Lucy Hepworth Vet

Lucy Hepworth

BVSc MRCVS

Lucy graduated from Bristol Vet School in 2004 and started her career in a mixed practice in mid Wales. She moved to Friars Moor to specialise in livestock health in 2007. Lucy really enjoys working with the diversity of farming enterprises in the Blackmore Vale. Her particular cattle interests are nutrition and fertility, together with young stock health and performance.

Throughout her career she has maintained a special interest in small ruminant health and production. Lucy enjoys running farmer training courses and is actively involved in the practice beef suckler and dairy young stock discussion groups as well as a recently formed commercial flock group.

In her spare time, she likes to be outside enjoying the elements, and is usually found either in her sea kayak, with her walking boots on, on a bike or sleeping in a tent!


We all love our pets and, for 18 years, Friars Moor Veterinary Practice in Sturminster Newton has been giving me the confidence that I was doing the very best I could for mine.
