On site Dermatologist

Simon Tai is the only veterinary surgeon in Cornwall with qualified expertise in skin diseases. Despite the fact that the skin is the only organ you can visualise, touch and smell, dermatological problems are difficult to diagnose and manage.


Our nurses and receptionists are superb

nurses If your pet has to stay with us you can be sure that individual care and attention will be given to your pet by a specifically allocated nurse. Cuddles, fuss and attention when recovering from an anaesthetic or when your animal is hospitalised make all the difference to your pet. When you come for a consultation our receptionist will always do their best to put you at ease whilst waiting to see the Vet.

Our safety record is second to none

We use only the safest anaesthetics and best pain relief available. We also have state-of-the-art anaesthetic monitoring equipment, rarely available in other practices.

We own pets ourselves…
