Charlton Sinead

Sinead Ennis- (Maternity Leave)
MVB MRCVS

Practice Owner &Veterinary Surgeon

I came over from Dublin in 2002 having graduated as a vet with a keen interest in small animal surgery. I first came to work for Charlton Companion Care in 2004 and very quickly fell in love with London and I knew I would be here to stay. 

In 2006 I took the opportunity to invest in the practice and have really enjoyed developing a relationship with my patients and their owners.

I am really proud to be able to offer a warm, friendly and professional service with a high standard of veterinary care.

Samantha Buckland

Practice Manager 

I joined the practice in January 2008 as a part time receptionist after spending three years studying for my First Diploma in Animal Care and then a National Diploma in Animal Management. I quickly took on a full time receptionist position and in November 2012 I became the head receptionist; during this time I also studied for a Pet Loss Bereavement Support certificate with the Bluecross.

In November 2013 I became the Assistant Practice Manager and subsequently became the Practice Manager in January 2018. During this time I have completed a Level 3 Diploma in First Line Management and I'm currently studying a Foundation Degree in Management and Leadership with the Chartered Management Institute. My priorities include providing our clients with excellent customer service and value for money, as well as providing support for all the staff.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, travelling to new countries and having a go at baking. At home I have a cross bred husky called Diesel and two cats, Molly and Jess.

Veterinary Surgeon

After obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Biology and French at the University of Pennsylvania, I went on to pursue my veterinary degree at Szent István University. Upon completing my degree, I relocated to the UK where I began working as a vet in a busy small animal practice in Essex. Having spent four years in Essex, I've gotten the exciting chance to move into London and join the Vets4Pets Charlton team. 

Outside of work, I am an avid rowing fan and love to travel-- especially back to my two rambunctious Jack Russels, Beano & Tadgh, who still live in the States.

Lilia Silva MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

I finished my Veterinary Medicine degree in July 2015 from University of Lisbon, Portugal. I undertook further training in a referal hospital in Lisbon and then in an hospital in East London. After that I moved to London, did volunteering at BlueCross and worked for 2 years as an emergency/night vet in an hospital in South West London. I particularly enjoy surgery, and I am starting a certificate in surgery in 2018.

I joined Vets4Pets Charlton in November 2017, and I am looking forward to meeting you all and your furry friends!

In my spare time I love to travel, explore London and spend quality time with family, friends and my very cute but sassy ginger cat!

I graduated from the University of Utrecht as a companion animal vet in 2016. I am originally South African, but have lived in Holland for the last 10 years. I joined Vets4Pets Charlton in March 2017 and am excited to call London my new home.

I have a keen interest in Small Animal Medicine and love everything small and furry. I look forward to meeting all our clients and getting to know your pets.

In my free time, I enjoy socialising with my friends, exploring London and travelling across the globe. I also miss my two imported South African rescue cats, Artemis and Merlot, still living in the Netherlands.




Fabio Charlton

Fabio di Popolo RVN

Registered Veterinary Nurse

My first venture into the veterinary world has been here at Vets4pets Charlton after having completed two weeks work experience back in June 2012. 

I enjoyed the experience so much that I began voluntary work experience every Saturday; I was delighted to accept a part time position in January 2013 whilst I attended sixth form on weekdays studying Biology, Chemistry, Business Studies and Law. 

During this time I decided that the career path for me was to be a Veterinary Nurse and therefore became a full time member of staff in August 2014. In January 2015 I started my Veterinary Nurse training and in August 2017 I qualified!
At home I have a cat called Tommy and two rabbits called Millie and Fizzy.

Sophie Wynne-Williams RVN

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I joined Vets4Pets Charlton in August 2014 and I became a qualified veterinary nurse in April 2018. Previously I had been studying in Plymouth for my BSc in Animal Science (Behaviour and Welfare). During this time I completed two internships, the first working in Africa to rehabilitate penguins and seabirds at Sanccob. For my second internship I worked to rehabilitate young orphaned baboons at Care. Working at Vets4Pets has given me the opportunity to continue helping animals.
I have a large menagerie of pets including two cats, three parrotlett’s, a green cheek conure, two rabbits and nine guinea pigs. Pictured with me is one of my cats Lola and my cheeky conure Chico.

Veterinary Care Assistant

I have always been passionate about the care and welfare of animals and always wanted to pursue a career in the Veterinary industry. I joined the practice in September 2015 as VCA, after completing my 2 year course in Level 3 Animal Management at Hadlow College. 

At home I have a winter white hamster called Maximus, who I adopted from pets at home, and a cheeky little budgie called Rocky!

Animals have always been a huge part of my life and I've owned a variety of pets over the years.

Previously I studied at Westminster University and completed my degree in TV Production. However, my passion for animals led me onto a new career path and I joined the practice in June 2016. In January 2018 I started a course with the College of Animal Welfare to train as Veterinary Nurse.

At home I have 4 snakes (including Tengu my 6 foot boa constrictor!) 6 geckos, a tortoise, a newt, 2 hamsters, a Guinea pig and lots of pet mice and quails!

Rachael Duthie

Veterinary Care Assistant

I originally studied English at Queen's University Belfast but soon after graduating realised that the only career that I could truly love was one working with animals. In order to achieve this goal I completed an HND Level 5 in Animal Management, before moving to London with my two dogs and joining the team in August 2017.

Back in Ireland, I have two cats, another dog, and a rabbit who live happily with my parents in the country-side where I grew up. My interests haven't changed much since I was young and as such I love gaming, reading, and exploring with my animals whenever I can.
