Caring for your pets as if they were ours

Dr Jonathan Carr BVSc MRCVS

Jonathan is the longest serving veterinary surgeon in the practice, originally working with Frank Noble in Dawlish until he retired. Jonathan is the senior vet at the Teignmouth surgery, his role mainly being the day to day first opinion consulting at Teignmouth and general surgery. He has an interest in skin disease but prefers not to specialize, enjoying consulting as it enables him to meet clients on a regular basis. Jonathan in association with the senior staff at the other surgeries tries to keep a lid on the day to day paperwork issues and more strategic planning.
