Introducing Our Practice Team 

Everyone at our practice is committed to providing you with the very best in pet healthcare. Our veterinary team bring a wealth of experience to the practice and have individually obtained high standards of professional qualification.


Catherine Turton - "CT"
Veterinary Surgeon

I qualified in 1987 from Edinburgh university and went straight into general practice in a busy small animal surgery with lots of clinical freedom/opportunity to rapidly develop my surgical skills in all areas including routine, emergency and orthopaedic surgery.

I then went on to spend a number of years in Mixed and Equine/Small animal practices to broaden my horizons before finally devoting my time exclusively to small animal practice.

My interests still retain a surgical bias as I find solving problems surgically where appropriate, the most rewarding part of the job. I also still have a huge interest in Feline medicine and spent much of my time on the Isle of Wight treating large numbers of cats prior to rehoming for the Cats Protection League.

Gina Lupu

I qualified in 2009 in Romania from University Ion Ionescu, Iasi.
