Welcome to our Ripley practice, located on the High Street, opposite The Surrey Car Company and adjacent to The Half Moon Pub. Local clients often walk to the practice, parking is available in the public car park by The Green, and bus stops are just a short walk away.
Ripley is one of our more recent practice locations, opened in 2012. There are a lot of local memories attached to this practice, previously a saddlery and a jewellers. Much care was given to sympathetically restore, renovate and convert this little gem of local history, to try to respect and retain as many original features as possible. We hope our practice still reflects the character of this lovely village, in the heart of Surrey.
Our Ripley practice offers consulting and minor procedure services. As you help us to grow our Ripley practice, our plan is to further invest in developing additional on-site services and facilities. However, in the meantime, surgeries and diagnostic procedures are performed by the same team, at our Cobham practice, which has 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, 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, to Cobham and/or Surbiton.

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.
