Chris Butterworth

Chris graduated from the University of Nottingham in July 2016. He started his veterinary career as an intern with sister practice Westpoint Ashbourne in Derbyshire before moving down to Shepton Mallet to join with Candi and Dave.

Chris enjoys all aspects of farm animal work but is particularly interested in Herd/Flock Health analysis and planning – he seeks to encourage the notion that prevention is always better than cure! 

In his spare time he is a keen sports fan, particularly regarding his beloved Derby County.
