Being an independent business, the time has come for a succession plan to take place in the management and ownership of the Equine division of Priory Vets.
We are very excited to communicate that from 8am on Friday 22nd September, the Equine division of Priory Vets has become Surrey Hills Equine Veterinary Practice Ltd.
Surrey Hills Equine is a new company owned by Dr Corrado Montoneri, who most of you will know personally and as your routine vet.
Corrado has worked as senior equine vet at Priory for the last 4 years and will be carrying on the legacy of our Equine practice with Surrey Hills Equine. You can read more about Corrado’s bio and experience on the new Surrey Hills Equine website www.surreyhillsequine.com.
Our small animal veterinary services are unaffected by this change – they will remain the same as always.
Any ongoing equine clinical cases will now be under the care of Surrey Hills Equine, who will have all your horse’s clinical records and will provide you with care 24/7.
For any matters relating to services carried out prior to 8 am Friday 22nd September – including invoicing, payments, insurance claims etc – please contact Priory Vets in the normal way.
We wish Corrado all the best with carrying on the care of horses and ponies in Surrey.
Steve Carter & Amanda Wiltshire,
Directors, Priory Veterinary Surgeons Ltd
