Claire BVM&S MRCVS
Senior Veterinary Surgeon
Claire has wanted to be a vet since the time she started walking. Growing up, Claire was a keen horse-rider and bunny-keeper. She graduated from Edinburgh University where she developed a keen interest in exotic medicine and wildlife at their specialist hospital. After graduating Claire worked in charity clinics in Morocco treating working horses and donkeys. She returned to the UK to work in a busy mixed practice in Kent that specialised in exotic species and wildlife, in which she saw everything from chihuahuas to bears.
Claire has a great passion for conservation, which led her to work in Maldives for a couple of years rescuing and rehabilitating sea turtles at the only veterinary clinic in the county. She is still involved with the charity and in her free time she aims to help raise awareness of sea turtle and ocean conservation through education. She is also in the process of publishing some scientific work on unique sea turtle cases on the island. Claire’s main passion outside of work is the ocean, she’s a keen surfer and kite surfer and even in the depths of a British winter you can find her out in the waves on her days off.
Claire has a broad range of interests in veterinary medicine including surgery, exotic species and behaviour and welfare of all our furry friends.
