Intake Veterinary Services Limited

About Intake Vets

Nick Freeman and David Parkins are the senior vets with Nick being responsible for the equine side and David in charge of the farm and alpaca work. Jo Sutton and Suzie Clark are our able, assistant vets.

We work on a principle of 'one client - one vet'; we feel continuity of care is crucial to providing good quality veterinary care and we strive to provide that. We encourage clients to use the same vet as far as possible for all routine work.
