“Thank you so much Richard for helping Cosmo.. Excellent Surgery and a kind understanding Vet

Cosmo, my Shih Tzu was in a traumatic state after insufficient care at another vets.
Thankfully Richard got straight to work at making Cosmo comfortable and addressing the problem.
A kind Vet who loves animals, knows his stuff and is NOT about racking up a bill by adding unnecessary products…Superb.”


“The team at Sidmouth Vet Practice are really friendly, helpful and caring of the animals. The consult prices are good & Richard is very good with the animals. They can quickly order in products you might need such as special food. Kate on reception is always so welcoming on the phone and in person and goes out of her way to help you out.

 There have been some great information evenings & a lovely open day. It is good to see the vets being active in the community, promoting good healthcare and supporting local animal rescues.

There’s plenty of parking right outside too!”

“Have had my puppy Bailey with Sidmouth Vets from the start, they are amazing, they have been brilliant. Bailey got an infection in his mouth and I got right on the phone and they saw him straight away. Very good prices, they are more about the care of pets than the cost of things. Recommended a friend who has now changed vets and had her dogs castration done here and they were amazing with him so totally 5 star”

With a sick dog on holiday I was delighted to find this Surgery in Sidmouth who offered an early appointment and a fast resolution at extremely reasonable prices. The surgery is amazing and Richard’s attention to detail was very reassuring. Just wish you were nearer my home!
