Hello!

Thank you for choosing Hythe Vet Centre

As you’ll soon discover, Colin, Helen and the team are as passionate as you are giving your pets the very best care!
 
Our vet practice is independent and family-owned, helmed by Colin Armstrong (a local vet with seventeen years experience and a special interest in surgery) and his wife Helen.
 
Here at Hythe Vet Centre, we have all the latest training and equipment that you’d expect from an RCVS accredited practice, as well as a team who are totally committed to providing a personal and relaxed approach to pet care that sadly is all too rare these days. You know your pet best, so any recommendations we make will always be shaped in partnership with you.
 
Our friendly team are happy to answer any questions you may have about your pet’s health and wellbeing at any time.

Personal, Caring Service

We take pride in providing a personal and caring service, with the best independent vet care and advice tailored to each individual pet.

15-minute appointments

Our 15-minute appointment policy means you never feel rushed and have plenty of time to discuss all concerns with your vet.

The Best Advice

Our team of vets and nurses have been specially selected to offer you a total package of health care ranging from nutritional advice to diagnostics and surgery, within a reassuring, friendly environment.

“We think that how a practice ‘feels’ is just as important as the equipment it has and the services it offers when it comes to providing great veterinary care. So whilst we have lots of shiny kit, we also invest considerable time and enthusiasm into making sure our customer care is second to none. We promise that every member of our team will always be approachable, honest, compassionate and understanding; and we’ll never take your trust in us for granted”

You will struggle to find more compassionate people than the staff at Hythe Vet Centre. Our beloved dog was at the end of her life and needed their help to make it a peaceful end. Even during this time of COVID-19 and isolation, they made arrangements for us to go to an area where we could still be with her until the end whilst maintaining a safe distance from the staff. For this exceptional service, we were so grateful and overwhelmed.

Massive thank you to the wonderful staff here. When we heartbreakingly put our Lady T to sleep, they were so compassionate and caring and really did do their best by her. Afterwards we even received a card from them which was incredibly sweet. They truely care about animals here and aren't just in it to make a quick buck like a lot of vets. Would highly recommend these guys. Thanks again 💖

Left sitting a long time after appointment time without any pre warning or explanation. Eventually someone came out and said the vet shouldn't be long. Waited another 10 minutes before calling out behind the empty reception desk to inform the group if chatting staff that we had another appointment to get to. We were then seen by a vet who was great. Don't mind waiting if informed how long it was likely to be.

Tried this vet a few days ago, mostly because it is close to me. The place is easy to find, has it's own parking and is very smart inside. Colin and his staff were great and quickly sorted out the cat without stressing it out or breaking the bank. Very highly recommended and will use in future.

These guys are the best. Having moved to Hythe, I have experienced vets in both London and Maidstone. The vets and staff here are super friendly, very attentive and have their patients welfare as priority. Added to this, their fees are very reasonable.
Kindly took us in on very short notice when we were down on a day trip with a friend’s dog who gave us a scare by being sick! Very friendly and reassuring, the premises seemed well kept.
