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!

Claire Croft BVM&S MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from the University of Edinburgh in July 2004, and started my career working at a large mixed practice in rural Suffolk. After three years there, I spent some time working as a locum vet, both around the UK and abroad. Particular highlights included working for a small animal practice in Auckland, and volunteering for a charity neutering cats on the tiny Pacific island of Aitutaki. I moved to Lincoln in 2009, where I met my husband, Mark, and have lived here ever since. I joined the team here at Vets4Pets Lincoln South in January 2017, and am enjoying getting to know all of our clients and their pets.

Professionally, I enjoy all aspects of first opinion practice, but have a particular interest in feline medicine. I have two small boys, as well as a Springer Spaniel called Suzie and a cat called Friday, who keep me busy when I'm not at work. I enjoy walking, family days out, and, when I get the chance, getting lost in a good book.

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.

I joined Vets4Pets in February 2014, having been with the practice since opening. I have a keen interest in Animal Welfare and Behaviour and have been very fortunate in being able to instigate many beneficial practices for our patients in a new and developing Veterinary Practice. I have recently completed my International Society of Feline Medicine Certificate in Feline Friendly Nursing and hope to implement many more welfare-friendly changes for our feline patients.

I also lecture part-time on the BSc Hons Bioveterinary Science degree at the University of Lincoln; at the College of Animal Welfare and on Animal Aiders Canine First Aid courses for pet owners, which I enjoy immensely.

 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 1 cat (Alfie) 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, knitting and reading.

I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2006 and graduated with BSc (Hons) Veterinary Nursing and Practice Management in 2007. I have worked in a variety of practices from general practice to a veterinary hospital dealing with small animals, farm animals and horses. I have also worked with a variety of zoo animals such as lions and zebras.

I joined Vets4Pets in June 2016 following maternity leave after having my son. I have a particular interest in animal behaviour and oral care. I have completed the BVNA Certificate in Small Animal Behaviour and BVNA Oral Care Nursing. I am doing further training in Schedule 3 Surgical Procedures as I enjoy surgical nursing.

At home I have 2 cats that I rescued called Beinz and Oddi and a Labrador named Chunk.


Sarah Howe DipAVN(small animal) RVN

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2010 after discovering my passion for vet nursing during work experience at school. I also completed the advanced veterinary nurse diploma in 2016 with special interests in medical nursing, wound care and radiography.

Out of work I am a cub scout leader and married to the explorer leader so lots of our time is spent outdoors camping, hiking and most of all cooking on open fires. Lupulus is our rescue border terrier who enjoys running, woofing and getting into mischief. He camps and hikes but enjoys his home comforts too.

Caroline Fedyszyn RVN

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2017. I decided to train as a veterinary nurse after working with primates at various animal rescue centres. I am looking forward to broadening my knowledge in a wide variety of subjects. I am particularly interested in animal nutrition and enjoy running puppy training classes here at the clinic.

In my spare time I enjoy travelling, running, yoga and other physical activities. At home I have a bearded dragon called Pixie and British short hair called Bradley.

Ashleigh Hocking

Receptionist/Veterinary Care Assistant

I have been working for Vets4Pets since February 2017. I have always had a huge interest in all animals and thoroughly enjoy spending time with them. Since working here I have done a Pet First Aid Training course to help triage our patients. I am also the practices Pet Protection squad Star, this involves me focusing on all our patients’ preventative healthcare and finding ways we can improve. I hope to train as a Veterinary Nurse in the near future. My favourite thing to do day to day is meet all our lovely clients and their precious animals. I tend to steal them for a little while for a cuddle.

I have 3 dogs at home and a rabbit, who I swear is a dog trapped in a rabbit’s body. In my spare time I love spending time with my family and friends and fun days out. My 4 pets tend to keep me busy when I’m not working.

I joined the Vets4Pets team in May 2018 to pursue my career in working with animals. I have a diploma in animal behaviour and welfare, which I studied at Chester University, this covered a vast array of animal handling and husbandry over a variety of animals.

At home I am a proud father of two. My family also extends to two lovable Jack Russell’s, Mia and Tess, two guinea pigs and a large 450L tropical aquarium, all of which keep me very busy.
