Carlo De Vito DVM MRCVS

Owner & Veterinary Surgeon 

I qualified as a veterinary surgeon in Italy in 1998 and after practising as a vet in Italy, I moved to the Middle East (Kuwait and Qatar). I have been working in the UK since 2011.

My special interests are all first opinion conditions in dogs and cats, along with ultrasound and orthopaedic procedures.

Stefano Ludovici DVM MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon 

I graduated in Naples, Italy, in 2015. After a training period in Spain and Italy, I moved to the UK for my next challenge and joined the practice in September 2017.

My interests include anything relating to veterinary medicine and I am currently studying for a Post Graduate Certificate in Small Animal Medicine. My hobbies include travelling, music (I can play the drums), books and seeing a good movie!

Carol Putt

Practice Manager

I joined the practice when we opened in March 2015. I really enjoy my role, which is always interesting, and I am lucky to work with the great team of colleagues that we have here. At home I have 2 crazy Labradors called Rolo & Ollie, 3 cats and a rabbit. I love to go away for weekends with friends in our caravan.


Stacey McMillan 

Registered Veterinary Nurse 

I graduated from university in 2013 with a degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare. I then volunteered at Vets4Pets Southend for 6 months as a Nurse Assistant, before progressing to Companion Care Chelmsford with a job as a VCA. I transferred to this surgery when it opened, started my nurse training and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in January 2018. I have a Golden Retriever called Brody, a guinea pig called Patrick and a chicken called Fleur. I've been horse riding since I was 9 years old and also loan a horse called Penny.

I qualified as a small animal hydrotherapist in 2014. I joined the practice as a VCA in August 2016 and I started studying for my official VCA qualification in October 2017, which I have just passed successfully! At home I have a dog called Peanut and a cat called Sydney. In my spare time I enjoy dog walking and drawing.


Tanisha Deary

Client Care Advisor

I joined the practice in September 2017. Since then I have enjoyed every moment and the team have been helpful and welcoming. I have 2 pet rats and a very mischievous rabbit called Rocky. He was taken poorly before the store had chance to sell him and I took him home to care for overnight and ended up keeping him! In my spare time I ride horses and go for long walks with my family and 2 Jack Russells, called Jack and Russell!

Client Care Advisor

Hi I'm Katie. I joined the team in July 2017 and work part time 2 evenings a week and one weekend, as I am still in full time education studying for my A levels. I love being around animals and really enjoy meeting our clients and their pets. Our family has 2 Labradors, 3 cats and a rabbit. I also own my own horse called Jess, who I love to ride several times a week.!
