Welcome to Sittivets
Spread of Covid 19 has prompted further Government advice regarding limiting contact between people to protect everyone, ensure NHS resources are available for everyone who needs them, and that we have enough healthcare professionals available to care for those affected with this and any other illness or injury.
Veterinary practices have a huge responsibility to protect animal health and welfare and support the farming sector in keeping delivering food to the nation whilst safeguarding public health and under guidance from our professional governing bodies we must act responsibly to prioritise services and maintain this difficult balance.
We must ask you to telephone the practice before attending at any time. It is likely that in some cases we can advise you and prescribe treatment over the telephone.
If your pet needs treatment, you will be asked to come to our surgery where we have facilities and staff ready. It will be necessary to ask you to remain outside the building while we collect your pet and continue to talk to you by telephone as we examine and treat them.
To avoid any unnecessary cross–contamination it is preferable to pay with card.

We are a practice that has a well-earned reputation for being a friendly surgery, with sympathetic and understanding staff. Our aim has always been to deliver an exceptional level of veterinary care at affordable prices. This has enabled us to remain one of the most popular veterinary surgeries in the Sittingbourne area since the practice was first established by John McCaig over 30 years ago. Still privately owned we continue to offer veterinary excellence within the community and surrounding local areas.
Located in a purpose-built surgery we have ample parking, a bright, spacious waiting room and large consult rooms. We are staffed by a great team of hard-working, dedicated and caring vets and nurses, each bringing their own skills and interests to the practice. We treat dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, all small furries, chickens and a variety of exotics.
We offer excellent levels of care and expertise in surgery, medicine & orthopaedics in our modern, well-equipped practice here at Sittivets and also at our four state of the art surgeries at Chatham, Kingshill, Harrietsham and Mote Park.
