Vets

        • Jon Diment BVSc (Hons) MRCVS

          IMG_0287

          I qualified in 1988 from Liverpool Vet School. I’ve spent most of my career working in mixed, mainly small animal and dairy practices in the UK, apart from 3½ years working in predominantly dairy practice in New Zealand.  I’ve been working at Bredy Vets since 2001 and I’m a director. I have diverse interests which include many aspects of pet and cattle medicine and surgery, cattle husbandry and improving client and patient care.  The great interest of veterinary work is the constant change.  Animal husbandry and health continues to evolve and this requires constant changes in approach and methods.
