Anil Nathan - Veterinary Surgeon

"I qualified from Edinburgh University in 1999 and worked in 3 small animal practices before starting my own practice here in North Weald in January 2004. I enjoy general practice, meeting the clients and their variety of pets. At home I have 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 guinea pigs, ten sheep and six chickens at the last count!"



Kathryn Lawrenson - Veterinary Surgeon

"I graduated from Bristol University with a veterinary degree with distinction. I enjoy surgery and medicine, particularly dermatology and internal medicine cases such as diagnosing and treating patients with diabetes, hyperthyroidism, Cushing's disease and rare diseases such as Addison's disease. I have a husband (Oscar) which is coincidently the name of the first dog I ever castrated! I love all animals but have a soft spot for border collies as have been rounded up by my own, my parents' and my grandparents' collies since a young age!"

I joined North Weald Vets in 2014 and my special interests are rabbits and behaviour. I have also completed the Chicken Vet course and look forward to seeing a few more two legged patients!
