Adele Wharton

Position: Veterinary Surgeons

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

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!
