Meet the Rustington vet team

Jose M V4P Rustington.png

Jose Monreal MRCVS

Joint Venture Partner & Veterinary Surgeon

I am the Joint Venture Partner at Vets4Pets Chichester and Rustington together with Luis Seco). I graduated from Vet School in Spain in 1996. By 1998 I was already in UK; I became a partner with Companion Care in 2000 at Yorkshire. Luis and I then became the partners in Vets4Pets Rustington in 2010 and finally we became the Partners of Vets4Pets Chichester in 2014.

At work I enjoy interacting with both the pets and their owners. I am passionate about Animal Welfare, and will always look out for the best interest of the patient. Technically I enjoy Internal Medicine; I have extra qualifications in this field and I am currently pursuing even more!

Out of work at home I am quite laid back enjoying television, reading, revising veterinary literature and spending time with my great pets. But when I am on holiday I like to be active and will spend most of them either running, climbing/descending mountains or even better combining all three in one!

Luis Seco MRCVS

Joint Venture Partner & Veterinary Surgeon

I came to England in 1997 after graduating in Spain in 1996. I worked in various practices before joining Vets4Pets in 2001. After managing the Vets4Pets branch in Leeds, with Jose for almost 10 years, we decided to look for a bigger surgery. 

We found Rustington which I managed and Chichester, managed by Jose. Both surgeries have continued to grow and now in Rustington we are able to offer a 24 hour service to look after our clients and inpatients, this has been a long time ambition. 

At work I favour surgery and Orthopaedic cases, not missing a chance to assist and work with any of the specialists who visit our surgery, to deal with challenging cases that we have. This gives me the opportunity to continue to improve my skills and knowledge in those fields. 

I have recently embarked on a post-graduate study in Ophthalmology. 

When not at work, I'll head to the mountains, high or low...

Marta Martinez MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

Hello, I am Marta. I qualified in Madrid back in 2002. After working for more than 10 years with small animals around the Madrid area, I decided that England will give me a better opportunity to develop my professional skills and to do what I like most, which is looking after our great small animals companions (Failing that, I also like Gardening and cooking). So here I am...

Jose Miguel Costo MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated in 2008 from the University of Madrid, and immediately started a three year internship, mainly specialising in internal medicine. I then moved to the Mediterranean Coast to work in a referral hospital for a few years before deciding to move to the UK. 

I have been working at Vets4Pets Rustington since and I am currently one of the senior vets. I combine my clinical work with periodic internships, attending conferences and I am currently working towards my certificate in internal medicine. Whilst not working, I am most likely reading, watching tennis or planning my next adventure travelling around the world.

I finished my studies in 2013 in Lugo, Spain, where I did a one year rotating internship. I spent three years improving my vet skills working in a small animal practice. After that, I decided England will give me the opportunity to continue developing my knowledge.

Outside of work I love travelling, watching TV series and spending time with my two dogs (a huge Labrador and a tiny Chihuahua.)

I finished my studies in 2016 in Czech Republic, but I come from Cyprus. I have always wanted to work in the UK so as soon as I finished my studies i made the dream come true. 

In the future, I would like to develop my professional skills in imaging. 

 When I'm not at work, I pick a place on the map to visit.

Alejandra Palomo - MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

After qualifying in 2009, i worked in Malaga, my home town, for nearly 4 years. During this time I worked in a dog shelter as well as an out of hours small animal hospital. 

I always wanted to go away for a while and learn another language, so I decided that it was time to try something different. As the British people are known for their love of animals I decided the UK was where I wanted to start my adventure. 

I joined Rustington Vets4Pets in 2015 and love it here. I hope to start my certificate in surgery soon. In my free time I enjoy walking my two little dogs on the beach or in the woods.

I then came to the UK because I wanted to work abroad. Now I am dedicated to emergency care which I find really interesting and satisfying. 

In my free time I really enjoy playing and kind of sports, visiting wild places and definitely travelling as much as I can.

I began working here ten years ago and after completing my nursing training I left to teach at a local Agricultural College for a number of years.

Small animal practice is where my heart lies though and I am delighted to be back for some much needed fur therapy. 

I have two loopy Cocker Spaniels, a Ragdoll cat and a horse to keep me busy when I'm not at work. Away from the animals, I love going to the gym which is needed to counterbalance my other passion, eating out!

I started at Vets4Pets 2 years ago, as the weekend receptionist. 

I hope to begin working as a veterinary care assistant in the near future with this possibly leading onto beginning my veterinary nursing training. 

I have several pets of my own and recently adopted another a stray kitten, Dolly, and I've completely fallen in love with her. 

In addition, I have three other cats, two elderly dogs and one guinea pig. Although it's hard work looking after them all, they are all most definitely worth it.
