Henrietta graduated in 2017 from Glasgow and after a 2 year spell in the North East of England, she came to Capontree in 2019.
Henrietta has a particular interest in large animal work, especially preventative health schemes with both sheep and cattle, but also likes to keep up-to-date with smaller animals and can be seen consulting at our Brampton branch.
In her spare time, Henrietta enjoys taking her Border Terrier Haggis for a walk or heading out for a ride on her horse.

Daisy joined our large animal vet team in December 2019. After graduating in 2017 Daisy is freshly returned to the UK from a spell working in large animal practice in New Zealand. Daisy will predominantly be working with farm animals from our Longtown branch. Away from work Daisy enjoys keeping fit with walking, crossfit and running.
Heather Robinson BVSc MRCVS
Heather joined our team in February 2020 after a spell in first opinion practice in the Southern Lake District. She will be focusing mainly on small animal work at our Brampton and Haltwhistle practices, but may also be seen working with horses and at the occasional lambing.

Sam joined our team at the beginning of September 2020, graduating in the Covid-Class of that summer. He spent a spell seeing practice with us so will already be a familiar face on some farms.
