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

Practice Manager

Mark was born and raised in Suffolk, his keen interest in nature led him to study Ecology and Conservation at Aberystwyth University. 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.
