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 I'm also involved in several local animal charities. In my spare time I'm kept busy with my two young sons.  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 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 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 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 Nelly), meeting up with friends and practicing circus skills.

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 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 started working at Vets4Pets Northampton in March 2020 as a Veterinary Care Assistant, before being given the fantastic opportunity to start my Veterinary Nursing training in September 2020. 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!

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!
