Steve Brawley MSc BVMS MRCVS

Joint Venture Partner & Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from Glasgow University Veterinary School in 1982, having been brought up in one of the Scottish “new towns” on the outskirts of Glasgow.

Over the years I have worked in many areas of the Veterinary field, including University, charity work with the PDSA, the Armed Forces, industry and owning my own practices. I have been at Woking since May 2009, having intended staying only for a few weeks. It is such a great place to work with a fantastic team and such caring passionate pet owners (and some interesting patients) that I decided to make it a permanent move.
Despite a long and varied career, I have never lost my enthusiasm for the work, and enjoy nothing more than seeing owners reunited with a healthy pet after illness or surgery. I have an interest in surgery and anyone at the practice will tell you about my passion for knees.

Outside of work, my family (wife Jo, Abigail 6 and Oliver 4), house, garden and pets occupy most of my free time.

I love meeting new people and pets, so why not come along and meet us all, have a look around the surgery and see how we can help maintain the special bond between you and your pet.
