New vet

We are having a new vet join us as of the 22nd November.

Catherine Jones is a very experienced vet who has been working for the past 20 years at the PDSA and other local practices.  She is very keen on soft tissue and bone surgery especially complicated fracture management and so this will improve our local services to our clients.  Chris and Catherine have operated together on many complicated cases over the years (spinal fractures, shunt surgery, complicated fractures etc) and we are excited to have her here to improve our surgical ability.

Catherine was brought up in the area and like Chris has stayed put, they like nothing more than being on the moor in their spare time with their children and dogs.  Catherine is also a keen member of Dartmoor search and rescue as well as the search and rescue dogs association (SARDA) in which she has trained 3 search dogs.
