Profile: Peter Kettlewell

What is your job in the practice?

Vet and co-director of Chipping Norton Veterinary Hospital.

What are your special interests at work?

I am very keen on all types of imaging, from x-rays and ultrasound to endoscopy. I have also specialised in more advanced surgical techniques involving soft tissue surgery and orthopaedics, and I am one of the main vets to look after our zoo patients and exotic pets. Outside of the practice I am Junior Vice President of the British Veterinary Zoological Society, the organisation for vets working with wildlife, zoo animals, and pets other than dogs and cats.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy being outside and active with my family and animals. I love many outdoor activities including cycling, skiing, tennis, triathlon, mountain hiking, sailing and a bit of body surfing. Every summer my family goes to a small cottage in Connemara on the West coast of Ireland which allows me to totally relax and have great fun.

Any pets?

Otter the cockerpoo and two cats.
