Cardiology Referrals

Mr. Richard Gale MA VetMB CertVC MRCVS

Richard Gale returned to Tamar Vets (then Locke and Preston) in 2012. The practice then embarked on an extensive program of investment and training to improve on the already excellent level of Veterinary Healthcare offered to all our clients.

Richard first worked at Locke and Preston Veterinary Group straight from University in 1995. Having had a keen interest in cardiology since qualifying, Richard left to pursue this interest, studying for several years before gaining a Certificate in Cardiology in 2003. Richard then set up a successful second opinion referral service in Somerset before returning to Bude.

Following necessary improvements and additions to our diagnostic equipment, Tamar Vets was then able to offer a comprehensive Cardio-Respiratory service for Small Animals with suspected cardiac or respiratory disease.

Richard also offers a referral service to local Veterinary Practices for those difficult heart cases which benefit from Richard’s knowledge and years of experience. Richard is also a member of the Veterinary Cardiology Society.

The practice is well equipped with a comprehensive range of diagnostic facilities, including Doppler Echocardiography, Electrocardiography, Radiography, Endoscopy and Blood Pressure monitoring.
