I grew up on a farm in Northern Ireland before going to Edinburgh Vet School.
I was Petplan Vet of the Year in 2008, having been runner-up in 2007 whilst working at my former surgeries around the Woodbridge – Framlingham area.
Alongside my clinical work I am also a honorary lecturer at Nottingham University Vet School and vice chair at the European School of Veterinary Post graduate studies.
I speak regularly at all the UK veterinary conferences.
My wife Georgia grew up in Suffolk and together we have Freya (13) and Seth (11), Bear a 6 year old Miniature Labradoodle, Ellie an Australian Miniature Labradoodle puppy and 3 pet sheep called Tillykins, Luna and FG!
