Meet the Peterborough vet team

Holly Norman BSc(Hons)BVetMed MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon and Partner

I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 2011 and started at Vets4Pets in 2014. I enjoy working with all kinds of animals but have a special interest in dentistry, ophthalmology and looking after our older pets.

Just like people, I think that our pets are only as old as they feel! At home, I have two Springer Spaniels, called Cleo and Nero, and we do agility and heel work together. I also have a ginger cat, called Cairo, who is very naughty!

Laura Elder BVSc MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon and Partner

My love of animals started at a very young age; where as I grew up I had a strong interest in science and this led me to study to become a vet at Bristol University.

Since then I have gained experience working at several small animal surgeries and I was thrilled to join the Vets4Pets Peterborough team in January 2013, where I have been able to provide the high quality of care I strive for, with a friendly, personal service. I became a partner later that year when we also had the exciting opportunity to open our sister practice in Bretton.

I enjoy all aspects and the variety of veterinary practice but have a particular interest in internal medicine and imaging such as ultrasound. I enjoy building relationships with my patients and their owners, treating each patient as an individual and I look forward to getting to know you and your much loved family pets.

Veterinary Surgeon

When I was five years old I decided to be a vet and never thought about doing anything else since. After finishing veterinary high school I studied veterinary medicine at the University of Zagreb where I graduated in 2016. I've joined Vets4pets Peterborough team in September 2017. After previously working as a small animal vet in Split. I have special interests in soft tissue surgery and cytology. 

Outside of work there is nothing better than reading a good book. Back home I was a passionate beekeeper so I hope to have beehives in England as well one day. I consider helping pets a privilege, also being a vet is a constant challenge and a truly rewarding life.

Veterinary Surgeon

Since I was a child I always had a great understanding and could easily develop a natural bond with animals of all species. At early age I knew my life will be linked to animals. After I got my MDV degree in Lublin, Poland; I started to work in Lund University, Sweden with Functional Zoology Team and Gut group, later I worked in Nutrition Science Program for Memphis University, TN, USA. In 2014 I moved to UK and find my place in Vets4Pets where I can enjoy my work, and spend a lot of time with various pets. 

In private, I am a happy owner of 19 tropical fish.

Wojtek Schmidt MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated in 2015 in Olsztyn, a city surrounded by beautiful lakeside in Poland. Since early years of university, I have attended many private practices to gain clinical experience. Just after I got my diploma, I had a 3 month internship in Porto, Portugal in a reputable 24 hour hospital, where I learned a great deal on patient care and emergency. I have worked as a vet in Britain for almost 2 years now, enjoying every aspect of my job, but with special interest in imaging, especially ultrasound, and surgery. 

I live with my partner, Karolina, and have a cat – she has only three legs but is running around the house like crazy!

 

In my free time I enjoy reading classical literature, watching good movies or tennis and occasional fishing trip. I take every chance to spend some time in Portugal every now and then.
