Welcome to CityVets Heavitree Branch – 24 Hour Animal Hospital

Our Animal Hospital in Heavitree is run by owner and veterinary surgeon Shaun Moore and CityVets partner, veterinary surgeon Ed Pattison, supported by experienced veterinary surgeons Eileen Alves and Caroline Arthur, alongside a team of experienced nursing and reception staff. We all have a reputation for being friendly, dedicated and passionate about the care of our client’s pets. We like to develop a close professional relationship with our clients, so that they know and trust us to provide the very best healthcare for their pets. In 2013  CityVets Heavitree branch moved from its old site to Rosary House, which has been totally refurbished to a very high standard as expected of a large, modern, fully equipped Veterinary Hospital. With staff on site 24 hours a day we can provide the best possible care for your pets. We provide all the routine and non routine services expected of a well established first opinion practice as well as advanced surgical procedures through Ed Pattison and specialist physiotherapy, Ophthalmology (Eyes), Imaging (X-rays, ultrasound and MRI), Exotics (Birds, reptiles and small furries) and Cardiology (Heart) Services. We are conveniently situated at the top of Heavitree on a major road into Exeter City centre, with parking in our private car park right in front of the surgery.

About our RCVS Veterinary Hospital Accreditation

To be accredited as a hospital – for either small animals or equine patients – a veterinary practice must meet core standards, plus those of the relevant General Practice. In addition it must, among other things:

  • Ensure nursing staff are present on the premises round the clock, and a veterinary surgeon available 24 hours a day to attend to in-patients, if required
  • Maintain and improve clinical standards by monitoring performance and the outcome of treatments
  • Provide a range of specialist equipment, such as specific diagnostic equipment (ECG and ultrasound)
  • Submit to rigorous examination of its premises and facilities, with emphasis on cleanliness and sterility
