I just want to write to you to say how impressed I was with the service I received from all the staff and vets at Sevenoaks Pennards when I brought Trixie in for her first appointment with the nurse and vet yesterday. I was given so much useful information and advice which as a first time dog owner I really valued. Trixie as an 8 week old puppy was completely at ease during her visit and I am sure is going to enjoy the puppy party. Thank you all.

Angus was born with an undescended testicle, and we'd waiting as long as we dare. But at 15 months old there was still no sign of it, so surgery was recommended. I was warned that it might be difficult as it couldn't be felt at all, and Angus is a 70kg Leonberger! He ended up needing quite a large and tricky operation. Peter called me as soon as he'd finished operating to tell me all had gone well, and the nurses rang me a couple more times through the afternoon to keep me updated. I picked him up the same day and other than looking understandably sorry for himself, he's absolutely fine. Although I pity whichever of you has to get 35 staples out of a much more awake and wriggly Leonberger than when they went in! Thank you all. Richard & Angus

My family and I have used Pennards for over 40 years, and would recommend anyone to go there. All the vets are highly professional and friendly, you feel they genuinely care about each animal. They offer such a wide range of services and treatments yet never push the higher priced treatments which would be upsetting if you couldn't afford it. Each vet has a different area of expertise and they have many extremely impressive contacts if referral to a specialist hospital is needed. People have said to me that Pennards can be more expensive than some practices but for the small extra cost I get 24hour support from qualified vets at the practise I use, not a random emergency vet who doesn't know my pet. I have had free phone support and advice from the vets themselves when I cannot get to the surgery or just have a query about my pets health. I have turned up unannounced in a panic and have been instantly seen and treated. I have also turned up at the Borough Green vets With minimal notice and been seen within half an hour of my phone call so I didn't have to wait until the next day for an appointment. I'm a massive fan of Pennards and would recommend this practise without reserve.

I owe a big thank you to Dr Peter Van Dongen and Becca, Hannah and Lauren, his staff of nurses, for the most extensif rehabilitation program I have ever come across, put in place to try to save Bertie beagle's leg. Bertie had an operation at NSRC for a prolapsed disc and inflammed sciatic nerve, followed by a second operation to biopsy his sciatic nerve as he was not responding to steroids. He was in excruciating pain, unable to use his left leg, which was loosing muscle at an alarming rate. The program they devised to avoid amputation meant Bertie went in from 9 am until 6 pm to have several sessions of massage, hydro, exercises,tens and laser spread over the day. He has been going back every day with a wagging tail; he now seems free of pain and is showing signs of reusing his leg. Peter and his nurses have persevered with Bertie despite the fact that he is distrustful of strangers and can be difficult to deal with. Their professional efforts and dedication have known no boundaries.

Thank you Pennards. Our ageing Staffie Jess was recently rushed to Pennards following a collapse. She had suffered a burst spleen. The whole team were fantastic, from Stephan who operated on Jess to Ella who had so much patience and understanding, guiding us through exactly what was happening, progress and expectations very step of the way. Also the nurses who sat with her through the night and nursed her through her blood transfusion. The whole teams professionalism and care were outstanding. We have always found everyone at the practice cheerful and friendly. It is a lovely atmosphere and nothing is too much trouble. We are so thankful to have found such a brilliant veterinary team.

Immediately I walked into the clinic I felt a confidence and felt sure that you could help us. Thank you for the care and consideration offered to me and Sunny. It is a huge relief that Sunny's condition has at last been properly diagnosed and rather scary that he could have been x rayed and undergone surgery with my normal vet which would have been totally unnecessary and possibly left him with complications to his knees which were sound in the first place. Very scary indeed, I noticed that Sunny accepted a treat from you after the orthopaedic examination. It is very unusual for him to take a treat from a 'stranger' and is a measure of how he accepted and liked you !!!!! Thank you so much Peter and for the information that you sent to me. I have to say, I shed a tear of pleasure driving home ! Best wishes Karen Down and Sunny the whippet !!!

I would just like to say a big thank you to Peter and the team for looking after Ellie for me. I am very impressed with the way she has been treated. You took your time to sit down & explain to her condition with me so it was understood. If I have any fitness issues with my dogs I will be returning. Thank you again Kathryn & Ellie

My collie x German Shepherd at 7 years of age was suffering with extreme hip dysplasia. Following consults with Peter and hydrotherapy sessions I came to the decision to get his hip replaced by a visiting specialist vet. He is now a different dog and I cannot thank the vets and nurses and hydrotherapist who have aided in this. My dog who was unable to jump up for years can now jump up and open doors by pulling down the door handles!

My daughter's rabbit and guinea pigs always stay at Pennards when we go on holiday, and are so well looked after by Becky and the team. We can enjoy ourselves safe in the knowledge that all their needs are being cared for. Thank you for such wonderful care!
