We are a small animal practice in Reading, first established as part of the Nine Mile Veterinary Group set up in 1985. We are passionate about animal care and our skilled team of veterinarians and vet nurses are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your animals. Because we love animals and strive to provide excellent continuity of care, we are open six days a week and have access to 24-hour emergency care. For your added convenience, there’s free parking for clients at our surgeries.
Mark joined the practice in 2002, having qualified from The Royal Veterinary College in the same year. He has always had an interest in veterinary cardiology and is currently studying for the RCVS certificate in the subject. Mark enjoys both cardiorespiratory medicine and surgery and also performs a great deal of orthopaedic surgery in the practice. Outside work he and his wife have a dog, which can sometimes be seen roaming the practice, two cats, two sons and a daughter, which all combine to keep them busy and sometimes make him glad to get back to work!
