In Memory of Chris Carter

We are utterly heartbroken to have to tell you that Chris passed away suddenly on Friday 30th June. Chris opened this Practice in 1982 and it quickly grew to the successful and thriving practice it is today.

Chris officially retired at the start of 2020 but continued to help us out by running vaccine clinics once we were able to do these after the COVID shutdown.


Working for Chris was like working for family – with his warm-hearted nature, he made everyone feel welcome at the clinic.


Many of our Vets and Nurses have begun their careers with Chris. Some starting as school work experience students and then returning to see practice whilst at university and then starting with us as their first job.


His kindness, compassion and zest for life shone through in his everyday life. He was an active person and enjoyed skiing and later in life he started doing charity cycle rides completing 500 miles in under 7 days.


For those of you that knew him and loved him and would like to leave a personal message, please come to the surgery to sign the memorial book.
