Robert Pontefract

B.V.M.S, Cert V Ophthal, M.R.C.V.S.

Qualifying from Glasgow Vet School many years ago, Rob worked initially in mixed practice in Castle Bromwich and then Selby. He then did an intensive Small Animal Internship at The University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, before returning to the UK. He gained his Certificate in Veterinary Ophthalmology in 1989 and then succeeded in gaining a position on the British Veterinary Association’s Eye Panel for hereditary disease by examination.

In the practice, Rob does a mixture of general small animal work, (and within that focuses on the surgical procedures) and Ophthalmology work (Comprising referrals of more difficult cases from other vets, and BVA eye testing of breeding dogs). He also does a fair amount of heart work (cardiology) which involves ECGs, chest X-rays and echocardiography.

Non-clinical interests are playing the piano, music, theatre, cycling, art and photography; but the most consuming thing is climbing. The latter varies from rock climbing to bouldering to alpine mountaineering and on to winter and ice-climbing.

Sue Booth

B.Vet.Med, M.R.C.V.S.

Sue qualified from the Royal Veterinary College, London in 2004. First of all she came to work for us straight from university. Then she worked in other small animal practices (practices that deal mainly with cats, dogs, rabbits etc) including working in emergency clinics where she developed her skills in dealing with difficult situations. Then Sue returned to Stamford.

Sue likes to prove her worth in managing to catheterise difficult veins and similar problems. She has a penchant for imaging (ultrasound, X-ray, endoscopy etc) whilst also showing a good ability with surgery and other areas.

Non-clinical interests include films, dining out and of course horses, and especially her own horse, Laurie. Much of her life revolves around him, and competing, in various venues around the country. The Sue and Laurie team excel at dressage, and they have shown themselves to be more than competent even against professional riders.

Daisy Jackson

B.V.Sc, M.R.C.V.S.

Daisy joined the surgery the most recently. Having done her degree at Bristol Vet School, she brings enthusiasm and a freshness to looking at animal problems and illness. Daisy likes most of the fields within Veterinary medicine, but especially internal medicine where she finds she can apply her logical approach to good effect. She loves exploring all the areas of small animal medicine.

In her non-clinical pursuits, Daisy shows a wide variety of interests ranging from the arts and crafts to baking (and we know this includes sampling the results) to running, and playing the flute.
