Ruth Tullie

Joint Venture Partner and Veterinary Surgeon


Read Ruth Tullie bio

After qualifying from Bristol Vet School in 1994, I spent over 5 years in a mixed practice in Suffolk dealing with small animals and horses. During this time I gained my certificate in Veterinary Radiology. I then moved to a small animal hospital practice in the New Forest where I developed my interests in imaging, internal medicine and dentistry before joining Companion Care in 2008 and opening the Southampton surgery.

I have 4 dogs called, Mopsy, Polly, Phoebe and Hazel, a horse called Alfie and one husband called David. When not working I like to relax by horse riding and walking in the New Forest.
