Manor Veterinary Clinic has been established in Folkestone since 1965. By 2008 the practice had outgrown its location in the heart of Folkestone, and we made the decision to move the clinic to a purpose built one 1.5 miles away.
As a result, we have a stunning purpose build practice on the Kent coast with up-to-date facilities, to name a few, a new ultrasound machine, 2 x capnography, scopes and up to date lab equipment. We have a large car park so parking isn’t an issue for staff. The nurses proudly have their own nurse consulting room from which they currently run successful clinics. We are close to the motorway and Folkestone town centre.

They have loads of experience and run their own consults. They are passionate about their work, and we encourage our nurses in their own individual interests giving time to do CPD and a yearly CPD allowance.
We have had our nurses take part in behaviour courses, feline nursing certificates, new graduate schemes, wound managements courses. We have 5 brilliant receptionists (3 of them have been with us forever!).
