Mark – Veterinary Surgeon
I obtained my BVSc from Liverpool University in 1991. Before joining Medivet, I owned a two branch practice in Bristol for 18 years before selling and returning to my Shropshire roots. My special interests include treating exotic pets. At home I have several pets; Shire horses, Highland cows, dogs, cats, coatis, skunks, Southdown sheep, tortoises and owls! Outside of work, I enjoy renovating houses, steam engine restoration and family life.
Sophie Byrne - Head Veterinary Nurse
Before joining the Medivet family, I studied at the Souhull College where I qualified in 2014 as a Registered Veterinary Nurse. I have also completed a level 3 national diploma in Animal Management. I have a special interest in intensive and critical care, nurse clinics and assisting in the operating theatre. At home I have many pets of my own including my dogs, rabbits and terrapins! In my spare time I am a keen horse rider and enjoy spending quality time with family and friends.
