125 years old, and planning for 125 more
We’re the world’s largest employee-owned vet group – and proud of it
We do things differently at Pennard Vets.
That starts with being the world’s largest employee-owned vet group, but it doesn’t stop there.
Across our practices in Allington, Borough Green, Langley Park, Maidstone, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and West Malling, we go above and beyond to provide the highest possible levels of care, while making a positive difference to our communities.
We reinvest our profits to ensure that our team have access to the best facilities, equipment and training, and we embrace the future, leading the way with the use of technology such as PetsApp, and providing an innovative Pet Health Club to cover all of our patient’s needs.
As further evidence of our pioneering spirit, in 2022 we became the first veterinary practice in Europe to be classified as a B Corp – meaning we “voluntarily meet higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance”.

Join the Pennard Vet Pet Health Club
We do things differently, and our Pet Health Club works differently, too. We offer our members unlimited vet visits throughout the year as standard. We love our patients, and we believe in giving them the right care, in the right way and at the right time. We feel that the best way to do this is to empower you to bring them in to see us, or chat to us via a video consult, whenever you have a concern about their wellbeing.

What people say about us
Simply the very best Vets. They have always been there for us in both happy (new puppy) and sad (palliative care) times 24/7. Kind, caring and they get to know owners and their pets. You always get a warm welcome from the whole team.
Pennard Vets are lovely. They treat your beloved pets as if they are their own. Staff are all patient, kind and understanding of the crazy love we have for our fur babies. We’ve been going here for eight years and I wouldn’t dream of taking our lil girlie anywhere else.
