Michael Squires - BVetMed BSc MRCVS

Michael qualified in 1995 and has worked in the Sheffield area since 1996, predominantly for the PDSA. He bought Highfield Veterinary Centre in July 2009. His PDSA years have given him a wealth of experience, and he particularly enjoys orthopaedic surgery.

He is married to Charlotte, a former PDSA head veterinary nurse with two young children, Esme and Oscar (see photo section). The family has a cat named Walter. Walter was abandoned at the PDSA with a nasty leg injury (which eventually healed well in spite of Michael’s treatment). Michael enjoys the outdoors, especially rock climbing and skiing.
