Hello, My name is Ania and I come from Poland.  I have been a vet since 2002 and I graduated in Wroclaw University in Poland.

I came to England in 2017 and really enjoy living and working here.  I love my work and I am particularly interested in dermatology and cat medicine.

I have a guinea pig at home but my dream is to have three cats.

In my spare time I like to read and go walking with my husband.  I would really like to travel around the whole of Great Briton at some point in the future.

Veterinary Nurse


Read Megan bio

My name is Megan, I started volunteering at Vets4Pets since leaving school in 2013, completed an animal management course and then eventually qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2018. Our team works very well together and became like a second family. I enjoy spending every day working with animals in my dream job, every day is different. I have an interest in exotic patients and also our golden oldies that sadly need a bit more TLC than the youngsters. When I'm not at work, I can usually be found looking after my ever growing zoo at home with 3 fish, 1 cat, 2 crazy spaniels and my rescue bunny. I love nothing more than being outdoors and active on walks or runs with the dogs.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, including my 3 dogs and 1 mad cat. I look forward to meeting you and your pet soon.

Sarah Thorell

Veterinary Care Assistant

Read Sarah Thorell bio


My name is Sarah and I work as a VCA.  My job in practice is to make sure all of our patients have everything they need for a comfortable stress free stay, I like to make sure they are happy and calm.

Working in an animal related profession is what I've always wanted to do.  After working in pet retail for 17 years, I have realised my heart lies in helping animals that have problems or illnesses, so moving to a Veterinary Practice was perfect for me.

At home, I have a cat called Gypsy who is my little baby.  I also have a corn snake, leopard gecko, gerbil, a tropical fish tank and several tanks of stick insects.
