Our team are the key to the success of EVES - Without them the animals are not expertly treated and the facilities provided by the modern hospital are wasted. Plus who would cuddle and chat to the patients! When we are open they are always available for some helpful advice if you are worried about your pet's health.

Anna qualified as a veterinary nurse in 1999 and has worked in a variety of practices in the south west ever since. Her nursing career initially found her working in both mixed and equine practices but she has spent the past few years concentrating her skills on nursing small animals.
She's a local girl and has lived and worked in the county all of her life but that' not to say that she hasn't also done her fair share of travelling and Anna has visited China, New Zealand and Australia.
Robyn Vardey - Registered Veterinary Nurse
Originally from Yorkshire I moved to Cornwall 5 years ago to surf and ended up nursing. Before this I travelled around Europe and worked in a lot of surf shops.
I have 2 very energetic springer cross rescue dogs called Millie and Mylo, 2 young and naughty cats Klaus and Rodger and a bearded dragon called Figment. I have a keen interest in reptiles and plan to get more eventually.

I qualified as a Vet Nurse from Dorchester in 2000 and have worked mainly in small animal practice, wildlife rescue charities and emergency clinics since then.
I have rescued 14 animals, too many to name and I have to work to keep them all.
