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.

Cameron received his Bachelor in Veterinary Science from Massey University in New Zealand in 1986. After travelling through Africa and Asia and a brief stint in Saudi Arabia, he settled in Streatham, London and ran his own practise for 20 years. He moved to Kent three years ago and has worked at Coxheath Veterinary Surgery since 2014. Cameron is keenly interested in Accupuncture. He has three dogs and numerous chickens. He enjoys gardening, travelling and skiing.

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.

I started working for the Coxheath Veterinary Surgery in November 2009 as a receptionist. Although new to this line of work, I am enjoying it very much. I have lived in the village for 24years and already know many of our clients and their pets.
