Cardiology Referrals:

Dr Mark Patteson (MA, VetMB, PHD, DVC, Cert VR. MRCVS) is a RCVS specialist in veterinary cardiology.
He comes to our practice every 3 weeks  to see Cardiology and Imaging cases referred from practices in Cornwall and South Devon.

As the medical management of all forms of heart disease improves and expands, Mark is often able to extend good quality life periods for his cardiac patients.

His imaging and diagnostics skills with ultrasonography, echocardiography and halter monitoring particularly help him to give clients the clearest possible information on their pet.

Appointments with Mark can be made in exactly the same way as those with Colin – by fax, e-mail or phone.

Colin helped my yellow lab Holly as she had loose cartilage in her knee and lots of arthritis!
A very compassionate vet and good to report Holly is doing well x Thanks Colin

So deserved getting your RCVS Recognised Advanced Practitioner Certificate Colin.
Don’t know where we would have been with Jago if you hadn’t put his leg back together.

Wendy and Jago

Colin has been great and Bryn and I had very good care from all the staff.
Bryn is recovering well from his two broken legs and looking forward to getting out for walks again!
