Who’s Coming?

Patrick Ridge

Patrick Ridge (BVSc, Cert VR, Cert SAS, MRCVS, RCVS) is a veterinary surgeon and Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Surgery. Patrick runs the Ridge Referrals team, specialists in small animal orthopaedics and arthroscopy.

We are delighted to confirm that Patrick will be attending Woofstock UK 2021 for the third time. To be honest, his attendance was never in any doubt as Harry refused to have it any other way. Patrick fixed Harry back in 2016 and needless to say, Harry fell in love with him, refusing to leave the practice and insisting Patrick carried him to the car!

This is testament to the connection Patrick has with animals. Dr Dolittle, eat your heart out!

referral to Patrick Ridge. Harry often refuses to leave Ross even after

working as a mixed vet at Dart Vale in 2014. In 2016 Ross went travelling in
Australia, New Zealand, USA and Canada returning to Dart Vale 9 months

practice are first opinion consultations.
