Our Vets & Nurses
Mark holds the RCVS Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice in the field of Zoological Medicine and has experience treating over 200 species of birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and exotic mammals. In 2014 he was awarded the RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Zoological Medicine Status. Kyle graduated from the University of Pretoria in South Africa in 2006 with a BVSc in veterinary medicine and holds the GPCert(ExAp). Kyle has been in the UK since 2011, before that he spent time in Dubai and South Africa working in practices that treated mainly exotic species.

Mark and Kyle are members of the British Veterinary Zoological Society and pursue an active continuing education programme to keep up to date with modern treatment developments and current best practice.

They are supported by our team of keen and skilled exotics nurses including Becca, Leeanne and Diana who all hold further exotic nursing qualifications.
 

Hospitalisation
At both Strensall and Stamford Bridge we have hospitalisation and medical treatment facilities to assist in the road to recovery of your animal. These include thermostatically controlled vivaria, nebulisation and dietary provision appropriate to the species treated - all in a minimal stress environment.
 

Diagnostics
Because exotic species often show non specific signs of illness, other methods are often necessary to diagnose and treat them. At Battle Flatts, we have facilities to perform x-rays , ultrasound scans and we utilise small videoendoscopic cameras  to view and take samples from the internal organs of mammals, bird, reptiles and even fish!
 

Anaesthesia & Surgery
Because of their small size and very different requirements to dogs and cats, special equipment and expertise is required to safely anaesthetise and perform surgery on exotics. With extensive cross species experience, exotic nursing qualified staff, modern equipment including Vetronic ventilators and two vets further trained in exotic anaesthesia and surgery, we believe in the quality of service that we provide.
