Luke Knowles

Luke Knowles

Practice Owner & Head Veterinary Surgeon


Read Luke Knowles bio

I qualified from the University of Bristol in 2003 with a degree in Veterinary Medicine and a degree in Zoology. I have worked in a variety of large and small animal practices across Leicestershire since qualifying and worked with cats, dogs, rabbits, cows, horses, sheep, pigs, alpacas, guinea pigs, chinchillas, marmosets and lots of other creatures. I started Loughborough Vets4Pets in 2013 and have greatly enjoyed working with the pets and people of Loughborough. I enjoy being a general practitioner and dealing with all sorts of pets and their different ailments but I do have a lot of interest in treating skin and ear problems. I am also currently studying for further qualifications in soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery in order to offer more solutions for our patients without the need for referral.
