Meet The team

Janine Redman MRCVS

Janine Redman qualified way back in 1989 from the Royal Veterinary College. Her very first job was at (the then) Cook and Wilson in New Milton and Pennington as a mixed practice veterinary surgeon. No computers, basic mobile phones the size of a car battery and just four vets. Apart from a few years in the 1990`s when she worked in Surrey she has lived and worked in the New Forest which she loves.
She decided to set up on her own to provide first opinion veterinary care to the local community rather than fully retire and hope to offer routine veterinary care in a small friendly environment where many of her patients, and their owners, will benefit from a more relaxed environment. Her passion is both in behaviour and training as well as canine fitness and conditioning, including rehabilitation from injury.
Her aim is to provide a local veterinary service, to partner with clients in the care for their animals and to be able to provide her expertise in routine medical and surgical care. She hopes to able to offer assistance with canine training issues and behavioural problems in the future with a plan to develop a canine fitness and conditioning program as well.
