Visiting Vets


Jean-Benoit Lefebvre, MRCVS, DipECVS

Board Certified Specialist (Surgery)

Jean-Benoit (also known as “JB”) is our visiting surgeon for our more complex surgical cases. He qualified from Liege in Belgium in 2002 and trained further with a residency at Cambridge Vet School from 2005 to 2008. He obtained his European Diploma in Surgery in February 2009.

JB’s specialist skills allow Werrington Vets to offer referral consultations and surgery for complicated cases within WV’s practice. This means that you will not have to travel to another hospital and that your vet will remain directly involved throughout your pet’s treatment. JB is able to perform a number of surgeries including cruciate ligament repair, elbow arthroscopy/surgery, luxating patella repair, total hip replacement as well as complex soft tissue surgeries.



Board Certified Specialist (Imaging)

Paddy qualified from Glasgow in 1989 having wanted to be a vet since she was 4.

Paddy has two dogs – Norman a gorgeous Norfolk Terrier who’s a bit low to the ground and Dorcas a delightful Springer Spaniel with rubbish elbows. She has two cats Camilla and Madge Mae who are red tabbies.

Paddy will be able to visit us and perform an ultrasound scan when we have a challenging case. She is also able to remotely assess and send detailed reports on x-rays. Paddy has her own little practice in Cambridge where she can perform CT scans.
