Patrick Dooley BSc BVSc MRCVS
Patrick graduated from the university of Ondersterpoordt, South Africa in 1990 with a Batchelor of Veterinary Science degree. He also has a second degree in animal agriculture which he obtained at the University of Natal, South Africa. His areas of interest are small animals, soft tissue surgery and exotics.
Patrick feels that the most rewarding part of his job is sharing a pets life from birth through to the senior years. "When I am there from the first puppy/kitten visit all the way through to the time to say goodbye, and I have had the opportunity to help the pet live a good life. I feel a sense of fulfillment and privilege that I have been able to share such an amazing journey with that pet."
Outside of work Patrick enjoys spending time with his family, travelling, reading, walking, cooking and just enjoying life in general. He loves sports and enjoys keeping tabs on just about any sport you want to name. Patrick is a member of the BSAVA association and the SAVA association.
