The Branch

Medivet Edenbridge, previously knowns as Lingfield Lodge was started in 1982, the present premises has been extended, re-equipped and refurbished in 2008. Situated close to Edenbridge, Dormansland and Lingfield we are easily found on the B2028, just West of Marsh Green. There is a large car park adjacent to the surgery which is down a private drive, with a beautiful, rural scene

What makes us unique?

Since 1982 the practice has held the contract to supply all veterinary services to Crayford Greyhound Stadium. This involves on of the vets attending all races and trails meetings, checking the dogs are fit and sound to race and offering first aid when necessary. Over this period they have gained a great deal of experience in dealing with racing injuries.

The branch is concerned about the environment, global warming and climate issues and are proactive to be environmentally friendly, with a negative carbon footprint. The surgery, three houses nearby and the grain drier are all heated by burning big straw bales, grown there on the farm.
