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.

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.

Ultrasound

We are pleased to be able to offer ultrasound scanning in practice, which is a painless way to look inside your pet’s body to find out what’s going on.

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.

“Caring for animals isn’t what I do. It is what I am.”

I have been enjoying working as a vet since 2006. I obtained a bachelors in veterinary medicine (BVSc&AH) and a masters in veterinary surgery and radiology (MVSc) from India; followed by a masters in small animal science (MSc) from Germany. Spending almost a decade at the universities (in India and Germany), I was privileged to play the roles of a student, a teaching assistant to undergrads, a researcher, attended scientific meetings and actively participated in various medical/surgical camps for pets and large animals including equines. In 2014 I moved to clinical practice to join a referral hospital from Evidensia group, Germany. I relocated to Bristol, UK in 2019 and since then I have been a part of the team at Vets4pets Brislington. My areas of interest include internal medicine, soft tissue surgery and ultrasound; however I have always been passionate about ophthalmology. Currently I am working towards gaining a post graduate certificate in veterinary ophthalmology. Outside work I enjoy spending time with family, reading, cooking yummy Indian food and listening to music.

I was born and raised in a small town outside Oslo, Norway. Growing up I had plenty of different pets, including cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs and rats. I also had a couple of horses and competed actively as a show jumper for 6 years. 

After high school and mandatory military service, I also took a year to travel and volunteer with animals all around the world, before starting vet school in Wroclaw, Poland in 2017. I graduated early 2023 from Wroclaw university of environmental and life sciences (UPWr), and has mostly been working in England ever since. I graduated with an additional skill; after finishing my acupuncture graduate certificate in Belgium with the Chi University. 

I have a keen interest in integrative medicine, and can offer alternative treatment options on a variety of conditions with acupuncture & traditional Chinese veterinary medicine (TCVM).

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.

I started my training in 2016 when my placements first began here at Vets4Pets Brislington and graduated from Middlesex university in London in 2018.

Even as a small child I dreamed of a career working with animals. That dream become a reality in 2004 when I secured training at SPCA Harare as a basic dog handler. Fresh faced and eager to learn, I was thrown headfirst into the life of a busy mixed animal practice. I then enrolled with the University of Zimbabwe to do a veterinary nursing diploma, which I graduated from in 2012. I am currently practicing and seeing how things are done here in the UK. At home I left my little Border collie, Snoopy. I still enjoy training dogs basic obedience, i.e come, sit down and stay.

I have been working within the practice since 2016, starting as work experience to gain some insight in to the veterinary industry. I am now working as a care 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 began my career here in 2021 as a Receptionist with a keen interest in animal care. I have completed a degree in BSc Zoological Management and Conservation (Hons) and have an array of experience with exotic and endangered animals, big and small. I have completed work experience in the UK with different zoos and zoo vets over the years and have domestics experience with my own/ family pets. I have grew up with a variety of animals, including dogs, cats, tortoises, salt and freshwater fish, rodents and countless others. I have a particular interest in birds and have reared them in my own aviary for the past 14 years and have an abundance of knowledge to share. My favourite animals I have worked with in the past are zebras, gorillas and flamingos.

After graduating from the University of Gloucestershire with a Degree in Film and TV Production I moved to Bristol taking on various roles such as a dog walker and lettings co-ordinator for an estate agents. It was while working as a dog walker my love for animal care began to thrive. I got my Pet First Aid and a Diploma in Animal Care in March 2022 and joined the team at Brislington Vets4Pets as a Client Care Advisor in June 2022. I’m excited to continue to learn and gain new experiences in the vet industry and in a few years start my vet nurse training. Outside of work I enjoy reading, going to the theatre and exploring new places with my boyfriend and our beagle.

I joined the practice in March 2016 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. 

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

I am quite new to the veterinary world but have been thoroughly enjoying the role! Starting as a Client Care Advisor, I enjoy being able to help our clients and patients receive the best care possible. Now as Head Receptionist I am even better placed to support you through every step.

I studied Animal Behaviour and Welfare BSc at the University of Bristol before going on to work as an Aquarist in Aquariums for 5 years. In this time I worked with a huge variety of animals including horses, fish, reptiles, and amphibians.

I currently have my own rescue dog who I love hiking with on my days off.

I joined Vets4Pets Brislington in January of 2018. 
 
Before then I had a joyous 5 years in a Cattery, cats are my true weakness any of our regular clients and colleagues would know this. Before opting to work in an animal environment I worked in the Insurance Industry for 16 years. 
 
My life and passion outside of work includes my two cats, Rio and a very mouthy Bengal called Goldie, who at 18 is still as mad as they come. But my time is all taken up by my glorious two Bay Horses, Roscow and Buzz, we spend hours exploring the countryside around Bath.

I have adored animals my whole life and love how their presence is proven to reduce stress, anxiety and depression. My admiration grew further in the pandemic when I got my kitty and he made the lockdown not so lonely. I have a black and white tuxedo fur baby called Pluto and he is the craziest and cuddliest kitty I’ve ever known.

After finishing school, I tried many different career options but have learnt that animals and their care are my passion and joined the practice to develop that passion. I’m not sure what path of veterinary medicine I would like to pursue in the future but know that working with animals is where I belong.

You may recognise my face after previously working at Vets4Pets Brislington as a Receptionist 5 years ago. After exploring alternative career options including working for the NHS and veterinary marketing, I decided to return. I have always had a passion for animals, and I really enjoy meeting all of your lovely pets each day, especially those with waggy tails!

Outside of work, my adventurous spirit takes me on journeys both within the UK and across the globe, including South East Asia and Brazil. I also enjoy hiking with my extremely hyper, but loveable Cocker Spaniel, Ralphy.

Vets4Pets Brislington is committed to bringing you affordable, high quality care via a modern, well equipped practice, including a lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray and ultrasound. Plus, on site car parking too!

The friendly team can't wait to meet all of their new clients!
