Stephanie Smith

Veterinary Surgeon & Joint Venture Partner

I am a Veterinary Surgeon and one of the practice partners here at Vets4Pets Sutton in Ashfield. I have worked at Vets4pets for the past 3 years, initially at Mansfield Vets4Pets before setting up my own practice here in Sutton. Prior to this I worked at a Veterinary Practice in Derby. 

I enjoy all aspects of my job but I have a particular interest in small animal medicine and dermatology. I love my small furry patients especially rabbits and piggies! I have 3 dogs (a Border Collie, a Cocker Spaniel and a Sprocker), 1 cat, 3 rabbits, 5 guinea pigs, 1 hamster, 2 zebra finches and lots of chickens! In my spare time I enjoy walking the dogs, camping and going swimming when I have the time!

I studied Veterinary Nursing at Bottle Green Training in Melbourne, Derbyshire and qualified in 2007. I have worked for Vets4Pets since May 2010 before deciding to open up Sutton In Ashfield Vets4Pets with Stephanie in 2014. In February 2017 we opened our 2nd practice in Kirkby In Ashfield.

I am married to Stefan and have two beautiful boys called Leo & Charlie. I have a horse, 3 French Bulldogs, 5 cats, a gerbil, fish and lots of reptiles! In my spare time I enjoy riding my horse and spending time with my family.

Veterinary Surgeon

I am a Veterinary Surgeon and have recently joined the team at Sutton in September 2016. I am originally from South Wales and love going home to see my family and spend time at the beach. 

I enjoy all of my job especially getting to meet lots of people and their pets everyday. I would like to specialise later in my career but can't decide what in yet! 

I have no pets of my own at the moment as my beautiful Lab x and handsome horse recently passed away but I can't wait to have a house filled with animals again. In my spare time I like to horse ride, do outdoor activities and go on lots of holidays!

Veterinary Surgeon

I am a Qualified Veterinary Surgeon from Spain. Since finishing my degree I started to work in a Veterinary Hospital which I enjoyed thoroughly. After that, I had the opportunity to come to England for an internship in Leeds. I was working there up until December 2015 when I started work at Vets4Pets. 

At Vets4Pets everyday is challenging and rewarding, my workmates are very friendly and hard-working. I really enjoy doing CPDs and I also like puppy and kitten consults. In the future I would like to specialise in Neurology. 

Back in a Spain my best friend was my pet dog called Kiko who sadly passed away but I have recently adopted a pet Hamster from Pets at Home who I have named Rosie.

Student Veterinary Nurse

I studied animal management before embarking on my career as a Student Veterinary Nurse with Vets4Pets Sutton in Ashfield. At home I live with my fiancé, son and dog Coco who I met roaming the streets whilst on holiday in Turkey. She was one expensive mongrel! I have longed to work with animals for many years and had a change of career later in life.

I absolutely love my job and have lots of love to give all the animals that come into the practice.

I started as a receptionist at Vets4Pets in April 2016 after working at a hairdressers in Kirkby for 3 years. I have a passion for all animals as well as being creative with hair. I enjoy meeting new animals and hearing about the mischievous stories of what they get up to. I have already learnt so much more about animals in the short space of time I have been with Vets4Pets. I currently still live at home with my Mum and Dad, 2 dogs Lexy & Kizzy, my cat Kitkat, Bunni the rabbit and 4 chickens. If I could have a house full of animals I would!
