BVetMed (Hons) CertAVP (VetGP) MRCVS - Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Practice

Read Jenny Millington bio

I qualified with distinction in 1999 and have worked exclusively in small animal practice since then. Eventually I decided I wanted to run my own practice, so in 2009 opened Vets4Pets. I love seeing how the practice has grown, yet I pride myself on providing a first class personal service to each and every pet, no matter how large we get. In 2016 I gained my RCVS Advanced Practitioner qualification in Small Animal Practice - I am the only vet in Northamptonshire to have this qualification, and enables me to effectively lead the great team we have built up to deliver outstanding care for your pets. I love all aspects of veterinary life - from consulting to dealing with emergencies through to surgery, and like to get to know my patients and clients personally over the years that they come to us. I regularly act as an expert witness for the court in animal welfare and cruelty cases, and am involved in veterinary forensics.  In my spare time I'm kept busy with my two young sons, and our family help Dogs For Good to socialise and train puppies.  I look forward to welcoming you and your pet to our practice.

Hi, I’m Eve. I’ve been with the practice for nearly a year now and have been enjoying my new role as Out of Hours Veterinary Surgeon. I enjoy the different pace of emergency work and the challenges it brings and also being closely involved in the care of patients during the night. I love the fact that the patients receive continuous care and monitoring during the night, and we can adjust their treatment plans as soon as improvements occur. I graduated from the University of Sydney in 2001, and have lived in the UK for 17 years now having met and married a Brit. We have an 8 year old son Rhys who takes after us with our love of cats.

I qualified from Glasgow in 2014 and have enjoyed being in busy small animal practice since! I chose to work at Vets4Pets as they are a lovely team and I am able to work with emergencies and inpatients overnight, which I feel is very important to be able to provide. My particular areas of interest include feline medicine, dentistry and soft tissue surgery. Out of work I have lots of hobbies including horse riding and gymnastics! Family members include my partner, my horse and my cat! I am currently studying for an emergency and critical care advanced veterinary certificate, which I hope to complete in the next two years and I look forward to developing my surgery to be able to offer more specialised procedures in the future.

I graduated as a vet from the Royal Veterinary College in July 2018 and returned to Northampton to join the amazing team having spent a lot of time with them as a vet student. Whilst at university I did a BSc in Comparative Pathology (the study of disease) and came away with a degree, a deeper understanding of research and a published paper.

I love working with a team that is so passionate about helping our patients and providing an exceptional level of care. I enjoy all aspects of small animal practice, from consulting and meeting our clients and their lovely pets, to dealing with emergencies and critical cases. I particularly enjoy the challenge of our eye cases and ongoing medicine cases, such as diabetes. I have also spent some time volunteering in the Caribbean, working with a team to provide preventative healthcare, neutering the islands animals and deal with emergencies.

Outside of work I enjoy walking with the family spaniel Nelly, travelling and craft beer.​

I’m Marise and I graduated from Nottingham University in 2015. Since then I have primarily worked for a busy charity hospital in Leicester while establishing good relationships with various local private practices as a locum. While I enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine and surgery, my main interest lies in emergency work. I have recently completed a certificate of advanced veterinary practice in this area with modules including anaesthesia and critical care. I am very much looking forward to the case continuity that working for a 24-hour hospital provides, especially for the most critical patients, and being able to utilize the advanced equipment the practice has invested in to investigate cases to a high standard.

Outside of work I can usually be found on adventures with my rescue Lurcher, Tia, horse riding, bouldering or spending time with friends (and most likely their dogs too!)

I graduated from The University of Nottingham vet school in 2020. I have been a regular student at the Northampton practice for many years, first coming when I was at school before university. Back then, the practice was in its infancy compared to the great hospital we have now. I love working with such an enthusiastic, supportive team that will allow me to grow and develop my skills as a vet. I enjoy many aspects of veterinary medicine from meeting our clients and working up a case through from start to finish, all the way to emergencies and soft tissue surgery. Outside of work I can often be found following my favourite football team, seeing friends or running to try keep fit(ish).

I've graduated in 2020. As a vet, I like being able to cause a positive impact in a patient's wellbeing and seeing what that means to the client, it's the most rewarding aspect of the job. Although I like all the aspects of veterinary, surgery and imaging are the areas I want to develop further in this new adventure.
When I'm not working I usually spend my time outside exploring and exercising. Football and cooking for family and friends are also things I love doing.

How do you do! My name’s Tanis and it is my absolute pleasure to work with you and your furry friend(s) here at Northampton Vets4Pets! I graduated in 2022 from the University of Surrey but, having grown up in Northamptonshire, I’ve always known I wanted to come back and share what I’ve learnt with the community. The team here have been incredibly kind, patient and supportive of me as a new graduate and I feel incredibly lucky to be learning from such a fantastic range of people in such an extraordinary new hospital! My main interests lie in emergency and critical care – CPR specifically – but my current goals drive me to become the best general practice vet I can possibly be. Outside of work, I really enjoy climbing, cooking, mixology and spending time with my 2 black cats, Penny and Luna, as they tear the house apart!

I really enjoy my time working in the kennel areas, caring for both the day patients and hospitalised inpatients, but have also found both wound care and nutrition quite interesting. In my spare time, you will either find me in my kitchen baking sweet treats and cakes, or out on walks with my parent’s springer spaniel, Luna, but I cannot wait to find a rescue dog to call my own sometime in the future!
