Dr Hayley Baker

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

MA VetMB GPCert (endo) MRCVS

Read Dr Hayley Baker bio

Hi Everyone!  I am Hayley the Practice Owner at Vets for Pets Bar Hill and Cambridge Beehive.  I qualified as a Veterinary Surgeon in 2008 from the University of Cambridge.  I then spent a few years in Ireland working in first opinion practice, gaining valuable experience in soft tissue surgery and emergency and critical care. I moved back to Cambridge in 2012 where I started working for Vets for Pets on Barnwell Road and took over as Practice Owner of both Vets for Pets Cambridge and Cambridge Beehive.  Since then, I have gained a post-graduate qualification in endoscopy and endosurgery, of which there are only a handful of us across the country and now champion minimally invasive procedures, not only in our practice but across the entire Vets for Pets Business.  For this reason, I was awarded a grant by Vets for Pets to include a state-of-the-art training facility in our new Bar Hill Practice, to help encourage uptake of, specifically, laparoscopic neutering.

At home I look after my two daughters Evie and Ysmay with my husband Rob, who is originally from Histon.  I also spend any free time I have running and you will regularly find me running around the village during lunch time!

Client Care Advisor

I started working at Vets4Pets in April 2023. Previously I had my own florist shop. Growing up in the countryside of the Peak District and within the farming community we were always surrounded by animals and they were part of life. I stumbled into a role within a veterinary practice and haven’t looked back. It was for me a natural progression after leaving the floristry business I turned to the other passion in my life; animals. Previously I had a floristry company and worked in events so I work well under pressure. I have a Cardigan Corgi and a Rhodesian Ridgeback so I love dog breeds big and small.
