About Us

Individual care and commitment given to all our patients and clients at New Street Vets

Who are we?

We are a friendly, small animal veterinary practice situated in Honiton, Devon, having been established for over 30 years, serving both the local and surrounding towns, villages and farming community.

Unlike many larger vet practices, you can normally see the same vet each time you come to the surgery and ensure the continuity of care for your pet. We are also one of the few remaining practices who offer 15 minute consultations as standard to ensure we get a full understanding of your pet’s condition and you do not feel rushed or pressured during the consultation.


We have been accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Practice Standards, ensuring we meet the highest standards possible within veterinary care.

The RCVS Practice Standards Scheme (PSS) is a voluntary initiative to accredit veterinary practices in the UK. Through setting standards and carrying out regular inspections, the Scheme aims to promote and maintain the highest standards of veterinary care.

It offers peace of mind to clients of accredited practices and more informed choice to the animal-owning public.

To become accredited, practices volunteer for rigorous inspection every four years and will have met a range of minimum standards, including hygiene, 24-hour emergency cover, staff training, certain types of equipment and cost estimation procedures. They may also be subject to spot-checks between inspections. Read more about RCVS here.

Veterinary Nurse Training

New Street Vets is registered with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons as an approved centre for the training of Veterinary Nurses.

In order to qualify, nurses undergo a two-year period of vocational training which is assessed at work and through examination by the RCVS Awarding Body.

Qualified veterinary nurses may enter the RCVS List of Veterinary Nurses which is maintained by the VN Regulatory Body. On entering the List, they are entitled by law to undertake a range of veterinary treatments and procedures on animals under veterinary direction. Only Listed nurses are entitled to use the post-nominal letters ‘VN’. Qualified nurses are key members of the veterinary team, providing skilled care for sick animals and support for their owners.

Please be informed that we do not have any student nurse placements available for the time being.
