We are a small animal practice in Bath, first established in 2010. We are passionate about animals and our skilled team of veterinary surgeons 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 seven days a week at our London Road surgery and have access to 24-hour emergency care.
Kate graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2005, and worked in mixed practice in Australia before packing her bag and heading for Blighty. She travelled and worked as a locum before taking up a permanent job in a busy hospital near Cheltenham for five years. Kate locumed at Ashman Jones regularly from 2017, but has now taken on the challenge of leading the team. She has a particular interest in soft tissue surgery. In her spare time Kate keeps fit with the company of her Lurcher called Simon, enjoying taking on DIY challenges and has even been known to get into a boxing ring.
Dr Juliet Cairney BVSc MRCVS
Returning to her home in Bath after working in mixed practice in Gloucestershire, Juliet joined us in 2017 after deciding to focus solely on small animal practice. She has a special interest in ophthalmology and small animal surgery and looks to develop these skills whilst working at both the London Road and Widcombe branches. Juliet is an avid wind surfer and is known to travel the world looking for the perfect conditions.
Veerle qualified from the University of Ghent, Belgium, in 2001. She worked in large animal practice in France before moving to the UK in 2003. Over the next five years, Veerle worked at conventional small animal practices throughout the country, and spent several months as a volunteer with animal charities in Samos and Bhutan. She developed an interest in integrated veterinary care (including acupuncture, chiropractic care, therapeutic exercise, nutrition and herbal medicine), and has been running a thriving referral service since 2011. Veerle aims to work together with the referring conventional vet to maximise the well-being of pets at all stages of their lives. She works mainly with dogs, but will also see cats and the occasional rabbit, chicken or iguana. Veerle spends her spare time with her two young sons and husband, exploring the countryside, growing flowers and vegetables.
Dr Clara Greenwood BVetMed iBSc MSc MRCVS
Clara graduated from London University in 2007. Before joining us permanently in October 2015, she worked at the practice as a locum for two years. She has also previously worked in our emergency out of hours clinic in Bristol, so she has never been a stranger to the practice. Clara has a wonderful calm manner which puts her patients as ease and means that she is also instrumental in mentoring our younger vets when they need help or advice. Clara likes charity work, hanging out with her rescue dog named Betty, and being a part of The Fantasy Orchestra with her solo voice and her bass clarinet.
