Introducing Our Practice Team 

Our experienced team are committed to providing a caring and professional service.

We know that concerns about a beloved pet’s health can make visits to the vet stressful and onerous. The understanding staff at St George’s will strive to provide reassurance and comfort for both you and your pet at each visit.

Our aim is to constantly exceed our clients’ expectations. We are always happy to help in any way we can, including carrying your pet food or cat baskets out to your car.
We look forward to meeting you and your pets.

Please do not hesitate to phone the practice with any query regarding your pet’s health. We are happy to offer advice over the phone or to book an appointment at your convenience.

Dr Emily Thomson-Gamble
Dr Emily Thomson-Gamble
Veterinary Surgeon
MA, VetMB, GPcert(SAP), Dipl(CABT), MRCVS

Emily qualified as a veterinary surgeon in 2001 from Cambridge University, where she also obtained a first class degree in Zoology.

After a year in a rural mixed practice, Emily made the decision to specialise in small animal medicine and surgery. She has worked as the senior vet in two practices in Greater London and has practiced in Weybridge since 2007.

Emily opened St George’s Vet Centre in 2011, converting Holland House from offices into a well-served veterinary surgery and installing the latest digital X-ray and a fully equipped operating theatre. She is incredibly proud of her Independent practice, which she feels offers a personal, caring service amongst the increasingly corporate veterinary landscape.

Emily is interested in all aspects of veterinary medicine and surgery and has obtained several postgraduate qualifications. She aims to offer her clients a highly empathetic and compassionate service for their beloved animals.

Due to her working hours, Emily only has one pet at the moment, a rescued, one-eyed, ex-polo pony called "Zoom"! She and her husband are looking forward to owning a working Labrador when time permits.
