We are a small animal practice in Exeter, first established in 1976. We are passionate about animal care and our skilled team of veterinarians and vet nurses are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your animals. Because we love animals and strive to provide excellent continuity of care, we are open six days a week and have access to 24-hour emergency care.
Michelle has been a receptionist at Raddenstiles since January 2015. In 2017 she decided to take on some more responsibility within the practice and has now taken on the role of practice administrator.
Emma joined the Raddenstiles team in June 1996, when the practice was still at Raddenstile Lane. She lives in Exmouth with her husband, son, a Boxer and a Border Terrier. Emma also has three thoroughbreds (ex-racehorses) which she rides at Woodbury Common with her friends. She loves the countryside, swimming and cycling with her family. Emma enjoys her job, helping clients and their pets and is very proud of our practice, our facilities and the people she works with.
Sandra joined Raddenstiles as a receptionist in October 2008, and is based at the branch practice in Sidford and very occasionally at Exmouth. She was born in Sidmouth and attended the local schools so she has a wide knowledge of the area. She feels very lucky to have grown up around such lovely countryside and by the sea. Sandra has always loved animals as she grew up with ponies, rabbits, hamsters, a hen called Sally Henny-Penny and over the years 12 Boxer dogs. Her children have had everything from budgies to geckos and all the small furries.
Tracey has been at Raddenstiles since early 2017 as part of the friendly practice reception team. She enjoys meeting clients and their pets, from the excitement of a new puppy or kitten to the gentle approach to the aging pets; every day is different. Tracey was born in Exmouth; she grew up in a large family who kept dogs, cats, rabbits and even geese. She has lived here most of her life and attended the local schools. Tracey has two miniature schnauzers that with her husband take up a lot time. Living in a beautiful part of Devon she enjoys caravanning, walking the coastline, the common, and being close to Dartmoor. Tracey also enjoys varied travel from Asia to Iceland.
Teresa has been part of the reception team since 2013. She really enjoys her job and meeting clients old and new with their pets. Teresa especially likes seeing clients with their new family members; puppies and kittens. She enjoys walking in the countryside, swimming, socialising, travelling and most importantly, spending quality time with her family.
Julie has been a receptionist at Raddenstiles since 2012. She lives in Exmouth and enjoys the beach and the countryside. She also loves travelling and there are lots of places still on her to do list. Julie has three cats, although one aptly named Asbo lives in several other houses as well. She also has a tortoise.
Donna joined Raddenstiles as a receptionist in January 2018. She trained at Bicton College doing an EVQ level two and three in equestrian studies and a first diploma. Donna has a horse called Henry that she has owned for nearly two decades. She used to do a lot of competing, show jumping, cross country and showing with him, but now he is enjoying his retirement. Donna has rescued two cats, Paddy and Jacob, who are brothers from the Cats Protection. She also got a kitten for her son called Tilly and she goes everywhere with him - they are best friends! Donna looks forward to meeting all the customers and their pets and making new friends.
Bev started coming to the practice as a regular client due to her cat, Dipsy, who was involved in a road traffic accident. Dipsy has visited the practice every day since 2002 to have his bladder expressed, so has become part of the fixtures and fittings. Bev has been working here as the housekeeper since 2013. Her jobs include keeping the practice looking clean and tidy and looking into any repairs that need doing. When she is not at work she likes to keep fit with yoga, jogging and swimming. Her two cats, Dipsy and Diesel, also keep her busy. Bev took them both on as strays.
