Veterinary Surgeons


Principal Veterinary Surgeon

Jeremy is the Principal of Burnham House - which is named after the town in Norfolk where he spent his childhood. After his veterinary training at Cambridge University he spent some years working in Dover before opening his own surgery on Castle Street. He is a great supporter of preventative care for ageing pets, and many of his patients are enjoying their golden years. His great passion is wildlife, especially birds and sea mammals, and he is always happy to be called out if a seal - or the occasional passing whale - finds itself in trouble on our shores. He is a member of the British Small Animal Veterinary Association; Association of Avian Veterinarians, and the British Veterinary Forensic and Law Association.  Jeremy has been nominated for national PetPlan Vet of the Year many, many times; and has also received awards from the RSPCA for his work promoting animal welfare.  In 2012 he reached the final four for the Chris Laurence Vet of the Year Award at the UK Ceva Awards for Animal Welfare.

Rachel qualified from Nottingham University veterinary school.  She has particular interests in exotic animal medicine and small animal internal medicine - especially endocrinology (hormone disorders) - and is a member of the British Veterinary Zoological Society as well as the British Veterinary Association and British Small Animal Veterinary Association.  Originally from Sussex, she is now settled into Kent, and has a dedicated following amongst our companion and exotic clients.  Rachel enjoys climbing and getting wet (not at the same time) with kayaking and scuba diving.  She also loves to cook so keeps the practice running with a regular supply of baked goods!  Rachel was nominated for PetPlan's national Vet of the Year in 2014 & 2015. Rachel is currently studying towards her certificate in Exotic Medicine and Surgery, and works alongside Jeremy to care for our zoological clientele.

American Kate joined the team after completing her studies at the University of Edinburgh. Having visited the practice during her degree as part of her Extra Mural Studies, Kate loved us so much she wanted to come back and work with us! Kate has interests in ophthalmology, cardiology and exotics/wildlife. She hopes to develop her knowledge at BHVS with a view to going on to an internship or further study. Kate enjoys hiking, cycling and karate in her spare time, as well as caring for a variety of pot plants as she is unable to have pets at present! We are pleased to report her plant nurturing skills are as good as her animal care!

He has a keen interest in emergency and critical care, cardiology and exotics medicine. Colin enjoys playing squash and badminton, as well as being an avid traveller - he hopes to spend the next year exploring as much of the area as possible!

Iona first came to Burnham House in Summer of 2019, she is originally from North Kent but has always loved to be by the sea! During her time at the Royal Veterinary College, Iona took on a broad range of studies and hopes to continue to develop her skills in all areas of veterinary medicine. She is an excellent baker and her personal goal for the year is to swim (or paddle!) in as many local beaches as she can visit!
