About Vet

As an RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Surgery, I have a wealth of knowledge and experience in all aspects of orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery.

My aim in using this platform is to provide independent, consultant-level second opinions to owners who are trying to decide if surgery is in the best interest of their pet. I'm able to review your pets' clinical history, x-rays, and existing recommendations as required. I will discuss the case and surgical options, alongside any non-surgical alternatives. I will provide evidence-based advice that takes into account your individual circumstances, helping you get the desired outcome for your pet.

Areas of support

  • Pre op: Detailed explanations of surgical treatment options, consideration of non-surgical options, discussion of complications, provide a recommendation
  • Post op: How to assist your pet during recovery - medication, exercise management, complimentary therapy (hydrotherapy/physiotherapy)

Our appointment will be 45 minutes which will provide ample time for you to gain a full understanding of all the options and feel confident in choosing how to move forward.

I look forward to hearing from you.
