Dr Ian Lowe BVetMed, GPCert (ExAP), PgC (EAS), MRCVS Clinical Director

Consultant in Exotic Animal Medicine and Surgery

RCVS Recognised Advanced Practitioner in Zoological Medicine


Ian graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2004. He became a practice partner in October 2009 after working at Ark for 18 months, and has since taken over sole ownership of the business.

He has a special interest in the care of exotic pets, wildlife and zoo collections. He completed a European certificate in exotic animal practice and a PgC in exotic animal studies, in order to keep up to date with modern treatment developments and current best practice. This enables him to treat lots of weird and wonderful creatures - from reptiles and amphibians, to marmoset monkeys and meerkats. Ian not only deals with first opinion exotic cases but accepts referrals from other veterinary practices throughout the UK.

In 2018, he was recognised nationally and nominated for his dedication to working with exotics in veterinary practice.

During his free time, Ian enjoys all outdoor sports, going to the gym, cooking and DIY. Alongside looking after his collection of poultry and two energetic Border Terriers - Leaf and Twiggy.
