Lincoln South Vets4Pets David Bull

David Bull
RCVS Advanced Practitioner (General Small Animal Surgery)

Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from the University of Liverpool in July 2007. I started my career at a mixed practice in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, treating all species and moved into small animal practice two years later, working at a large first opinion and referral practice in West Yorkshire until opening Vets4Pets Lincoln South.

I enjoy all aspects of small animal practice, but my main areas of interest are surgery and anaesthesia. To further these interests I have taken postgraduate training with a surgical bias and was awarded the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (General Small Animal Surgery) in 2014. As a result of this qualification and a commitment to continued training, I am recognised as an RCVS Advanced Practitioner in General Small Animal Surgery - for more information please visit the RCVS website here.

Lucy and I met at university. We got married in July 2013 and have moved to Lincoln to be closer to family. Lucy and I own a crossbreed dog called Nellie. We are fairly sure she is a whippet cross collie.

We enjoy running our own practice and want to maintain a ‘family feel’ to the surgery, whilst offering high clinical standards.

Lucy Bull BVSc MRCVS

Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2007 and moved to Leeds to work at a family run small animal practice. I am interested in general small animal medicine and surgery but have a stronger interest in medicine, particularly dermatology, cardiology and feline medicine. My favourite piece of equipment is my stethoscope! Used in nearly every consultation I do and one of the most valuable pieces of equipment we have in day to day practice.

I am originally from Lincoln and returned here, with David, to open Vets4Pets Lincoln South in 2014. In our spare time David and I love to take our dog, Nellie, on long walks. I am enjoying being back home in Lincolnshire and meeting our new clients and their pets!

Lucy Barton RVN

Senior Veterinary Nurse

I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2002 and spent a further 4 years working in a Small Animal Hospital. From here I spent 7 years working in an out-of-hours Emergency and Critical Care provider, where I became the Senior Veterinary Nurse and completed my Certificate of Veterinary Nursing in Emergency and Critical Care. More recently, I have lectured in various animal related disciplines and varying levels. I quickly missed the ‘hands-on’ of Veterinary Nursing and specifically the patient care while lecturing full time, so it was an easy decision for me to return to my passion this year. I have a keen interest in Animal Welfare and Behaviour and am very fortunate to be able to instigate many beneficial practices for our patients in a new and developing Veterinary Practice.

I love animals and my job has made it very easy to collect a few waifs and strays over the years! I currently have 3 dogs (Izzy, Nellie and Tilly) and 2 cats (Alfie and Ellie) who are thoroughly loved and spoilt! In my spare time I enjoying keeping fit and pushing myself physically. I take pleasure in walking my dogs, baking and reading.

Samantha Patrick RVN

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I graduated from Newcastle upon Tyne University in 2004 after completing a BSc Domesticated Animal Science degree. I then went on to work as a Veterinary Receptionist and Trainee Veterinary Nurse until completing a FdSc Veterinary Nursing degree in 2011. I joined Vets4Pets in July 2014 after working as a Veterinary Nurse for an out-of-hours emergency and critical care provider.

My spare time is taken up looking after our two young sons. As a family we especially enjoy swimming, biking and walking our Jack Russell Terrier Mylo.

Kirsty Little RVN

Registered Veterinary Nurse

Hi, my name is Kirsty. I am a registered Veterinary Nurse and graduated from Edinburgh Napier University with a BSc (Hons) in 2014. I have worked at Vet4Pets for nearly 2 years now, I previously lived in Scotland but have relocated to be with my Fiance who is a fire fighter in the RAF.

I currently do not have any pets but growing up there was always pets in the house ranging from cats and dogs to hamsters and budgies and even a tortoise. I enjoy building bonds with both animals and their owners and believe a friendly face can make a difference in times of need.

When time allows I enjoy kayaking, rock climbing and making cards and jewellery.

Veterinary Care Assistant

I am a Veterinary Care Assistant and I wanted to work for Vets4Pets as I have always dreamt of working with animals. I started here in February 2014 when the surgery first opened. I enjoy the job because I love meeting our clients and their pets. It is a very rewarding role, especially seeing pets going home all healthy again after their operations.

I have a 2 month old Dwarf Lop Rabbit called Lola as well as 2 dogs: Harry a 3 Year Old Labrador X New Zealand Huntaway and Buster a 6 month old Boxer.

In my spare time, I love to go horse riding and taking the dogs out for long walks, as well as attending Agility & Flyball classes.

I recently joined the team at Vets4Pets in June 2014 as a part time receptionist. Working with animals is something I have always wanted to do and I am enjoying meeting all the pets and their owners and getting to know them. I have a gorgeous 2 year old Lhasa Apso called Oscar and an 11 year old tortoise called Albert. In my spare time I enjoy gardening, cooking and going on long walks with Oscar.

I began working for the company at the Oxford surgery when it first opened in 2010. Since then, I have moved to Lincoln, graduated from The University of Lincoln with a BSc (Hons) Animal Behaviour Science, moved on to study the MSc in Clinical Animal Behaviour, and of course, am now part of the lovely team here at Vets4Pets Lincoln South.

In my free time I assist with puppy classes and various animal behaviour projects at the university. I also enjoy making new games for my Lurcher, Rue, who I adopted while volunteering at a rescue centre. He is always up for a challenge!
