Sarah Sheppard
Clinical Director
Donnachie and Townley Vets

Sarah graduated from the University of Bristol in 2009 having completed an intercalated degree in Pharmacology alongside her Veterinary degree. Sarah has a particular interest in small animal medicine and pain management and is a practicing member of the Association of British Veterinary Acupuncturists. Sarah joined Donnachie and Townley vets in the summer of 2009 as a mixed Veterinary Surgeon and in 2011 decided to focus on small animal work only. She became Clinical Director of the practice in 2019 and has overseen the change of the practice to a dedicated small animal practice only and development of a new branch practice. Sarah is passionate about developing the practice and team to a high clinical standard and in the last eighteen months her team have achieved registration of all branches as silver status cat friendly clinics, an award for Best Veterinary practice in Staffordshire 2020 by SME, and are currently working towards Bronze accreditation with Investors in the Environment. Sarah firmly believes that improving sustainability in the practice is not only essential for the long term stability of the environment but, when performed in the right way, also goes hand in hand with clinical quality and improved efficiency.
