About Us

Welcome to The Forest Vet, a veterinary practice specialising in high quality healthcare for small animals. Located in Maresfield, close to Uckfield in East Sussex ,the practice has been purpose built to achieve the most up to date and modern approach to Veterinary work for pets including separate dog and cat wards, two surgical suites, digital x-ray and blood machines that will give results in just 7 minutes so you can enjoy a cup of tea on the sofa in reception and then discuss results with the Vet immediately afterwards.

The Forest Vet has been set up by Dr Rachael V. Nair, our Veterinary surgeon, to achieve the level of care for all patients that she expects for own dog, Bertie and her cat Lady FuFu.

We aim to provide veterinary best practice at affordable prices for everyone in Maresfield and the surrounding areas.

We are proud to be an RCVS Accredited Practice, which means that we meet certain standards and are regularly assessed to ensure we maintain the highest standards of veterinary care for peace of mind for animal owners.
