Veterinary Surgeon


Read Katie Lenton bio

After qualifying in 2001, Katie worked in mixed then small animal practice, quickly developing an interest in all aspects of small animal surgery.

She gained her Certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2007 and became a RCVS recognised Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Surgery. She has many years experience in first opinion and referral practice.

‘Advanced Practitioner’ is an official recognition of a veterinary surgeon's particular knowledge and skills. The list of Advanced Practitioners provides a clear indication of those veterinary surgeons who the RCVS have accredited at postgraduate certificate level (Masters level 7) who have demonstrated knowledge and experience in a particular area of veterinary practice beyond their initial primary veterinary degree, and who have also confirmed that they are up to date in their field over and above the minimum requirements for continuing professional development.

It is important to understand that Advanced Practitioners are not RCVS/European Specialists and there will be cases where referral to a tertiary referral centre is more appropriate.

Veterinary Surgeon

Read Inge Johannson bio

Inge grew up in Norway, but travelled to Glasgow University to study Vet medicine, and find her husband, she graduated from there in 1993.

The first few years in practice was spent doing mixed practice, and she enjoyed getting involved with the various farm animals, but after having her children she opted to work with small animals only. She enjoys most aspects of the vet job (but less so if it's very smelly, as it sometimes is!), and has special interest in soft tissue surgery.

At home she is busy with her own animals, a cat, two Labradors, chicken, and five horses, and on a quiet day you will find her tending to the garden.
