Chris Beck  - Veterinary Surgeon
Chris Beck BVMS MRCVS Veterinary Surgeon

Chris originates from the Lakes, and lived locally until heading off to Glasgow to study veterinary medicine, from where he graduated in 2013. He started his veterinary career working for a mixed practice over in the North East, where he decided that his interest lies firmly in the small animal side of veterinary practice.

Despite the stunning beaches and (slightly!) drier climate, the lure of the Lake District brought Chris back home, where he took a part-time post in the Westmorland small animal team in 2015, and hasn’t looked back since – even convincing his wife, Rebecca Barr, to come work here as well!

When he’s not at work, Chris has been very patiently renovating his and Becca’s house whilst occasionally fitting in some cycling, squash and playing the odd round of golf, though all of these have taken a back seat somewhat since the arrival of his baby daughter, Zoe. Any other spare time is normally taken up juggling parenting responsibilities alongside managing their menagerie of animals - currently two Collies, a Labrador, and a Beagle… who causes more chaos than all the others combined, including Zoe!
