Deneland Boarding Kennels & Cattery

Turnagain Lodge, Hook Green Lane, Dartford, Wilmington DA2 7AJ, UK – 01322 225191

Excellent boarding kennels. Our family have used it since the 1960's. Have just picked our current 2 dogs up. They came home well fed, happy, and spotlessly clean. I cannot fault this boarding kennels.

Just collected our dog after a weeks stay and he is totally happy I will them again.

Davanden Kennels

Cotton Ln, Dartford, Greenhithe DA9 9BB, UK – 01322 222192

Our cats have been there three times and haven't died so it's all good.

We have several dogs with behavioural problems, most kennels either didn’t give the care you would expect or just took them in for easy money not giving medication or listening to us about separating the dogs which caused them anxiety, Barry & his family are the exception, we would not take our dogs anywhere else & I cannot recommend this kennel enough.

Vets

Medivet Dartford 24 Hour Continuous Care and Emergency Centre

Enterprise House, 8 Essex Rd, Dartford DA1 2AU, UK – 01322 897977

We cannot speak highly enough of the whole team - the vets, nurses and reception are so friendly, passionate and professional. Another veterinary surgery had written our cat off and suggested there was nothing more they could do for her, but thanks to Leon and Sidney's expertise and incredible level of care she's still with us a year later. Amazing vets! There are many veterinary surgeries nearby but we choose to do the 45min round trip to Medivet Dartford, we wouldn't take our pets anywhere else.

A very well deserved 5 * , Leon and his team are the nicest, kindest and most professional people I have ever come across at a veterinary clinic. Thankyou so much Denise and ' Dolly '.

Mead Veterinary Centre (Dartford)

Mead Rd, Dartford DA1 2RH, UK – 01322 223311

We started using this vets a couple of years ago when my childrens' bunnies were taken ill. They were so caring and compassionate particularly when one of the bunnies had to euthanised. The let the children have time with their bunny and allowed us to leave via the back door so the children (15 year olds) didn't have to walk through the reception area in floods of tears. Since then they have been looking after our foster cat and I'm always really happy with the care and attention she receives. I couldn't recommend them more highly.

I have been going there for many, many, year's with My Cats. Very Caring Vets and they always care for Mt Animals. I would thoroughly recommend.

easipetcare Dartford

2 Kent Rd, Dartford DA1 2DA, UK – 01322 223447

Lovely vets. All the staff seem to love the pets that pass through their doors. Good prices across the board with a number of special offers such as inoculations for all our furry friends. I will be with easipetcare for a long time.

Excellent on all aspects. They really are the most caring vets I have ever known even from the reception staff who always make an effort to say hello to my dogs. They are so fair and reasonable with their prices too which makes a huge difference with 4 dogs. Also the drop in daily clinic is so much better than having to make an appointment. I think easipetcare are wonderful

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
