Molecare Veterinary Services Ltd is a joint venture between Mole Valley Farmers and St David’s Farm Practice Ltd. The company became operational on 1st August 2014 and brought together the Farm, Equine and Small Animal Practice of Mole Valley Farmers with the Farm Practice of St David’s.
Originally set up in 1943, St David’s Farm Practice of Exeter has grown from a traditional mixed practice to a group of separate farm, equine and poultry vets. St David’s Farm Practice is a well-established farm practice with a loyal and supportive client base. The business has a strong reputation for customer service and high quality veterinary standards.
Mole Valley Farmers was established in 1960 by a small group of farmers concerned about discriminatory practices and large supplier margins on key agricultural inputs. The business has evolved over the years and now has over 8000 farmer shareholders and 30000 members serving the agricultural and rural community through 52 rural retailing stores, a 700,000 tonne animal feed business, fertiliser supply and other related products and services.
In recent years, Mole Valley Farmers introduced Molecare Animal Health & Veterinary Services, offering a more integrated holistic approach to serving its shareholders and members. This business currently operates 2 Farm and Equine practices at its South Molton and Frome retail stores along with a Small Animal practice at its Heathfield Store in Newton Abbot serving over 4000 clients.
Molecare Veterinary Services was established to combine the expertise and experience within both companies to help develop an innovative veterinary practice. We currently offer high quality first opinion work across the business.
However within the Farm team we also offer second opinion services – this is where we work closely with the various farm services available within Mole Valley Farmers and are able to provide support to these services when required. And we are able to call these services in to provide help on farm where we see a need.
Our aim at all times is to provide the highest quality animal care combined with excellent customer service.
