After qualifying from Glasgow in 1995, Gareth worked in a large mixed practice in Staffordshire before deciding his path lay in treating small animals. He has spent around half of his career working in the charity sector, in the Midlands, North East and in London. His work has provided him with great experience of seeing many very unfortunate trauma patients. In March 2003, he moved to Macclesfield from a hospital run by the country's largest veterinary group in London. In 2005 Gareth passed his Certificate in Small Animal Surgery awarded by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. Gareth runs a bespoke surgical consultancy service and visits us at Macclesfield weekly.
