I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2012. Joe and I decided to open our first Vets4Pets practice in Abingdon in 2016, having worked in multiple referral and first opinion veterinary hospitals across the UK prior to taking this big step. We later opened in Oxford and Newbury and are very proud of the teams we have working at each practice. I split my time between each of the three practices and have recently passed post graduate examinations with the British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA) in Small Animal Internal Medicine.

My clinical areas of interest are intensive care, acute medicine and soft tissue surgery, although I enjoy all aspects of veterinary practice. I am also developing a special interest in working dogs, and in 2020 volunteered as a trail veterinarian on the Iditarod Dog Sled race across Alaska! I believe in treating all of my patients as if they were my own animals and am extremely proud of the way the whole team here put our patients and clients first.

My wife Lucy is also a vet and one of the partners at Vets4Pets Oxford, and we live with two naughty dogs called Watson and Doug, and a rather superior three legged cat called Archie!

I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College and have a special interest in small animal orthopaedics and soft tissue surgery. Further to qualifying I have passed the British Small Animal Veterinary Association Surgical exams and was awarded a post graduate certificate in small animal surgery. This is an intensive three year course where Veterinary Surgeons are taught by Specialists to perform more advanced and technically demanding operations. We offer referral work for soft tissue and orthopaedics including TPLO/TTA/CCWO for cruciate surgery, fracture repair, key hole surgery and airway surgery (BOAS). In 2017 I was recognised by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons for our work in surgery and awarded Advanced Practitioner Status in orthopaedics and soft tissue surgery. I am presently studying for a second award in Advanced Small Animal Orthopaedics so as to offer our clients even more when it comes to their pet’s care.

Away from the operating table I really enjoy playing rugby. Dan and myself met on the rugby field fourteen years ago and I’m very excited to be owning a practice where I first began my veterinary career.

I also own a rescue cat called Cobweb who came to us from the RSCPA with a broken pelvis (now cured!) and a black Labrador Lyra who is always a welcoming face on reception at work.

I studied at the University of Nottingham where I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Veterinary Medicine and Science with Honours, before ultimately graduating with a First Class degree in Veterinary Medicine & Surgery in 2017. I have a keen interest in surgery and I am currently studying for a post graduate certificate in Small Animal Surgery with the British Small Animal Veterinary Association. Away from veterinary life I enjoy running and have loved the challenge of completing a few half marathons and Tough Mudder events. When I get the chance you will find me helping out at neuter clinics abroad for stray dogs and cats which I love. It was a shelter in Cyprus that I ended up bringing back my bonkers and very naughty beagle pointer cross, Lucky, who keeps me entertained and active on a daily basis!

I studied at the Royal Veterinary College and graduated with a Bachelors degree in Veterinary Medicine. I have a particular interest in medical cases and diagnostic imaging and I also love doing routine consults and getting to meet people's lovely pets. Outside of work my favourite things to do are to spend time with my family and when I get the chance I like to do some dance classes and indoor rock climbing.

I have been with the practice since February 2015 where I started my journey as a Veterinary Care Assistant. I trained and qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2019. I have studied different animal sectors such as Animal Management, Agriculture and Equine Studies. I feel very lucky to have the job role I have, helping animals and their owners.
I have a variety of companions - this includes a rescue staffy named Dee Dee and Mindy our fluffy cat who is the queen and rules the house. I also own an assortment of tortoises, hamsters and rabbits, without the many other creatures in between - most being rescues.

I joined Vets4Pets in January 2019 as the Practice Manager for Abingdon, Oxford Botley Road and Newbury London Road.

I have previously worked as a Veterinary Practice Manager, a GP Practice Manager and also spent 10 years as a Human Resources Manager with over 800 colleagues to look after!

I am passionate about animals and have a mad young Australian Labradoodle called Kiwi and a cute, adored Syrian hamster called Brianna.

I love the amazing team at Vets4Pets. They care so much about every single patient and client experience and they are also great fun to work with!

The best part of the day is having cuddles with our patients – this is the best job in the world!

I first joined the Veterinary industry as a Receptionist / Client Care Assistant back in 2014 and I have enjoyed every second! I have always had a strong interest in all types of animals and their welfare, so was very happy to be given the chance to work for the great team here at the Vets4Pets Abingdon and Oxford in October 2017 as a Veterinary Receptionist. In September 2020 I was given the amazing opportunity to begin my journey towards a Diploma in Professional Studies Veterinary Nursing at Hartpury University which has always been my dream! I previously studied for 3 years at Abingdon and Witney College achieving a Level 2 Diploma in Animal Care and a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Animal Management. Away from the desk I am a very outdoorsy person, enjoying exploring new things, places, countries and new foods. I have also volunteered at the Shamwari Game reserve in South Africa helping the community and the animals at the reserve. Apart from that my spare time is spent socialising with friends and family. I am a pet parent of 3 Rabbits, Gatsby, Pirate and Daisy and 2 dogs Charlie the German Shepherd X Akita and Gracie the Boston Terrier X Dachshund.

I started working at Vets4Pets Oxford in September 2015, and it's the perfect job for me. I have always loved animals since a very young age with many memories of trying to save animals and helping them to safety. My family home has always had a range of animals from dogs, fish, to royal pythons and bearded dragons. I love my job. 
Building a relationship with the animals as well as their owners is very important to me and my background in customer service as a Shop Floor Manager has helped with this. Although this is my first job in the veterinary industry, I definitely do not see ending. The job is incredibly rewarding and the team I work with are amazing. 
I have learnt a huge amount of information during my time here and aim to learn a lot more over the coming years. 
I currently own two dogs called Horace and Walter. Horace is a Basset Hound and has to be the most stubborn breed of dog I have ever encountered. Walter is a Terrier Cross and doesn't stop, he's got so much energy. It's safe to say our walks are very interesting.
