Recent Cases

There have been a spate of recent cases of gastro-enteritis in the summer

of 2015.  No pathogens have been identified specifically in these cases, but many have needed hospitalisation and intravenous fluids.  Fortunately, all have gone on to make a full recovery!



We would like to remind dog owners of the dangers of letting their pets drink from standing or still water in late summer.  Algal poisoning is not common but very serious!


We remain on the alert for cases of Alabama Rot, (also known as New Forest Disease or Sandringham Disease).  Fortunately very rare, but we have seen one case in the last 12 months.

News August 2018


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. 



Alabama Rot


Please don't panic about this!  Social media has gone a bit wild about it.  If you have genuine concerns and would like reassurance, do contact the surgery!
