Nathan Fordham

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Nathan Fordham bio

I graduated from Liverpool University in 2005 and then spent a year in a mixed practice in Dolgellau, North Wales before heading south to Cardiff to work for the UK's biggest animals' charity, the PDSA. While there, as I am particularly interested in orthopaedics surgery, I further studied to get a general practitioner's certificate in surgery. After meeting my wife, I moved up to Manchester and since then have worked in a number of practices around the North West. I wanted a new challenge and now this is the opportunity for me to open my own practice at Vets4Pets Altrincham. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, as well as snowboarding and kitesurfing: my favourite spot is Tarifa, in the South of Spain. We don't have pets at the moment but, having just bought a house, it's just a question of time.

Having graduated from Nottingham Vet School in 2017, I started working in a busy small animal hospital in Cheshire. I joined the Vets4Pets Altrincham team April 2022.

I have a special interest in surgery and studying for the BSAVA Certificate and Advanced Practitioner status in the area. Most important to me is getting to know my patients, and, hopefully making their visits as stress-free and enjoyable as possible.

In my spare time I am usually being bossed around by my guinea pigs Livia and Julia, or, being taken for a walk by my beagle Lola.

‘I have recently graduated from the Royal Veterinary College and joined Vets for Pets Altrincham after completing my final placement as a student. My passion is rescue pets and I especially love hearing about my patients rescue stories!

Having been brought up on a farm in Lincolnshire and a keen horse rider I've always had involvement in animal care. My career in retail brought me to Manchester in 1997 where I have settled ever since. Working for Selfridges for 16 years gave me the valuable experience I have in Client care, team wellbeing and operational efficiency. Outside of work I run regularly with my two dogs, a Doberman Rosie and Boxer George. Movies and food are also up there on my list for down time.
