Anthony started working for Larwood & Kennedy Vets as the practice director in 2019. He really enjoys being able to work in a position that combines both interacting with clients, building bonds with both pets and their owners and providing good quality care to animals in need. Bringing a loved one to the vets can be a stressful experience and Anthony hopes that he can go some way to alleviating that by providing the best service he can. Anthony was a top three finalist in the Petplan Veterinary Awards in 2014 - an achievement he is very proud of. At home he enjoys walking his dogs, Harley and Corrie, who are a regular feature here at the surgery. A committed vegan, he likes to cook up a storm in the kitchen, providing us with lovely cupcakes from time to time.
