We are an exclusively small animal Veterinary Practice with four independent surgeries run by their own teams of experienced Vets, qualified veterinary nurses, trainees and support staff. The surgeries are conveniently located across the City of Exeter in Heavitree, Alphington, St Thomas, and Whipton.
Our four surgeries are Royal College accredited. Heavitree, St Thomas and Alphington are fully equipped for all routine medical and surgical procedures.
Our surgeries at Heavitree and St Thomas also serve as our specialist internal referral surgery, being staffed by highly experienced vets and supported by ‘consultant’ vets qualified in a speciality.
These surgeries are equipped with comprehensive practice laboratories and the latest state of the art imaging, monitoring, diagnostic and surgical equipment. Intensive care and 24 hour monitoring of very sick animals is available at our Heavitree hospital.
We have very experienced vets in house with the support of our consultant specialists in Cardiology (Hearts), Opthalmology (Eyes). We also have veterinary experts in Imaging (Ultrasound and X-ray), behaviour and our own veterinary Physiotherapist / rehabilitation expert. We are therefore very well staffed and equipped to expertly deal the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of the more complex medical and surgical cases and emergencies, as well as the routine cuts, sore ears, itchy skins etc.
