Heather Covey


Internal Medicine Diplomate

Heather graduated from Cambridge Veterinary School in 2007. After several years in small animal practice in the Peak District, she embarked on a round-the-world sailing race, followed by a year in mixed practice in New Zealand. On returning to the UK, Heather completed an internship and then a residency in Small Animal Internal Medicine at the Royal Veterinary College. She joined the Animal Health Trust immediately afterwards, working there for two and a half years as an Internal Medicine and Medical Oncology specialist, before joining The Ralph in May 2020. She is interested in all aspects of medicine, especially in interventional procedures and hepatology.

Heather lives in the countryside on her family farm, with her husband Rob and one-eyed springer spaniel, Rhum. She loves hiking, sailing, skiing and canoeing and can be found most days in the garden, encouraging her vegetables to grow. 

Heather is currently on maternity leave, returning late 2021.
