Claire Royall BVSc MRCVS Associate Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from The University of Bristol in 2008 with a degree in Veterinary Science. My first job was at a small animal practice in Worcestershire where I spent three years. I then took some time out to go travelling. After returning to the UK, I worked as a locum at a number of small animal practices. I have now returned to my home town of Wokingham and I started working at Shinfield Vets in 2014.

Clinically my main interest is soft tissue surgery. Soft tissue surgery includes neutering, removing lumps and exploring the abdomen to aid diagnosis of disease, or to remove objects which shouldn’t have been swallowed (eg stones and socks). I also enjoy treating small mammals (such as rabbits and guinea pigs) and dental treatments for cats and dogs, which includes cleaning teeth, to keep them healthy and removing them if they are rotten.

Outside work, my interests include travelling, photography, horse riding and swimming.
