Laura Bateman BVMedSci (Hons) BVM BVS MRCVS

Hi, my name is Laura and I am a Partner at Larkmead as well as a Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon. I graduated in 2014 from the University of Nottingham’s School of Veterinary Medicine and Science, and then joined Larkmead the same year. I became partner at Larkmead in January 2021 and have a particular interest in soft tissue surgery. I am passionate about consistently developing my knowledge and skills so am currently studying towards a surgical certificate. Many people think of small animals as cats and dogs in our profession, but I am really proud to also be an experienced rabbit vet!

Surgery is the most enjoyable part of my job as its my area of interest and helps me to develop as a surgeon. Naturally, there are sometimes really challenging cases, but nothing beats giving a client good news about their pet’s surgery and making such a huge difference to a client and their pet’s life.

At home I have a dog, called Daphne, and love spending my spare time hiking with her. As well as this, I enjoy creating art.
