Vets4Pets Alsager

Meet the team


Carl May RVN

Head Nurse and Practice Owner

I secured my first job in a veterinary practice at the age of 14 years old when after a two week work experience placement I was offered the opportunity to work as an animal care assistant after school, at weekends and during school holidays. This lead to me qualifying as a veterinary nurse from Rodbaston agricultural college in 1996.

I spent 2 years working at the PDSA in Stoke on Trent before travelling to New Zealand were I worked in a referral hospital in Auckland for a while then continued travelling around the country picking up work as I went including fruit picking, planting trees and working in a saw mill before finishing my travels in South East Asia.

On returning to the UK In 2000, I had various head nurse positions in practices in Lancaster, Biddulph and Congleton. During this time I also worked weekends at the local emergency out of hours clinic and eventually in 2014 accepted a position of head nurse there. In 2015 I came to Longton Vets4Pets as head nurse where I met Lindsey before the opportunity at Alsager came up.

Main interests are anything small animal but particularly enjoy wound management, radiography, anything surgical and very much enjoy nurse clinics which gives me the opportunity to get to know clients and to be involved in helping to keep their pets fit and healthy throughout their lives.

Hobbies - I'm a retired rugby player after 25 years but still very keen spectator. I enjoy fishing, walking our two dogs - Vinnie an English springer spaniel and Bodhi a Hungarian Vizsla, reading, cooking, camping and anything else that involves me being outdoors.

I look forward to welcoming you and your pets here at Alsager.


Emily BVetMed (hons) MRCVS


I grew up in Macclesfield surrounded by a menagerie, and knew I wanted to be a vet from the age of about 6. I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College, London in 2014: five years training in the city was certainly a change from the peace of rural Cheshire but I loved every minute. In my spare time I enjoy running and going to the gym, although seem to be battling near-constant injury, and would love to (eventually...!) run a marathon. I also love long walks in the Peak District with my Whippet, Flo and rescue Wire-Haired Fox Terrier, Jack.

Having spent eighteen months in another small animal practice I am very excited to be joining the team at Alsager and am looking forward to the adventures that lie ahead!


Natalie Walters BVMS MRCVS


I knew from being a small child I wanted to be a vet and I finally achieved my dream when I graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 2010. I spent just under a year working in a practice in Newcastle-under-Lyme and then moved on to a busy hospital in Nantwich where I saw a large and varied case load. After 2 years there I had my little boy, Toby, and returned to a new job at a 1 vet branch practice so I could spend a bit more time with my family. I am just returning from maternity leave with my 2nd child, Emily, and I am really looking forward to joining the team at Alsager and getting to know you and your pets.

I love all aspects of my job but I have a particular interest in medicine cases. I really enjoy day to day consults because this is when I find out more about you and your animals which makes sure I can address the needs of each patient as an individual. 

In my spare time (and there isn’t much with 2 children at home!) I like to eat out, go to the theatre and cook for friends and family.

Working with animals has always been a passion of mine. From a young age I used to help out at my local pet shop and from there I started to walk the dogs on my estate which I loved. After high school I went on to ReaseHeath College to complete my NVQ in animal care, in hopes that one day I would start my veterinary nurse training. I now have a 4 year old son named Romone, who shows and shares his love for animals, just like his mum, which is amazing. We have two dogs Fly (whippet cross) and Darcy (Bedlington terrier) and three cats Marcellous, Elijah and Nicklaus. Two rabbits, Sparky and Peter and last but not least four fish.



I have recently joined the Vets4Pets team after almost 3 and a half years in my last practice. I am very excited to be in our shiny, new surgery and am looking forward to meeting you and your pets!

At home I have a loopy chocolate Labrador called Cadbury and a lovely old man, Harvey our rescue German Shepherd-cross and 2 very noisy guinea pigs, Stanley & Norman. in my spare time I enjoy walking the dogs and spending time with my family and friends.
