Tamar Vets (formally Locke and Preston) was established in 1987 by Howard Locke and Richard Preston.  Since then the practice has striven to improve its facilities and levels of professional expertise year on year.   We are dedicated in keeping your pets healthy by giving advice on preventative health care, whilst also having excellent levels of knowledge and experience to allow us to provide the best possible treatment in the unfortunate event of any illness.
We offer surgeries six days a week to enable our patients to be seen as soon as possible. We run consultations by appointment in Bude, Bradworthy and Holsworthy.  Consultations by open surgery in Hartland. This means that all you need to do is come along during the surgery hours listed, and your pet can be seen. The branches are open at other times (see opening hours) for you to: – Collect prescriptions – Purchase pet foods – Pay your account – Weigh your pet – Pick up flea or worm treatment etc. Our team of receptionists are always happy to help.

We also offer a range of Nursing Clinics including:
• weight checks
• dental checks
• pre-purchase advice
puppy and kitten advice
• puppy parties (coming soon )
• six month juvenile checks
• tick removal
• sexing young pets
• post-operative checks
• clipping claws
• administering worming products
• grooming/dematts and bandaging/dressing changes.

In an emergency or when the surgery is closed please contact any of our branches and we will make arrangements for your pet to be seen by one of our veterinary team at the earliest opportunity.
