Being a Veterinary surgeon is a challenging, but satisfying profession. The work is extremely varied- from clipping the nails of a parrot to operating on a great dane all in the course of a day! When not at work I enjoy keeping fit, gardening and reading.

Pets:

4 cats: Harrison, Matilda, Benson & Pickles
1 Tortoise: Sidney

I came south from the Wirral after qualifying from the University Of Liverpool. My first vet job was at my student practice following graduation in 2010 and I joined the Lockwood Group in 2011. Since 2016 I have run the Blackheath Branch. I particularly enjoy the challenges of working sole charge -this also allows me to know all Blackheath's pets and clients at a more personal level. Having been at the other end of the consult table I can understand how frustrating it is to have to explain what the problem was again- it's nice to see the same person twice! My interests include clinical pathology (the diagnosis of disease using tests), and ultrasound. I always approach any job I do with enthusiasm and I like to take a thorough approach. In my spare time I regularly attend military style fitness classes and have done a variety of races (some harder than others!!).

Pets:

I have an ever hungry (just like me) yellow bellied terrapin called Herbert, and four geriatric goldfish including a blind one-eyed fish called George.

I've been working as a small animal vet since I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in London nearly 7 years ago. After working on the South coast, then taking time out to travel and work abroad, I decided to return to my home town and started working at Rosewood Animal Hospital in Wolverhampton in 2015. I love being able to use my skills and knowledge to help animals and their owners. I also love travelling and feel very lucky that I have been able to put my skills to use volunteering at veterinary charities all over the world.

Pets:

2 naughty bunnies, Rosemary and Kelvin

Kathryn Carder BVSc BSc MRCVS

Position:

Head Veterinary Surgeon

Interests:

Dogs, Cats, Rabbits, Exotics, Soft Tissue Surgery and Dermatology
I love spending my working day with animals; every day is different and rewarding in so many ways. I can't imagine getting out of bed for any other job. I love all aspects of veterinary work, but I am hoping to complete my certificate in exotic medicine in 2019. In my spare time I enjoy running and spending time with my beautiful daughter.

Pets:

Since having my daughter, the time and money commitments that are needed for a pet are not there, but luckily I get to have lots of cuddles with my patients on a daily basis.

It's a new challenge every day. I enjoy meeting all the different types of pets may it be a cat, dog or even a python! Treating our furry friends is a rewarding experience and there's always the possibility of a good puppy or kitten cuddle. In my spare time you will find me travelling to somewhere exotic, scuba diving or hiking.
