Clare Catchpole - Bachelor of veterinary Science
'I grew up in Tavanga, New Zealand and attended Massey University from where I graduated with a Bachelor of veterinary Science in 1999. After working a ski season in California I decided to keep travelling and came to Europe.
I have been working in a mixed general practice in South East Cornwall for the past nine years.
While being adept at most of the aspects of mixed practice I am mostly interested in small animal work. I have come to Filham Park to concentrate on small animal surgery. I am currently completing the RCVS certificate in small animal surgery. I live on a dairy farm and have 2 cats, Molly the collie and a lot of pet cows. In my spare time I enjoy walking the coastal paths and moorland, reading a good book and travelling the world.' Clare is no longer working full time at the practice, she works primarily in a practice in Cornwall and visits us once a fortight to perform complex orthopaedic proceedures.
