David is the partner at our Easthampstead clinic. He graduated from Liverpool University in 2001 and joined Kynoch Vets in 2008. He enjoys all aspects of surgery, particularly orthopaedics and holds a GP Certificate in Small Animal Surgery.
Before choosing to follow a veterinary career, David took a degree in physics. He is married to Vicki and they have three young children and the two most beautiful cats in the world (he claims!).
Phil is working part-time at our Easthampstead surgery. He qualified from Glasgow University in 1983 and has been with Kynoch Vets since 1994. He has a Certificate in small animal Orthopaedics, gained in 1991 and his special interest is in Orthopaedic surgery and spinal surgery.
Phil is married with a grown-up son and daughter. The family pet, “Rosie” is a rescued crossbreed (we refer to her as a Staffrador). Rosie is a great character being gratefully acquired from the local charity “Wokingham Animal Rescue”. In his spare time Phil enjoys dog walking, hill walking and rambling. He also has a keen interest in the martial arts having studied karate since his student days and ju jitsu for the last 15 years. He teaches karate. Phil and a local karate associate have recently opened a new Shotokan karate club at The Pinewood Centre near Crowthorne and Wokingham (please see www.pinewoodkarate.org.uk for details). He also enjoys playing tennis, mountain biking, surfing and a bit of Napoleonic war-gaming on rainy days.
Irina qualified at the University of Iasi, Romania in 2010 and worked in three different small animal practices before coming to the UK.
Internal Medicine, cytology (looking at cells under a microscope), diagnostic imaging (xrays and ultrasound scans) and electrodiagnosis of neuromuscular disorders are among her specific interests.
Outside of work she loves cooking for friends & family, reading and listening to music as well as knitting. (Essentially, any activity that involves chilling with her cat or close friends!). When she’s feeling more energetic, you’ll find her swimming or playing volleyball or tennis.
She is hoping to bring her own rescue cat, Mississippi (‘Mitchu’), currently living with sister in France, to the UK. At the moment she is ‘fostering’ a stray called ‘Jimmy’ that was brought in to our Easthampstead surgery, although it looks like this may be a permanent situation!
