Darren Partridge – Veterinary Surgeon
Qualified from Bristol as a Veterinary Surgeon and anatomist, I have a passion for caring for all animals and strongly believe vets should by definition be independent professionals, not corporate employees subjected to profit as their prime motive. I see all the ‘exotic’ species and have worked in research in marine biology (sharks), arachnology (spiders) in Mongolia and on several palaeontological expeditions. A former aerobatic pilot, motor racer, mountaineer, diver, fellrunner, writer and fitness instructor, I am a 1st Dan blackbelt with the local Abel Karate club and train at CrossFit 2012. I own four veterinary practices looking after the pets of Molesey, Teddington and Claygate 24 hours a day. I have a little border terrier called Archie, two cat brothers Jasper and Flynn and a crested gecko Drift. We have lived in Molesey for twenty years.
