Jeremy Kneen B.Vet. Med MRCVS
Gisella Kneen B.Vet. Med MRCVS
Jeremy and Gisella met while studying Veterinary Science at the Royal Veterinary College in London and were married in the summer of their final year in 1981. After two years working in a mixed practice in Harlow in Essex they moved to Horley in Surrey to work in a Veterinary Hospital.
Jeremy's family had long associations with the South Hams and so in 1985 Jeremy, Gisella and baby Tom moved to Ivybridge to work with George Austin. The practice was based in a small shop in Ivybridge High Street and it soon became clear that new premises were needed to provide the up to date service that Jeremy and Gisella wanted to practice. After a few planning issues had been resolved, Woodlands Veterinary Centre was born.
Jeremy's father Robert Kneen and Terry Biddlecombe built the practice which was officially opened in 1988. Since then the practice has expanded rapidly and in 1999 the state of the art Woodlands Veterinary Hospital was opened in Plymouth, providing 24 hour care for sick and injured animals.
The practice ethos of providing the best first opinion veterinary practice possible to our clients has proved successful with six full time and three part-time vets now working between the two surgeries. The practice prides itself on its ability to provide top quality professional services within a caring and friendly environment.
