Silverton Vets Staff

Veterinary Surgeons

We have a team of four dedicated veterinary surgeons who cover our three surgeries around Torbay, with many years of veterinary experience between them. The team is led by our Veterinary Director Cath Meakin. Working alongside her is Richard Maloney, Bernadette Smyth and Ewelina Ciupek-Anandan.

All our vets attend CPD courses every year to ensure they are up to date with the latest developments in veterinary medicine and pet care in order that you and your pets can access the highest veterinary care.
