Erik D’Arcy-Donnelly
Veterinary Surgeon

I was born in Cape Town and completed my schooling , BSc (Zoology and Botany) and BVSc(Veterinary) degrees in South Africa.

I moved to the UK 20 years ago, initially taking a job in Wokingham for 18 months.

Thereafter I travelled throughout Europe,South America and the Far East, before settling and taking a long term position in Caversham,Reading.

I joined the Veterinary Centre in Henley 6 years ago and has the time flown!! - I love it here now as much as I did when i first started...

At work, I have an interest in Reptiles and Ophthalmology and out of work I enjoy culture, the outdoors ( walking, hiking) and socializing with friends.
I have a menagerie of pets 6 dogs ( 3 border terriers, 2 collies and a 17 year old jack russell) , 3 cats and 3 tortoises).

I participate in a lot of Kennel Club activities, being on the veterinary team for Crufts ( at the NEC in Birmingham) and Discover Dogs ( at Earls Court in London). I am also the duty vet at the Windsor, Richmond, Newbury and National Terrier Championship Shows. I am on the committee for the Southern Border Terrier Club, I also breed, show and groom(strip) border terriers
