Mel BVSc MRCVS

Practice Owner and Veterinary Surgeon

I qualified from the University of Liverpool in 2013. After starting work in a mixed practice in North Wales, I then changed to small animal practice with a quick stint in South Africa doing some wildlife veterinary work. I spent 9 months working as a locum before settling here at Leigh. I have a keen interest in keeping veterinary visits as fear free as possible, as well as an interest in surgery, senior pets and rabbits.

In my spare time I can be spotted running in the hills with my collie cross Jack who you may have spotted as the happy black and white dog on the Vets4Pets TV advert. I also have a keen interest in rugby and although I tend to watch it more than play these days I am looking to hopefully be getting back out on the pitch soon.

Michelle RVN

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I have been nursing for 17 years since qualifying in 2005 and have worked in a mix of emergency referral and first opinion practices. I am an accredited dog trainer with The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers and I am currently studying for my advance diploma in Canine Behaviour Management.

I am also a Fear Free Certified Professional, one of a handful of nurses in the UK to obtain this qualification and I am passionate about ways to help reduce your pets fear and stress in our veterinary clinic.

I have two dogs L.B (Little Boy) bull terrier cross and Bradley the Shih Tzu and spend most of my spare time either walking the dogs, training the dogs, training other peoples dogs or attending workshops about training dogs. I am a self confirmed crazy dog lady and love meeting new dogs and their owners every day.

I have been nursing in practice for over 15 years, 13 years of which I have been as a qualified Registered Veterinary Nurse. I have worked in a variety of different practices including an exotic practice where I have nursed anything from cat, dogs and rabbits to snakes, lizards and vultures (the list can go on)!

I have a very keen interest in feline nursing and how we can improve feline care whilst in practice and at home which I am looking to do further qualifications in. I enjoy nurse clinics and love meeting new pets and there two legged companions.

In 2012 I completed my Diploma in Advanced Veterinary Nursing to help me give all pets I see the best care I possibly can. I love every part of nursing and feel very honoured that people trust us with their most treasured fur babies on a daily basis.I look forward to meeting you all.
