Advanced services

We have invested considerably in our team and kit to make a number of advanced services available to our clients. We also accept referrals from other practices.

Orthopaedics and fracture repair

Our veterinary team have undertaken advanced training to allow us to perform orthopaedic surgery in our practice. If your pet develops an abnormality involving their skeleton or joints, such as elbow dysplasia, a patella (kneecap) that gets stuck, or a torn cruciate ligament, an orthopaedic procedure may help them.

Hello! I graduated in 2014 in Bucharest, Romania. After graduation I found a big attraction to Soft Tissue surgery and started to study Reconstructive surgery and Wound Management in 2015, as these are my main areas of interest. I have been to many veterinary surgical events in Europe, have written articles and have been involved in podcasts presenting different aspects about wound management. I also hold a Official Controls Qualification (Veterinary) OCQ(V), which allows me to sign passports, I acquired this in 2020. I obtained the PgCert/GPCert Small Animal Surgery in October 2022. And I start the GPCert Small Animal Oncology in May 2024. I came to the UK in June 2018 to work, and joined the Vets4Pets Lancaster team as lead vet in December 2021.

Hi everyone! I’m Valeria and I graduated from the University of Turin, in Italy, in 2020. I joined the Vets4Pets family in September 2021 as a veterinary surgeon and I am super enthusiastic about being able to improve animals’ welfare. Being a vet has always been my dream and on top of enjoying every aspect of medicine, I also love how sweet and funny pets can be.
In my spare time you can find me playing with and cuddling my ginger cat, Diego. I also love travelling (I know what you are thinking, who doesn’t?), going to the movies and spending time with family and friends.

Hello, I'm Cath and I joined the team here in September 2023. 

After starting my veterinary career in 2011 as a student veterinary nurse and progressed from there. I spent 8 years working in different practices across the UK from referral, charity and emergency out of hours as a Registered Veterinary Nurse before I decided to start studying again to become a veterinary surgeon- qualifying in June 2023. 

I enjoy first opinion practice and the variety of cases that come along with it, but also meeting and helping clients and their pets. It is very rewarding helping animals feel better again. I have keen interests in ultrasonography and emergency + critical care. 

Outside of work, I keep myself busy with horses, dogs, cats and chickens of my own, regularly competing both horses in showjumping and my collie at agility. I also compete in triathlons and enjoy keeping myself fit in the gym.

Hello! I’m Becky, one of the student veterinary nurses. I have been with the practice since February 2021 as an animal nursing assistant, and started my veterinary nursing training not long after. At home, I have 5 tarantulas, 2 guinea pigs; Tigger and Piglet, a Poochon called Knoxx, and an asthmatic Roborovski dwarf hamster named Hedwig. I love to spend my spare time with my animals and family, who refer to my house as ‘The Zoo’. My favourite thing about being a student nurse is seeing all the animals who come to see us; the big, small, weird, and wonderful, and of course all the puppy and kitten cuddles!

I have worked for Vets4Pets for around ten years now, originally recruited to open the Lytham practice. Since then I have worked in various practices both in England and Scotland front of house. The practice with the most diverse range of patients was Drumchapel in Glasgow where we tended to a huge snowy owl for a beak trim, an Iguana for removal of an abscess and George the pig who would come in store and eat whatever he could from the shelves.

This practice in Lancaster is by far the largest and busiest of all practices I have worked in, and I am looking forward to my role of Practice Administrator and getting to know everyone and the surrounding area of Lancaster.
