I graduated in 2015 from Nottingham Vet School and joined the partnership of Ilkeston Vets4Pets in 2018. Although I enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine my main professional interests include soft tissue surgery, dentistry, ultrasound imaging and working up medicine cases. I currently share my home with two rescue cats called Summer and Luna who keep me busy!

A snake called "For Goodness".

On TV, the talking horse Mr. Ed (showing my age there), in real life, the showjumper Ftot du Chateau.

What is the best thing about working for Vets4Pets?

Being given support from a friendly large organisation but also given the freedom to do what we feel is best for the client and their pet.

I graduated from the University of Nottingham in July 2021 having studied there for 5 years. Vets4Pets Ilkeston is my first job as a newly graduated Veterinary Surgeon - I initially came to the practice on placement while studying and really enjoyed working as part of the amazing team - so much so I decided to stick around!

 

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my first few months out in practice and have gained invaluable medical and surgical experience during that time. I especially enjoy helping all the lovely pets that come through our doors and making sure they have a positive experience during their time with us. 

 

In my spare time, I love watching football and relaxing in front of the TV. Whenever I get the time, I try and make it back home to Manchester, where I am from originally, to see my two beautiful dogs Alfie and Ava.

I started my veterinary adventure 15 years ago when I was fortunate enough to be accepted on a placement within a practice for work experience. I found my passion was in nursing and have been within the profession ever since! 
 
I have enjoyed nursing a wide range of species during my career so far including reptiles! I love all aspects of nursing and have a particular interest in anesthesia.
 
I achieved a foundation degree in science specializing in veterinary science in 2013 and qualified as a registered veterinary nurse in 2018.
 
I have a 13 year old Staffordshire bull terrier puppy called Missy (pictured above) and we love long walks together finding new places to explore.
 
Having joined Ilkeston vets4pets in April 2021 I am able to utilize all my nursing training and experience to help deliver the best possible care to clients and patients alike and I am excited to develop my knowledge further.

I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2014 and enjoy all aspects of nursing having gained experience working in both 1st opinion, emergency and referral practice.

In 2017 I followed my passion and qualified as an accredited veterinary physiotherapist which allows me to pursue my interest in animal rehabilitation and biometrics alongside my nursing.

Out of work I enjoy looking after and competing my horse Biscuit, and spending time with Mr D my working spaniel who was a rescue dog. As a family we have a small holding which means there is always something to do and no two days are ever the same.

My Name is Sarah Wilkinson and I have been a Client Care Advisor here at Ilkeston Vets4Pets since it opened in March 2015.

My husband and I share a home with two dogs named Gucci and Fudge. I have a son named Leo whom I enjoy spending my time, doing things that 5 year old boys enjoy such as theme parks, family days out and activities that involve getting dirty! Leo adores Gucci and Fudge, and they enjoy their walks with him.

In my spare time, I enjoy meals/drinks out, theatre and spa days with my friends.
