Hi, I'm Helen. I grew up in Windermere and did my training around the Lake District. I graduated from Edinburgh University in 2015 and after 2 years in New Zealand returned to Cumbria.

When not at work I enjoy fell walking and looking after my young daughter, golden retriever and rescue cat.

I look forward to meeting you and your pets

I qualified from Bristol University in 1990. I have worked as a small animal vet since that time in various geographical locations throughout the UK. I continue to enjoy my work in practice. In my spare time I love walking in the Lakeland fells with my gang of canine companions - large and small.

I’m Hannah, one of the RVNs at Vets4Pets Kendal. I have been a qualified nurse since 2017 and I am very keen on learning new things in all aspects of the job! I particularly enjoy leading about animal behaviour and how to make your dog or cat’s visit as stress free as possible!

I qualified in the North East and have relocated to Cumbria with my Husband and nearly 7 year old Staffy, Lola.

I relocated to Vets4Pets Kendal after returning from 12 years of living in Australia, working as a nurse there in a busy emergency veterinary hospital. Originally from Cumbria, I have finally readjusted to the change in weather! After three years in the clinical team, I recently changed roles to Practice Manager here at Kendal.

When I'm not at work I like to spend my time running, walking in our beautiful area with my family, and being servant to my two elderly cats, Amber and Scout (who have not yet adjusted to the change in weather!)

Hi. My name is Karen and I have worked for Kendal Vets4Pets alongside our friendly team for over four years now. I love meeting our clients and their pets and love to have a chat too!

I have three dogs, a Romanian Shepherd dog, a West Highland Terrier and a young Lurcher who all keep myself and my partner quite busy!

Looking forward to seeing you all at Kendal Vets4Pets.

My name is Andrea and I am a part time Client Care Advisor here at Kendal. Originally from Liverpool, I first joined the team in October 2018, but left for just under a year between March 2020 and March 2021, during the pandemic. I’m so grateful to have been given the opportunity to return to work with such a fantastic team. I love my job, it’s interesting, varied, sometimes challenging, but meeting so many genuinely lovely clients and their gorgeous pets is such a pleasure and I enjoy every moment (well almost).

I’ve been married to Chris for 36 years in September, we have two wonderful daughters, two lovely son in laws, two precious grandchildren and by the time you’re reading this, will probably have another, as we have a granddaughter due in May 2022. We moved to Carnforth to help with childcare for our grandson and so when I’m not here, you’ll often find me spending time with the family, which is an absolute blessing, but I’ve not much time for anything else.

Sadly, we don’t have any pets currently, as we don’t feel we have the time, energy or finances to take on such a big responsibility. However, I do love all kinds of animals both domesticated and wild. Historically I’ve owned a number of dogs, a canary, a budgie, two hamsters, a rabbit and tropical fish (not all at once). Since moving to Carnforth I have become increasingly interested in wild birds and love watching a small variety that visit our feeders regularly. We also have annual nesting swifts in our eaves, which is a real privilege as they, along with so many wild birds, are in decline.

Anyway, you and your beloved pet are sure of a warm and friendly welcome when visiting us here at Kendal Vets4Pets.

Since starting at Vets4Pets Kendal, I have really enjoyed meeting many wonderful clients and their pets.

I love running and walking in the countryside, and discovering the many beautiful areas around the Lake District.

Although I have never owned a dog, it is always a joy spending time with my partner's energetic bundle Bella. She is really good-natured and loves treats and cuddles.

I am looking forward to welcoming you to the practice, where our friendly team are always happy to assist you.

At Vets4Pets Kendal we are committed to giving your pets’ great care. Our team of Veterinary Surgeons, Registered Veterinary Nurses and Client Care Advisors are devoted to their work and passionate about pets!
