dogs and their owners. We felt the scheme sat perfectly along side our Fear Free approach to veterinary care.
Many dogs find vet visits stressful, which can result in them being unwilling to enter clinics, being difficult to examine, and worried during treatment. The Dog Friendly Clinic scheme helps practice staff develop dog behaviour knowledge and skills so they can recognise and address early signs of anxiety and improve the welfare of dogs whilst in the clinic.
Through the scheme created by Dogs Trust and the BVBA, canine experts provide the tools for our team to learn more about dog behaviour, including how pain and health conditions can be contributing factors to behaviour, and how to reduce the impact of visiting the vet for dogs.

Beacon View is unlike any veterinary practice I have ever been to. Whenever I have taken my dog there the staff welcome us as we walk in and take interest in my dog which is so helpful. The waiting room is very comfortable and relaxing. The vets explain everything in language I can understand and are so kind. My dog recently had a very serious condition necessitating an operation which was dealt with by the staff at the surgery with kindness and professionalism. I would recommend them to anyone who loves their pet and wants the best care for them.

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.
