Katie Birbeck

Veterinary Surgeon

Katie joined Beacon View in 2021. After doing cover work for us, she fell in love with the practice and our clients. Having grown up locally in Deal, Katie moved back to the area after her time at Vet School in Bristol.

Katie has always loved being around animals and after helping out at a veterinary practice when she was 13 she became fascinated with veterinary medicine and was certain she wanted to pursue a career as a vet. Katie graduated from Bristol Vet School with distinction, receiving an award for the highest grade in her year group!

“I enjoy meeting different people and their pets and building relationships over time. I love the variety of working in veterinary practice and how no two days are ever the same. In veterinary medicine there is always something new to learn!”

Katie has a keen interest in Emergency and Critical Care; she particularly enjoys the fast pace of emergency medicine and the huge difference to you can make for the patient and owner. Katie is also pursuing her interest in diagnostic imaging. At home Katie has two dogs of her own, one very energetic Sprocker Spaniel called Rupert and a cheeky German Spitz called Freddie; both of whom entertain Katie at agility training. Katie also has a lovely rabbit called Spot who thinks that she is a dog!
