We’re here when you need us

Although we work on a pre-booked appointment basis, we will re-organise the workload in the practice to ensure appointments are available at short notice when required. And of course, we will always take care of an emergency when the need arises.

We put a lot of thought into designing and equipping our practice, because we wanted to ensure that we can do as much as possible, here in Hythe.

Our vet services include:

  • Purpose-built theatre, imaging suite and species-specific kennels
  • Spacious waiting area
  • Vet and nurse consultations
  • Full range of nurse clinics including weight checks and dental advice
  • Complimentary therapies such as Class 4 Laser Therapy
  • Full diagnostics: in-house lab, digital x-ray, ultrasound
  • Fully-equipped surgical theatre
  • Dental facilities
  • Plentiful on-site parking

The vets here are the most compassionate and caring people I have ever had. There is such a personal touch in their professional work. They really care about you and your animal. Highly recommended.

Emergencies and out-of-hours

Emergencies occurring during our normal working hours will always be dealt with as a priority.

To keep our team fresh and at their best every day, they need their rest! Therefore, we use a dedicated out-of-hours provider to deal with any emergencies occurring outside of our normal working hours.

The vets and nurses on duty there work only nights and weekends, so they are always at their best when we are resting, ready for the following day. They can offer advice over the telephone where appropriate and have fully-equipped facilities dedicated to emergency care at their base in Ashford, easily accessible by car.

We believe this offers the best level of care to you and your pet.

If you have an emergency please call the practice as normal (if you call out-of-hours, your call will be redirected):

Out-of-hours care is provided by:

Inpatients

Occasionally pets may need to stay overnight, if they are particularly unwell or receiving fluids or medicines throughout the night. Sometimes, it is appropriate for them to stay here at Hythe Vet Centre. If they require intensive monitoring, they may need to be transferred to our out-of-hours provider. This is assessed on a case-by-case basis, with our focus always being on what offers your pet the best level of care and quickest recovery.

Great help for @barkingmadashford in sorting bertie's claw while he was on holiday with us. 😊

Surgery

Operations are performed Monday to Friday in our dedicated theatre. Most patients return home the same day. We recommend pre-anaesthetic blood testing to help assess and minimise any risk associated with anaesthesia and surgery – your vet or nurse will discuss this with you on a case-by-case basis.

As standard, we provide an intravenous fluid and full monitoring of blood pressure, oxygen saturation and temperature during anaesthesia. Our operating table is heated to keep your pet warm while they are sleeping and they will be monitored throughout by a qualified veterinary nurse. We also provide a Class 4 Laser therapy to encourage reduced inflammation postoperatively.

They will recover in a warm, quiet, comfortable environment and will be allowed home as soon as they are ready.

Fair and affordable pricing

We try to keep our fees reasonable while maintaining and constantly improving the level of service, expertise and equipment at the surgery. We will always provide a detailed treatment plan and associated costs.
 
Here at Hythe Vet Centre, we work hard to ensure that we always offer great value for the excellent care your pet deserves whilst maintaining and improving the level of service and equipment at the surgery. We believe in transparent, affordable pricing at all times:
 
  • We explain recommended treatments clearly, detailing the price of each upfront so that you can always make informed choices and there are no nasty surprises!
  • Our Pet Health Plans allow you to spread the cost of routine preventative care, as well as including unlimited consultations.

Our Pet Health Club helps spread the cost of routine preventative care, as well as including unlimited consultations. We also recommend pet insurance to cover any unforeseen illnesses or injuries.

I cannot rate the excellence of this establishment too highly. I telephoned at 10.15 am yesterday as my friend was concerned about her cat. At 2pm we were in the consulting room with Colin and he had the full medical history of the cat obtained from its previous vets. Sadly the cat had to be put to sleep but the care of Colin and all his team was outstanding. From the greeting as we arrived "this must be handsome Samson", to the highly professional skill and knowledge of Colin coupled with his deeply compassionate care and kindness, to the final 'don't worry about paying now come back when you are ready' - they all made the traumatic experience so much easier to bear. My friend is in her 70's and has had cats since she was 5. She said she had never in all that time experienced care like this

Euthanasia

Should the sad time arrive that you have to consider saying goodbye to your pet, rest assured that our entire team have received training in pet bereavement. We can offer home visits as well as free nurse consultations to discuss the procedure ahead of time and to support you afterwards.
 
We are always available for a chat if you have any concerns or wish to discuss any aspect of this part of our service.

Referrals

Occasionally pets require treatment or facilities beyond that which we can offer. On these occasions, we will only send you and your pet to a specialist we trust to offer the highest level of care.

I think they are the best vets in the area, I cannot praise all the staff highly enough

Repeat Prescriptions

Please allow 48 hours for any repeat medication or food requests, so we can have any items ready in stock and checked by a vet.

Written Prescription Policy:

 
We have an open policy when it comes to prices, and we’re happy to provide a written prescription for your pet which will last for 6 months. This prescription will allow you to gain medication from another veterinary surgery or pharmacy. When requesting a written prescription, please allow 3-5 days notice.
 
To complete a written prescription a vet must assess your pet every 6 months, but this may vary depending on individual circumstances to ensure they are in the best of health.
