Sarah Thomas MRCVS

Practice Owner and Veterinary Surgeon

I qualified as a vet from Nottingham University and, together with Jenny, I am a partner at Rugby Central and Rugby Vets4Pets. I truly enjoy working with our wonderful team and meeting all the lovely pets and the owner’s that trust us to look after them.

My home life very much reflects my work life as I’m known for a being a bit of a soft touch and have acquired many waifs and strays through working as a vet, including Murphy, a Romanian Shepherd and numerous cats and guinea pigs.

Practice Owner and Veterinary Nurse

I am a joint venture partner in both Rugby Vets4Pets and Rugby Central Vets4Pets. I qualified with a degree in veterinary nursing in 2010 after 3 years of hands on training.  I joined Vets4Pets in 2012 when Rugby Vets4Pets opened on Bilton road.

The most enjoyable aspect of being a veterinary nurse for me is nursing a patient back to health and seeing them walk out the building happy and healthy.

Veterinary Surgeon

I’ve been a qualified vet for over 18 years now, I’m married with 2 children, a dog and a cat. I’m particularly interested in emergency and critical care and surgery.

I like working at Rugby Central Vets4Pets as I believe the store is a more interesting and less intimidating environment for pets to enter than traditional vet practices.

I started as a receptionist for Rugby Central Vets4Pets when we opened in October 2015. I feel lucky enough to be able to say I am now a part of a friendly and very professional team. I am also working towards a certificate in practice management.

Out of work I enjoy spending time with my nephew and I am currently learning to drive.
