Read Chris Foster bio

Chris graduated as a Veterinary Surgeon from the University of Bristol in 1999 and has been working as a Veterinary Surgeon in the Bury area since 2001, doing a combination of general practice medicine and surgery, in addition to many years of accident and emergency work at a local out of hours and emergency clinic. He joined the Bury Vets 4 Pets team in May 2017, and has recently become a partner at the practice. Chris enjoys the broad mix that first opinion small animal medicine and surgery provides, and divides his time at Vets 4 pets between operating and consulting. When he isn’t working, much of his free time is spent with his wife, and young son Jacob, who manages to keep mum and dad very busy! His Border Collie and 2 cats complete the household!

I joined the practice in February 2018. I have grown up with pets all my life from hamsters to German shepherd’s I love them all but I do have a soft spot ....German shepherds. I currently have Shadow who is 5 and I have been to a number of training classes with him and the hard work definitely pays off, he is my world. Best part about the job is working with the team and being able to help owners with their loved pets.
