We are a small animal practice in Studley, first established in 1989. We are passionate about animals and our skilled team of vet surgeons and nurses are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your animals. Because we love animals and strive to provide excellent continuity of care, we are open six days a week and have access to 24-hour emergency care. We also offer free parking for clients at the surgery.
Catherine is our practice manager, she started working as a receptionist in 2014 for two years and after a short career change was asked if she would like to return as Acorn’s practice manager. She holds the level three management and team leadership City & Guilds certificate. Catherine enjoys the variety her role brings and particularly values working with such a great team and finds the customer service aspect of her job very fulfilling. She is kept busy with three children and a Hungarian Vizsla called Lola. When she gets time, Catherine enjoys playing the piano and painting.
Tracy is one of our receptionists and has been with Acorn since September 2003.

Tracy enjoys providing admin support to our practice manager and has a keen interest in running and maintaining our Healthy Pet Club. In her spare time Tracy enjoys spending time with her two daughters. Her hobbies include knitting, cross stitch and dancing.
