Cheryl BSc(hons) BVetMed (hons) CertAVP MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon and Owner who features on CBBC's Pets Factor!

Born and brought up in London, I was determined to be a vet for as long as I can remember! My earliest memories are of playing with our family spaniel.

I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in London in 2009 and have worked in small animal practice ever since, mostly in London, but spent 4 years volunteering and working in Australia and South East Asia.

Having now settled in East London/Essex I decided to open Vets4Pets in Chadwell Heath in early 2014, which I have enjoyed so much I decided to take over Vets4Pets in Newbury Park Ilford in 2017. I thrive on providing a fantastic service to our clients and the best possible care for all patients.My special interest is in surgery, and have recently completed an RCVS certificate.

At home I have an elderly Cavalier King Charles, Cerys and two rescue cats ''the boys'' Gordon and Bagheera. When I'm not working I can usually be found walking in the forest, at the gym or exploring overseas.

I am now part of CBBC's Pets Factor team!

Lise

Veterinary Surgeon

Growing up in the South African bush, I was surrounded by a pretty diverse range of species right from the word go, which is where I think I developed my passion for animals. I graduated from Nottingham Vet School in 2017 and decided to make the big move down to London, so here I am!

I am one of those people that believe you can't just be a cat person or a dog person because I absolutely love both. I have a Flat-Coated Retriever called Kenco (named after the coffee) and an absolute prince of a Siamese cat called Milo.

Kasia MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

I always had an interest in animals and since a young age I have always wanted to be a vet. I was born and grew up in Poland. I graduated from Warsaw University of Life Sciences in 2013 and started working in small animal practice soon after. In 2015 I moved to Belize in Central America where I completed wildlife internship and than worked in a veterinary clinic both with wildlife and domestic patients. I recently joined Vets4Pets Ilford and I enjoy challenges and variety that every day at work brings.

Daisy RVN

Head Veterinary Nurse

I've always had an interest in animals and have had many over the years. I started working in a small animal hospital which is where I trained and qualified. I enjoy being qualified and all the day to day challenges that the nursing job entails as no two days are the same.

I currently have 2 border collies called Lyn and Sky and 2 cats called Booboo and Poppy. I have a keen interest in small furries too as I currently have 11 Gerbils which keep me busy!

Charlotte VCA

Student Veterinary Nurse

Hello! My name is Charlotte. I am a Qualified VCA and started working for Pets at home in 2007, where my love for animals and retail was combined.

I decided right away that my love for animals was the career that I wanted to pursue. I joined the team in 2012, and qualified as a Veterinary Care Assistant Nurse in 2017! I love every aspect of being a Nurse and I am aiming towards being an RVN.

I have a Shih-Tzu called Prezley & a Ginger cat called Harry. On my days off I love to spend time with my Daughter Ruby & going on dog walks.

Patient Care Assistant

I have always known that I wanted to work with and care for animals. I first started working with animals at Pets at Home in 2016 so if I look familiar that might be why! I am now patient care assistant here and I cannot wait to care for all of our lovely patients. I have four rabbits and a German Shepherd at home!
