Partner and Veterinary Surgeon

I qualified from The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in Edinburgh in 2010 after receiving a BSc in Animal Sciences from Rutgers University in America in 2006. I joined the Thirsk team in 2013 and became a practice partner in August 2019. I am interested in consulting, preventative medicine, and the client and pet journey through the clinic in order to make it as stress free as possible. At home I have two young boys and three dogs, so whether at work or at home I am always busy.

Amanda Waibel

Partner and Veterinary Surgeon

I was born in Switzerland, but grew up in South Africa where I also pursued her childhood dream of qualifying as a vet. After qualifying I spent time doing community work (which has a special place in my heart) in rural South Africa providing veterinary services and education to communities that had never had this before. After moving to the UK, I joined Skeldale in 2019 but took a short break to pursue my interests in emergency and critical care as well as internal medicine. I returned to Skeldale in August 2021 to become a branch partner with Sarah and Medivet, and I am continuing to pursue these interests and is currently completing her Masters in these fields and using her new found knowledge in all aspects of Skeldale life. I also oversee the Skeldale night team which allows us to provide 24-hour care to our clients and their beloved pets in our hospital accredited practice 7 days a week, 365 days of the year.

I joined Medivet in 2020.I grew up on a farm in Kent so becoming a nurse was inevitable. I qualified as a nurse in 1993 and have had a varied career since qualifying. I moved to Yorkshire in 2017 then North Yorkshire in 2020. In my spare time I love hiking, especially in the Yorkshire Dales and Moors, Lake District, and Snowdonia.

We adopted a collie from Lucie's Animal Rescue and she had to go to Skeldale Medivet Thirsk for her second injections we were so impressed with the level of service we immediately changed our then vets to Medivet and have no regrets whatsoever. We now use the Ripon branch (closer to us) we have all our pets registered with them. Fabulous staff and service it's like taking our animals to friends for veterinary treatment.

Would like to thank the receptionist at Ripon and also works at Thirsk ( not sure of name) lovely friendly calm caring manner. To the vets at Thirsk thanks for you care and compassion recently on having to put my dog Yogi to sleep. You made a difficult emotional time, with your care and compassion easier to get through.
