I qualified as a vet in 2011, and have been working in small animal practice since. For the last 5 years, I have been working as locum around Nottinghamshire, including covering holidays here at Sutton-in-Ashfield Vets4Pets. I finally decided it was time to settle down in one place again and took the job here as Head Veterinary Surgeon. I’ve brought lots of ideas with me from the many practices I’ve worked at, to ensure your pets will receive the best care possible! My main interests are anaesthesia, pain management and surgery.
I live with my husband, our 12 year old Kelpie, and 2 cats, and we have a 2 year old daughter who likes to boss us all around. We enjoy camping, hiking and travelling whenever we can.

I am one of the practice partners here at Sutton in Ashfield Vets4Pets. I have worked for Vets4Pets since 2012, initially at Mansfield Vets4Pets before setting up my own practice here in Sutton in Ashfield in 2014. I was also a practice partner at Kirkby in Ashfield Vets4Pets for 19 months but I chose to leave my partnership there to concentrate solely on Sutton in Ashfield Vets4Pets. I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Exotic Animal Practice so I regularly treat exotic pets and I'm proud to say that our practice is a Gold accredited rabbit friendly practice as awarded by the RWAF. I also have particular interests in small animal medicine, cardiology and dermatology.

 

At home I have 5 dogs (a border collie and four spaniels), 2 cats and 3 rabbits. I've had various other pets over time including chickens, guinea pigs, hamsters, fish and caged birds. I am often seen with resident hedgehogs at my home that are either too small to hibernate, or are being rehabilitated due to illness. 

 

In my spare time I enjoy walking the dogs, eating out and gardening

I graduated as a Veterinary Surgeon from the University of Nottingham in Summer 2020. But as a vet student I spent several weeks on placement here at Sutton in Ashfield and also spent time as a Veterinary Care Assistant, so you may have seen me around!
I am really enjoying all aspects of the job, but particularly enjoy surgery.
I live with my husband and my Cocker Spaniel called Ringo”

“Hi! My name is Juan Luis, and I come from Alicante, Spain. I studied veterinary medicine in Barcelona and have been working as a veterinary surgeon since I graduated in 2018. I have special interest in Exotic Pet Medicine and I have worked exclusively with exotic pets for about two and a half years, but I also love dogs and cats.

Back in Spain I have two beautiful senior dogs and a tortoise. I mostly like to spend my free time listening to or playing music, spending time with friends and travelling as much as I can!”

"I qualified as a Nurse in 2016 but I've been with Vets4Pets since 2011 working at various different practices. I joined Sutton in Ashfield Vets4Pets in 2018 as Head Nurse. I absolutely love this practice and the team that make it, so was over the moon when I was asked to become partner JVP in 2019 alongside Stephanie.

 

I love general Veterinary Nursing but I have a keen interest in inpatient care and Nurse consultations. Particularly weight management and dental health, but I help to run a variety of other clinics. I am also a trained Pet Health Counsellor. I absolutely love hedgehogs (and wildlife) and I'm often rehabilitating them!

 

At home, I have a wonderful little boy called Henry, 3 dogs (German Shepherd cross called Max, Belgium Shepherd called Marley and a Labradoodle called Barney) and two guinea pigs called Jaffa and Fudge."

“I joined the team in 2018 on reception after graduating from Nottingham Trent University with a degree in Equine Sports Science. Since then I have been lucky enough to undertake a Veterinary Nursing apprenticeship, with the practice through, Bottle Green Training and will qualify as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in summer 2022.

I love working in general practice and like how varied work is from day to day but I do have particular interests in Emergency, critical and in-patient care. I also enjoy carrying out nurse consultations and being able to build a good relationship with our clients and their pets.

At home I have two cats, Tilly and Nacho, as well as a pony called Wiggles. In my spare time I like to go out competing with Wiggles, go hiking and spend weekends away camping.”

I joined team Vets4Pets Sutton-in-Ashfield back in September 2019 as a Client Care Advisor after graduating from University. I have adored animals since I can remember and have had a variety of different pets when I was younger but I do have to admit that I am dog obsessed, particularly Golden Retrievers! I have 3; Gunner, Lotty and Topper. I also have 2 rescue bunnies, Hovis-Loaf and Horlicks.

I’m always up for a fury snuggle but if you bring a Golden Retriever in to the practice, well, you had better prepare for cuddle chaos!

My favourite part of the job is the relationships you build up with longstanding owners and their pets, you get to be a small part of their life year after year. I love meeting new fur-babies and will absolutely want a cuddle. "

'I started working at Vets4pets Sutton-in-Ashfield in April 2016, I love meeting all the fur babies and their owners (Young and Old!). I left to go to Mansfield V4Ps for a couple of years, & had my little boy who’s 2 in September (2022), Axel.

 

I started back at Sutton Vets4pets in June 2021, I love seeing all the owners and still being a part of their life even after a couple of years of being at the Mansfield branch. I’m looking forward to see what the future hold and welcoming more owners and their pets to our practice. I also love being back with the old team and working together again!

 

I look forward to welcoming you and your fur babies soon:)'
