Dr Tiphany Perrez – Clinical Director
Tiphany has been with Parkvets since 2012 and brings her particular interest in oncology to the practice. She has become our ‘go to’ vet in this challenging area of veterinary care. In addition she is currently studying for her Certificate in imaging.
Dr Alex Davies – Surgical Director
With over 10 years of service with Parkvets Alex is our lead orthopaedic vet. Having achieved his Certificate in small animal surgery in 2015, he is now supporting his interest in surgery by taking his imaging studies further, and he intends to have a 2nd Certificate in a couple of years.
Dr Daniella Santos
Daniella joined Parkvets in the autumn of 2017 with the express aim of developing the care we provide for our exotic patients. Daniella qualified in 2012, and soon began to work towards her Advanced Certificate in Exotics.
Mr Graham Peck
As the practice’s longest serving veterinary surgeon Graham Peck is our most experienced clinician. As a diploma holder in radiology, Graham is constantly called upon by his colleagues for second opinions – something he enjoys and encourages.
Dr Shannon Gaffaney
Shannon joined the practice in 2006 bringing her interest in ophthalmology with her. She is the vet her colleagues routinely turn to for advice on all things eye related but in addition Shannon is a strong general practitioner and she provides coaching and mentoring for her less experienced colleagues.
Dr Emily Capes
After joining Parkvets in 2012 Emily quickly moved into a hospital vet role. Her dedication, intellect and communication skills made her a natural fit for the busy hospital environment. She has gained her BSAVA Post Graduate Certificate in small animal medicine and is already planning on extending her knowledge and training in dentistry. No doubt another qualification will be in the bag soon.
Dr Martin Au
Martin has been with Parkvets man and boy. He started as a new graduate in 2008 and has gone on to become a hospital vet and to achieve his Certificate in small animal surgery. Martin loves to work, but he also loves to travel and will often be seen in far flung corners of the world. He has a reputation within the practice for his fearsome appetite and he can usually be bribed with food.
Dr Emily Brady
Having enjoyed a very successful position as the resident vet at the Parkvets Eltham clinic, Emily has now taken up a role within the hospital team. Her clinical skills and her natural ability to manage a very busy workload, make her a real asset to our busy hospital team. Emily is a keen sports person, keeping fit through cycling and tennis, so we will be making the most of her never ending energy in her new role.
Dr Carolyn Smith-Evans
Dr Smith-Evans joined Parkvets in the summer of 2018 bringing her experience to the role of Duty Vet. She has responsibility for the care of our in-patients and is often the first port of call for emergencies. She works alongside the ward nurses and the case vets to ensure that the agreed treatment plans are delivered as planned and that our guests have the best stay possible.
Dr Rose Edmonds
Rose started her work with Parkvets at the Belvedere clinic where she enjoyed strong relationships with her clients and patients. Her recent move to the hospital allows her to pursue her surgical Certificate and meet a whole new set of furry friends.
Dr Marisa Vicente
Since completing her veterinary Masters in 2015 Dr Vicente has steadily developed her skills and her career. She joined the Parkvets hospital team in the autumn of 2018 and brought with her a passion for medicine. Dr Vicente is currently studying for her Certificate in Small Animal Medicine and this, combined with her particular interest in imaging, makes her a great complement to our surgeons.
The hospital vets are supported by our amazing team of junior vets. Having joined us in the summer of 2018, Jean, Amy, Isabella, Luca, Sam and Kirsten are being mentored by senior colleagues whilst also continuing external training. Rita and Gareth are giving them the benefit of their first year’s experience at Parkvets, and they all have access to the very latest clinical thinking and certainly keep the experienced vets on their toes.
