Richard Sparrow

Veterinary Surgeon

Richard Sparrow
Richard Sparrow BVSC MRCVS Veterinary Surgeon

Richard graduated from the University of Bristol in 2016 with an intercalated degree in Veterinary Science and Cellular and Molecular Medicine. He worked for a small animal charity near London for several months before joining Penmellyn in March 2017.

Richard is interested in small animal internal medicine but also enjoys small animal surgery and is glad to have the opportunity to explore both of these areas of interest whilst working at Penmellyn.

Richard is new to Cornwall, having recently moved to Hayle, where he lives with his partner (who is also a vet) and their aptly named springer spaniel called Smudge.

You might bump into them out exploring the Cornish countryside or beaches and they’d like to apologise in advance for Smudge covering you in muddy paw prints!

Outside of vetting Richard also enjoys cooking, mountain biking, skiing and plans on making the most of living by the sea by learning to surf.
