About us

Our dedicated team of magnificent veterinary surgeons are committed to a team approach for your pet’s healthcare needs.

Our vision and mission statements reflect how committed we are to you and your pets.

Our vision is to be recognised for providing world class healthcare for animals under our care and an exceptional customer experience that is second to none.

Our mission is to exist to provide and promote the highest standards of modern healthcare to the pets of Exmouth and East Devon. We believe in early primary diagnosis to determine the best course of action for individual pets in disease, injury or preventative healthcare. We are constantly investing in equipment, facilities, knowledge and skills to deliver exceptional healthcare. We work together as a team to provide a compassionate, caring and professional service tailored to each individuals needs. Client communication and building relationships based on trust is at the heart of our core values. We welcome feedback from clients and staff so that we can continually improve and develop our practice.

You may see only one of us but all will be involved according to your pets need. Over the past six years clinical director Chris Ridge has worked to recruit the very best veterinary staff to serve you along with Kirsty Hensby head nurse and practice manager. The majority of us have undertaken demanding courses of study and practical training beyond the already extensive basic veterinary training.

Adopting a several heads approach means we confer on cases on a daily basis pooling our expertise to offer more. We can provide all that you would expect from a premier practice: complex surgery, digital X-rays and detailed in depth medical investigation with treatments ranging from chemotherapy to a simple nail clip.

Our team of outstanding veterinary nurses will do whatever it takes to ensure your pet is restored to good health after treatment. They remain on site 24-hours a day to care for hospitalised patients. We have surgeries every day of the week and out of hours use a service with a specific emergency team at Exonia Veterinary Emergency Service.
