OUR VETS

We have six veterinary surgeons at the Bilton Veterinary Centre with a wide range of skills and interests.  All of our vets have over three years experience, and the majority have over 15 years!  We are all based out of the same building and so we really try and encourage continuity of care - you can usually see the vet of your choice meaning a relationship can build up and this benefits yourself, your pet and us as well!

 

All our vets do over 35 hours of extra training and study per year and whilst each vet is an accomplished General Practitioner, we all have our own personal areas of expertise, meaning that we often can refer difficult cases between us internally.

    Clinical Director
    I joined the practice in 1982 and became senior partner in 2006. I have particular interests in dentistry and internal medicine.

    I have two border terriers called Ginny and Pickle and a recent addition of a true mongrel called Reggie, who was abandoned at the surgery one day.

    I am married to Adrian and have two children who are now at university.

    As one of the Directors of the practice, I am also an integral part of the “non-clinical” side of running a veterinary practice.

    I qualified from Bristol University in 1996 and joined the practice shortly afterwards and became director in 2002. As well as being a good all-round GP, I have a particular interest in soft tissue surgery.

    Having recently lost my 16 year old dog, I now have a lovely Black Labrador called Harry who needs a LOT of exercise!

    Outside of work, I enjoy swimming and walking as well as films and books.

    Senior Veterinary Surgeon
    I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in London in 2001 and joined the practice shortly after working with the foot and mouth outbreak.


    When Bilton was a mixed practice, I originally worked with both farm and small animals. Now that we are a small animal only clinic, I enjoy the challenges that come with being a GP Vet! I do have particular interests in ultrasound, cardiology and ophthalmology.

    My own pet dog recently passed away, so currently I just have a large cat called Erroll. I am married to Katie (also a vet) and have two young children.

    I am responsible for the website design as well as running our Facebook and Twitter accounts - almost a full time job in its own right!

    I qualified from Bristol University in 1996 and I joined the practice in 2004 having worked in several practices previously. I have particular interests in both soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery.

    At home, I have a pet Labrador called Ruby and three young children Toby, Amber and Imogen who certainly keep me on my toes.

    Away from work, I enjoy playing the guitar and I am a keen follower of anything to do with motor sports!

    Veterinary Surgeon
    I joined the practice in 2015 after qualifying from Warsaw University in 2013. I have worked in several practices down south before heading north to Rugby.


    I have a passion for all things veterinary, particularly Dentistry.

    As well as being fluent in English, I am also able to speak Polish, Russian and Czech! I hope to learn Spanish next! I have been busy trying to teach the rest of the staff here Polish.. Not that successfully!

    Outside of work, I enjoy travelling and visiting new places in England - especially the coast where I can swim in the sea (whatever the time of year!!)
