Advanced services

At Vets for Pets, 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.

Problems involving the musculoskeletal, nervous systems and balance can be helped by physiotherapy. It can also aid in recovery from injury or surgery and with pain management. At Vets4Pets, we can arrange for physiotherapy to be part of your pet’s multi-modal treatment plan.

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.

Read Rachel bio

Hi I’m Rachel. I’m a Veterinary Surgeon and the Joint Venture Partner here at Widnes Vets4Pets. I am a born and raised Widnesian and am looking forward to meeting you and your pets. I studied at Glasgow Veterinary School and took a detour via a busy mixed practice in Lincolnshire to come back home to Widnes. I thoroughly enjoy my job. I have an interest in both orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery, along with exotic pets. I have successfully completed post graduate certificates in both of these subjects and have been awarded the title of advanced practitioner in small animal surgery from the RCVS. I have 3 crazy dogs, who can often be found at the surgery as our patient welcoming department/extra receptionists. Poppy is a Springer Spaniel, whom I have had since a puppy. Teddy is a rescue Springer and Maisie is a rescue Springer cross. I also have a rescue tortoise called Sheldon. Outside of work I can be found playing my saxophone as part of Liverpool Hope Concert Band, or having long walks with my dogs and family

Registered Veterinary Nurse

Read Laura bio

Hi, my name is Laura and I am a Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) here at Widnes Vets4Pets. I qualified as an RVN in July 2018 after studying my degree at Myerscough College and I started my journey as a qualified nurse with Vets4Pets in August 2018. I thoroughly enjoy my job, but my favourite parts include laboratory work, radiography, and giving your pets lots of cuddles! I am also enjoying working with a variety of different species in this practice. I feel very lucky to have become a part of the Vets4Pets family and am looking forward to getting to know the clients and their pets. Not many people can say that they enjoy coming to work, but I certainly do! In my spare time when I am not at work with your pets, I enjoy going for long walks, seeing my family and friends and spending time with my own cats, Pixel and Babby

Hey, My name is Alessandra and I am the Practice Manager here at Widnes Vets4Pets. Before joining the team here I worked as Deputy Manager for Pets at home. I have a Animal Management (Plus Business) Degree. I love meeting all our clients, In fact you'll probably find me on the reception floor enjoying plenty of kisses and cuddles. I have 3 Fur babies, a Beagle called Hugo, a German Shepherd called Opie and a Labradoodle called Lyla who you might see being a nuisance behind the reception from time to time. In my free time I am usually walking trying to tire out my crazy dogs, or binge watching a TV series.

Hi, I’m Alex! I started working here in 2020, but before that I was a Royal Air Force dog handler working alongside my furry partner in crime! As you can see from my picture I don’t just love dogs. I have three cats myself, Kitty Cat, Koala Bearington and Ruby Doobs. Someday I would like to rescue a dog or two, but I’m not sure my cats would allow it! In my free time I enjoy watching true crime documentaries and reading books about history.
