our two branch practices in Hythe and New Romney. We offer premium veterinary services to the South Kent region whilst taking referrals from other IVC Evidensia practices in the local area. Our branch practices are well equipped for the day to day cases which present but also some of the more challenging cases.

Our group is made up of up to 12 full time vets and 24 nurses (18 RVNs, 4 SVNs and 2 kennel assistants). All our practices work hard to strive for excellence but in a relaxed environment.
