Who are the Veterinary Surgeons
Patrick Tibbitts received his Bachelor in Veterinary Science from Massey University in New Zealand in 1985. After a brief time in Africa he came to England to work as a vet in 1988 and met his wife, Maureen in 1995. They lived and worked in this area for many years before deciding to set up the Veterinary Surgery in Coxheath.
Caroline Terburgh received her Bachelor in Veterinary Science from Pretoria University in South Africa in 2002. She started working with Patrick at Coxheath Veterinary Surgery in 2004.
Veterinary Surgery Development
Patrick Tibbitts established the Coxheath Veterinary Surgery in 2000 when he purchased a derelict residential bungalow and converted it into a fully equipped veterinary surgery. The official opening was in November 2000 where Patrick's mother Margaret came over from New Zealand to attend the opening and cut the ribbon.
After four years of building up the practice, he extended the surgery to double it's size. Within the original bungalow, the reception area was enlarged and improved and a second consulting room was created. In the purpose-built extension we added a new radiography room, a preparation room, the dispensary, the surgical theatre, an office and a new room for inpatient's hospitalisation.
