Meet the team
Jake graduated in South Africa in the year 2000, and after a short stint working there, moved to the UK where he has been ever since. His first few years were spent between Northern Ireland and Kent, and then spent a little time alternating life between travelling and locums, before settling down into Surrey where he worked for the 7 years prior to starting in Gloucester. He enjoys most aspects of veterinary practice, but is particularly keen on ophthalmology, clinical pathology and medicine. In his spare time he is a keen, but not very good, skier and enjoys hiking and photography.
Ben graduated from Dublin in the summer of 2015, and came here as his first Veterinary job after qualifying. He is a keen hockey player, and very quickly joined a team after moving to the UK. Ben has a keen interest in veterinary orthopaedics.
