Meet the Rotherham vet team

Eric JVP Rotherham

Eric Rouviere CertSAS GPCertSAS

Veterinary Surgeon & Partner

I always knew that I wanted to be a vet and from a very young age I took a close interest in animals. I gained my veterinary degree at the University of Madrid and made the UK my permanent home soon after. I quickly came to realise that I had a particular passion for surgery. Whilst working as a full time vet in a small animal hospital, I achieved my Certificate in Small Animal Surgery accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. I have also run a successful Soft Tissue Referral Service in Doncaster.

I have been nearly 10 years in South Yorkshire, so I feel like a "Yorkshire lad" with spanish blood!

As a pet owner myself I am passionate about providing the best standards in care for the animals that I treat and their owners. This has always been and will continue to be, my first priority.

Tom Osinski

Veterinary Surgeon

Hi, I’m Tom and I graduated from the University of Liverpool. I grew up in Yorkshire and have worked in a number of practices, ranging from small first opinion branches to busy 24/7 hospitals.

I enjoy all aspects of being a vet, but have a particular interest in pain management and internal medicine.

I only want the best for the pets I see and will always treat them as I would my own.

I live locally with my wife and we have a Miniature Schnauzer called Billy . Billy often comes to work with me and loves going for walks, especially to the shops!

I joined Vets4Pets in November 2016 and really enjoy working as part of a busy team that's dedicated to providing the best veterinary care.

Intern Veterinary Surgeon

I qualified as a veterinary surgeon from the Warsaw University of Life Sciences in February 2018 and joined the Rotherham team in May. It is my first job as a vet and I enjoy meeting new people and their fluffy friends!

I love all animals, big and small, but particularly German shepherds. I have a lovely German shepherd dog called Mila. She lives with my parents in Poland, along with my Siberian cat, Chica.

In my spare time I enjoy backpacking and cycling, especially to places off the beaten track.

Registered Veterinary Nurse

From a very young age I knew I wanted to work with animals. At the age of 15 I got my first veterinary care assistant job after school and at the weekends to help to pay for the upkeep of my then pony Molly. This opportunity gave me great knowledge in the industry and I decided I would like to start training to become a veterinary nurse. I began my degree in 2012 and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2015. I have a keen interest in surgical nursing and also nutrition.
