Just like in humans, the tips of the teeth only tell half the story the rest of the picture lies underneath the gums.  Only after radiology can we really tell what is happening.

We love all creatures great and small.  All small animals are welcomed and treated with expert care, feathered or furred.  We also have access to many specialists for review with our complex cases.



All wildlife can be brought to the clinic completely free of charge.  We regularly treat and assess wildlife before sending them onto careers to ensure the best outcome for their successful release back to he wild.


Puppy Pre-School

Torquay Puppy Pre-School offers a 4 week course in obedience and socialisation.  Our trainer teaches owners how to successfully integrate their puppy into the family, as well as positive socialisation with other puppies. As well as positive socialisation with other puppies in a safe, controlled environment.

The puppy school has been operating successfully since 1994 with many of our clients returning with subsequent puppies.  All training is based on current positive reinforcement methods which are easy for the owner to grasp and fun for both the owner and the dog, results are seen very quickly.

All puppies must be vaccinated prior to attending.

Lynne White (our trainer) also offers a dog training service with in home consultations, which many clients access to further their training after completing puppy school or for particular problems.

Please remember to desex your cats before the age of 6 months to limit our numbers of unwanted kittens
