Torch Equine Vets team

The merger of the equine departments of Torbridge Veterinary Hospital Group  and Charter Veterinary Hospital Group in July 2012 enabled further specialisation of our equine vets and services.

Both practices have a long proud tradition, totalling over 150 years,  of providing veterinary care  for horses in north devon. We are very fortunate to have many excellent  and  supportive clients engaged in activities ranging from international competition to pleasure riding.

We have a team of equine vets who take great pride in their work and as a result have undertaken extensive further equine qualifications and gained certificates in;

  • Equine Soft Tissue Surgery
  • Equine Orthopaedics
  • Anaesthesia
