Gavin Collyer

Joint Venture Partner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Gavin Collyer bio

I qualified as a Veterinary Surgeon in South Africa in 1999 and shortly after moved to the UK. Having spent my first two years in mixed practice I then chose to work solely with small animals. This is not my first involvement with Companion Care Vets, having previously been a partner in the successful Milton Keynes surgery from 2002 until 2007, when my wife and I decided to move back to Worcestershire to be closer to family. Having spent some time working for various veterinary practices in the area and being a regional clinical manager for a national veterinary out-of-hours provider, the opportunity arose for me to re-join Companion Care when Pets at Home decided to open a new store in Kidderminster in April 2011.

I enjoy all aspects of small animal practice but particularly enjoy the interaction with clients and to building long lasting relationships with them. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, two children, two dogs and two cats. I also enjoy outdoor pursuits especially mountain biking and fishing.

I am originally from Iasi, a beautiful city from Romania, the same place where I graduated as a veterinarian in 2016.  I moved to the UK and joined Companion Care Kidderminster in September 2021, guided by  my eagerness to keep learning and improve myself as a veterinarian.

During my leisure time I love to read, to cook and to spend  quality time with my family and our cat Rasha.

I graduated as a veterinarian in South Africa in 2020 and joined Companion Care Kidderminster in March 2022. It has been an absolute privilege to join such an incredible working team and I appreciate the fact that every day brings a new challenge and learning experience.  

I have a great love for small animals and really enjoy connecting with people from various walks of life.

My hobbies include music, walking in nature and visiting historical sites. In my spare time, I enjoy a good book, a great cup of coffee and quality time with friends and family.

Practice Manager

I first began working at Companion Care in 2015 after graduating from Salford University with a degree in Wildlife Conservation & Zoo Biology. I had always wanted to work with animals and veterinary science was of large interest to me during my studies.

I started as a Veterinary Care Assistant; assisting at reception & with the clinical team as needed. I loved the variety of each day with both the support and clinical team, and getting to know all the clients and their pets. I took on additional responsibilities in 2017 and had the opportunity to learn and develop further in the role of Practice Administrator. Most recently I took on the role of Practice Manager in December 2020. I really enjoy working to help every member of the team and our wonderful clients & their pets.

Out of work I enjoy long walks in the forest, reading, writing, spending time with my friends and family, going to watch live music & caring for my crested gecko Gloria and our family dog Dougie.

After my second child I decided to have a career change and joined the team when we opened in April 2011. I have found the career transition to be a pleasant change, and find the interaction with clients and patients really interesting and diverse. I really enjoy that no two days are the same and how well we all get along as a team. Away from work I have 2 young boys and a husband who keep me very busy.

I joined the team in August 2011. Previously I worked in banking until I left to become a full time mum. I have 2 small children and a cocker spaniel who keep me extremely busy outside of work. I thoroughly enjoy my role in the team and find it very rewarding meeting customers and animals alike.

I started working at Companion Care in 2021 when I joined the team as a Veterinary Care Assistant. I love getting to work so closely alongside the vets and getting to help take care of the animals.

When I am not at work I spend most of my time taking care of my own animals, which includes four lovely rats that keep me very entertained!
