Done & Stevens Veterinary Surgeons have been in St.Ives since 1991 but there was a veterinary practice at the Station Road premises for many years before then. It used to be a mixed practice but after the decline in livestock farming this changed to 100% companion animals in 1997. Up to 80 cases a day are seen in St Ives and up to forty at the Brampton branch. David has lived in Cambridgeshire on and off since 1969. After graduating as a parasitologist he spent three years working for Voluntary Service Overseas in Sarawak, East Malaysia (Borneo) helping to set up a Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory and carrying out disease surveys. Working alongside veterinary surgeons made him realise this was where his future lay. He was accepted into Cambridge University Veterinary School and qualified in 1986. His first job was in a mixed practice on Romney Marsh in Kent and when a vacancy occurred in St.Ives he applied, becoming a partner in 1989. His leisure interests are travel, walking, natural history, photography and occasional windsurfing.
