A little about our founder…

Dr. Andrew Henfrey – our founder

When I was 9 years old I lost my cat when she was run over. This gave me an interest in things veterinary and like many of my generation I read and watched James Herriot on TV avidly. I was lucky enough to have a great local vet who encouraged me to apply to the Royal (Dick) Vet College at Edinburgh University. I pursued my academic studies after a year in general practice following graduation and gained a PhD in Immunology, which is still relevant today with allergies, vaccines, and inflammatory diseases being such a large part of our practice.

I came to the NorthEast with my wife and after being a partner in a large 3 branch practice, together we setup and developed Dragon Veterinary Centre as a single site practice in 2005. This means clients are usually able to see the same vet and develop a proper bond of trust.

After 21 years at the same site I have many clients that I have treated several generations of their animals and look forward to seeing them with their current and future pets.

  • What an amazing group of people. Really caring and always fully knowledgable about the health of my two dogs. I love my dogs so much that their care is important to me and I am confident that the team at Dragon Vets have my pets interests at the heart of the work they do.

  • I cannot thank the team enough at Dragon Vets for taking such good care of Wilma when she was poorly. The staff were amazing throughout and the vets knew exactly what she needed. Keep up the great work.
