Fiona Grief

Veterinary Surgeon

Originally from Somerset, I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 2012. After moving to Rugby I worked in large animal practice for 3 years before realising it's much warmer and dryer working with small animals inside!

I have a keen interest in surgery and shall be undertaking a certificate in small animal surgery in the future. 

I have a black Labrador called May, who many clients will have met in the practice. Outside of work I regularly travel back to Somerset to visit family and friends, taking part and judging their carnival season.

Michelle Peedell

Registered Veterinary Nurse

This job is ensuring pets and clients receive the best possible care and consideration.

What is your favourite animal and why?
My favourite animal has always been the meerkat, from a young age I have been intrigued and inspired by their endless curiosity and boundless energy, and of course I love their cute faces! 

What pets do you have and what are their names?
I have one very cheeky chappie, a cat (although he doesn’t think so!) called bob. I rescued him from my last veterinary practice – definitely a perk of the job! 

What's the best pet name that you've ever come across?
Peggy the three legged cat – she was a sweetheart 

What is your favourite famous animal?
It has to be Tigger from Winnie The Pooh, always there helping out with boundless bouncing! 

What's the best aspect of working for Vets4Pets?
I especially enjoy having an experienced and qualified team in which we can learn from each other and share experiences and the odd cream cake! I also love the support you have from the Vets4Pets team especially IT as I’m no computer tech! This allows me to concentrate on the pets in our care.

Lucy Harris

Receptionist

I joined the Rugby Vets4Pets team at the end of May 2016. As receptionist I am your first point of call when you visit the practice, and the friendly voice at the end of the phone. 

I am a busy mum at home and have a dog called poppy. In the spare time that I get I'm interested in interior design and catering for weddings/parties.

Lydia Hollamby

Receptionist

Originally from New Zealand, I moved to England in the summer of 2015. I have a keen interest in animals having studied animal care in New Zealand. You will find me working alongside Lucy on reception but I also lend a hand out the back if the nurses are busy. 

Outside of work I have recently brought a house in Rugby, so a lot of my time is spent decorating! I have two cats called Griselda Blanco and Putin.
