Carl Regan

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Carl Regan bio

I graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2013 having completed my veterinary degree. I completed my first degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare. My main area of veterinary interest lies in exotic animal medicine, including reptiles, birds, rabbits and small mammals. I have undertaken exotics training courses and placements in Australia, Czech Republic and America. I also have a particular interest in surgery. I enjoy walking, travelling, going to the cinema and am currently learning jujitsu. I have three cats (Thomas, Jim and Cleo) a bearded dragon (Rocky) and a degu (Houdini), who lives up to his name.

From Longford in Ireland, I qualified at University College Dublin. Moving to England I opened the Companion Care Surgery in Ashford in 2007. My particular interest is internal medicine. I have a rescue cat from Gibraltar called Bambino who very much makes himself at home whenever he visits the surgery, and a naughty little schnauzer crossed border terrier named Raya who comes to work every day and keeps us all busy with her cheeky antics.

After studying the two year, full time Veterinary Nursing Diploma course at Canterbury College, I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2013. Since qualifying, I have been working in small animal practice and enjoy all aspects of veterinary nursing. I have keen interests in inpatient care, laboratory work and nursing exotics species. I have a cheeky three year old border terrier named Maisie and a six year old bearded dragon named Zeus.

It has always been a lifelong ambition to be able to work with animals, as previously I worked as an Assistant Manager of a Hotel. I have a two year old Alaskan malamute called Koda, who I enjoy taking for long walks in my spare time. I also enjoy socialising with family and friends, as well as going to the gym.

I have been involved with dogs and cats all my life and I'm passionate about animal welfare. My Grandmother was a breeder of cocker spaniels, and I used to breed, show and judge basset hounds, winning B.O.B at Crufts. I previously worked as a pet advocate, advising dog and cat owners on nutrition. I have two British bulldogs and three grandchildren, who take up most of my free time.

Before working for Vets4Pets I was employed as a combat human resources specialist in the Armed forces. I have obtained my emergency animal first aid certificate and I’m currently working towards a certificate as an Animal Nursing Assistant (ANA). I have a German shepherd called Sam and an ex racehorse called Tiz.

  • Emergency cover
    Even if we are closed, we have your pet covered.
  • Dental X-Ray
    Unlike humans, dogs need to be under general anesthesia for dental X-rays. Anesthesia is considered to be a safe procedure and will be performed after a general examination. It is tailored to the individual and your dog is continuously monitored during the dental exam.
  • Operating Theatre
    An operating theatre with gaseous anaesthetic facility for surgical procedures.
  • Digital X-Ray
    Digital X ray equipment is available.
