Veterinary Care Assistant

Read Lauryn Allen bio


My name is Laurie, I recently joined the team at Vets4Pets Rayleigh and began my role as one of the veterinary care assistants within the practice. I think I was just 3 years old when I sat on a pony and my love for animals stems from there. I started riding aged 5 and was lucky enough to own a gelding- called Cally, until we sadly lost him in 2019.

Since then, to try and fill the huge void he left behind in our lives, we took the decision to welcome a puppy into the family- a cocker spaniel called Lottie. Lottie is a total princess and makes us laugh everyday with her antics. At the moment, we're all enjoying gun dog training with her.
