Vet Peter Scott Dunn died on 4 April aged 90.

Peter qualified from the Royal Veterinary College London in 1946.

In the 1970s, with the help of his wife Ann, and Tony Ward, he created what is now known as Scott Dunn’s Equine Clinic in Berkshire. Peter remained in charge until 2006.

Peter was also vet to the Royal Household from 1969 until 2005 and was a vet for Team GBR at 8 Olympics.

“Over the years, Peter was involved with horses and ponies from Pony Club to the Palace,” said a spokesman from the practice.

“He approached all of his charges with the same diligence and compassion.”

Peter’s funeral will take place on Monday 28 April at All Saints Church Wokingham at midday.
