Welcome to our Cobham practice, located in Copse Road, close to the main High Street, just off the A307 Portsmouth Road and only a few minutes from the A3. Local clients often walk to the practice, there are two parking spaces on the practice driveway, ample parking along the road, and bus stops are just a short walk away.
Our Cobham practice is well-established in the area, having offered general, primary care services since the 1970s. In 2008, the practice was converted, with the addition of the latest operating theatres, diagnostic equipment and comfortable kennels.
Continuous investment is made to better support our highly experienced team, to enable us to offer world-class general, primary, consultation, diagnostic, surgical and advanced care services and the very best of care for you and your pets.
For more complex cases, surgeries, advanced care and 24hr emergency care, we may treat your pet in our near-by hospital in Surbiton. Complimentary transport is available, if needed.
Meet The Team
Senior Veterinary Surgeon
Since the age of 6, I have always wanted to be a vet and I don't think I even considered another career. I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2008 and after one year in mixed practice, I decided to live and work near where I grew up, in Surrey.
As a senior veterinary surgeon, I ensure quality standards across the team, and train and develop each member of the team, encouraging and supporting them to reach their highest potential.
I am also responsible for the more complicated cases and love seeing second opinions. With the advanced care services we offer it is so rewarding helping clients who want or need that extra level of care. I have interests in brachycephalic dogs (especially Bulldogs), dermatology and infectious diseases. We have a great team here and always do our best to create a lasting, personal touch.
I love animals and have a lovable Labrador called Dudley and a French Bulldog called Elfa. I also have a horse called Wi, who I spend time with eventing competitively.
David Tomkins BVetMed MRCVS
I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2020, joining Voo Vets as a six-month graduate; I am now on the pathway to becoming a senior vet.
As I am originally from Surrey and decided to stay close to home, I travel frequently and easily between the three Surrey practices: Ripley, Cobham and Pyrford, to carry out procedures and to provide support to the team.
In my free time I study Italian, which is partially funded by my CPD allowance. I have always loved and cared for animals, and now enjoy the company of two Horsefield tortoises, and a very adorable family Labrador, called Benji.

Manager of RehabilitationTeam- Physiotherapy and Hydrotherapy
I joined the Voo team in 2020 after completing my MSc in Animal behaviour at the University of Exeter.
From a young age I was interested in animal welfare and care and have always wanted to pursue a career in animal rehabilitation. Therefore, after completing my MSc I went on to get my Level 3 Certificate in Hydrotherapy for Small Animals at Greyfriars. I am eager to further my skills and knowledge and am interested in learning about how a combination of different therapies can benefit the rehabilitation process of our beloved four legged family members
