Welcome to Ridge Referrals

Welcome to Ridge Referrals

Ridge Referrals is an independent small animal orthopaedic referral service situated in a beautiful rural setting near Ashcombe, South Devon.

Patrick and Tanzi Ridge head up this small family business supported by a team of highly trained, dedicated staff who are committed to providing the best possible care for the much loved pets that are entrusted to us by the referring veterinary surgery.

We all have pets of our own and fully understand the joy, fun and companionship that pet ownership brings but alongside this we also appreciate how distressing it can be when your pet has an injury or illness. Our aim is to guide you through the referral process with ease, honesty and transparency.

We accept veterinary referrals (cases sent from other vets) in all aspects of orthopaedics in cats and dogs including fractures, joint disease and medical orthopaedics such as certain causes of arthritis and muscle diseases. We have a particular expertise in arthroscopic (keyhole) joint surgery and this technique is frequently used in our treatment protocols.
