Andrew qualified from Edinburgh University as a vet in 1985, and started his veterinary career in Dover a few weeks later. Apart from a few months off to travel, he has worked in Kent ever since, taking over the practice from Mr Flower in February 2002. Andrew has son called Rory and has a whippet called Nerys & has recently rescued 2 cats from Spain.
Andrew completed the certificate in orthopaedic surgery in 1993, at the time only one of 20 individuals.
Ever since he has a spent most of the past 20 years doing little more than complex orthopaedic surgery with a little dabble in travel and gardening.
He also has a keen interest in ‘keyhole’ surgery and pain control.
When Nery’s was spayed recently, there was no other option that would do as far as Andrew was concerned than keyhole surgery. You can see a video here of here http://youtu.be/QLfwJExSAko taken 1 day after her operation – hopefully you can see why we recommend it!
Outside work Andrew’s main passion is cycling, and he competes with a cycle racing team called PMR@ Toachim House on a regular basis as well as participating on sponsored rides for various worthy causes, particularly the Guide Dogs for the Blind for whom he has raised over £15,000 to date.
