I grew up in Kent and qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in London in 2012. I joined this practice shortly afterwards and have continued to pursue my interest in advanced dentistry ever since. At home I have my two cats, Optimus and Furiosa, who enjoy living in the countryside as much as I do.

After working as an RVN for two years I decided I wanted to take the next step to be a qualified vet. After a few years experience in other practices I joined this practice in September 2022, which is great as I live locally with my 4 cats and baby boy.

I studied and qualified as an RVN at the practice back in 2019. I was more than happy to move up to the area from Northamptonshire. I have gone on to rescue two dogs locally called Alfie and Peggy.

I have been at covering at the practice since July 2022. I really enjoy the challenge of a busy practice and have been doing so since I joined the veterinary industry in 2010. I have my feline certificate which comes in handy with 4 cats at home.

This isn't our regular vet, we were referred to them as our dog had a dental issue so we weren't sure what to expect. Thankfully, the veterinary surgeon Dr Hannah Hewitson who specialises in dental care was very kind, caring and took the time to explain all our options and discuss the concerns with us so that we could make the best decision for our dog. I would not hesitate to return to this surgery for any future dental concerns. Thank you Dr Hewitson for your time, patience and care of our silly pup. 😊

I attended the practice without an appointment with a medical emergency with my dog. The staff were excellent and very understanding. I was seen promptly by a vet who was absolutely lovely and great with Ted. I would definitely go again and recommend this practice to others.

I had my dog in for major dental work today. I was worried about the anaesthetic as he is nearly 10 years old. The lady vet went through the procedure with me and helped put my mind at ease. He's home now and starting his recovery with no signs of discomfort. Excellent service
