Position: Veterinary Surgeon
I graduated from Bristol in 1978 and have been in practice since then. After several years in mixed practice the toll on my body meant I decided to downsize to small animal practice. I have 2 grown up daughters and 2 gorgeous chocolate labradors - I even breed the odd litter and so am always happy to advise on any breeding issues. In my spare time I take ’Dora,’ the youngest Labrador, to gundog training classes and also used to ride regularly until the bones became too fragile!

I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 2004 and worked in mixed practice in Lincolnshire for a year before joining the Barn Veterinary Practice in 2005. I am interested in all aspect of small animal medicine and surgery. Outside of work I am a school governor and enjoy dress making and outdoor persuits. I have a rescue cat called Sweetcorn and a Jack Russell called Henry.

Position: Veterinary Surgeon
After qualifying from the Royal Veterinary College, London I came to work at the Barn Veterinary practice straight away and have been here ever since. I have had a close connection with the Barn for a number of years, working here on a Saturday before training to be a vet. I enjoy working with all species but spend a lot of time increasing our equine case-load. Whilst at the practice I enjoy soft tissue surgery. At home I enjoy most countryside activities, walking, clay shooting etc. I currently have a Bloodhound, ’Reading’ who is quite a handful!

I graduated from Bristol University in 2017, after completing an externship at Liphook Equine Hospital. I have an interest in small animal surgery and equine medicine. Outside of work I am a keen runner, horse rider and baker. To combine my love of travel and enthusiasm for surgery I go on yearly excursions for a small neutering charity, ’Spay Sisters.’

Grayling Marsh MRCVSGrayling Marsh MRCVS
Position: Veterinary Surgeon
I graduated from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, Edinburgh, in 2018 and I am delighted to be back in Suffolk, where I was born and bred, and working at The Barn! I enjoy the variety of a mixed practice and I have a special interest in equine medicine (I was fortunate to win the “Best Equine Student” prize at Edinburgh). I hope to be able to contribute to developing the equine services that we can offer whilst playing a full part in the small animal work. I keep myself fit by playing squash and surfing but mostly by taking my black Labrador, Lachlan, on long walks.
