Steph Vets4Pets Sutton in Ashfield

Stephanie Smith

Veterinary Surgeon & Joint Venture Partner

I am a Veterinary Surgeon and one of the practice partners here at Vets4Pets Kirkby in Ashfield. I have worked at Vets4pets for the past 3 years, initially at Mansfield Vets4Pets before setting up my own practice here in Kirkby and Sutton. Prior to this I worked at a Veterinary Practice in Derby. 

I enjoy all aspects of my job but I have a particular interest in small animal medicine and dermatology. I love my small furry patients especially rabbits and piggies! I have 3 dogs (a Border Collie, a Cocker Spaniel and a Sprocker), 1 cat, 3 rabbits, 5 guinea pigs, 1 hamster, 2 zebra finches and lots of chickens! In my spare time I enjoy walking the dogs, camping and going swimming when I have the time!

Julie Ling

Veterinary Surgeon & Joint Venture Partner

I am a Veterinary Surgeon, I have recently joined the Kirkby team after working in a small animal practice near Chesterfield for the past 3.5 years. I have particular interests in diagnostic imagery and small animal medicine. At home I live with my fiancé Matt, a lively border collie, 1 cat, 2 chickens and 2 wonderful horses.

I devote a lot of my spare time to my animals and my most recent project - building a cattery on my back garden hopefully to be open by winter of this year.

Hayley Roberts

Head Veterinary Nurse

I have worked with vets4pets for over 10 years and became a registered veterinary nurse in 2012, In my years with vets4pets I have learned a lot and taken up further qualifications in order to help improve my patient care skills.

As well as being a veterinary nurse I am also a pet health care counsellor, a diabetes adviser and clinical coach (practical trainer and assessor of student veterinary nurses).

The aspect of my job I find the most enjoyable are consults, as this allows me to help support and educate owners in preventative health care be it parasite control to behaviour concerns. This job allows me to learn something new and interesting everyday, which I have to admit I love being somewhat of a nerd.
