Meet the Altrincham Vet team

Nathan Fordham

Nathan Fordham 

Veterinary Surgeon & Owner

I graduated from Liverpool University in 2005 and then spent a year in a mixed practice in Dolgellau, North Wales before heading south to Cardiff to work for the UK's biggest animals' charity, the PDSA. While there, as I am particularly interested in orthopaedics surgery, I further studied to get a general practitioner's certificate in surgery.

After meeting my wife, I moved up to Manchester and since then have worked in a number of practices around the North West.  I wanted a new challenge and now this is the opportunity for me to open my own practice at Vets4Pets Altrincham. 

In my spare time I enjoy travelling, as well as snowboarding and kitesurfing: my favourite spot is Tarifa, in the South of Spain. We don't have pets at the moment but, having just bought a house, it's just a question of time.

I qualified as a Vet in Spain and have recently moved over to the UK in October 2018 to come work for Vets4Pets. I have many exotic pets including chameleons who now live with my parents back in Spain. Im enjoying working within Vets4Pets but no so much the cold weather!
