And, David's wife Margaret joins him as a veterinary nurse at the centre.
She said: "We want to make life easier for people, and be accessible to our clients.
"We are making small changes one at a time."
The centre was built in the 1950s and treated large animals.
It has remained a veterinary centre ever since, although it now handles a lot of smaller pets.
The husband and wife team, who have two children, have kept on all the staff at the centre.
Previous owner John Routledge is taking a break, but is due to start work again at the surgery in June on a part-time basis.
David said: "This is the beginning and we want to change the practise and computerise it."
Margaret added: "There is a great deal of charisma about the place, and we don't want to take that away.
