Daniel Gwynne

Student Veterinary Nurse

Read Daniel Gwynne bio

I’m Daniel and I joined Banbury Vets4Pets as a VCA/CCA in 2021

Animals have always been a passion of mine. Since the day I could walk I have always wanted to work within a veterinary practice. After working in a pet shop for over three years and then in a local hospital for over a year, this dream finally became a reality. I’m aspiring to progress in the field and hopefully become  a veterinary nurse one day.

I’m usually referred to as a 'Cat Dad' as I own 3 cats at home: Lily, Ginge and Artemis (some could say the own me).

In my spare time I enjoy walking, binge watching crime documentaries, science fiction and gaming online with friends.
