Our Team

Our practice is built upon our loyal and passionate team - all dedicated to providing the very best care for you and your pets.


Dr Kyle Eadie

Veterinary Surgeon and Practice Owner


Kyle was born and raised in Suffolk. He studied at Nottingham University, where he and Laurie met and lived together for 5 years (it’s surprising they still get along!). Kyle worked as a veterinary surgeon and then as the joint clinical director of a local corporate practice before setting up The Woodbridge Vets.

Kyle has special interests in ultrasound imaging and cardiology, and he will continue to take referrals for these cases at The Woodbridge Vets.

In his spare time Kyle is a keen golfer and DIY enthusiast. He lives with his Partner Sophie and their cat Tiggy.


Dr Laurie Barrow

Veterinary Surgeon and Practice Owner


Laurie grew up in Oxfordshire. He initially studied zoology at Durham University before moving to Nottingham where he and Kyle met. Laurie worked in Leicestershire before moving to Suffolk to join Kyle as the clinical director of a local corporate practice. They then set up The Woodbridge Vets together in April 2022.

Laurie’s special interests are in consulting and surgery. He has pioneered the use of local anaesthetics to allow safer operations and has also introduced keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery to the area. The Woodbridge Vets now takes referrals for keyhole spays, among other procedures. Laurie holds a certificate in Advanced Veterinary Consulting, meaning he has undertaken training to develop this skill further.

At home Laurie is kept busy by his three dogs (two spaniels and a Labrador), and his fiancée’s two horses. He is a keen mechanic and is currently restoring his father’s old car, as well as trying to fix his forever-broken Land Rover.


Mark Etheridge

His research has taken him to Mongolia to study birds of prey and to Namibia to study Cheetahs in the wild. He also worked in Arizona, getting up-close experience working with rescued exotic species such as reptiles, racoons and even tigers and wolves!

Outside work Mark loves getting out and about on long walks with his rescue collie Harry, taking photos of the local scenery or just relaxing in front of a good movie.

Gemma Cannell

Client Care

Gemma joined the team back in 2022 and has been trying to escape writing her bio ever since (she managed almost a year!!), she would tell you there is nothing to say… In fact however, Gemma is a another Suffolk local having grown up here and she has NVQ level 1 & 2 in Animal Care. She has previous experience in a vet practice as well as working in a high-end pet store for a number of years where she also manged to study animal nutrition, though she thinks her knowledge may be a bit rusty now! Whilst she doesn't currently have any pets (she has had rabbits and a dog in the past), she is kept more than busy enough with her 3 young sons, so much so that she's not sure what "free time" is anymore!


Iveta Rosenkrancova

Client Care

Iveta joined us in 2023, slotting straight into our client care team. Her background is in dental clinic work where she spent over 10 years honing her excellent customer service skills as a nurse and treatment coordinator. She also has Business and Administration role experience, recently earning her IOA Business & Administration Level 2 and IOA Team skills & Leadership Level 2 qualifications.

Iveta loves animals but especially dogs, and in her spare time she enjoys looking after and generally just spoiling her English Bulldog, Lenny. Iveta is equally happy spending time out in the countryside or being tucked up in front of the fire with Lenny, a book and a cup of tea!


Lauren Dorling

Registered Veterinary Nurse

Lauren spent 6 years working really hard in first opinion practice building her skills and knowledge to go on and qualify as a veterinary nurse from the Central College of Animal Studies in 2022. Since qualifying she finds nursing the patients which need to stay with us for the day, typically those with more complicated medical needs, the most rewarding.

She is also really keen to keep progressing her understanding and skills surrounding anaesthesia skills. At the end of the day she is greeted at home by Tabby, her rescue cat and Poppy, her springer spaniel who loves to join her for a long walk or even a good run!
