Friday, 13 July 2018 - 3:54pm

ST Boniface Veterinary Clinic of Exeter Road, Crediton has supported local families and their pets for more than six decades.

St Boniface Vets has grown from a two-vet mixed practice to a 13-strong veterinary team; offering dedicated small animal, equine and large animal services.

Despite this expansion it remains a family-run business committed to providing the best in veterinary care.

Marie Kemmish, Small Animal Director, is very proud of her team who are all experienced vets with specific interests of their own.

Marie has developed the laparoscopic surgery service - keyhole surgery for neutering; one of the few vets in the South West to provide this technique.

Ben Dart, has a special interest in endoscopy (a small camera that can be used for internal investigations of lungs, stomach and intestines), in addition to stem cell and platelet rich plasma (PrP) for arthritis, Clare and Kate have a keen interest in internal medicine and Emma Waldram-Macabe has a passion for dogs and cats, and the more unusual pets; such as bearded dragons, snakes and tortoises!

Jane White heads up the physiotherapy and rehabilitation service offering hydrotherapy (in the underwater treadmill) and a range of complimentary therapies including:- acupuncture, manual and electrotherapies, therapeutic exercise and advice on nutrition, supplements, lifestyle and environmental modifications.

Since taking over the Wolfgar Practice at Cheriton Bishop, the vets are fortunate to have grown their Equine Team and facilities and now offer a full compliment of equine services from routine preventative medicine, vettings and lameness work ups to surgical procedures and hospitalisation.

And finally, they have a progressive Large Animal Team, headed up by Tony Kemmish, who has recently been voted "Dairy Vet of the Year".

The team boasts two diploma holders and other vets studying for advanced farm animal certificates. The vets work closely with clients; providing a bespoke production animal service as well as innovative, advanced breeding techniques. St Boniface Vets are one of only four practices in Great Britain practicing IVF in cattle.

St Boniface Vets say: "No matter what your concern, big or small, we are here for you 24/7."

Marie Kemmish explained: "This year we are exhibiting at the following agricultural shows; Mid Devon, Launceston & District, Okehampton, Chagford and Holsworthy & Stratton .

"We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.
