Victoria Vets’ new Vet returns to his roots

Victoria Vets in Glossop and Chapel-en-le-Frith have just welcomed new Veterinary Surgeon Robert Buxton, (27) to the team and it wasn’t a difficult decision!

Robert has loved animals all his life and like so many people who go into the medical profession knew from an early age just what he wanted to do and that was to become a Vet. When Robert was just 11 yrs old his father approached his local practice to see if they would let his son go in and help out, the Vet they spoke to was Rebecca Davies who now owns Victoria Vets and she didn’t hesitate to give the very young Robert some work experience.

Since those promising and very keen early years he went on toCambridgeUniversityto study Veterinary Medicine and following qualification, he secured a position at theRoyalVeterinaryCollege. He then went on to work for the Blue Cross Veterinary College and following that into general practice in Herefordshire before making the move back to the North West.

Rebecca commented on the new appointment, “We were delighted when we heard from Robert; he is a fantastic Vet and a real asset to the practice. We knew from those early years that he would go on to be a success, for someone so young to consider getting work experience showed he had the interest and the determination to follow his ambitions.”

Robert, who has a 2 yr old Springer Spaniel Maisie, is thrilled to be working at the practice he commented “Victoria Vets is a very progressive practice and offers the best of services and very much lives up to the name of ‘The friendly Vets for family pets’. It is a rewarding environment as we have very caring, knowledgeable clients who we can really work with to provide only the very best diagnostic, preventative and veterinary care services for their pets.”

In his spare time, Robert enjoys taking Maisie on long walks in the countryside and hills around Glossop, which he says is perfect for a lively, active dog like a Springer!
