The surgeries are conveniently located across the City of Exeter in Heavitree, Alphington, St Thomas, and Whipton.  

Our four surgeries are Royal College accredited and fully equipped for all routine medical and surgical procedures. Our surgery at 101 Buddle Lane in St Thomas also serves as our specialist internal referral surgery, being staffed by highly experienced vets and supported by ‘consultant’ vets qualified in a speciality. This surgery is equipped with a comprehensive practice laboratory and the latest state of the art imaging, monitoring, diagnostic and surgical equipment. Intensive care and 24 hour monitoring of very sick animals is available when necessary.

We have very experienced vets in house with the support of our consultant specialists in Cardiology (Hearts), Ophthalmology (Eyes), Imaging (Ultrasound, X-ray and MRI) and Acupuncture and our own veterinary Physiotherapist/rehabilitation expert. We are therefore very well staffed and equipped to expertly deal 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 etc.

CityVets is a privately owned 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. We are also the first practice in Exeter to host our own very competitively priced online petshop superstore.
