Ross Kelly B.V.M.S M.R.C.V.S
I qualified from The University of Glasgow in 1989 and moved immediately to Suffolk, where I spent the next 14 years in a very mixed practice before leaving in 2003 for a 5 year stint in industry. My time in a huge multinational company taught me, perhaps surprisingly, a great deal about the most important aspect of veterinary practice, namely client & patient care – an aspect about which way too many vets pay only lip service.
It was with this in the forefront of my plans that I stepped back into veterinary practice, setting up Cedarwood Veterinary Practice with a massive amount of help and support from my girlfriend Helen. We opened the doors in 2008 & since then have grown steadily, with our ethos to constantly keep client & patient care at the heart of what we do. Life outside of work, we are basically nomads, spending most of our time outdoors. Helen and I married in St.Lucia in 2012 with 35 of our friends & family around us and honeymooned mostly under the Caribbean Sea with an aqualung.
At home, we spend a lot of our time, whatever the weather, under canvas somewhere or other along with our amphibious black Labradog, Alfie. Sometimes this will be as Scouts… I have been a leader for almost 30 years now (saves growing up completely, after all!)
