Charlie is a farmer’s son who grew up in a village outside Tiverton. Being around animals from a young age inspired him to pursue a veterinary career. On finishing his A levels at Exeter College, Charlie started vet school at Cambridge. While at university Charlie met his wife Janet. They married before he started his final year. While at university Charlie started to develop his interest in orthopaedics.
Upon qualifying in 2002 Charlie started his career working in a small animal practice in Hampshire. He moved back to Devon upon the birth of his first child. While in Devon he worked in mixed practice in Okehampton before taking up a position in Exeter working as a sole charge vet in a small animal practice.
Milestone Veterinary Centre realises Charlie’s ambition to own and run a veterinary surgery. Working together with Angela, Charlie is intending to develop Milestone Veterinary Centre into a caring, understanding practice that builds strong links with the local community as well as providing a high standard of veterinary care. Outside work Charlie spends time with his ever growing family.
Angela came over to the UK in 1999 from Zimbabwe where she had the wonderful privilege of growing up in the African bush as her parents were farmers. Her love of animals and desire to be a vet began from a very early age watching the vets work with her dad’s cattle and horses.
She received her veterinary degree from the University of Zimbabwe and graduated in 1998. She then came to the UK to further her studies and obtained membership to the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons 2000. Angela then took her first job in Southampton working for Beech House Veterinary Centre where she stayed for the next 7 years. As time passed Angela started to yearn for a more rural life and the beautiful country side of Devon beckoned. She first moved to Somerset and then onto Devon in 2009 where she feels she has truly settled. In her spare time Angela spends as much time as possible enjoying the wonderful Devon countryside usually accompanied by her little dog, Maisie. She also enjoys horse riding and playing tennis, and has two lovely cats for companionship.

“I have sadly lost my most precious dogs over the last year both of whom were treated with the greatest care. Charlie Withers answered my phone call on the first ring late in the evening and was waiting at the surgery when I arrived to put my to sleep and out of pain. His care and understanding helped me so much. Thank you so much ”
