Patrick von Heimendahl BVSc MRCVS

Principle vet and owner

Patrick qualified as a veterinary surgeon from The University of Berlin in 1992 and has been working in small animal practices in the UK ever since. He spent time working in Norfolk and Northumberland before moving and settling in Cambridge. In 1998 he took over the clinic from Clive Jordan and ran the clinic on his own until the Spring of 2018 when he was joined by his niece, Harriet. He has a passion for wildlife and conservation and has recently completed his Masters in Conservation with the University of East Anglia.

He is also the patron of an animal charity based in Tangier, Morocco, which aims to rescue and treat wildlife and domestic animal in North Africa.

He lives at home with his wife Charlotte and their dogs, Dudley and Toast and Wolfie the cat, another one of Samba’s kittens.
