Ian Griffiths BVM&S MRCVS
Practice Owner and Veterinary Surgeon
I am originally from Chester and qualified as a Veterinary Surgeon at the University of Edinburgh in 2010. Following graduation, my first job was at a small animal practice in Wolverhampton which gave me experience in all aspects of veterinary care and ultimately I became responsible for the majority of surgical cases. In addition, I worked with the local greyhound track providing the veterinary care and emergency treatment for the racing dogs and the local retired greyhound trust, which is something I have a passion for.
With the expansion of the Pets at Home the opportunity then arose to become a Joint Venture Partner at Vets4Pets in Solihull. Whilst awaiting the opening of our new Solihull branch I worked for several local Vet4Pets practices providing experienced locum cover.
The most rewarding aspects of being a vet is helping clients on a daily basis and building long term relationships with pets and their owners. I have a keen interest in surgery (particularly orthopaedics) and I am currently finalising further qualifications in surgery.
I live with my girlfriend Rachel and our thoroughly odd cat Chester in Birmingham. I am a keen hockey player and I continue to play for Wolverhampton and Tettenhall whenever possible.
