Lizzy Bell-Thomas BA VetMB MRCVS
Hi, I’m Lizzy! When I graduated from Cambridge in 2020, I joined Larkmead as a Small Animal Vet, so have been here my entire career so far.
I am particularly interested in surgery, and am studying for an RCVS Certificate in Small Animal Surgery. I also love building a relationship with the same pet and client over time, getting to know their quirks, and seeing good outcomes when managing their health problems. This part of the job is so rewarding but I can’t forget the other wonderful aspects such as the huge variety of general practice; from routine surgery to more complex operations, managing longer term medical cases, helping a beloved pet leave our lives with dignity, or welcoming a new puppy or kitten into the family.
At home my husband and I have three guinea pigs: Ruby, who I rescued when she was pregnant, her friend Delphi, and our newest addition is a neutered boar called Oberon, who was found abandoned in a shoebox! They are my world and enjoy popcorning around their large garden run in summer.
When not spending time with animals at home or work, I enjoy gardening, outdoor swimming, curling up with a coffee and a good book, walking/hiking with family, yoga and painting – I also do pet portraits in oil paints during my spare time.
