Read Cheryl Lucas bio

Born and brought up in London, I was determined to be a vet for as long as I can remember! My earliest memories are of playing with our family spaniel. I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in London in 2009 and have worked in small animal practice ever since, mostly in London, but spent 4 years volunteering and working in Australia and South East Asia. Having now settled in East London/Essex I decided to open Vets4Pets in Chadwell Heath in early 2014, which I have enjoyed so much I decided to take over Vets4Pets in Newbury Park Ilford in 2017. I thrive on providing a fantastic service to our clients and the best possible care for all patients.My special interest is in surgery, and have recently completed an RCVS certificate. Outside of work I  have a son and a daughter, a crazy Cocker Spaniel Amelie and a British Blue cat Albert. When I'm not working I can usually be found walking in the forest, at the gym or exploring overseas. I am now part of CBBC's Pets Factor team!
