Here at Hythe Vet Centre we want to deliver the very best in professional veterinary care whilst maintaining a loving, caring and family ethos. After a long search for the right place for our passion, we believe that we have found it, here in Hythe.

Combining 25 years of experience in small animal veterinary practice, Colin, Helen and their team aim to provide a first class service to both you and your beloved pets.

We have applied for Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons General Practice recognition. This is a sought after accreditation that gives you peace of mind that our practice adheres to strict professional standards.

At Hythe Vet Centre we have invested in various new facilities and equipment that will allow us to provide excellent diagnostic and treatment options for your animals, with 24 hour emergency care on site. These include:
Dedicated parking.
Purpose built surgical theatre, imaging suite and kennels.
Spacious waiting area and large consulting rooms.
X-ray machine with digital processor allowing faster developing times.
An ultrasound scanner similar to those used in human hospitals.
Heated theatre table – to keep your loved ones cosy warm!
Air driven dental machine, not unlike what you would find at your own dentist!
The latest veterinary practice computer system - this will increase the efficiency of the mundane administration side of things.
An oxygen concentrator - this will provide the oxygen that we will use during anaesthetics. Its biggest bonus is that it means that we will not need regular oxygen bottle deliveries, reducing our environmental impact.
