About us



Because our animals can't tell us how they feel, diagnosis is perhaps the most challenging aspect of veterinary medicine.


When reliance on hands, eyes, and ears alone fails to give us a diagnosis, we'll reach for more sophisticated equipment, or, if necessary, refer you to more specialised care.


You will always get good advice and compassionate treatment from our dedicated team at White House Vets.

Meet the Vets

Richard Chamings - Ines Gniwotta - Ann Carman - Jo Ablett

About Our Vets


Richard founded White House Vets in 1985. Prior to that Richard worked in veterinary practices in the West Country after qualifying from the Royal (Dick) Veterinary College, Edinburgh, in 1974.


He lives with his wife on Castlemorton Common, and has four grown-up daughters. One of his main hobbies is walking the Malvern Hills with his  dogs, Chipper, a Flatcoated Retriever, and Bertie, a Miniature Wire-haired Dachshund, who keeps up very well but sometimes likes to be carried! He also has two cats, Willow and Woody. He enjoys longer distance walking, having recently walked the Two Moors Way in Devon for charity, and Offas Dyke on the Welsh Border.

One of his other hobbies is keeping bees




Ines qualified from the University of Berlin in 1994. After the fall of the "wall", she used her new found freedom to travel and came to work in England in 1999.


She has worked in practices in Yorkshire, Humberside, and the West Midlands. She enjoys the variety of work, but has a particular interest in soft tissue surgery and cardiac ultrasonagraphy. Her husband is also a vet, and together they have three children and a much-loved cat called "Kitty". She loves her garden, producing large quantities of vegetables,and enjoys walking and swimming.




Ann qualified from the Royal Veterinary College, London, in 1983 and worked in small animal practices including the PDSA.


She decided she wanted to be a vet while growing up in rural Cheshire and spending time with animals of all sorts. After qualifying she found that she preferred the variety of companion animal practice


Anne joined White House Vets in 1988, and rapidly established herself as a competent and popular veterinary surgeon. She is now the senior clinician, her main areas of expertise being internal medicine and soft tissue surgery.


She has a Springer Spaniel called "Fritz" (who has been known to steal many a sandwich at work!), is a member of the local Trade Justice Group and sings in Colwall choir.




Jo qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in London in 1994. She has worked in Weymouth and in Birmingham before joining White House Vets in 2007.


She enjoys the variety of work that companion animal provides, and is especially interested in dermatitis and endocrine diseases such as diabetes. 

Another aspect of her work that she finds fascinating is the relationship between people and their pets.


She is married with three daughters. She loves to ski and travel with her family as well as running or walking on the hills with her Lurchers, Lola  and Speck  ......... when time permits!
