We offer a lifetime of quality care for your         pet.

Matthew Fry BVSc MRCVS

My interest in companion animals led me to start my own Veterinary Surgery with my wife Helen, a Qualified Veterinary Nurse, in 2003. I qualified from Massey University in New Zealand in

1988 and came to the UK in 1992 and have worked in veterinary  practice in Lincolnshire for ten years before setting up Quarrington Veterinary Surgery. Our aim is to provide a quality personal caring service for you and your pets. I was very proud to have been nominated by clients for the Petplan 'Vet of the Year' in 2009 and was in the final three out of over 1000 nominated vets. More recently, in 2013, I was a finalist of the Ceva Chris Lawrence Vet of the Year Award for animal welfare.

Helen Fry VN MBVNA - Director

I am a qualified Veterinary Nurse and set up the practice in 2003 with my husband Matthew. My responsibility as a director is to ensure the smooth running of the practice. I am a member of the Veterinary Practice Managers Association and in 2003 I qualified as a Pet Insurance Advisor. I am also a Forever Business Owner for aloe vera products. I was brought up with dogs and have been involved in showing for many years(including Crufts,) judging and dog rescue. We have two children, Rebecca and Jessica and two Sussex Spaniels, Millie and Kiwi plus two cats Sophie and Daisy.

            Jillian Kerr BVMS MRCVS

I graduated from Glasgow University in 1996. I spent 12 years working in mixed small animal practice in Scotland, including being a partner in my own practice. Unfortunately I had to give this up due to ill health.

Since 2008, I have moved around a little due to my husband's career in the military. We moved to Lincolnshire in August 2015 and I began work at Quarrington Vets. I enjoy the friendly, caring atmosphere that the surgery offers. I work part time for health reasons and although I enjoy all aspects of my work, I spend most of my time consulting where I love meeting new people and their pets.

In my spare time, I am kept busy with my two young sons Brodie and Ruaridh, along with my border collie and newfoundland, Skye and Hudson. We are all enjoying exploring the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside.

We pride ourselves on listening carefully to the needs and wishes of our clients. We strongly believe in your right to choose what is best for both of you and your pet.

We will advise you in respect of recommended treatments, investigations or operations and will keep you informed, as much as possible, regarding the costs involved.

If your pet is very severely injured, or critically ill, we will always consider and advise you on whether a referral to a specialist centre would be beneficial. We will always explain the nature of the injury to you in full and be straightforward, open and honest as to the possible likely outcome

Our Approach: ‘Quality Care for Life’

A Lifetime of Quality Care




Originally from the US, I first moved to the UK to attend vet school at the University of Edinburgh. When I graduated in 2013, I decided to stay on this side of the Atlantic for a couple of years before moving back-this elongated indefinately when I met my husband here, a native of Lincolnshire. I began to work at Quarrington Vets in April 2017, eager to continue to develop my abilities as a general small animal practitioner, though with a particular interest in exotic ( especially avian) medicine.

Together my husband and I work to support our own little menagerie that includes a Jack Russell cross named Jasper, three black and white cats, Nerf, Gizmo and Stitch and four little dinosaur descendants Captain ( an orange-winged amazon ), Stormy ( a cockatiel ) and Corvus and Choir ( a pair of canaries ). Aside from the canaries, all of them have come to us as rescues and some, like Captain, are still learning to be a part of the family.
