Libby Shires RVN

Head Nurse

I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2013, after working in practice since leaving school in 2008. 

Before starting at Waterlooville Vets4Pets, I was lucky enough to work at Fitzpatrick Referrals. I enjoy anaesthesia and surgery based tasks. 

I also enjoy going to the gym and on dog walks with my Pug X Jack Russell Terrrier, Tula.

Jill looks forward to meeting all the new patients, particularly having cuddles with all the new puppies and kittens.
