The Team at Henley House Vets
Our team are the beating heart of Henley House. Our dedication and enthusiasm for providing the best care for your pets is unrivalled.
Headed up by Chris, who started at Henley House on his own, the team has grown over the years and now consists of a solid core of skilled individuals with varied experience and backgrounds, culminating in an impressive collection of veterinary experts.
We understand that you want your pet’s visit to be a positive one, which is why we have taken great lengths to minimise stress in the practice. We have separate cat and dog waiting areas and instil a calm environment in our reception area.
Your companions are in safe hands.
Chris is originally from Yorkshire and qualified from the Royal (Dick) Veterinary College, Edinburgh in 1995. He has worked all over the country including 2 ½ years running a busy emergency clinic in South Wales and some time working with Cheetahs and other wildlife in South Africa. He took over at Henley House in November 2006 and aims to continuously improve the quality of care offered at the practice.
In his spare time he likes scuba diving, skiing, golf and occasionally he makes a fool of himself on the cricket pitch.
