Matthew Plummer

Practice Owner and Veterinary Surgeon

BVSc MRCVS

Read Matthew Plummer bio

Matthew is our Practice Owner and Joint Venture Partner and opened Vet4Pets Trowbridge in 2015.

Originally coming from a strong farming and working-dog background, he quickly moved to full time small animal work at the beginning of his career and is now a vet of 21 years experience (having qualified from Bristol Vet School in 2003). Matthew has always lived locally (Mendips) and has spent the majority of his career to date serving pet owners in the wider Somerset and Wiltshire areas, including working as Clinical Director in a multitude of local practices such as Frome, Warminster, Trowbridge, Bradford-on-Avon and Bristol.

Matthew has always been interested in surgery and takes in house referrals from vet colleagues such as the trickier soft tissue cases and some orthopaedics.

When not operating, Matthew loves nothing better than the huge satisfaction of consulting with his loyal and regular clients, many of whom he has known for several years and across several different employments. Matthew takes pride in getting to know his clients really well, to thoroughly understand their concerns and get to the bottom of their pet’s needs (sometimes literally!).

Outside of work Matthew enjoys general rural and outdoor life, following Bath Rugby and having fun with his young family.

Matthew really hopes to see you at the clinic soon where you will be assured to receive a warm and personal welcome.

Read Mark Riggs bio

Mark is a straight forward sort of chap with a passion for caring for animals. He loves nothing better than a good old chin wag about all things pet!  He qualified from The Royal Veterinary College in 2001 and has a wealth of experience with small animal vetting. He prides himself on good clinical standards bundled with great customer service. For him, the two go hand in hand. Offering a friendly, dependable service for pet owners to rely upon is what gets him out of bed in the morning...well that and his young family! In his spare time he likes nothing better than spending time with his wife Vicky and two sons. He can often be found at the Rec supporting his beloved Bath Rugby or out in the country side walking to a tucked away pub for a bite to eat and a pint to drink, preferably with family, friends and dogs for company!

Welcome to Vets4Pets Trowbridge and thanks for looking us up! We are a modern and purpose built fully-fledged veterinary clinic with one sole purpose – to serve you and your pets. We might be inside a big retail store and work alongside one of the UK’s biggest and most familiar corporate veterinary brands, but we take pride in our individuality and local feel. Vets4Pets Trowbridge is locally-owned and run by Dr Matt and his team, which means you get to know us as much as we get to know your pets. Our position inside Pets at Home offers you ultimate convenience without compromise. Our team of experienced and compassionate vets, nurses, and receptionists are on-hand 7 days a week, with the most up to date training and equipment.

We offer all the routine clinical services you would naturally expect such as vaccines and neutering’s. Equally, we are also fully able to perform the more complex orthopaedic, dental, laparoscopic (‘key-hole’) and soft tissue operations, as well as advanced diagnostic imaging and a state of the art laboratory for rapid on-site investigations. We have everything covered to help keep your pets happy and healthy. What’s more, being part of a retail park provides you with ample free parking as well as opportunities to treat yourself and your pet with various department stores and coffee shops right on our doorstep. But don’t worry, if you or your pet ever need some quiet or privacy, just ask for directions to our private rear entrance when booking your appointment.

To learn more about each of our team member's special skills and interests, and about our practice’s facilities, take a look around our website and Facebook page, give us a call – or pop by and meet us!
