Tim Stead BVSc, MRCVS
Tim SteadTim qualified from Bristol vet school two decades before the BBC did the series of vets in practice that made many of the students famous. He was there from 1978 until 1983. As a result you will not see him on the TV!
His only claim to fame came from repairing the bill of a swan that flew into a lamp post in Clifton. He was photographed by the local evening press wiring it back together which is rather like wiring two pieces of edam cheese together.
He has twenty hens as pets. He is married and has one son and four step children. He is a local parish councillor and has been a governor of Skelton Primary school for over twenty years. His hobbies include DIY, gardening, conservation, running and chain saw work.
He has been on courses for ultrasound, cytology (looking at cells under the microscope), laser surgery, anaesthesia, radiology, rabbit medicine, emergency medicine and many others.He attends weekly internet teaching on new techniques
We employ nine nurses some have been working at the surgery for over twenty years. They all have pets and a wealth of experience in handling and looking after pets. Some specialise in behaviour and obedience problems, some in bull terriers and collies and some have detailed knowledge of small furries.
