Catherine Johns BVSc MRCVS

Catherine Johns BVSc MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

Catherine graduated from the university of Bristol in 2015 and spent some time at a dog sanctuary and clinic in Thailand. She then started to work at a small animal practice in Worcester, before moving back to join The Vet. In her spare time, she likes to fit in as much climbing as possible, either at one of the indoor walls in Bristol or getting outside into the Aron Gorge, Wye Valley and further afield. If she can’t be climbing she is most likely to be found either swimming, reading or planning her next big adventure. Catherine’s’ current flat doesn’t allow her to have any pets but she can’t wait until she can get her own cat again.

Paul Whiting

Centre Director

Paul has lived in Greater Manchester for the past 12 years and is now an adopted Northerner. Therefore he has a great affinity for the area.

He lives locally with his family, including his wife, 2 daughters. All his life he has been surrounded by dogs, cats, goldfish and the occasional rabbit.  He currently has 3 rescue dogs – Bensonmum the Whippet (aged 3), Charlie the King Charles Spaniel (also aged 3) and his latest addition, Poppy the Sprocker (aged 11) newly acquired from the Dogs Trust.

Because of his love of all animals, Paul jumped at the opportunity of joining the vet team. Outside of work Paul is a keen bird watcher, runner and enjoys playing squash and cricket. His ideal time away would be out on the beach with his family and dogs.
