Introducing the Butterwick Animal Rehab Team
Get to know the Butterwick Animal Rehab team by clicking on their photos below:
Mark left the Army in 2004 after 13 years and multiple operational tours. He wanted to work with dogs at a young age but wasn’t the opportunities there are now so joined the Army instead.
Mark is a regular lecturer at a number of institutions, University of Nottingham Vet school and Hawksmoor. He started his journey into Canine rehabilitation in 2004 following his dog being diagnosed with severe Hip dysplasia.
Mark is passionate about dogs getting better and living their best life. He oversees the treatment plans for all our patients and is constantly looking for new ways to explain things to mum’s and dad’s, often partial to a good analogy or metaphor and has been known to throw in the odd drawing but it’s fair to say “art” was never his strong point.
He also is very passionate about our staff development and is constantly looking for new ways to enable us to understand dogs and their owners. Mark has over recent years been asked to help train the future generations of Veterinary physiotherapists and hydrotherapists so that they too can help owners.
Mark is the very proud dad to Ben and Harry.
