Luciano Nebiante – certificate holder – MRCVS PGCertSAS
Luciano graduated from the University of Naples in Italy and moved to the UK in 2009. He has worked in a variety of roles across England from East Yorkshire to Essex.
Luciano has a keen interest in surgery and was awarded a Post-Graduate Certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2016. His other main interests are emergency/critical care and minimally invasive techniques like endoscopy (procedures or tests carried out with a small camera).
Outside of work he dedicates all of his time to his son and to a very special disabled Dachshund who when not suffering from selective hearing responds to the name Hector. In his spare time he enjoys many sports and loves the great outdoors. Therefore you may find him wandering, but not lost, in the British Countryside. Luciano looks forward to dedicating his heart and skills to you and your beloved pet.
I Studied in Italy and qualified in 2013. I have been here in the UK since 2015, spending most of this time working in London.
I just recently moved to the green countryside of Lincolnshire and joined South Lincs Vet Group in February 2018. My passion is surgery and my hobbies are cooking, sport and going on long walks in the countryside and being with nature.
I graduated from Cambridge Vet School in 2013, since then I have worked in Holbeach as a small animal vet.
I enjoy surgery and ophthalmology so hope that with the support of the certificate holders at Sutterton Hospital I can continue to progress these fields.
Although my husband and I have no pets of our own, we foster for charity so our home is never empty.
David Feldmar qualified in 1994 and has been in 1st opinion Cat & Dog practice ever since.
Before, in 2010, opening Terrington Veterinary Centre in Norfolk he worked in South Lincolnshire for 6 years at a franchise style practice so has been local to this area for many years now. He set up Sutterton in 2014 and has invested heavily in the main hospital and the surrounding clinics to make them in to the group they are today.
Before moving up this way, he has been involved in both “out of hours” provision only work for some years and before that in general small animal practice in several clinics in the South east of England. This has given him a broad general small animal based knowledge both clinically and surgically, whilst the time as a franchise branch partner served to give him a better perspective on the running of his own practices.
He has always been keen on sport having particularly liked golf and American Football in the past. Now having reached his 40’s he is still a keen health and fitness fanatic regularly attending the gym, though staying away from the contact sports.
In 2015 he got married to IIona and now lives happily with his wife, son and two dogs.
My name is Daniel, I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 2013, since then I have worked in a variety of small animal practices, ranging from Wales to Hertfordshire.
I have a keen interest in internal medicine and am currently studying towards my certificate in small animal medicine.
I graduated from Liverpool University 2007, and my career since then has been extremely varied, involving everything from marine mammals and farm work to horses and small animals. It certainly hasn’t been dull!
My special interests include exotics of the small furry variety (as you can probably tell from the photo), and I share my home with a mischief of rescue rats. Although I don’t have any specialist qualifications in the subject I do have a lot of experience both keeping and treating small exotic mammals.
I’m also a consultant for Rat Guide, a site commonly used by vets and rat owners providing researched, validated medical advice for this species.
I have a postgraduate certificate in Veterinary Forensics and Law, and run my own business and consultancy service relating to situations involving animals and the law. To find out more about this aspect of my work take a look at www.saphiniavetforensics.co.uk.
I’m excited to be joining the team here at Sutterton!
When I’m not working or spending time with the RatPack I swap my scrubs for dance shoes and can often be found dancing salsa, cha cha or Argentine tango!

Growing up I have been surrounded by a variety of animals such as cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, rabbits and hamsters.
I have always loved wildlife and ever since I was a child I have taken on birds for rehabilitation to then hopefully release back into the wild. I have also helped an injured hedgehog that I found in my garden which had wire around its body. We removed the wire at Sutterton Veterinary Hospital then rehabilitated the hedgehog at home until fit and healthy, I then released him back into the garden where he thrived.
I studied at Riseholme college for 3 years where I achieved a BTEC in Animal Care and Animal Management.
Unfortunately I didn’t have the chance to pursue my dream of working with animals so I went into human care. I worked for 10 years with the elderly with dementia and residential care.
An opportunity came up for maternity cover at a veterinary practice which is how I managed to get back into animal care. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there so knew I definitely wanted to continue in veterinary nursing.
