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.

Since coming to the UK I have not been able to have any pets of my own but would love to do so in the future when circumstances allow.

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 helping on a friend's farm. One day I hope to have a canine companion to join me!

Hi, I have worked as Veterinary Care Assistant for over 2 years now 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 have now added a pair of gerbils to the mix 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. 

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.
