Hi, I'm Lex an RVN. Growing up on a farm, I've been around animals from a young age. I went to Harper Adams University to study BSc (Hons) Veterinary Nursing & Practice Management and have been qualified for 7years.

I have two very naughty Jack Russell cross Terriers called Betty and Bertie, who keep me on my toes on a weekend of walks.

My name is Sophie i am a VCA, I joined the Vets4Pets team in 2019. I mostly enjoy meeting all of your pets and making them feel at home when they visit us.

I have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel called George who loves nothing more than a snooze and goes crazy for doggy chocolate drops. I also have a soft spot for hairless pets and always get excited when one comes to see us!

I live with my 4 cats, Ragnar, Lagertha, Maeve and Doogle. So things can get a bit crazy, they rule the household. 
In my free time, you can normally find me outside gardening or off on walks. I have started a Gardening Design and Landscaping course recently which I have been looking forward to doing for some time.
