Kyle Perrin, BVSc MRCVS
Kyle graduated from the University of Pretoria in South Africa in 2006 with a BVSc in veterinary medicine. Kyle has been in the UK since 2011, before that he spent time in Dubai and South Africa working in practices that treated mainly exotic species. He joins us to assist Mark with the treatment of our expanding exotic animal client base and to run our branch surgery in Strensall. His interests outside of work are mainly out door activities including hiking, camping, diving and birding. Since moving to the UK he has been able to enjoy all these activities, in all kinds of weather. Except the diving, the water is too cold for him. He have always been interested in falconry and has tried, where and when, possible to be involved and learn as much as possible from other falconers in South Africa, Dubai and the UK.
Mark Naguib, BVMS(Hons) CertAVP(ZooMed) MRCVS
Mark qualified from Glasgow in 2009 and joined Battle Flatts a year later, based at our Stamford Bridge surgery. As well as treating dogs and cats, he has a keen interest in "exotic" animals. Mark holds the RCVS Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice in the field of Zoological Medicine and has experience treating over 200 species of birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and exotic mammals. In 2014 he was awarded the RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Zoological Medicine Status. This status is awarded to vets who have not only undertaken further study and passed exams in a particular area of veterinary work (in Mark’s case reptiles, birds and other so-called ‘exotic’ animals), but have also confirmed that they continue keep up to date with all the latest developments in their field.
