Gerard Winnard heads the small animal team at Westmorland. He grew up near the market town of Settle and both his parents were teachers in Clitheroe.
Growing up they always had lots of pets and he spent time working on local farms and realised from an early age that being a vet was what he really wanted to do.
His dream became a reality when he qualified in 1991 and eventually settled in Kendal when he got a job here at Westmorland. "I feel privileged to be working in such a beautiful area and I am passionate about caring for pets. I strive to provide the kind of service I would want for my own animals and it's great to work with a team who thinks the same way".
