St Ives Veterinary Surgery is a small, friendly, companion animal practice in St Ives, Cornwall.

We offer quality health care to animals in St Ives, Carbis Bay, Hayle, Penzance and the rest of West Cornwall.

The surgery was opened in 1983 and taken over by Stephen Putnam in 1990. It has recently undergone major rebuilding and upgrading, enabling us to continue to provide the best standards of care to our patients and clients.

The purpose of this site is to provide information on the running of the practice and the services we provide as well as on various aspects of pet care and careers in Veterinary Surgery and Veterinary Nursing.

We have a Facebook page which we use for regular updates and announcements.

We have a Healthy Pet Club which gives you significant discounts. Click here for details.

To make an appointment, or for advice, telephone 01736 798333 at any time.


To slow the spread of covid-19 and save lives, we will not be running a full service for a while, but we will still be here if you need us.

We will be available on the phone at all times for any queries or worries you have, and if we need to see your pet or you need any drugs or food, we can meet you at the surgery.

We hope you understand the reason for this and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Please stay safe at home if you can.
