We are open for essential care only
In line with government guidelines, we are only offering medically essential appointments, so please contact the practice team before travelling. Our opening hours may also vary, so please monitor our webpage to keep up to date with the latest information.
We are taking steps to help keep you and our colleagues safe:
- If you do need to visit, we ask that only one person per pet comes along, to help reduce the number of people in the waiting area at any one time.
- Social distancing is crucial at this time. When arriving, you may be required to call ahead and wait to be invited in by a member of our team. You will be informed if this is necessary when you call us to make your appointment.
- Once inside the practice, we ask that you please respect a two metre distance from our colleagues and other clients.
- We are only accepting card payments to help minimise contact between you and our colleagues.
- If you can’t visit the practice and are concerned about your pet’s health, please contact us to discuss available options.
We will continue to share regular updates here and on our Facebook page. We thank you for your patience at this time.
Meet the team
I qualified at Cordoba University (Spain). and moved to the UK in 2007 and have been working as a surgeon ever since, performing a great variety of soft tissue and orthopaedic surgeries in small animals. Since moving to the UK I have enjoyed many holidays in Cornwall and I decided this was the best place for me to settle and raise my young family. I hold an AVP certificate in surgery, my special interest is orthopaedic and minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery. My compassion for my patients is what drives me to deliver high standards of service and care to our patients whilst looking after their best interests.
Anges qualified as a Vet in 2016 in Olsztyn, Poland and started practising in Leicester before joining us in October 2016. Anges has a Dalmatian called Dara, German Shepard called Nero and two cats Mini and Max. She enjoys travelling, snowboarding and looking forward to learn to surf in Cornish waters.
Mel graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 1999. She went straight into companion animal general practice in Essex. She has worked in Devon and East Sussex but finally wanted to settle in Cornwall to be with her family. Mel joined the team in 2009. She enjoys all aspects of companion animal surgery and medicine, with a slight bias towards feline medicine (this was always inevitable as her first spoken word was “cat”). An interest in animal behaviour has followed her through from childhood and she spends a lot of her spare time learning about dog and cat behaviour, with the help of her own two whippets and four cats. They keep her busy finding new and exciting environmental enrichment and training games. Her whippets have also recently persuaded her to learn the art of canine massage.
The natural world has always been important to Mel, she can often be found on her days off wandering through the beautiful woods, beaches and coast of Cornwall with her dogs, stopping to listen to, or watch, a bird or wild mammal. She was lucky enough to get the opportunity to spend some time in Namibia volunteering with the Cheetah Conservation Fund and at a lion sanctuary in South Africa several years ago. If she ever has a faraway look in her eye it is likely she is thinking about the African Savannah.
Sarah qualified in 2004 and has since had jobs in mixed practice and also as a Government vet before focusing on companion animals. She enjoys all aspects of general practice and likes as much variety as possible. When not at work she is kept busy by her three children, ponies and goats!
Lynsey has been with the practice since we first opened the door in 2008! She has been the head nurse in this time and many of you will have met her with your pets.
Since the practice rebranded and has started to grow she has taken on a more managerial role and is now our practice manager. Never far away and will remain as an experienced nurse, on hand to help our team and clients as needed. She is also studying for a Certificate in Veterinary Business Management through Liverpool Vet School.
Lynsey now has a small family so spends her time out of work racing around doing mum duties and uni work. She also has a horse who she competes locally, and a little Boston Terrier called Ruby.
Lynsey is also on the committee for Cornwall and South Devon Boxer Rescue so likes to help on fundraising days
