Dr Hayley Baker
MA VetMB MRCVS

Joint Venture Partner & Veterinary Surgeon

I am Joint Venture Partner of Vets4Pets Cambridge Barnwell Road and Cambridge Beehive. I grew up in Guildford, Surrey and qualified from Cambridge University in 2008.  I went on to work at a small animal practice in Reading. From there I moved to Cork in Ireland where I worked at a small animal hospital with a high case load of emergencies and traumas which is where my passion for emergency and critical care developed, with a particular interest in soft tissue surgery.I have taken over the laparoscopic surgeries in the practice and I am currently studying towards my Post-Graduate Certificate in Endoscopy and Endosurgery. This means in addition to our very popular Laparoscopic (Keyhole) spaying I am now able to offer a range of surgeries by keyhole including gastropexies, abdominal organ biopsies, intestinal foreign removal, bladder stone removals and more. Keyhole is the gold standard for most human surgeries so I am very excited to be able to offer this to our furry patients now. I moved back to Cambridge in 2012 when I started with Vets4Pets. 

After a brief break to have my daughter, Evie, I returned as Joint Venture Partner in 2015 for both our Practices. My free time is taken up looking after my two labradoodles Humphrey and Cass. I am so excited about getting to work with our fantastic team again and look forward to seeing all our lovely patients soon!
