Our dedicated equine vets are based across the region, making it easy for us to cover large parts of Devon, Somerset and Cornwall. Much of our equipment is mobile but should circumstances dictate that further investigative work or surgery is necessary, our equine veterinary practice at Mullacott, Ilfracombe is staffed around the clock for 24 hour emergencies and resident care. Equine in-patients are never left unattended overnight.

Our fully equipped equine operating theatre and recovery box allows us to complete a range of surgical procedures.  We have vets with post graduate qualifications in surgery with years of experience supported by a dedicated nursing team.

Our services include:


Preventative care

Preventative healthcare including vaccinations, deworming and annual checks to keep your horse healthy and happy.


Equine Dentistry

An essential and important part of your horse's health, Torch Equine Vets provides a complete dental service.


Pre-purchase examinations

Identify potential issues before you buy a horse with a pre-purchase vetting examination by our experienced Equine vets.


Stud services

As a practice, we are passionate about providing first-class, cost-effective stud services to clients across the south west.



Not every diagnosis can be made on physical examination alone so if your horse is underperforming or ill, we can find out why.


Equine Supplements

We are proud to offer our own range of equine supplements to help keep your horse in peak condition

It is our aim to work as part of your team of advisors to ensure good quality healthcare that is value for money.

Independent vets, dedicated care

The provision of excellent customer service lies at the heart of what we do. Thanks to our convenient locations we cover large parts of the south-west. Our reach is wide but our focus remains on the provision of a personal service, offering outstanding veterinary care, to our highly valued clients.
