Welcome to our Ripley practice, located on the High Street, opposite The Surrey Car Company and adjacent to The Half Moon Pub. Local clients often walk to the practice, parking is available in the public car park by The Green, and bus stops are just a short walk away.
Ripley is one of our more recent practice locations, opened in 2012. There are a lot of local memories attached to this practice, previously a saddlery and a jewellers. Much care was given to sympathetically restore, renovate and convert this little gem of local history, to try to respect and retain as many original features as possible. We hope our practice still reflects the character of this lovely village, in the heart of Surrey.
Our Ripley practice offers consulting and minor procedure services. As you help us to grow our Ripley practice, our plan is to further invest in developing additional on-site services and facilities. However, in the meantime, surgeries and diagnostic procedures are performed by the same team, at our Cobham practice, which has the latest operating theatres, diagnostic equipment and comfortable kennels.
Continuous investment is made to better support our highly experienced team, to enable us to offer world-class general, primary, consultation, diagnostic, surgical, specialist services and the very best of care for you and your pets. For more complex cases, surgeries, specialist and 24hr emergency care, we may treat your pet in our near-by hospital in Surbiton. Complimentary transport is available, if needed, to Cobham and/or Surbiton.

Meet The Team
Senior Veterinary Surgeon
Since the age of 6, I have always wanted to be a vet and I don't think I even considered another career. I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2008 and after one year in mixed practice, I decided to live and work near where I grew up, in Surrey.
As a senior veterinary surgeon, I ensure quality standards across the team, and train and develop each member of the team, encouraging and supporting them to reach their highest potential.
I am also responsible for the more complicated cases and love seeing second opinions. With the specialist services we offer it is so rewarding helping clients who want or need that extra level of care. I have specialist interests in brachycephalic dogs (especially Bulldogs), dermatology and infectious diseases. We have a great team here and always do our best to create a lasting, personal touch.
I love animals and have a lovable Labrador called Dudley and a French Bulldog called Elfa. I also have a horse called Wi, who I spend time with eventing competitively.
Associate Veterinary Surgeon
I graduated as a vet from Cambridge University and I intercalated in Natural Sciences to gain my Masters Degree. As part of the team here at Voo, I enjoy forming relationships with our clients and their pets and seeing healthier pets and contented owners as a result of our work.
We practice veterinary medicine to the highest standard of care and always follow best approaches when it comes to our cases. I took a special interest in Ophthalmology at University and am hoping to further pursue this specialism at Voo.
I have grown up with dogs and currently have a lovely Flat Coat Retriever.
Associate Veterinary Surgeon
After studying veterinary medicine at Bristol University, I worked as a small animal and equine vet in South Wales before moving back to be nearer my family in Surrey. I have really enjoyed becoming part of the Voo team because there is such a strong team spirit and wealth of knowledge.
I really enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine, however the two areas I find the most interesting are surgery and cardiology. By having our own specialists, we provide the best possible care for all our patients. Our amazing reception and nursing teams are always on hand to provide support and to answer any questions our clients may have.
Outside of work I enjoy playing hockey and tennis. I also love photography, particularly of animals and wildlife.
Customer Care Receptionist
Animals have always been a huge part of my life, particularly dogs. I was once owned by a golden retriever called Harry until quite recently, so coming into work fills an enormous gap.
I can see that the treat jar will need constantly filling!! We love to take care of every patient that comes through our door and I hope that I can put both pets and their owners at ease.
When I'm not at Voo, I volunteer for the RDA at Cranleigh and I love to sing with the Rock Choir. In my younger days, I managed show jumping yards in Germany and travelled extensively, volunteering around the world!
I have two wonderful sons and although I no longer have a dog in my life, I think we should watch this space....
Customer Care Receptionist
I'm a part-time receptionist at the Voo Ripley Practice and especially enjoy chatting to clients and getting to know them and their pets.
I worked in sales, both retail and advertising, before having my children. After a few years being at home, I became a Teaching Assistant in a local school, which I really enjoyed for 14 years. I don't agree with the saying "You shouldn't work with animals or children", in my experience there is nothing more rewarding!
I grew up with cats and dogs and now I have a Boxer dog called Cooper, who is amazing! He recently had surgery here and everyone involved has made such an effort to ensure the best outcome for him. Everyone knew him and cared so much - a really personal touch!
Hayley Dent Registered Veterinary Nurse
Senior Veterinary Nurse
I joined the Voo team in 2012, after completing a BTEC and then my nursing diploma.
I love working with a team who always goes the extra mile to provide excellent treatment, to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients. As a senior qualified nurse, I am also responsible for quality assurance, training and development of the nursing team, to the highest of standards.
I enjoy all aspects of general nursing but am especially passionate about hospital care and emergency stabilisation. Veterinary nursing is something I have always wanted to do and I love spending time and creating bonds with the pets we care for.
