Meet The Small Animals Team

The Small Animals team at Bellevue Veterinary Clinic has made the choice to focus on pets, but that includes a wide range of creatures great and small! We treat dogs and cats, rabbits, ferrets and skunks, parrots and budgies not forgetting a variety of reptiles and small furries! Their skill, knowledge and, above all, passion for small animals really is second to none.

Small Animal Manager & Practice Cat Advocate 

Megan Williams BVSc MRCVS 

I graduated from the University of Bristol in July 2012 and worked in a small animal and equine practice in Worcestershire until September 2014. My partner and I then took some time out to travel around New Zealand and Australia before returning at Christmas to the South West.

I started working for Bellevue Veterinary Clinic in January 2015 as a small animal vet. My main areas of interest are medicine and dermatology and in February 2015 I enrolled in the Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (small animal medicine). Outside of work I am a keen horse rider and once I am settled into our new house on the Mendips a new horse won’t be far behind! I also enjoy hiking, ballroom dancing and walking our lovely pointer Tora. I also have a friendly tortoise called Thibaut Tortois who you will see at many Bellevue events.

 

Kamila Galczynska MRCVS

I graduated from the University of Lublin in Poland in 2009 and then went on to complete an internship at the Referral Veterinary Clinic "Bermowo”, followed by practising in a Small Animal practice in Warsaw, where I was able to further develop my surgical skills.

In 2010 I made the decision to move to England to pursue my career in small animal practice, medicine and soft tissue surgery and, after working at another job in the South West, I settled into life at Bellevue Veterinary Clinic in July 2013, where I have enjoyed working for the practice while meeting a lot of amazing friends, clients and their pets. I am currently studying for my surgical certificate and have a particular interest in soft tissue surgery.

Since settling in England with my partner Lee, we have expanded our family, which now includes Amy, a mad boxer and Leonard, Bernadette and Penny, 3 adopted cats we homed. In my spare time, I enjoy riding my two horses Hostessa and Hope who came with us from Poland.

Helen Dyson MRCVS

I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in July 2000.  I then completed a one year equine internship at the Animal Health Trust, Newmarket.  I then worked in mixed practice in Hertfordshire and then in Yorkshire.  I started working in a small animal hospital in the north in 2011 and then relocated to the south west in 2016.  I have two daughters Tallulah (7) and Amelia (3), we enjoy being outdoors and riding Tinkerbelle the pony.
