Veterinary surgeon - Mark

Mark Oakley


Mark has worked at Kynoch Vets since 1996. He graduated from Edinburgh University in 1988 and previously worked at the Margate Veterinary Hospital in Kent.
Mark has a Certificate in Small Animal Cardiology, acquired in 1991 whilst working in Kent. This has enabled him to accept internal and external referral cases since 1991. Diagnosing and looking after heart cases is his vocation within a vocation.
In his spare time Mark is an active member of his local Baptist Church. He is married to Ros and they have twin boys, Thomas and Philip who were born in 1994. They have two cats – Sabrina a female Ragdoll, and Leonard (read his story here) both ‘rescued’ due to having a heart murmur,  – perhaps ideally owned by a vet experienced in cardiology! Mark has written a Photobook about his previous cat Chica here.
Mark’s major outside interest is researching late 1960’s to 1970’s Formula One Grand Prix cars, and then scratch building models of these cars in 1/12 scale and writing about / photographing them. You can learn more about it by visiting
