Newton Abbot Veterinary Surgery

24 hour number: 01626 354260

The practice was established in 1904 by Captain Hearn of the Royal Veterinary Corps. He volunteered as a vet at the outbreak of the Boer War and spent the entire war in South Africa. At the outbreak of WW1 he once again volunteered as a vet.

The Kingsteignton in Newton Abbot Practice was originally based at 19 Gestridge Road, with small animals being seen ‘round the back’ and the bookkeeping being done in the dining room. In 1974 the present premises were bought and moved into as it was considered to have plenty of room.

As the Practice continued to grow an operating theatre with prep room, an office and reception were added in 1998 and was thought to be adequate. However, with continued expansion the practice was renovated in 2007 with two new operating theatres, digital x ray/ultrasound/endoscopy suite, a large prep room, and separate kennels, cattery and isolation units.  The existing front of house saw a larger reception and waiting area and two extra consulting rooms, with the new large and fully equipped laboratory and the offices moving upstairs.

We are extremely proud of the practice and have been trusted by our local community for caring for their pets for over 110 years.  If you would like to have a guided tour of the Kingsteignton practice, meet the team and view the facilities, then please contact us on 01626 354260 or pop in to arrange a tour.
