BIRMINGHAM Dogs Home has welcomed a new head vet.

Dr Naomi Bradford has been appointed the head veterinary surgeon at the charity’s Catherine-De-Barnes centre vet clinic.

Naomi, who graduated from Nottingham University Vet School, began her career looking after wildlife in South Africa, Naomi returned to the UK where she continued working in small animal practice before joining Birmingham Dogs Home in 2023.

Naomi said: “I have always had a passion for charity work and as a student, I undertook many placements in rescue centres. Since then, I have always been keen to incorporate this into my work.

“Working at Birmingham Dogs Home has presented me with the chance to care for dogs that don’t yet have families, alongside owned animals.

“I am looking forward to continuing the great work Birmingham Dogs Home and The Vet Clinic do by building a team to provide high-quality care to all our dogs and other owned animals.”

The Vet Clinic is an independent practice owned by Birmingham Dogs Home, a registered charity.

The purpose-built clinic consists of three consulting rooms, separate dog and cat wards, a dental suite, an operating theatre, a laboratory area, and a diagnostic imaging suite.

Fi Harrison, head of fundraising and communications at Birmingham Dogs Home said: “We are thrilled to appoint Naomi as head veterinary surgeon at The Vet Clinic. Her passion and care for animals is inspiring, and we are looking forward to seeing her bring this to the role.

“Running our own veterinary clinic means we can significantly reduce the costs of essential medical care and better manage both emergency cases and the ongoing physical health of dogs on their road to recovery.

“The clinic’s income helps fund the vital life-changing and life-saving work of Birmingham Dogs Home’s rescue centres, which care for over 2,000 abandoned dogs from across the Midlands each year.”

The Vet Clinic at Birmingham Dogs Home is open to the general public and offers a full-service general practice for dogs, cats, and some small animals.
