Exotic Pet Owners

Our Senior Vet, Marcus Langer, provided Veterinary cover for Paignton Zoo and the Living Coasts for 20 years until they opened their own bespoke Veterinary Centre.  During that time he developed a degree of skill and experience that few Vets in General Practice can match. Many Vets refer cases to Marcus and clients come from Cornwall and all parts of Devon. He also sees parrots of all sizes.

From May 2012 we began a Contract to supply Veterinary Services to the Animals in Distress Rescue Centre in Ipplepen. We operate where possible in a specially-designed veterinary Suite at the Centre, but further- and special- investigations and Hospitalisation of critical patients are carried out at our Torquay Centre. We are able to provide on-site care to the majority of AID inmates, thus ensuring minimal stress and maximum health and welfare. Continued care to these unwanted pets can then be given at our 3 Surgeries once they have been adopted by their new guardians. We are very pleased to be involved with such a professional and dedicated Charity
