Patrick Dale qualified as a Veterinary Surgeon from Liverpool University in 1986. Working in Frome in Somerset for a year after graduation helped me develop an interest in both horses and small animals.
Subsequently working in a truly mixed practice in Henley Arden in Warwickshire, gave me experience with cattle and sheep.
Settling in Tring in 1988 then led me into rather a happy niche, dealing once more with both horses and small animals, but ultimately from 2003 with small animals only. Amongst other interests, at home I live with my wife, children, dog, cat, sheep, and chickens.
Holly Arnott graduated from the Royal Veterinary College of London in 2005. She has worked at a local small animal practice for the past 11 years and has joined Springwell Vets in May 2018.
Holly has a keen interest in surgery and has completed a General Practitioners certificate in Small Animal Practice.
She has two English Springer Spaniels - Lottie and Maggie (Lottie's daughter), a Border Collie - Nell, a Jack Russel - Molly and a Rhodesian Ridgeback - Tally, and two horses - Popcorn and Christie. The animals have plenty of space though as she lives on a dairy farm, so it isn't as crazy as it seems!
