Heronden Vets provides a full range of pet care services, including popular complementary treatments. If you have any questions about your pet’s need for treatment or a specific aspect of our service, please call the practice or email us on the link above.

Our veterinary care is underpinned not only by our amazing staff but also by top of the range equipment.

In-Patient Care

At Heronden Veterinary Practice we take in-patient care extremely seriously. We have excellent facilities and staff for in-patient care, overnight monitoring and critical care on site. However, if we deem your animal to require tertiary level care, then we will advise transfer to Vets Now, a hospital-status practice in Ashford.

Our in-patients can expect:

  • To be treated with as much love and kindness as though they were at home.
  • To receive a full thickness vet bed and heat pads as required.
  • To receive triage and monitoring of core clinical signs (temperature, respiration and pulse rates) as frequently as deemed necessary.
  • To receive blood tests and medication and diagnostic work-up appropriate to the individual’s needs.
  • To receive tailored nutrition.
  • To be cared for by Experienced Veterinary Surgeons and Registered Veterinary Nurses (RVNs).
