Emma Hall

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

Read Emma Hall bio

I graduated from Liverpool Vet School in 2005 and since then I have worked solely in small animal practice in Greater Manchester, Cheshire and North Wales. When the opportunity came up to run my own practice in my own neighbourhood of Chester I jumped at the chance. I love being a small animal vet and I am particularly passionate about surgery. I gained my RCVS Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (General Small Animal Surgery) in December 2012. I am also an RCVS listed Advanced Practitioner. Outside of work I enjoy walking Timo (my border collie), doing DIY with my husband and going on holidays abroad, especially to wine-producing areas.

I have worked in various roles at vets’ practices for the past 9 years and ultimately achieved my dream of becoming a veterinary surgeon when I graduated from the University of Liverpool School of Veterinary Science in 2020. I have been lucky enough to combine two of my main loves, travelling and animal care, by working with charities in India and Africa giving neutering and shelter medicine support where it is needed most.  After experiencing the shelter medicine and conditions of the countries I have visited I feel so fortunate to be part of such a modern and professional practice here in the UK! I have a particular passion for small animal surgery and anaesthesia and I am currently studying towards a Postgraduate Certificate in Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care.

When I am not working, I love nothing more than spending time with my family, including our two whippets (Rupert and Henry) and Howard the tortoise. As well as travelling, skiing, scuba-diving, open water swimming and cycling.

I graduated from Liverpool Vet School in July 2020 mid global pandemic. When I’m not in my blue scrubs, I can be found playing netball, walking up big hills, drinking gin and spending time with my friends & family (not all at once). When I was younger I once took my guinea pig to the vet because I thought it had a lump- turns out it was its nipple, so please don’t be afraid to ask me a silly question! I have a gorgeous lurcher called Mabel. At work I am happiest when in surgery or talking about hearts and one day, I hope to explore this area of veterinary medicine further.

I have been a qualified vet for 10 years, started my career in mixed practice but soon realised that my passion was working with small animals and the variety I get from day to day.  I officially joined the Chester Caldy team in September 2021 and work part time for the practice after having my little girl. Some of you may already recognise me from before September 2021 as I have worked for Emma as a locum on/off for 3 years or so.  While I am not at work, I have a pretty full house with my husband, 2 step children, toddler and an ex racing greyhound called Luke.

Veterinary Nurse

Read Tina Morris bio

I began my nursing career in 2005, I have always been happiest when around animals so working with animals was an obvious choice.

Before joining the Vets4Pets team here at Chester Caldy I had been working at a 24-hour small animal hospital in Cheshire, and prior to that in a practice in North Wales.

I enjoy all aspects of veterinary nursing, but I have a special interest in feline behaviour and I am the Cat Advocate for the practice.

I have two beautiful rescue cats at home, Bungle and Heidi.

I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2021. I spent the 2 years as a student nurse in a hospital environment before coming to Chester Caldy in 2020, to finish off my training.

I have a keen interest in behaviour and currently undertaking an Advanced Canine Behaviour course.
I always knew I wanted to work with animals from a child, originally small animal then after studying equine management and then going on to do a bsc(hons) in equine science. I wanted to go into equine nursing, until I got my own horse.

I love spending time with my family on days out and spending time with my pets (4 dogs and 1 cat) who without, life would be dull as they all keep us entertained with their personalities and little quirks.

I have moved from Pets At Home Chester Caldy where I have worked for the past 12 years to Vets4Pets Chester Caldy as a Veterinary Care Assistant. (So if my face looks familiar - that's probably why!) I’ve always wanted to work with animals. I have a National Certificate in Animal Management and a Foundation Degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare. I currently own two lovely cats Lexie and Maisie, and two very cute guinea pigs Simba and Fudge. When I am not working I am busy with my two little boys. In the future I hope to further my career by training to become a Veterinary Nurse here at Vets4Pets.

Head Client Care Advisor

I started working here at Chester CaldyVets4Pets as a Client Care Advisor in March 2019. I worked as a veterinary receptionist elsewhere before I started here and I can honestly say that it is an absolutely brilliant place to work! Everybody here is so friendly and I have loved getting to know our lovely clients and their beautiful pets over the last couple of years! You will mainly find me on the reception desk waiting to greet you and your pets with a friendly face. Before I worked in the veterinary industry, I worked in retail and whilst I enjoyed the customer facing aspect of the job, as a huge animal lover, I always longed to work with animals. That is why when the opportunity to become a veterinary receptionist, I jumped at the chance and I have never looked back! I love it! I live with my husband, daughter, Milo the dog, two lionhead rabbits Benji and Bernie and a Hermanns tortoise, Dobby. Having pets myself, I fully understand how important our clients animals are to them and how much a part of the family they are. In my spare time I love to spend as much time with my family as possible.  I look forward to welcoming you and your pets into our practice!

I started working at Vets 4 Pets Chester Caldy in 2021 having never worked in veterinary before and I am so grateful to have discovered this industry, I have loved getting to know our customers and I’m genuinely passionate about supporting you and your pets as best I can. I have always adored being around animals, having worked previously in Pets at Home and spending a lot of time around animals growing up. Over the years I have had many different pets from hamsters and rabbits to budgies, but I currently have a cocker spaniel called Murphy who is my pride and joy! I love to spend my time outside of work taking him for long walks or cuddling on the sofa with him to watch a good movie

I am a Veterinary Care Assistant here at Chester Caldy Vets4Pets and I been here since August 2021. My time here is split between working with our clients on the reception desk and helping the vets and nurses with patient care.
My background is mainly in wildlife conservation and monitoring as well as wildlife rescue and my future plan is to retrain as a veterinary nurse here at Vets4Pets.
Outside of work you'll find me out rock climbing in North Wales or tending to my precious vegetable garden at home. In 2021, my family rescued our lovely Saluki called Queenie. Her name reflects her regal personality and pampering requirements! She enjoys chasing pigeons and sunbathing.
