Meet the Team

He is Official Veterinary Surgeon to the Shire Horse Society and a Veterinary Examiner for the Worshipful Company of Farriers as well as a member of their Executive Examination Group. His partner, Abi owns and runs a Saddlery and they have a son with a passion for sailing and a daughter who has shown ponies since an early age and now enjoys showjumping and is worryingly developing an interest in eventing.

Dr Joe Steventon BVSc MRCVS

Partner and Veterinary Surgeon at Woodbridge Surgery

Joe qualified from Liverpool in 1997. He started as a mixed practice vet on the Welsh borders, however his love for small animal work soon took over and after a brief stint teaching vet students at the RVC, he spent a few years running a practice in London. He then returned to his home town of Woodbridge and joined our practice in 2007. Joe is now our small animal partner and has a love for all aspects of small animal work. He has a keen interest in orthopaedic surgery and small animal medicine. Away from work he and his wife Kelly are kept busy by their two lively children, Harper & Noah, Cookie the cat, Tallulah Wilson the tortoise, a brood of chickens and tropical fish!
