The same exemplary standards of care as our main RCVS accredited hospital but closer to home

SunningdaleReceptionboxAt our Sunningdale Practice (on Chobham Road), we work hard to bring you some exceptional care that’s really focused on ensuring your pet is looked after. We are a small practice, but we are confident that we can deliver the kind of health care for your pet that gives them all round protection and preventative support.

We work alongside the main hospital at Runnymede, and that means that we are in a unique position in the local area. You probably know that Runnymede was one of the first hospitals to be given accreditation by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons? We work closely with them, so you get the benefit of a small and friendly practice with us, and access to a cutting edge hospital with Runnymede.

This means that your pet can be transferred quickly if further investigation is required regarding the complaint, or a surgery-based intervention is needed. We share all records with Runnymede, so we have all the information we need on your pet and their requirements if we need to refer them quickly to the hospital.

If we were to describe the experience here at Sunningdale, we would simply say that you have a friendly, small local team that is committed to the health and welfare of your pet.

Meet the Team

Andy Wyles BVM&S MRCVS Clinical Manager

I qualified from Glasgow Vet School in 1996 and after positions in mixed practice in Suffolk, Yorkshire and South Africa I came to Pets 1st in 2003. I am passionate about the variety of cases we see and enjoy all aspects of medicine and surgery. The 24hr service and the high level of equipment we hold means we can offer our patients the best of care onsite, around the clock. I perform acupuncture regularly to our chronic pain cases and enjoy cytology (looking at samples under the microscope).
I have 2 young children at Manorcroft Primary School where I regularly get roped in to do doing school talks. I live in Egham with my wife Charley (vet nurse) and own cats and keep some backyard chickens who keep us in good supplies of fresh eggs. If time permits I can usually be found running in Windsor Great Park or struggling round a golf course –I’m always open to a challenge from golfing clients!

Olivia Grellier VetMB MA MRCVS

Having qualified from Cambridge Vet School in June 2012, I spent some time volunteering at a dog shelter in Sri Lanka, before settling into a busy small animal practice in South-West London. After 2 years I wanted to gain more experience working in a hospital practice and am very happy and excited to have joined the team here at Runnymede.
I enjoy all aspects of my job, with a particular interest in medicine, and I love the variety that working in this profession brings.
In my spare time I enjoy skiing, rowing, baking, and spending time outdoors.

Having just completed a certificate in small animal surgery. wanted to gain more experience working in a hospital practice. I enjoy all aspects of my job, with a particular interest in soft tissue surgery when not at work I can usually be found out riding and competing my Horse Mr Darcey or out walking with my 2 dogs

Dr David McCormick PhD MRCVS Deputy Clinical Manager

Born and brought up in Scotland, I have been a local resident in Egham and Englefield Green since 1998. Having previously worked at the practice for 10 years, I have recently returned to the fold following a period of work with the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (DEFRA). Early on in my career I completed a PhD in Immunology, and retain a clinical interest in the field as it relates to small animal medicine.
Over a longer period in clinical practice I have developed and strengthened my orthopaedic knowledge and enjoy the challenges and rewards with this field.
I have two children and one guinea pig (soon to be two!) and have been a member of Egham Choral Society for 6 years: I like to sing! I still consider myself able to play football, but fear that age is catching up with me!
I look forward to seeing you at the practice.

Kelly Wilkins RVN Branch Manager

I have been nursing since 1998 where I trained in a practice close to my home growing up.
Since qualifying in 2002 I have been in various practices working on my clinical skills and knowledge.
I worked at Pets First Runnymede until 2008 then had a dabble in some emergency work which lead to many years Head Nursing in a practice in Staines. The College of animal welfare recruited me for teaching the next generation of nurses practical skills and preparing them for their exams.
Having moved to Bracknell and having a little girl I have returned to Pets First. Now you will see me at Sunningdale taking care of yours and your pets needs.
At home I have two cats, Maggie who I hand reared and rehomed from Runnymede back in 2008 and the newest edition is Lady Sif (the husband named her!) who we rescued in 2014.
I’m looking forward to meeting all of the lovely Sunningdale clients and their beloved pets.
