Nuno Gomes MRCVS

Head Veterinary Surgeon

Hello my name is Nuno and I am the head veterinary surgeon at Vets4Pets Thurrock. I graduated from University of Extremadura  in Spain and worked in several practices across Portugal before moving to the UK in 2011. 

Since then I've been working in several small animal practices and my interests are general surgery and ultrasonography. In my spare time I love running, watching movies and travelling.


Dipty Mahind

Practice Manager

I am a vet by profession and have decided to pursue my career as a practice manager. I qualified as a vet in the year 2000 and since then worked as a vet for short duration in a small animal clinic and for 5 years in an equine hospital. I've completed my graduate certificate in business management and professional key skills in the year 2010 and I'm a certificate holder of European School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies.

I'm excited to be a part of the team at Vets4Pets Thurrock and looking forward to coming back to work after taking a long break to raise the kids.

My favourite pet is a cat and outside work I'm interested in cooking, movies, music and spending time with my husband and kids.

Clinical Head Nurse

I joined Vets4Pets as a Veterinary Nurse in April 2015, I've worked in the veterinary profession since leaving school and trained as an Animal Nursing Assistant before qualifying as a Veterinary Nurse in 2010.

I enjoy the diversity of being a Veterinary Nurse in particular the challenges and rewards it brings each day. I have a particular interest in radiography and dog training & behaviour.

I live at home with my two dogs, Marley my 5 year old Labrador Retriever and Nemo my 2 year old Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever (in picture) I participate in various dog sports with both my dogs including Obedience, Agility, Dock Diving as well as being part of a Dog Display team.

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2016 and I am very excited to further my career as an RVN.

I have been in practice since leaving school, first gaining my Veterinary Care Assistant qualification and have been Nursing ever since.

I enjoy all aspects of being a Veterinary Nurse particularly looking after inpatients and assisting with surgery. Being a Nurse is very rewarding and I love seeing all of the different cases. I aim in the future to progress into feline nursing and become and Emergency & Critical Care Nurse.

I’ve got 3 family dogs, Teddy, Angel & Jessie. I have a cat called Rosie who I brought home with me from my last practice when she was found as a baby with cat flu. I made her better and now she loves to explore and snuggle for cuddle on your lap.

Abigail Martin VCA

Student Veterinary Nurse

I started here at Vets4pets Thurrock in August 2015 as a Veterinary Care Assistant after previously working the same role at a different practice. My ambition has always been to work with animals, mainly dreaming of working in the line of rescue. I studied at Writtle College after school, working at a local groomers for 3yrs, later progressing to my previous practice for almost 2yrs which I loved, and ultimately decided that the veterinary industry was for me. I hope to attend college once more in 2016 to train to be a Registered Veterinary Nurse, which I am more than a little excited about!

I have a family dog, Golden Retriever, Basil, who has seen me through many important years of my life from a 9yr old girl to a now 23yr old woman, and he's still alive and kicking! He left a huge whole in my heart when I left the nest with my partner to a house of our own, living with his Border Collie cross Cassie, my 2 new babies domestic moggies Jeffrey and Morris and of course my Citrus Bearded Dragon, Spike.

In my own time I love cooking, kitty cuddles, nap times, the great outdoors, chatting with friends and cuddling up in front of the box for a good long film fest!

I joined Vets4Pets as a part time Receptionist in March 2015.

I have never worked within in the veterinary industry before but I have a huge passion for animals and to work with animals of all varieties is an honour and a privilege. I love all animals but I have a special affection for Siamese and Oriental Cats.

When I am not at work I am a single mum to two wonderful little girls, who keep me very busy. Currently we don’t have any pets of our own, but hopefully one day we can change that and adopt a few cats and dogs. I think it’s very valuable for a child to learn the importance of animal welfare, and the responsibility of how to keep an animal happy and healthy.

Julie Hunt

Head Receptionist

I have worked in the veterinary profession, as a nursing assistant, since leaving school 27years ago. I joined vets4pets Thurrock June 2015 as part of their reception team as I liked the idea of joining a new and fresh surgery.

I enjoy meeting and greeting clients and their pets and hopefully help make them feel at ease when they visit us.

At home I have 6 cats, ranging from 16years to a 9 week old new addition, and my daughter also has 3 rats. My spare time is mainly spent socialising with my family and friends, reading and looking after my furry babies.
