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.

Jennifer Naylor BVSc MRCVS

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.

Hi my name is Yvonne.  I'm always at my happiest when surrounded by animals.  I started my working career in a boarding kennels before moving to a Veterinary Surgery.  I started my family and chose to have an extended break from my career.  I am thrilled to be back in the environment where I feel I belong.

Outside of work I am the proud owner of a boisterous 9 year old Springer Spaniel, who keeps me on my toes.  I am a keen gardener, always trying to create natural habitats for our fantastic wildlife.  I have also recently started to take part in my local 5K Parkrun.

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.
