Emergency Veterinary Hospital Open 24 Hours a Day


Pippa Dean

Training Supervisor
Pippa studied Zoology at The University of Derby and graduated specializing in animal behaviour. Since her degree, she has worked as a Wildlife Rehabilitator and as an Ecologist. Her love for wildlife, and photography brought her to the island last year from Wales, UK. She began working with us to fulfil her other love for veterinary medicine. Outside of the clinic, she can be found looking out for whales at the beach and kayaking/hiking with her faithful companion, Moss the springer spaniel.
