Robert Thurlow

Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated in 1983 from the Royal Veterinary College and started my working life at a mixed practice in Kelso in the Scottish Borders. After a brief return south, to Oxfordshire and then South Devon, I moved back to Scotland in 1986 having bought a small mixed practice in Dumfries. Between 1986 and when I sold the practice in 2015 I found my caseload steadily changing from 90% farm work to 90% companion animal and selling the practice allowed me to more actively pursue my interest in that field, firstly as a solely companion animal Vet for the purchasers of my practice, and then as part of the team at a Veterinary Hospital in West Lothian.

I have always been a “General Practitioner” and thoroughly enjoy meeting and working with clients and their pets! My interests lie in both medicine and surgery; and Millennium Veterinary Practice offers me the opportunity to follow both of these interests as part of an extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic team.

Outside of the Veterinary world I have been a rugby player, rugby referee, veteran 100m & 200m runner and javelin thrower. I am fascinated by history and natural history. Much of my time is spent playing viola and occasionally violin with several orchestras and chamber groups. More recently I have been spending more time with my family – I now have grandchildren in Braintree and Cambridge and it is lovely to be close by to watch them grow!
