We are a small animal practice in Ivybridge, first established in the 1960s. We are passionate about animals and our skilled team of veterinarians and vet nurses are dedicated to providing the highest quality care. We are open Monday to Saturday and provide 24-hour emergency care.
Steve qualified from Cambridge in 1989 and worked for two years in a mixed practice in Banbury, then for another ten years in Abingdon, before moving back to Devon in 2001. He joined David Gabriel in a mixed animal practice doing small animal and cattle work. A few years ago the practice decided to focus on small animal work. Steve and David sold the practice to CVS in 2013. Steve took on the role of Clinical Director for Filham Park and a couple of years ago also became Clinical Director of Woodlands Veterinary Group in Plymouth and Ivybridge. Clinically Steve mainly concentrates on surgery and especially orthopaedics as well as exotics.
Away from work Steve is a football coach and regularly participates in Taekwondo. Steve occasionally participates in local runs and has collected a number of Ivybridge 10k shirts in a range of fetching colours.
