I love that I see continuation of all my cases and get to see and meet lovely clients. I love being part of a close team.

Hi my name is Elly and I have just graduated in 2022 as a Veterinary Surgeon. After coming here on my final years placement I absolutely loved it, the team were so welcoming so I decided to apply for a job here!

I am so exited to start my career as a vet, as well as my love for animals I love the fact everyday is new and exciting and I get to be part of an amazing team.

In my free time I love going to the gym and keeping active by going on long dog walks and running. I love going on holiday and music festivals especially Glastonbury.

Hello, I’m Ilicia!

I have been working here at South Shields Quays for 4 years and I am embarking upon my nursing journey.

I love my job as every day is diverse and exciting; surrounded by my colleagues who are hardworking and strive to give the best possible care to our patients always.

I have a 14 year old Maltese called Lillie who I have had since I was 11 years old. She is my little best friend!

Whenever I get the chance, I love to travel anywhere possible! Nature walks are my favourite and I love to binge watch a good series.

Hi I’m Darran, one of the minority of male registered Veterinary Nurses here at South Shields Quays.

I have 14 years’ experience in the veterinary business. I spent 13 years at my previous practice working with Cats, Dogs, Rabbits and the more exotic species; including, small furries, snakes, birds of prey, parrots and even a lioness! I gained a Nursing exotic certificate in 2016.

I joined the fab team here at Vets4Pets South Shields Quays in September 2021 having moved here from Chesterfield in Derbyshire.

I have a keen interest in all species of animals but I do have a soft spot for German Shepherds and any reptile and avian pets.

Although at the moment I am pet free, I have in the past had the pleasure to have owned a variety of different pets including Dogs, Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, Gerbil, Lovebird and a variety of aviary bird’s tropical fish and a royal Python!

Outside of work, I enjoy going for walks and discovering new places, listening to music, bird watching and dolphin spotting. I also enjoy Quizzes and Quiz shows and reading horror fiction and factual books on wildlife. I very occasionally attempt to play my own guitar rather badly!

Hi I’m Vikki! I'm the Practice Manager here at South Shields Quays.

I've been here for 5 years now, watching our practice grow. I love meeting new clients and furry faces everyday!

When I'm not looking after the practice and our team, I love caring for Darius; My beautiful 32 year horse! It's always fun trying to get him back in his stable after a full days work!

Outside of work, I can be found cleaning up the disaster trail after Oscar and Ollie; My two crazy Patterdale terrier brothers.

Hi, I’m Kayleigh!

I have worked at South Shields Quays since March 2021.

Every day is different and definitely keeps me on my toes which makes it a challenging but exciting place to work. It's great not knowing what is coming through the door next! 

I love to be positive and making people smile! I like chatting to new clients and cuddling their furry companions. 

On my days off, my pups Ollie the Maltese and Cassie the Cocker Spaniel keep me on my toes!
