Avenue Boarding Cattery

38 Plains Ave, Maidstone ME15 7AU, UK

This cattery is the best around and I wouldn't use any other! My two cats always are so relaxed when staying here and I can relax knowing that Janine is taking care of them. The cattery is so clean and every need is catered for, cannot recommend Avenue Boarding Cattery enough. This is a small cattery and I think this is what makes it so great, individual care is given to each guest and the accommodation is second to none - if you want 5* lodgings for your cat whilst you are away book now!!

Very friendly very accommodating will certainly use again.

Pennard Vets Maidstone

27 College Rd, Maidstone ME15 6SX, UK – 01622 752154

An excellent small vet practice, part of a larger Kent-wide practice which offers a huge range of services. I've used three branches and all the vets are very pleasant, extremely kind to the animals. I had to have an ill cat put to sleep earlier this year-it was done so sensitively. My dog likes going too!

Excellent care and friendly vets.

Newnham Court Veterinary Hospital

Bearsted Rd, Weavering, Maidstone ME14 5EL, UK – 01622 734555

We have three gorgeous dogs and have visited a fair few vets in their lifetime - but the care and attention they get here is superb. Thank you for being totally honest and advising that we take the decision that is good for our dog but poor for your finances. We need more vets like you guys who so obviously, openly and honestly put pets first. Thank you for not operating on Tinks today and for being wonderful vets to all our other dogs x

We started going to Newnham Court as we were referred for Accupuncture, and quickly realised that the level of care that our dog received and the fantastic Customer Service we received, was far superior to our original vets. Not only is our Dog in better condition now, also the prices are very competetive.

Alphapet Veterinary Centre

4 Boxley Rd, Maidstone ME14 2TH, UK – 01622 688557

Fantastic - we have taken our dogs there for vaccinations since moving to Kent. We were very impressed by the care and interest shown in our four dogs of whom we are very proud. A short while ago our jack russell was operated on to removed a large lump. Despite the difficult surgery and high risk to a 13 year old dog, the staff made sure it all went smoothly and our dog was very well looked after. We have seen several of the vets and all have been very caring and have not 'rushed' us out of the room as so many often do. Would recommend Alphapet to anyone and can't thank them enough for how they have cared for my little dog and reassured us as owners.

I have been taking my pets to Alphapet for about 20 years. My pets have always had EXCEPTIONAL CARE from the vets and nurses alike. They ALWAYS have the animals best interest at heart. The Vets and nurses are knowledgeable, up to date, caring and compassionate. The building might not be the most beautiful, but this is purely cosmetic as the staff certainly make up for it !! I have to travel for over 1/2 an hour to get to the surgery and pass several vets 'en route' I think that this sums up how I feel about the surgery. I would like to thank all the staff for their dedication and hard work and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone !

This has got much more humane. The Pet Travel Scheme allows pet animals from certain countries to enter the UK without quarantine, as long as they meet certain conditions. The Scheme also means that people in the UK can, having taken their pets to these countries, bring them back without the need for quarantine
