Paul is the lead vet and owner of Knutsford Veterinary Surgery. Paul opened the surgery in 2014 and has enjoyed serving pets in Knutsford and across North East Cheshire ever since. Paul qualified from The Royal Veterinary College (RVC), University of London in 2007 and also has a Post Graduate certificate in Veterinary Ophthalmology, meaning he has been a vet for 15 years.
Paul completed a Rotating Internship in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery at the RVC the year after he qualified. Working with a range of different specialists has proven invaluable when dealing with Knutsford’s sickest and most complicated patients. He completed his post graduate certificate in small animal ophthalmology in 2011 and is currently studying towards becoming an advanced practitioner in veterinary ophthalmology through the British Small Animal Veterinary Association.
Paul’s favourite part of the job is consultations with caring owners, where they establish life-long bonds with owners and pets alike. No two days are the same and the Knutsford team undertakes a whole range of medical and surgical procedures in the fully equipped surgery. After the morning team meeting, his daily duties include consultations or operations through until mid-afternoon, catching up with paperwork and enquiries in between.
Outside of work, Paul enjoys walking with his 2 Labradors called Fen and Summer, DIY and woodwork, cycling, walking with friends and family, drinking coffee (and the occasional glass of wine). His favourite song is Clocks by Coldplay and his favourite film is Forrest Gump. The most unusual animal Paul has ever treated is a Silverback Gorilla.
