Thank you for your interest in our practice.

Our patients are at the heart of every decision we make and due to a temporary reduction in our clinical team, we have taken the decision in the short term to implement a waiting list for new clients to join our practice. This decision doesn’t come lightly however is needed to ensure that we protect the integrity of our service and can continue to deliver the highest standard of veterinary care for our existing patients. We continue to ask for patience and understanding towards our team in practice. Visit our Facebook page to stay informed about any further changes at our practice.

Chris Willis

Practice Partner & Head Veterinary Surgeon

BVSc (Hons) MRCVS

Read Chris Willis bio

Chris qualified as a Vet in Sydney in 1998 and moved to the UK to in 2001 enhance his veterinary skills and has never looked back. Chris was hugely proud to open Kettering Vets4Pets in December 2009 in partnership with Sarah, and strongly believes that having both Vet and Veterinary Nurse Partners at the helm works well for our patients. Chris has a keen interest in small animal surgery with a particular slant towards orthopaedic work (take a look at our interesting cases on our website to find out a bit more about some of our work). Chris also has interest in dermatology (all things skin related) and rabbit medicine and surgery. As well as being very gadget minded Chris in his spare time enjoys DIY and he has an ambition to “go green” with alternative sources of energy supplies and have no utility bills to pay! Chris has a vast menagerie of pets although he wishes everyone to know that his foot is now firmly down and there will be no more added..... Until next time!
