I was fortunate enough to attend Nottingham Vet School and upon graduating I spent two and a half years in a busy mixed animal hospital offering 24 hour emergency care. I then moved to Vets4Pets and completed their graduate scheme program. I am married with a family and in my spare time I love horse riding, cycling, walks with my family and dinner parties or summer BBQs with our friends. I also do regular voluntary work and fund raising for a local hedgehog charity.
My name is Jenny and I am the Senior Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) here at Preston Capitol Vets4Pets.
I began my journey when I secured a place at Myerscough College in 2013 to study a foundation degree course in Veterinary Nursing that I qualified from in July 2016. I continued on with my studies at Myerscough College in order to obtain a Bsc (Hons) degree and qualified from this in July 2018.
I have many duties within the clinic, one of which is being a clinical coach for student veterinary nurses (SVNs). I ensure that the students gain both practical and theoretical skills that will help them both in clinic and when carrying out their examinations at college.
I have a cross breed dog (Cavapoo) called Bobby and three rat called Dobby, Rodney and Rupert.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going on long walks with my partner and baking."
Hello I'm Olivia, I joined the team in October 2018 as a Registered Veterinary Nurse and have worked across both Vets4Pets Preston branches.
I have over 10 years experience with working with animals from working in a pet shop as a nutrition consultant to working in zoos and aquariums. I have keen interest in emergency care, nutrition and exotic species. I am currently working to complete a certificate in emergency and critical care, this is to give me additional experience to ensure I can help all pets in a range of emergencies we face in practice day to day.
Here in practice my day consists of admitting patients for procedures in the morning, then moving onto a range nurse consults including triage appointments for emergency patients, I then assist the Vets with inpatients and surgery including monitoring anaesthesia. I also conduct diagnostic tests such as laboratory work and radiography to help aid the Vets which is very interesting. I enjoy speaking to all of our clients about their pets and helping to educate to ensure all pet are getting the best care possible.
In my spare time I like to spend time socialising with family and friends, and spending time with my mad Cockapoo Milo.
Hi, I'm Katie and I am a Student Veterinary Nurse at Preston Capitol Vets4pets. I have been here since 2017, I started on reception then studied to become a Veterinary Care Assistant before continuing on to my Diploma in Veterinary Nursing which I will complete this year. I really enjoy being a part of the team at Preston Capitol and meeting all the clients and their pets. Anyone that has met me may already know that I am a crazy cat lady. After completion of my veterinary nursing course I would like to complete further studies relating to feline nursing. I have 3 cats at home called Hugo, Tizzy and Saffron.
Hi, I’m Sam, I started out on reception as a client care advisor but I am now a qualified veterinary care assistant too. As well as meeting and greeting the clients and their pets on reception which I adore, I now get to cuddle and care for the pets which stay with us for the day.
My responsibilities as a VCA are to assist the vets and nurses by keeping theatre and prep clean and tidy, setting up kennels and equipment for the animals in our care and monitoring them before, during and after their treatment or procedure to make sure that they get the best care possible while they are with us. I am here to assist the vets and nurses and cover reception throughout the day, as and where I am needed.
At some point in the future I would like to specialise in animal hydrotherapy, helping to rehabilitate and exercise dogs and cats who require this specialist treatment but for now I love being part of the team here at capitol with all the joy and challenges it brings.
My spare time is spent with my Husband and Daughter and our pets, our three cats, Mika, Tink and Moo, Monty our royal python, Buddy, our jack russell and Chilli our goldfish…being a family that consists of more animals than people is just the way we like it!
I love my work and enjoy being part of the Capitol family so much and getting to know our clients and their furry - and the not so furry - little friends is the best part of my job.
I have studied Advanced Animal Science and a BSc(hons) in Animal Behaviour and Welfare. My background is in Veterinary Diagnostics. Having moved to Practice Management from my previous job as Head of Veterinary Histology for a diagnostics company after 13 years I am looking forward to meeting you all and getting to know each of our clients. I am married with a beautiful wife and 2 young lads who would love to own a dog but for the time being will have to settle for our pet goldfish Goggles.
