Possibly the most warm and friendly vet you will ever meet! Cate spent her childhood surrounded by pets and decided on her path to become a vet at the age of 12 when she got a weekend job at her village cattery. Cate graduated from Bristol University in 2000 and has been dedicated to small animal practice ever since.
“I enjoy most aspects of the job, particularly the variety-every day is different! I love getting to know people and their pets and working as part of a team with a shared passion. There is nothing more lovely than being able to send a patient home wagging their tail after they have been poorly.”
Cate has a vast wealth of small animal medicine knowledge. She has a particularly keen interest in chronic pain management and holds a GPCert in Western Veterinary Acupuncture and Chronic Pain. A particular focus is helping patients suffering with osteoarthritis.
At home Cate and her husband have four daughters to keep them busy, two naughty terriers; Oaty and Buzz, and a tortoiseshell cat named Bluebell who is responsible for keeping the dogs in order! In her spare time Cate enjoys getting outside in the Kent countryside for a run or walking the dogs.
Cate also selflessly volunteers for the charity Vetlife, playing a crucial role in supporting fellow veterinary professionals who are experiencing depression, stress and anxiety.
