Hi, my name is Effy and I work as a Veterinary Surgeon here at Newcastle Vets4Pets. Originally from Greece I qualified in 2014 and worked in a variety of small animal practices before coming to the UK in April 2018.

I have a collection of cold-water fish and shrimps and am hoping in the future to add a four-legged friend to my keeping.

Outside of work I enjoy the great outdoors at every opportunity and have a passion for wildlife and astronomy.

I really enjoy working at Newcastle Vets4Pets with my lovely team and always try to give the best of myself in the care and treatment of the little “furries”.

Hi, my name is Kate and I'm one of the vets at Newcastle Vets4Pets. I qualified from Nottingham University in 2015 and worked in a large, mixed animal practice for three years. After this I locumed at various practices around the North East before taking a permanent job at Newcastle in September.

I love meeting clients and their animals and really enjoy being part of the friendly team at this practice.

I spend as much of my spare time outdoors as possible - cycling, hiking and exploring Northumberland with my Golden Retriever, Rosie.

Hi, my name is Laura and I began working in the veterinary industry in 2012. I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2015 and since then have gained experience in both primary care and referral practice. I began working at Newcastle Vets4Pets in August 2018 and became the Head Nurse shortly after.

My job role means I get to look after our patients, clients and the Team so no two days are the same. It is very rewarding and Newcastle is a fantastic place to work.

Hi my name is Abi and I have been a Registered Veterinary Nurse since 2018.

I enjoy looking after my patients and tailoring my nursing to their individual needs.

I am currently studying for a Certificate in Medical Nursing which I hope will allow me to be more hands on with the medical cases that come in to our Practice.

I love working within this talented team at Newcastle Vets4Pets. We like to work hard but enjoy socialising (normally around food!) outside of the Practice.

G’Day! My name is Emma and I have been with the Newcastle Vets4Pets family since August 2021, as a student veterinary nurse.

I am British, despite my Australian accent! Most of my family are Australian and I have lived and worked out there for a number of years.

I am a former Marine Biologist and have worked in zoos and aquariums since I was 17 years old. My special interests are in exotics, behaviour and nutrition.

My greatest life accomplishment so far is working as a crocodile wrangler in Darwin Australia - just like the legendary Steve Irwin!

Hi, I have worked as Veterinary Care Assistant since 2018 having previously worked on Reception.

I love all kinds of animals no matter how big or small, they deserve the best care and love that we can give them.

The best thing about working here at Newcastle Vets4Pets is the clients and staff team - they are all amazing!

Hi, my name is Richard and I joined Newcastle Vets4Pets in 2018 working for the first time in the veterinary world having previously spent 10 years in the private health care sector.

My family home currently has two dogs: Bobbie, a Bearded Collie Cross and Peggy, a Border Collie who both have their crazy moments especially when the post or parcels arrive!

We also have a pair of gerbils who can be really noisy at night and a dwarf hamster called Squawker, so called because he was not keen on being handled in his first weeks but has since become very friendly. 

Recently we added a Leopard Gecko to the family menagerie, though not everyone is keen on the live insect feeding!

It's great to work with an amazing group of people who share a real passion and commitment for animal care and do such a great job each and every day.

Hi, my name is Holly and I have a Tabby cat called Tiger. I had two Miniature Schnauzers called Jasper and Tilly who were the sweetest dogs. Tilly always loved coming to work at the vets helping on Reception.

 

I have worked on Reception at Newcastle Vets4Pets since January 2017. I love working with animals and in July 2019 successfully passed my exams to become a fully qualified Dog Groomer.

 

I love working with the team here at Newcastle Vets4Pets and they are like family to me. Our regular clients definitely cheer us up on the front desk when they bring their cutie pets to the practice. Getting lots of cuddles and kisses from the dogs makes a great day at work!
