Welcome to our new vet Claire Hopkins!

This week we welcomed our new equine vet Claire to the team!

Claire qualified from the University of Edinburgh with a degree in veterinary medicine and surgery. Prior to this she graduated from the University of Bristol with a degree in physiological science. 

Since qualifying, Claire has worked in first opinion equine practice and completed a 12 month internship at Rainbow Equine Hospital in Yorkshire. Claire enjoys all aspects of equine work, with particular interests in medicine, anaesthesia and care of elderly horses.   

Outside of work, Claire enjoys eventing and playing polo. Aside from this, she also loves skiing and walking on Dartmoor. Claire spent a year in South Africa pursuing her other passion, the African bush veld, working as a field guide amongst the wildlife of the Greater Kruger National Park!    

Having grown up in South Devon, spending many weeks during her veterinary training at St David’s, Claire is familiar with the area and is delighted to finally be able to call Devon home again.
