Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon
BVetMed PGCert (Small Animal Surgery) MRCVS GPAdvCertSAOS (Advanced Orthopaedic Surgery)
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.
Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon
BSc (Hons) BVetMed (Hons) MRCVS
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!
BSc (Hons) BVetMed MRCVS
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 but 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 became a registered veterinary nurse in 2019 and have been with the practice on and off since 2017. As a student doing my placements for university, I loved the team and the clients and patients so much that I never left. In my job I love to look after my patients as if they are my own. I'm always happy to give them a cuddle. I have keen interests in exotics, anaesthesia and diagnostic imaging. Outside work I have an interest in baking, gardening and keeping active. At home I have Rosie my crazy springer spaniel and Dusty my very vocal siamese.
Registered Veterinary Nurse
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 joined the Vets4Pets team at Abingdon as a receptionist/client care assistant in August 2018 after previously working in Pets at Home for 8 years. From a young age I have always wanted to work with animals and dreamed of working in a vet practice. The team here are all so much fun to work with, it’s such a lovely job and so nice to meet all our clients, their pets, and have lots of puppy cuddles!
Away from work I enjoy being creative, painting/drawing, socialising with my friends and family and receiving ASOS parcels (slight shopping addiction). I also have a 3 year old golden retriever called Noah who loves to go on long walks, eat everything he shouldn’t and we’re currently excitedly counting down the days for his little sister dalmatian to join us in a few weeks time.
Vets4Pets Abingdon is committed to bringing you affordable, high quality care via a modern, well equipped practice, including a laboratory, pharmacy, digital x-ray and ultrasound. We are also able to provide plenty of on-site car parking too!
We very much look forward to welcoming you to the practice!
