Elijah Mbuthia

Veterinary Surgeon & Partner

My name is Elijah. I have been a vet for about 22 years working in research and in busy first opinion veterinary hospitals abroad and in the UK. I am passionate about internal medicine and soft tissue surgery.

I live in Northolt with my family. Proud father to 2 teenage daughters and an adopted 3 year old cat named Tiger. Outside of work, I love nature walks, cross country jogging, reading and DIY carpentry, tiling, painting etc. Apart from English, I speak four other languages but I’m still trying to learn new ‘pet languages’.

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I have always wanted to be a veterinary nurse and have worked in veterinary practices since I was 16 years old. My journey started as a Patient Care Assistant with another surgery where I was given the opportunity to go to college to study as a Student Nurse. I continued my studies and qualified as a registered veterinary nurse in august 2017.

I live at home with my two young sons and fiancée. We currently own love birds, a parakeet, a corn snake, tortoises, rabbits, fish, cats and a dog. In our spare time we also pet sit creatures of all shapes and sizes.

Veterinary Care Assistant

As long as I can remember my home has been filled with animals which sparked my love for them if the first place. I am currently working as a veterinary care assistant and love being hands on with the animals which my job allows me to do. I have previous gained experience in other vet practises and having pets of my own has certainly helped me along the way.

I have an American Akita called Yuki and a miniature Schnauzer called Fifi along with owning some previous animals from parrots to fish and many more. In my spare time I like to play volleyball and I’m a bit of a book worm.

Having previously worked as a team leader in medical sales and space, range and merchandising. I now enjoy my time doing something completely different working here at the Vets4Pets surgery as a receptionist and learning about animals and their wellbeing.

I have always had pets from a young age and currently own 3 cats Alfie, Ollie and Louie who love dreamies and enjoy leaving me ‘presents’ on my doorstep when I get home along with 1 rabbit, 1 hamster, fish and 5 guinea pigs. I have a fiancé and two grown up daughters, who I enjoy spending time with as well as socialising with friends.

My name is Chloe. You may have seen me around previously working with Pets at Home. I also gained valuable animal handing experience working abroad and in rescue centres before joining the Vets4Pets Ruislip Team. I currently have a Staffordshire bull terrier, Buddy, Chihuahua named Mia and a rescue kitten, Leo. In the past I have had pet snakes and many different reptiles. In my spare time I love spending time in the outdoors with my dogs as they keep me busy and relaxing at home with my fiancé.

I’ve always had a love for animals ever since I was little, which is why I applied to be a veterinary receptionist. I currently have a Golden Retriever called Koda, a Kooikerhondje called Loki and an African Grey Parrot called Blue. I also live with a rescue cat called Ninja and 2 leopard geckos called Lemon and Lime. I also regularly puppy sit 4 dogs, a Husky Boxer mix, 2 Shih Tzu poodle mixes and a Westie.

Growing up I had a lot of experience caring for animals as my mother was a dog breeder who bred pedigree golden retrievers so the house was always full of animals including my other pets which included an African grey parrot, cockatiels, 2 rescue cats, rabbits, hamsters, Indian runner ducks, tropical fish, stick insects and rats.
