Karen Coombs

Veterinary Surgeon

After working locally for many years, I joined the practice in 2011 and was made to feel very welcome by Robert and his family. Under his leadership, the practice has grown so much that I now work twice as many hours each week than I did initially. My great love is surgery particularly orthopaedics but I am also fascinated by cardiology.

I live with my husband, two sons, two dogs, one cat and two tortoises (all of whom are male!) in Buckland where I enjoy being an active part of the local community.

My sons are sporty so I spend a lot of my free time on touchlines and boundaries cheering with pride. Otherwise, I enjoy cooking, reading and walking long distances.
