Meet the Team

Amy Foster RVN

Registered Veterinary Nurse & JVP

Hi, my name is Amy and I am a Registered Veterinary Nurse here at the Burscough surgery. I have been in practice for 7 years, and I qualified in 2015.

I am very excited to be joining Vets4Pets and my new team. I am passionate about all aspects of veterinary nursing, but I especially enjoy providing nurse consults for all of the pets that we see at the surgery. I try to continuously keep my knowledge up to date, and I am currently undertaking further study to gain a certificate in emergency and critical care.

At home I have a 2 year old border terrier called Nell, and several goldfish but only one of which has a name; Rainbow Dash!   

When I do leave the surgery I spend as much time as I can with my beautiful daughter and my fiancé, I also enjoy walking, seeing friends, and going on as many holidays as I possibly can.

Veterinary Surgeon & JVP

I joined Vets4Pets Burscough when it opened. Originally I was just here temporarily for 6 weeks, but soon fell in love with the practice and clients and decided to become a partner along with Amy.

After graduating from the University of Liverpool I spent several years working as a mixed vet in rural Wales, but then decided to concentrate on small animals. I am a member of the Association of British Acupuncturists and love using acupuncture as an additional treatment for a wide range of conditions.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband, our hyper cocker spaniel Louie and our little tabby cat ChilliBonBon.

Registered Veterinary Nurse

My name is Karen and I started working for Vets4Pets Burscough in November 2016. I live with my husband and my two beautiful little Chihuahuas Mindy and Alice. I have a keen interest in horses, I enjoy socialising and walking my fur babies.


After qualifying in 2005 my interest in pet health and nutrition grew, I then gained my Pet Health Counsellor Certificate and my Nutritional Health Advisor Certificate. I have been involved in setting up various types of nurse clinics including senior health clinics and weight management clinics. Over the years I have assisted numerous clients to achieve a healthy weight for their pet at specialist weight management clinics.

Chloe Sultan

Student Veterinary Nurse

Hi, my name is Chloe and I am currently training to hopefully become a veterinary nurse. I have been volunteering in practices for 2 years prior to starting my foundation course in veterinary nursing. I recently gained a qualification in animal management and have a keen interest in exotic animals. I am excited about joining Vets4Pets and getting to know my new team.


I found a passion for animals when I first carried out volunteering work at a kennels, the best part was seeing animals getting adopted and going to their forever home. This was the most rewarding job. I then carried out work experience on a farm which widened my knowledge further.


Outside of working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends as well as my dog Millie and guinea pig Bruno. Bruno is the craziest guinea pig and a cheeky chap at heart, whereas Millie is laid back and scared of everything!

Lucy Foster


Hi, my name is Lucy and I will be one of the new receptionists at our Burscough surgery.  I have just finished studying Health and Social Care at Cardinal Newman College.

I love animals.  I am a farmer’s daughter and I have been around all kinds of animals all of my life.  During my studies at college I had a weekend job at Windmill Animal Farm.  Windmill farm is a local petting farm; it was an amazing first job. 

I couldn't imagine my life to be any different. I am hoping to carry on working with animals as long as I can, as it is honestly the most rewarding job anybody could ask for.

Hi, my name is Lottie and I have been working as a VCA since late May 2017, at Burscough Vets4Pets. I also work for Pets at Home, so I get to experience all aspects of animal care. At college I studied animal management at a diploma level and later went on to study both English Literature and Health and Social care. I have since worked in various roles within animal care and I am particularly interested in animal behaviour and evolution.

When I'm not working I enjoy reading, crafts, spending time with family and friends, painting, drawing and caring for my herd of animals that include a Shih Tzu - Teddie, Jack Russell - Codey, Siberian Forest Cat - Tatiana, Two rescue moggies - Vincent and Pablo and a Corn Snake - Florence.
