I have been in practice for over 16 years, eight of which I spent in a seaside town in North Somerset. I am interested in all aspects of small animal medicine and surgery although I have indulged my special interest in orthopaedics. I have varied experience in general practice work including emergency care. I have accrued bags of knowledge through professional development programmes from reputable institutions such as the North American Veterinary Conference (NAVC), BSAVA and Western Veterinary Conference (WVC). I am an avid reader and such a keen learner. I have recently acquired a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) with the Open University (UK). I like having a laugh as the day progresses. I enjoy travelling and football. At home I am owned by my 'Ginger Tom' and my 'Three Little Angels'. My wish is to ensure the best possible care for your pets and your conscience. I look forward to meeting you, your 'furry' loved ones and to enter into an everlasting relationship doing what we do best.

I have been a vet for over 20 years since graduating from The University College, Dublin in 1987. In that time I have worked for small animal and equine practices in the UK. I have also travelled across Australia, which gave me the chance to work with a whole host of 'critters'. I'm a keen bird watcher and live near Bristol with my partner and our two children.

I have been a vet for over 25 years and have worked in all sorts of veterinary practice, including private practice and the charity organisations RSPCA and PDSA. I also practised for a brief spell in The United Arab Emirates. I have treated horses, farm animals and pets, but have concentrated on working with pets for the past 20 years. I am also a practising artist, regularly showing my work in galleries around Bristol and Bath, and have a keen interest in the visual arts. I live in Bristol with my wife, two dogs and a cat.

I graduated from the faculty of Veterinary Medicine Lisbon. After working in research for a while, I moved to Devon to work with both small and farm animals. I moved to Bristol in 2019 to focus on treating small animals. I enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine, but have a special interest in clinical pathology and all things associated with microscopes!

Back home, I have one dog, two cats, goats and some sheep!

I have been working in Veterinary Practice since 2003 and gained my Veterinary Nursing Qualification in 2007. I have always been a massive animal lover and being able to provide TLC when your pets need it most gives me a sense of enormous fulfilment. Seeing the bond between pet owners and their pets and being able to help ensure that bond lasts for as long as possible, is what makes me do what I do. I see every pet and owner as a member of my extended family. I got married in 2012 and have a cheeky moggy at home! Minx is a tabby and white short haired cat who loves catnip and bringing back ‘presents’ and leaving them on the doorstep(!). She loves cuddles and will do anything for Dreamies Treats! In my spare time I enjoy watching wildlife, photography, baking and watching British Comedy.

Starting in the practice in February 2017 as a care assistant, my role here in Vets4Pets Brislington perfectly concatenates all m y experience, passions, and life skills. Personally, having worked in a zoological environment in my past; I have interests in all myriad of creatures in the animal kingdom, At home I currently have three rats and high hopes of convincing my partner to adopt a rescue dog soon! I hope to progress up through this role and eventually obtain my RVN qualification, before specialising in a subset of veterinary nursing.

Originally from Halifax in West Yorkshire, I moved to Bath in 2017 to do a degree in Biology which I graduated from in the summer of 2020. Shortly after, I moved to Bristol and started my diploma in Veterinary Nursing, therefore joining the team at Vets4Pets Brislington. Though I am just starting my career in veterinary nursing, I am very passionate about the role I play here and in giving all your lovely pets the best care possible.

I am particularly interested in rabbit welfare, husbandry and behaviour; loving to learn more and passing on the knowledge I have gained to new rabbit owners. I have 2 adorable bunnies of my own: Jasper, a 4 year old Lionhead and Dot, a 1 year old lion lop.

I have been working with animals since the age of 16! In 2017 I gained my Diploma in Animal Management and in September 2017 started my degree in Veterinary Nursing. I absolutely love everything Rabbit and Guinea Pig related, I have a keen interest in Rabbit and Guinea Pig behaviour and really enjoy answering our client’s queries surrounding bonding, behaviour, husbandry and diet.

I have 2 cheeky Guinea Pigs at home called PJ and DJ, 3 rabbits called Maisy, Buddy and Belle and a very excitable Sprollie dog called Ollie!

I have been working at Vet4Pets Brislington on and off for around 3 years however I am due to graduate from my Veterinary Nursing degree in June 2021 so I will be joining the team full time. In the near future I am planning on specialising in Rabbit and Guinea behaviour and am looking forward to answering all your small furry queries!

I have been working within the practice for around 5 years, starting as work experience to gain some insight in to the veterinary industry. I am now working as a nurse assistant for Vets4Pets and really enjoy meeting all of our lovely patients each day. I am planning in the near future to start training to become a qualified veterinary nurse, and would like to gain more experience working within theatre. In my spare time I care for my trio of dogs and enjoy riding my horses, often competing locally.

I joined the practice in March 2016 as a receptionist and have progressed to acting practice manager  and feel very privileged to work with such a friendly and caring team.

I lived in the Philippines for 8 years and whilst there I cared for and rescued a multitude of animals. My menagerie consisted of 5 dogs (4 from the streets of Manila), an iguana, green crested lizard, a little scops owl, lovebirds, finches, a rooster, 3 ducks, some fish, a bat and even an eagle for a few days.

Since moving back to the UK my house is a little tamer. In my spare time I enjoy taking my two Philippine street dogs for long walks and caring for my handful of Danios.

I guess it was only natural for me to end up working at a vet with my love for animals.
