Bovey Tracey Branch

Originally opened as a branch surgery in the town centre, this surgery has grown considerably over the years and in 1995 we opened larger premises on the edge of town. This is now the main branch of the practice with all small animal operations being performed here, as well as small animal hospitalisation facilities. At this surgery we have our Practice Manager Heather Gibbs, plus our team of qualified veterinary nurses, animal nursing assistants and receptionists.

Moretonhampstead Branch

The practice itself dates back to the 20th century. Bob Pigott took the Moretonhampstead practice on in 1960. Ulli Arnold became his partner in 1987 and became sole owner in 1995 following Bob’s retirement. In December 2016 a new partnership was formed between Ulli and Ashley Rubens. The Moretonhampstead branch is open all day and is looked after by our branch manager, Debbie Hill, plus our receptionists and animal nursing assistants. This is the centre for our large animal work and farmers often use this branch for collecting drugs, etc., throughout the day.

Christow Branch

This branch opened its doors in 1987 and is our smallest surgery where we only carry out routine appointments, e.g. boosters, during consulting hours, as it is normally manned by the vet alone.
