What is your favourite animal and why? Its impossible to decide between dogs and cats, having one of each I feel I couldn't decide between them! I love how aloof cats can be so you feel privileged when they decide you are worthy of their attention... but I love how dogs love you unconditionally! What pets do you have and what are their names? I have a cat called Mango, and a Lurcher called Luke What's the best pet name that you've ever come across? Mud the Springer Spaniel What's the best aspect of working for Vets4Pets? I love meeting everyone's pets and getting to know them. Being a small practice its nice being able to see the same pets regularly and to see their progress. I also work with the best team of nurses and reception staff!

What is your favourite animal and why? 
It's a tough choice! My favourite domestic pet is probably the dog. I love their loyalty and dependency, and their ability to always be happy and excitable to see you even if you have only left the room for a second!  

What pets do you have and what are their names? 
At the moment I have one cat, an 11 year old Russian Blue called Jack. He's quite the character and certainly has some more doggy characteristics. He much prefers to be indoors and around human company, he even uses the human toilet!

What's the best pet name that you've ever come across? 
Droolius Caesar, a very loveable but very slobbery St. Bernard

What's the best aspect of working for Vets4Pets? 
I started here in November 2017 after leaving a large 8 vet practice. Initially being sole charge seemed daunting but I absolutely love the clients and their pets that we have here in this lovely community, it's great to see the same faces and to be able to build up a really fab rapport Of course the rest of the team here at Bishopston are great too, which certainly adds to the enjoyment of the job!

What is your favourite animal and why? Cats - as they are independent in some ways but then very affectionate in others. In the veterinary industry, some cats can be labelled as nasty and evil when they are merely misunderstood. I have learnt a lot about cat behaviour over the years and this has made me love them even more. What pets do you have and what are their names? I have one very spoilt cat called Ashalea, who I Adopted from Bristol and Wales Cat Rescue! What's the best pet name that you've ever come across? Tiny, when it’s a 60kg Rottweiler. What's the best aspect of working for Vets4Pets? The support you have around you from the other teams and the lovely clients we have in this great community.

What is your favourite animal and why? 

My favourite animals are rabbits (big surprise) as I love the way they express happiness, can’t beat a binky and they are so cute and have a lot of personality. Dogs are just as much my favourite for their playfulness and intelligence.

What pets do you have and what are their names?

Two bunnies, Willow and Woody who are a year old.

What's the best pet name that you've ever come across? 

The best animal name I’ve come across was this morning, a spaniel called Super Potato

What's the best aspect of working for Vets4Pets? 

The best aspect of working for Vets4Pets is building good relationships with regular clients and their pets and being able to do all parts of nursing.

What is your favourite animal and why?
The Labrador dog. Having had the pleasure of trying to manage two naughty black labs (Orton & Charlie) for 14 years - both who lived by the motto: ‘good is for guide dogs’ - I was left believing the Labrador truly is the king of dogs. 

What pets do you have and what are their names? 
An adorable rescue Jack Russell Cross, called Toby (pictured here pre-dental treatment!) and a multitude of fishes.

What's the best pet name that you've ever come across? 
Wally and Moose, my best friends beautiful chocolate Labradors. And, Bert and Ernie, my other best friends equally beautiful Labradors. There’s a lot of labs in my life.

What's the best aspect of working for Vets4Pets? 
That’s easy: the lovely patients, clients and team. Before joining Bishopston Vets4pets, I was a client at the practice; I was always impressed by the care, compassion and professionalism we received by the all the team. So much so, I approached Rosie to ask if I could join them and the rest is history...

What is your favourite animal and why? 
Guinea Pigs because they have amazing personalities. They love to be handled and are very communicative. They are great in pairs because they talk to each other and even purr! They are also the ideal pet for children as they are a bit more robust than rabbits and smaller furies and are relatively easy to look after. When they are excited they do a weird little jump that is aptly called ‘pop corning’!

What pets do you have and what are their names?  
I have a crazy cat called Pushkin aka ‘The Magnificent Mr Pushkin – All Hail the Tail’. He has an awesome tail like a squirrel and he thinks he’s a Russian Prince. He came from Bristol and Wales Cat Rescue and spent a few days here at work where I fell in love with him and inevitably took him home! He spends his days giving me dodgy looks and everything is on his terms. 

What's the best pet name that you've ever come across?I love retro boys names! Gary, Colin and Jason are amazing names! 

What's the best aspect of working for Vets4Pets?  
Despite Vets4Pets being a huge company, we are a franchise and there aren’t actually that many of us here. We work very hard as a team and thankfully get on really well. As I live locally I also seem to know most of our Bishopston clients so it’s always lovely to have a chat and a fuss of their animals.

None at the moment - when I move somewhere bigger I want cats again.

A cat named Cindy Clawford 

What's the best aspect of working for Vets4Pets? 
Getting to meet and look after people's pets is the best bit. I also love to be able to solve problems for people and quite enjoy doing the insurance claims.
