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.

Hi Im Justyna. I joined Vets4Pets South Shields Quays in May 2023 and I knew straight away that I had found the most caring and lovely animal practice.

Outside of my passion for veterinary medicine, I enjoy live music, none more so than rock band Pearl Jam, who I follow every time they are in Europe. 

In my free time I love walking in mountains, watching football and reading books.

I have a cat who I adopted 4 years ago named Sausage.
