Weymouth Vets4Pets Vikki Stoddart

Vikki Stoddart

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I am originally from Shropshire in the West Midlands and I always had a strong passion for animals. After completing the National Certificate of Veterinary Care Assistants in 2007, I studied two more years for the National Diploma of Animal Management. This was followed by the Foundation Degree of Veterinary Nursing at Harper Adams University, qualifying in 2012.

Since then I have gained experience at a Vets4Pets practice and a Veterinary Hospital; I also worked for a short time at Pets at Home in Dorchester, before starting at Vets4Pets in Weymouth.

I have had a wide variety of pets in the past: gerbils, leopard geckos, rats and dogs. At the family home I helped look after hedgehogs and other wildlife, and during college I also worked at an exotics pet shop, mainly taking care of snakes and lizards.

Currently at home my boyfriend and I have a young Sprocker Spaniel called Toby, who just loves playing at the park with a tennis ball and long walks in the countryside and by the sea.
