Dr. John Mather, MA VetMB PGCertSAS MRCVS

Growing up with at least one German Shepherd in the house, and enjoyment of science at school led me to Cambridge University vet school, where I qualified from in 2008. I have worked exclusively with pet animals since and prior to working at Greenbay, I held the role of lead surgeon at a hospital practice in Plymouth. My passion is surgery and I love being able to ‘fix’ animals. I am a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Surgery and am able to perform a number of advanced surgical operations, minimising the need for referral outside Torbay. I like to keep at the forefront of new developments in pet health care and bring this to our patients. Outside of work I enjoy hiking with Burdock and kayaking.
