Dr Thomas Vowell
Dr Thomas Vowell BVSc (Hons), BSc, MAppSc (Wildlife Health) Veterinary Surgeon

Tom graduated from The University of Sydney (Australia) in 2015. Before moving to Sheffield and joining the Ark team earlier this year, he worked in a semi-rural mixed practice in Sydney, where he particularly enjoyed working with exotic animals and wildlife. He has had a passion for exotic animals from a young age, and has kept all kinds of pets - bearded dragons, geckos, snakes, tropical fish, axolotls, budgies, cockatiels and rabbits, in addition to some much loved dogs and cats.

Before studying to be a vet, he studied Biodiversity and Conservation at University, and did a Masters degree in Wildlife Health.

His favourite aspect of the job is working with our large exotic caseload; especially being in theatre and performing routine or emergency surgery on lots of weird and wonderful species.

When he is not working, Tom likes playing touch football, woodworking and spending time with his wife and young son. He is really looking forward to doing some more travelling throughout the UK and Europe.
