Newly established practice Whitstable Bay Vets is the result of many years of dreaming and planning on the part of husband and wife vet team Adam and Vicky Scutt. They designed every aspect of the practice to be welcoming and convenient with impressive fully equipped facilities to provide comprehensive, high-quality care of the highest clinical standard for the pets of Whitstable, Canterbury and the surrounding area of Kent.

Having worked in practices all over Kent, they both knew that they wanted to do things a bit differently – with a smile, a gentle hand and the space and time to do things right. With a handpicked team of friendly and experienced nurses and receptionists to help bring their dream alive they’ve created a practice that’s unique and just a bit special.
