We are a small animal practice established in North East England in 2000, with our main surgery located in Heaton, Newcastle upon Tyne and branch surgeries in Forest Hall, North Shields and Low Fell, Gateshead. Your pets are our priority and our skilled team of veterinarians and vet nurses are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your animals.
Judith qualified from Edinburgh Vet School in 1993. She has been with us since 1999, before which she has saw mixed practice in North West of England and small animal practice in the North East. She is based at our Forest Hall branch. Judith is well known in the area for her knowledge of rabbits after hand rearing a wild rabbit which she kept as a house rabbit, and a strong interest in small furries. She has a cat called Esme who is always causing her trouble!
