Joanna Manby BVSc BSc (Hons) MRCVS VNPA

  

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

My name is Jo Manby and I'm the new partner and veterinary surgeon at Vets4Pets Woolwell. I live in Lvybridge with my partner Roger and two sons; 4 year old William and 1 year old Edward. I have a menagerie of animals; Ellie an excitable cockapoo, a tabby cat called Bruce, a Siamese called Saffie, a Ragdoll called Madison an English-Dutch cross rabbit called Gold, a giant continental rabbit called Alfred and 3 guinea pigs called Whinnie, Boo and Gandalf. 

In my spare time I enjoy exploring the Devon countryside with my family but also like to keep active by jogging and playing netball. At work I have a special interest in rabbits and small furries and enjoy the challenges of different surgical procedures.

Leanne Burton RVN

Registered Veterinary Nurse

Leanne qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 2008 and joined the team in July 2014. In her spare time she loves baking & enjoys keeping fit. In 2013 she completed the Coniston Challenge which consisted of a 1 mile Kayak of Coniston water, 10k hike of Old Man of Coniston & 12k mountain bike ride through Grizdale Forrest.

Leanne has 4 cats who are called Collin, Winston, Pricilla & Narla. She also has a Siberian Husky called Lottie who everyone mistakes for a 6 month old puppy as she is tiny. She loves all her animals but also loves interacting with clients’ pets at work.

A Dachshund Miniature called Slinky.
