Advanced services

At Vets for Pets, we have invested considerably in our team and kit to make a number of advanced services available to our clients. We also accept referrals from other practices.

Orthopaedics and fracture repair

Our veterinary team have undertaken advanced training to allow us to perform orthopaedic surgery in our practice. If your pet develops an abnormality involving their skeleton or joints, such as elbow dysplasia, a patella (kneecap) that gets stuck, or a torn cruciate ligament, an orthopaedic procedure may help them.

Sarah Thomas

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Sarah Thomas bio

From the beginning she's been at our heart,

Our all round vet from the very start.

Her care for animals knows no bounds,

From the smallest mouse to the biggest hounds.

All creatures great and small,

We know she'll treat them all.

She leads her practice with a smile and a giggle,

Even when her patients wriggle.

Jenny’s partner in crime, a double act,

Without these two where would we be at.

Helen Davis

Veterinary Surgeon


Read Helen Davis bio

A Rugby lass born and bred,

Helen is extremely well read.

Her medical knowledge blows us away,

Sharing tips with the team every day.

Her focus and attention is clear to see,

She loves all creatures even a bee.

Giving clients and patients her very best,

Even if it means she gets no rest.

Her Rapunzel locks are her trade mark look,

You'll often find her reading a book.

From Lisbon uni he graduated,

Before he left his home and emigrated.

He joined our family in 2022,

Soon becoming a favourite with clients too.

Neurology is his special interest,

Ensuring his patients get offered every test.

An amazing medic he's starting to be,

He'll not miss a trick not even a flea.

Once a coach of a volleyball team,

But being a vet was his original dream.

From front of house and patient observation,

Laboratory tests and dispensing medication,


At the heart of our nursing teams,

She always ensures our practice gleams.

Whisper is her favourite pooch,

You'll often see them out on a mooch,

The clinical coach role she took on,

To teach new students from now on.

In 2016 we found Lucy-Jo,

What was to follow we didn't know.

As lead CCA she really flourished,

Ensuring the team was working and polished.

During lockdown she really stood out,

Promoted to Practice Manager without any doubt.

Now she helps and looks after us all,

Ensuring our best and that we don't fall.

Her priority is our clients care,

To be number one for pets everywhere.

A friendly face she'll greet you with a smile,

Bev is one who goes that extra mile.

From first vaccinations to sad goodbyes,

She'll be there for all she wouldn't deny.

Every patient can steal her heart,

A little terrier she couldn't part.

In need of a drink she'll be there with the kettle,

Or a box of tissues if you're found in a fettle.

On the end of the phone she’s a welcoming voice,

Our CCA Bev she is everyone’s choice.

Client Care Advisor

Read Ami Gibbs bio

From Coventry Canley she first came,

Learning skills to make her top of the game.

Answering phones and greeting clients,

With any task she is reliant.

Her first true love she admits,

Are Amelie and George her rabbits.

She's now back in college and learning again,


Studying for more skills she will obtain.

She's bright and happy with a touch of sass,

But truly amazing and full of class.

Yvette Bousfield

Lead Client Care Advisor

Read Yvette Bousfield bio

Her name is Yvette but she's not the Vet!

She'll do her best for sure, that’s a bet.

Lead CCA is her title,

Her Client Care Advice is vital.

No matter the day she is lovely,

Full of life and very bubbly.

Insurance claims are her domain,

She does her upmost not to complain.

Any question big or small,

She'll go beyond to answer them all.
