Client choice

We try to arrange for you to see the Veterinary Surgeon of your choice.  However, this is not always possible due to holidays, duty rotas and continuing professional development course.

We hope you will be understanding.

If you and your Veterinary Surgeon decide that your pet needs to see a specialist, we can usually offer you a choice of specialists and referral centres to best suit your and your pet's needs. 


Should you have any questions, please get in touch with us.  We'll be happy to help.

News November 2018


Jill Snape


Jill was involved in a nasty car accident in October and is convalescing in Coventry Hospital.  We have received many good wishes for her speedy recovery and pass these on to her with our own good wishes.


Martin Foster


Martin decided in 2017 that he wanted to reduce to working a two day week as a prelude to leaving SVC after more than three decades.  As of August 2018 he has now left the practice to pursue his other interests of music-making, canoeing and music festival attendance!  We wish him very well for the future.


Alex Pounder


We are delighted to welcome Alex to SVC.  Alex qualified in 2017 and has been working in Devon.
