  • Leslie McDonald
    Practice Manager

    Her responsibilities are mainly office work but she does have to help out the other staff when too much happens at once. She has been working in veterinary practice since 1978 and you should ring her with any queries about the practice policies or suggestions you may have. Leslie lives close by and is often called in to help with emergency surgery in the middle of the night. She has developed a very close relationship with chocolate Labradors.
