Animal Heath Care

We are an exclusively small animal Veterinary Practice with four independent surgeries run by their own teams of experienced vets, qualified veterinary nurses, student veterinary nurses and support staff. The surgeries are conveniently located across the City of Exeter in Heavitree, St Thomas, Alphington and Whipton providing healthcare for Exeter’s pets.

Our four surgeries are accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Practice Standard Scheme and are fully equipped for all routine medical and surgical procedures. Our surgeries in Heavitree, St Thomas and Alphington are also equipped with a comprehensive practice laboratory and we have the latest state of the art imaging, monitoring, diagnostic and surgical equipment, all allowing us to offer the best service to you, our clients, and your pets.

We have very experienced, caring and compassionate vets in house, working with the support of our consultant specialists in Cardiology (Hearts), Ophthalmology (Eyes), Imaging (Ultrasound, X-ray and MRI) and our own veterinary physiotherapist and rehabilitation expert. We are therefore very well staffed and equipped to expertly deal with the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of the more complex medical and surgical disorders and emergencies, as well as the routine cuts, sore ears, itchy skins and preventative healthcare.


CityVets is a privately owned family run practice, so we retain a personal touch and aim to foster a lifelong, close, friendly, professional relationship with discerning clients who appreciate a top class service that represents true value for money. We are not target driven or constrained or dictated to by large corporate management or too small to be able to justify the expense of the best up to date specialist equipment and the employment of consultant specialists.
