Practice Manager

I spend most of my time managing the practice and the wonderful team. Keeping everything running smoothly is more than a full time job. Most of my time is spent behind the scenes supporting the team, and clients. I particularly love the diversity and challenges that occur daily, and helping owners and their companions. Outside of work I am busy with three boys and keeping active.

I took my dog Sonny recently and met a lovely vet called Hillary. She was so helpful and knew exactly what was wrong with my dog. She told me things about spaniels I didn't know and how best to look after him in his senior years, thank you so much for an excellent experience.

Just one time I have attended here and would never ever go again. Vet was racist to me and said you cut your dogs ears which is not true and I love my dog like my own child. he said this because I am a foreigner. I paid a lot of money vet to be offended.
