We are a group of small animal practices in North Devon, first established in 1996. We are passionate about animal care and our skilled team of veterinarians and vet nurses are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your animals. Because we love animals and strive to provide excellent continuity of care, we are open six days a week and have access to 24-hour emergency care.
Sarah has been with Argyll since Anne Willis took over in 1996. She was offered the choice to train as a veterinary nurse and jumped at the chance - she has now been qualified for over 10 years and is still very much enjoying the role. Since qualifying she has gained a distinction in the advanced award in feline friendly nursing and is very much the feline advocate in the practice, having three cats herself this comes in very handy with understanding her feline companions. She has also gained status as a clinical coach and is relishing the role of teaching the next generation of nurses. She has a keen interest in anaesthesia and loves interacting with owners and their pets during nurse consultations.
Zeah Comer RVN
Zeah has worked at Argyll Vets since 2009, originally as a receptionist at our Barnstaple branch. She had a passion to become part of the nursing team and in February 2018 she gained her registered veterinary nurse qualification. When she is not at work Zeah loves spending time with her family and taking her dog on long walks.
Alex Fogg RVN
Alex works mainly at our Ilfracombe branch and has been with us since 1997 when the Ilfracombe surgery first opened. She relaxes by walking her dog, Ollie, and spending time with her family and friends.
Yolanda Jones RVN
Yolanda qualified in 2005 and worked in various practices in Somerset, including as a staff nurse at Langford Vet School, where as well as day to day nursing, she helped student vets and nurses develop their practical skills and also worked with a wide variety of pets including parrots, birds of prey, snakes and lizards. Yolanda also ran the canine hydrotherapy unit for a short time, an experience she thoroughly enjoyed. She moved to North Devon in 2008 and joined Argyll in January 2013. Her particular areas of interest in practice are anaesthesia, exotics and dentistry. In her spare time Yolanda enjoys listening to music, cooking, making candles, being by the sea and looking after her weird and wonderful menagerie of pets; a bouncy black Labrador, two cockatiels, fish, African dwarf frogs and a rather grumpy rainbow crab called Doris!
Cerys Kingdon RVN
Cerys qualified as a registered veterinary nurse in 2004 when she worked at another veterinary practice in North Devon. She joined the Argyll team in 2006 and works mainly out of our Braunton surgery with keen interest in nurse clinics including weight control and behaviour. Cerys is married and a mother of twin girls and has a lovely rescue dog from Dogs Trust called Wilbur, who is a regular face at our Braunton clinic where she uses him to socialise and have playtime with nervous dog and puppies. In her spare time Cerys can be found surfing at the local beaches or leading a local Beaver Scout group.
Hannah Young RVN
Hannah started her career as a veterinary nurse in Leamington Spa where she qualified in 1998 and met Phill before moving to Gloucester where they got married. The call of the ocean brought them to Barnstaple where Hannah helped open the Roundswell surgery in early 2005. Hannah is lucky Phill is so patient as she loves to bring home waifs and strays! Currently she has two dogs and two cats but there is always room for more. Her mum lives nearby and is on hand to take care of the animals when they go to regular music festivals and winter holidays to the Canary Islands in search of the sun. Hannah has a passion for radiography and recently studied for a BSAVA merit award in diagnostic imaging. You will also find her assisting vet Kathrine with her orthopaedic operations, or in a nurse clinic cuddling a puppy or kitten.
Student Veterinary Nurse
Sofia started her veterinary nurse training in 2016, which she is thoroughly enjoying and hopes to qualify soon. She has lived in North Devon her whole life and in her spare time loves to go for long walks in the countryside with her dog.
Patient Care Assistant
