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 RSPCA in cruelty cases, and I'm also involved in several local animal charities. In my spare time I walk my dog and spend quality time with my 2 young sons. I look forward to welcoming you and your pet to our practice.

I qualified from The Royal Dick School of Veterinary Studies in Edinburgh in 1998. I have worked in small animal practice since then. I started working at Vets4Pets in 2012. I always wanted to be a vet, and being able to realise this dream, and to provide care for animals in such a lovely practice is fantastic. I have known Jenny and Dee for many years and thoroughly enjoy working with such a great team. I have three children and work part time around a busy family life. In any spare time I get, I make novelty cakes for family birthdays and special occasions.

I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 2014. After growing up on a farm surrounded by animals I always knew I wanted to be a vet. As a student I came to Vets4Pets Northampton on my small animal placements and enjoyed the busy days and varied case load, and hoped one day to be working here. I particularly enjoy surgery, and am studying towards my surgery certificate. Being a 24-hour practice, we are able to do more advanced surgeries and provide the aftercare they require. Outside of work I scuba diving and country walks with my beagle.

I qualified in 2017 from the University of Nottingham. I’ve wanted to be a vet ever since I was very young and snuck into the giraffe enclosure at the zoo and the keepers let me feed them! On graduating I applied to Vets4Pets Northampton and knew straight away that I wanted to be part of the team. The practice has allowed me to see so much in a few years and the team and clients are very welcoming. My favourite thing about being a vet is seeing an animal from diagnosis to treatment so I really enjoy talking to owners, imaging, especially ultrasound and soft tissue surgery. My hobbies include playing the violin in orchestras, the saxophone in bands and climbing both indoors and in the Peak District. In the future, I would like to continue my work as a small animal vet and complete a certificate in one of my favourite areas to improve my techniques and understanding.

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 from the Royal Veterinary College in 2018 and joined the Northampton Vets4Pets shortly after, having spent a lot of time with the team as a student. 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 have a special interest in ophthalmology (eyes) and always enjoy the challenge that these cases present. Outside of work I enjoy walking my dogs (Hunny and Treacle), meeting up with friends and practicing circus skills.

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 graduated from the University of Veterinary Medicine, Budapest (UVMB) situated in Hungary. Within Veterinary Medicine, I have a particular interest in Internal Medicine particularly diagnostic imaging such as Radiology and Ultrasonography. In the veterinary career, I enjoy interacting with our great clients and admire the fact that each case is like a puzzle, to be solved. In my spare time I like to keep fit and spend time with my family and friends.

I’m a Registered Veterinary Nurse here at Vets4Pets Northampton. I qualified in January 2018, I was extremely lucky to be put through my training here at the practice and I gained so much experience and skills from all the vets and nurses. Along with being an RVN I’m also a clinical coach, where I help train and support the student nurses here at the practice. My favourite area in the practice is the hospital wards. I enjoy caring for everyone’s pets and treat them like they are my own. I also have an interest in Diabetes, here at the practice I run regular diabetic clinics to help support the patients and owners who deal with this challenging condition on a day to day basis. At home I have a naughty tortie, Blossom. She certainly runs my household! In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with friends, reading books and ice skating.

I am a student veterinary nurse who started at Vets4Pets Northampton in April 2017 and I am due to qualify at the end of June. I started my training here after I finished my degree in Animal Science. I have a particular interest in consulting as I am able to meet all our clients and their pets, I also love the surgical side of the job. I often run weight clinics which our clients find particularly useful in helping to shift their pets' extra winter padding! I like all the pets we meet but I do have a soft spot for cats. I have always wanted to be a veterinary nurse as I have a strong passion for caring for animals and making sure they are happy and healthy and I love being part of the team at Vets4Pets Northampton.

I joined the practice in November 2015 and the time has flown by since then! Coming from a retail management background I had a lot to learn about Veterinary Practice and I learn something new every single day! I passed the Certificate of Veterinary Practice Management exams in January 2019 and am really proud of this- there are currently only 84 practice managers in the UK with this qualification. This qualification cements my ability to effectively manage a veterinary hospital and is the benchmark for the industry. My role is challenging, varied, and no two days are the same - managing one of the busiest Vets4Pets practices in the company and the large team means I'm never bored! I love being a part of the Northampton team - everybody works so hard and genuinely cares for every patient and I believe we offer an amazing service here for our clients. Most importantly I trust the team unreservedly to look after my own two dogs who I love dearly!

I joined the team on 23rd July 2018 as an Assistant Practice Manager. I am passionate about caring for animals and have wanted to work at a veterinary practice for a long time. I enjoy working as part of a team and the fact that no two days are the same. There is always something to learn, and of course, I love meeting the animals and their owners! I spend a lot of my spare time looking after our horse and Exmoor pony and taking my daughter to competitions. I love the outdoors and enjoy exploring the countryside with our black Labrador and spending time with my family.

I joined the Vets4Pets Northampton team in October 2017 and I look after the practice Facebook page and charity accounts! I have worked in various roles in the past, and they have all involved animals. This was the main attraction to Vets4Pets for me. Also it's safe to say that there is never a dull moment! I have a menagerie of animals at home including my 3 Border Collies, who I enjoy taking camping, walking and exploring! I like to spend most of my time outside, but I'm always happy to stop for food and a pub!

I joined the Vets4Pets reception team in March 2018. As well as working on reception I order all the merchandise that we sell and contact clients regarding their appointments to ensure that their pets are up to date with their boosters and flea and worming treatment. I have always loved animals and when the chance to work alongside them came up I didn’t hesitate to apply to join Vets4Pets. When not working I enjoy spending time with my children and being outside in the garden with my chickens.
