Nathan Fordham

Mr Nathan Fordham

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Mr 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.
