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.

Laser therapy

Laser therapy is non-painful and involves directing infra-red radiation into inflamed or damaged tissues to accelerate the body’s natural healing process. It is often used for musculoskeletal issues such as arthritis, but the benefits of laser have been suggested for a range of conditions.

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  4dogs, 2 cats and 4 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

Head Veterinary Surgeon

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 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”

My name is Paisley and I qualified in 2015. I have an interest in small animal medicine, gaining a post graduate certificate in 2021. I gained the RCVS Advanced Practitioner Status in medicine in 2023, meaning that I have demonstrated knowledge and experience in this area beyond my initial primary degree. I try to keep as up to date as possible with all the new and relevant diagnostic tests and treatments, to offer the best for all of your pets. Outside of work I have a young son who likes to keep me on my toes. I love to ride and have a horse called Havannah.

"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."

Client Care Advisor

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!
