Laurie Hall

Veterinary Surgeon

MRCVS

Read Laurie Hall bio

Laurie qualified in South Africa in 1987 and spent the early part of his career in small animal practice in Cape Town.  In the early 1990's, he moved to the UK and eventually bought a practice in Leamington Spa, where he ultimately spent 20 years of his Veterinary career.

Apart from small animal independent practice, he has worked in the Veterinary Corporate world in both clinical and managerial roles, as well as extensively in animal welfare organisations. 

He enjoys all aspects of small animal practice but is especially passionate about cats.  He places huge emphasis on the owner/pet bond and the vet/client relationship.

Laurie started here at Vets4Pets Banbury in January 2022, ostensibly to do a short term locum stint, but due to the excellent support provided by the nursing and reception team, as well as the caring clientele, he has not been able to leave!

Daniel Gwynne

Veterinary Care Assistant/Client Care Advisor

Read Daniel Gwynne bio

I’m Daniel and I joined Banbury Vets4Pets as a VCA/CCA in 2021

Animals have always been a passion of mine. Since the day I could walk I have always wanted to work within a veterinary practice. After working in a pet shop for over three years and then in a local hospital for over a year, this dream finally became a reality. I’m aspiring to progress in the field and hopefully become  a veterinary nurse one day.

I’m usually referred to as a 'Cat Dad' as I own 3 cats at home: Lily, Ginge and Artemis (some could say the own me).

In my spare time I enjoy walking, binge watching crime documentaries, science fiction and gaming online with friends.

Dom has worked for Vets4Pets on and off for 3 years.  He started at Stratford upon Avon and now does some locum shifts here at Banbury.

He has previously worked on farms, and he has many dogs and small furries, so looking after animals is second nature to him!

Dom likes to ensure that all pets that come to us are given the best care possible and he enjoys engaging with the clients.
