Dog Friendly Accredited Vets

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.

Dog friendly vet for Deal and Sandwich

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.

I have recently been taking my dog to see Katie, who is really fantastic. She listens really well and is really knowledgeable. It feels like she really cares about my dog, which is lovely, and that she would really strive for the best outcome.

After poor experiences at another vet we changed to Beacon and WOW! what a difference! They listened, understood our anxiety and explained all options clearly with no pressure - and so good with our dog Millie A real five star experience.

The most amazing care and service for our dog. Fabulous attention, care and understanding. Excellent booking system and follow up. We have the complete care package they offer and this is just brilliant; I can barely believe how much is included and it is so nice that the team get to know you - a real family feeling.

My cats were very calm and relaxed during their experience, Tess the vet was great with them and the staff were all very friendly and the whole practice was very clean.

Highly recommend Claire and her team at Beacon View. My two usually stressy cats took their annual jabs in their stride this morning. Separate waiting areas makes a huge difference and the facilities are fantastic. Thank you Claire and the team.

Our first visit to Vet Claire was a breeze! Our 9 week old Labrador pup was perfectly happy to go off in Claire’s cuddling arms for a check up. Clean bill of health given and I could even watch her with the IPad! Such an amazing service and we’ll be back next week!

Just started using this practice as it's lovely and close to us. We have a new pup so it was the perfect time to try them out. Couldn't ask for friendlier or more welcoming people. I'm sure our little dog will be very well cared for here.

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 was recommended Beacon View by a friend and was not disappointed. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming and Sorrel was very kind and professional. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough. Such a wonderful experience for me and my dog. Thank you.

Thank you Claire and Josh for your efficient and comprehensive care of our little rescue dog, Summer. We now feel completely reassured and confident and cannot recommend or thank you enough!
