Dr.med.vet MRCVS

Practice Owner & Senior Veterinary Surgeon

I am the Senior Vet and owner of Vets4Pets Cirencester. Since I was little girl I was fascinated by veterinary medicine and as soon as I could, I started helping out, after school, in my local small animal vet practice. There was no doubt that I would study Veterinary Medicine and in 2001 I graduated from University of Veterinary Science, Hannover / Germany. I continued straight away writing my doctoral thesis at the University whilst working passionately in small animal hospitals.

In 2009 I married my English husband,who served in the British Army based in Germany, and soon after we moved back to England. Since then I have worked in several different small animal surgeries from Cambridge in the East, to Winchester and on to Poole on the South coast, in line with 2 yearly Army postings.

Finally we are able to settle down and I am so happy that I get the chance to fulfil my dream of leading my own vet practice. I absolutely love all aspects of being a vet, my particular areas of interest are ultrasound, internal medicine, behaviour and 'small furries'. At home I enjoy spending time with my two boys and my husband, our Polo horses, two rescue cats “Monty & Mowgli’ and two dogs ‘Lilly & Lulu’.

Marieke Bartlett MCRVS

Veterinary Surgeon

Having grown up with lots of pets and a passion for horse riding, I was always keen to pursue a career with animals.

After school I completed a degree in Animal Science, focusing on large animal and equine nutrition and physiology. I then spent a couple of years living and working in New Zealand before deciding to return to the UK to study Veterinary Medicine, completing my degree in 2011. 

Since then I have work in mixed and small animal practice in Devon and Gloucestershire, and have a particular interest in Cardiology, and osteoarthritis and pain management in older pets. 

Outside of work my two and a half year old keeps me pretty busy! But I also enjoy walking our black Labrador Angus around the beautiful Cotswold countryside.

Veterinary Surgeon

Having always loved animals, I was able to follow a career in veterinary medicine after graduating in 2011 in Bucharest, Romania.

Moved to the UK in 2013 and since then been working in small animal practice around Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire. 

Recently I have joined Vets4Pets Cirencester after moving in the lovely Cotswolds where my future husband relocated as a mixed animal practice vet. 

I have a passion for dermatology  as well as for small animal surgery.

In my spare time my fiancée and I love cycling, horse riding and long walks discovering the amazing landscapes around Cotswold.

I have a very loud love-bird called Cocorico and a rescued hamster called Speedy.

Sharon Cuss

Practice Manager

I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 1993 and have worked in many practices since.

I have an interest in the management side of veterinary practice and have gained a further qualification in this area by completing a certificate in practice management and administration.

As a practice we do see a lot of rabbits so I have also completed a rabbit awareness course.I have a border terrier called Oakley. He is very active so I spend most of my spare time going for long walks and attending agility and training classes with him.

Cindy Turner

Head Veterinary Nurse

I qualified in 1987 and started at Vets4Pets Cirencester in May 2015. I love working with cats, especially the 'difficult' ones. I gained over the years a diploma in feline behaviour and due to my involvement in that area I have three wonderful rescue cats, Katie, Shellie and Killer. All of them come with a tail to tell to how to be with me. 

But to do the dog world justice I have as well a very active Jack Russell Terrier, Madison. She has walked the Ridgeway path with me to raise funds for the Cambridge veterinary university cancer unit. 

Please come and see me in the nurse clinics, which I really enjoy. I am always on the other end of the phone for you for advise or consult me regarding cat behaviour.

Lydia Chappell

Veterinary Nurse

I have been working at Vets4Pets Cirencester since June 2017. I qualified as a veterinary nurse in August 2015 after completing a Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing at Hartpury College. Prior to joining Vets4Pets I completed a Level 3 Diploma in Horse Management at Lackham College and I have worked as an equine nurse. 

I have three horses at home which I love to exercise in my spare time. I also share eight dogs with my partner which keep us very busy. I enjoy walking and training them. 

My main interests are dog behaviour, puppy socialisation, nurse consults and caring for our hospitalised in-patients.

Sarah Tuff

Veterinary Care Assistant

I have always had a passion for animals, having worked in the equine industry for many years. I completed a BSc (Hons) Degree in Animal Management in 2008 and have worked in the veterinary profession since. 

I was one of the reception team at Vets4Pets Cirencester when it first opened, but I changed to being a store colleague downstairs in the Pets At Home store, where I became a Keyholder and gained my qualification as a SQP (Suitably Qualified Person) to enable me to prescribe and dispense flea and worm products. 

In September 2017 I returned to the Vets4Pets team as a Veterinary Care Assistant to assist the vets and nurses in looking after all the animals that come into our care.

Stephanie Illing

Head Receptionist

I have lived in the Cotswolds most of my life and have recently bought a house in Cirencester with my Fiance.  I have two rabbits called Rupurt and Penny. Penny is a Lionhead Cross and Rupurt is a Netherland Dwarf Cross. 

I am currently doing a Veterinary Nurse Assistant course online and in my free time I do many crafts including pottery, sewing, leather, cake decorating, button art and bookbinding. 

I love animals and can't wait to meet all your pets.

Tracey Nelmes

Receptionist

I have many years experience working within the animal world from working at Purton Vets at the Cricklade Branch to setting up my own dog walking/pet sitting business in 2009. 

I have just recently finished dog walking and cat sitting for Whisker's in the Cotswolds. I now live with my teenage daughter and two 9 year old cats in Cirencester. Daisy is a ginger & white cat who I often call Garfield. She is so mischievous! Ebony is black and loves lots of cuddles to the point she will crawl up your legs to your shoulders if she gets the chance. I was also brought up with black Labradors as a child and started my love of animals at school in Whitby with 3 hamsters. 

We usually have a hamster at home but unfortunately we lost Teddy recently. Looks like it's a puppy next! 

I am looking forward to meeting you all and learning all aspects of the Veterinary World. Vets4Pets Cirencester is a great place to work and I am enjoying every minute.

I expect in the future there will be more animals to come!
