Guy - CircleDr Guy Carter - Senior Partner, Head of Watford Region and Senior Project Manager 

I love animals and have always wanted to be a vet. Soon after qualifying in South Africa I was drafted into 2 years of military service. Upon completing the Army Officer's course I was seconded to Zululand where I oversaw the health of the National cattle herd in an area the size of Wales!  In particular, I was privileged to be responsible for Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini's Nguni cattle herd. Following this, I enjoyed travelling around the UK, working in both small and large animal surgeries, before joining Medivet. I am married with two children and two dogs - Dixie, a Border Terrier, and Wallis, a Rhodesian Ridgeback. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, skiing and reading. One of my most memorable experiences was standing on top of Mount Kilimanjaro in February 2010.

Candice SummersCandice Summers - Partner & Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2007 and have since then gained my RCVS Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice in Medicine.  I am one of the lead Veterinary Surgeons at Medivet Watford 24hr Hospital caring for many of our inpatients. I have a special interest in looking after our many pets with chronic diseases such as Diabetes, Kidney and Thyroid Disease. As part of our Clinical Committee, I am dedicated to help develop care guidelines and maintain best standards of care for all the pets we see.  I have recently adopted a stray little black cat now called Sebastian who I look forward to giving a hug to every day after work! 

Andrea CentinaroAndrea Centinaro - Partner and Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated in 2009 and worked with horses for the first 3 years. I then chose to work with small animals and I am particularly interested in soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery. Following these interests I have completed a certificate in Small Animal Surgery in October 2014.


Medivet Watford is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year providing round-the-clock service for hospitalised inpatients and all new cases, both routine and emergency. The practice has benefited from extensive investment over the past few years and has recently been fully refurbished. It also acts as a referral centre for other local Medivet branches and provides after hours service to a number of independent practices in the Watford area.
