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.

I graduated from Warsaw University of Life Sciences in Poland in 2021.
I am very interested in internal medicine and I am also looking forward to developing my exotic knowledge.

What I love the most about working with animals is the feeling of having made a positive difference to a pet's life, especially in a medically challenging case. It is my passion to make sure they live a happy and healthy life.

In my free time I enjoy traveling, working out, gardening, reading medical thrillers but most of all I love hanging out with my friends.

My name is Jenny and I am the Head 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."​

Senior Veterinary Nurse

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 Adele and I started working at Vets4Pets Preston capitol at the end of 2021, I am a Registered Veterinary Nurse and I qualified in 2016. I really enjoy the variety of a Veterinary Nursing  as a career, and having worked at a few different practices since qualifying I've gained knowledge and experience working in different areas and working with many great vet teams. 

My main experience is in general small animal practice carrying out many different nursing tasks from nurse consults and anaesthetic monitoring to labwork, dental nursing and diagnostic imaging, among many others! 

Although I can't resist a new puppy or kitten (who can!) I especially love seeing and helping our older patients in their later years! 

In my spare time I enjoy many walks with my crazy dog Neville, Seeing family and friends and a good old game if Bingo!

I joined Preston Vets4Pets Ltd during our opening month of March 2009 whilst I was still teaching full-time (Performing Arts in case you couldn't already tell)! Having being invited by Andrew to take on the role as Practice Manager, I joined the team without hesitation hungry to take on a new challenge and to be closer to the shops!My background is highly varied and I've probably had every job you could think of during my "resting actor" days; based on those experiences I witnessed some diabolical examples of customer service and I always swore to deliver nothing but exceptional customer care. Our priority here at Preston Vets4Pets is to make every visit as stress-free and as pleasant as the last and if you ever feel we fall below this standard then please contact me on my personal email at james.rogerson@vets4pets.com When I'm blessed with a day off, I can often be found stroking, feeding, cleaning and stroking my 10 cats a bit more, playing bingo with the Mother or taking myself off to the latest musical (if not starring in it). I look forward to my next chat with you at reception over a brew - and if you fancy bringing me something a little special, I've taken an extra fancy to Spicy Teriyaki Deli Chips from the Booths store in Penwortham! Chow for now.

I joined V4P as Practice Manager in 2021. Caring for animal health and welfare has always been extremely important to me. I'm a qualified Veterinary Nurse with over 10 years in practice experience. I later moved into veterinary pharmaceuticals where I became particularly interested in new and innovative products for our pets chronic ongoing conditions and for preventative medicines; including best parasiticide and vaccination protocols for our pets.

Throughout my career I have worked with a vast variety of colleagues, veterinary surgeons, and specialists. During this time I have met some extremely talented people, I've learnt about some amazing preventative medicines, and also some great treatment and techniques that are available in animal health. I'm keen to share my knowledge and experience with both veterinary colleagues and pet owners.

I hope to provide gold standard customer service, offering only the best advice for pet owners and top quality treatment for their animals.

I personally have adopted and cared for many adorable rescue pets over the years, including an array of birds, rabbits, cats and dogs. Animals are my passion and ensuring they receive the love and care they deserve is, and always will be, a priority to me.

If I can help in anyway please feel free to contact me directly, my email address is rebecca.adair@vets4pets.com I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
