Net Vet aims to be a useful resource where pet owners can educate and inform themselves about their pets health. All of the articles published by Net Vet are written by veterinary experts with many years of experience in their chosen field.
Below are details of a few of our writers.

“I enjoy keeping and breeding tropical fish such as Cichlids and Catfish but have a love for all kinds of animals; my wife and I currently have two dogs and three cats and never seem to be without some kind of animal running around our feet!”

His first position was at a small clinic in his home town of Bristol where he gained valuable small animal experience followed by work in Edinburgh, Dunfermline and Kenya.
