Samantha Sauer MRCVS

Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

I qualified from Liverpool University in 2003 and after working in a mixed practice in Bedford moved back home where for the past 3 years I have been working as a locum vet around the North East. This has helped provide a wide area of experience and has taught me what makes a good practice. I have a holistic approach to veterinary medicine and am studying for further qualifications in both herbal medicine and acupuncture, both of which I use alongside conventional treatments. Out of work I am a keen outdoor enthusiast and enjoy travelling when possible. My aim for Kingston Park and Gateshead is to have a friendly, welcoming atmosphere where you can make an informed choice about your pet’s care.

Mark is the Practice Manager at both Gateshead and Kingston Park. Mark came on board full time when the decision was made to open Gateshead to help Samantha run the rapidly growing business. Gateshead has become the sister practice to Kingston Park which opened its doors December-2012. A practice that is owned as with Gateshead by Samantha Sauer, Marks other half. Both Gateshead and Kingston Park are truly a family run business. Marks aim as Practice Manager is to continue at Gateshead what has made and is continuing to make Kingston Park so popular with its clients. To create a place that provides a friendly, welcoming atmosphere where clients can make an informed choice about their pets’ care Outside of work Mark is a keen outdoor enthusiast. He is hoping once their daughter is old enough she too will follow their passion of climbing and hiking.
