Abigail Semal BVSc MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from Liverpool university in 1994, so have been a vet for 20 years now. My family have had a pet dog from before I was born and as a teenager I just decided being a vet was what I wanted to do. At university I decided I wanted a black Labrador and 4 years after leaving I finally got one, then I got another 6 years later. Immediately on leaving university I got 2 cats who lived an impressive 16 and 17&1/2 yrs, although unfortunately they are all now no longer with us. I have gained a lot of experience over the years and am dedicated to providing an excellent service to all my clients.

When not at work I enjoy meeting my friends for a nice meal out and walking my new dog, and of course relaxing! I also enjoy skiing and travelling to far flung places around the world, although it's been over a year since my last big trip now!

Phil McGee RVN NCert (AnBeh)

Senior Veterinary Nurse & Consultant in Animal Behaviour

I started my career in Veterinary practice way back in 2002 where I began my veterinary nurse training in a small animal practice in Liverpool. After qualifying in February 2006 I left this practice to join a large, 4 surgery veterinary practice in order to gain further experience and continue to improve my knowledge of veterinary care. This I felt was important to ensure I can offer the best and most up to date care and advice to the surgery’s clients and their pets.

I enjoy all aspects of veterinary nursing but have a special interest in animal behaviour. I have both studied and received certificates in companion animal behaviour from the British Veterinary Nursing Association (BVNA) as well as a post graduate certificate in animal behaviour from the European School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ESVPS).

I have a Border terrier called Frodo who is nearly 4 and together with my partners dogs Meg, a black Labrador and Hatty, a boxer, we all enjoy getting out for long walks in the countryside, particularly if they end up at a cosy country pub.

I’m a great believer in the saying “prevention is better than cure” and working with the Vets4Pets Cheadle team will promote the importance of preventative healthcare so that we may offer our clients the best care for their pets.

Hi I'm Zoe, I have loved working here this past year. I have learnt so many new things, met some great people and their lovely pets. I am looking forward to see what this next year brings. Out of work I enjoy spending time with my family and my dog Tyson.

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I have worked as a Veterinary Nurse since 1998 starting my career as a veterinary assistant working for the RSPCA in Barbados.When I returned home,I enrolled and completed my nurse training to qualify in 2006 from Myerscough College in Preston.

Since then I have worked in a number of small animal practices and gained valuable experience.

I joined the Vets4Pets team here at Cheadle in March of this year.

I have two cats,Corrina and Lara who are both 13 years old and have recently been diagnosed with diabetes.

Away from work I enjoy spending time with family and friends.

Neil Eccleston

Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2010 after completing a Bachelors of Veterinary Science and Masters in Veterinary Parasitology. After graduating I moved to the east Cheshire/Manchester area where I worked in small animal practice for 2 years, then set up a Limited company to provide professional locum services for around 3 years. I joined Vets4Pets Cheadle in February 2015, but have been working with the team when Abigail had some much needed time off since mid 2013. Due to this, I had gotten close to the team and familiar with the clients, and this ultimately influenced my decision to move back for a full time position here.

I enjoy all aspects of the job, and have spent time in Grenada, West Indies and Lexington, Kentucky, improving my surgical skills and clinical experience, to progress the continual learning needed in this job. I particularly enjoy internal medicine, especially cardiology and am currently enrolled on the RCVS Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (CertAVP) in Cardiology, but also diagnostic imaging. Putting all the pieces to a clinical problem together to get a patient fit and well again is a very rewarding experience.

Out of work I enjoy meeting up with friends and spending time with my other half. I'm a bit of a history geek, a fan of the great outdoors and also go travelling as often as I can. We currently have a little hamster called smoke, who acts more like a dog, but we hope to be getting two lab retriever dogs very soon to add to the family. Cheadle Vets4Pets has always been a very fun work environment and hopefully clients can pick up one our happy team ethos, though it can be a very stressful job. Communication is of utmost importance to myself so every client understands and is happy with every visit whether it be a booster vaccination or seeing one of their pets back to good health.

I joined Vets4Pets in August 2015 in a role that work-wise is a completely new venture for me. With a life-long love of animals, in particular dogs and horses, I didn’t imagine I would ever have the privilege of working within a veterinary practice and feel very lucky to have been given the opportunity.

Over the last 25 years I have owned 4 Doberman Pinschers (Khan, Samuel, Jeremiah and Coco), but after laying my last Dobie to rest I made the decision to ‘down-size’ on the dog front and am now the very proud owner of a Miniature Pinscher named Twiggy! I go horse-riding regularly along with my daughter who has also been well and truly bitten by the horse bug!

I love meeting all our clients and their pets, each with their own story to tell, and feel honoured to be part of such a compassionate and caring team as the one here.
