Cat Roach

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Cat Roach bio

I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College, London in 2004. Since then I have worked in several practices and have even done some locum work in Stoke and Cheshire. I have a keen interest in soft tissue surgery. I live with my dog Kira (who was my graduation present from my parents) and my four cats, all of whom were abandoned but I fell in love with them while I was treating them. Two are missing legs and one is missing an eye but they all look beautiful to me. In my spare time I paint and play the flute and guitar.

I graduated in 2016 at USAMV in Cluj-Napoca in Romania.

I practiced small animal medicine for 2 years in Romania. In 2018 I moved to the UK to practice Veterinary medicine in small animals.

My interests are small animal medicine, especially general surgery, dermatology and feline medicine. For as long as I can remember I have always had pets, adopting a lot in Romania, I developed a passion an wanted to help them more so started volunteering for charity's back home which progressed into my career  as  Vet.

At home we have two adopted Guinea Pigs and love to explore the beautiful Peak District doing hikes or going on bike rides.

Craig Colbert

Practice Owner & Veterinary Nurse


Read Craig Colbert bio

I studied Veterinary Nursing at Myerscough Collage in Preston. In practice I enjoy radiography, unblocking cats, and suturing wounds. My favourite piece of kit is the digital X-Ray. When I entered the veterinary world 14 years ago, I never thought that I would be able to have my very own practice. However a chance encounter with a locum vet paved the way for my future. Pointing me in the direction of Vets4Pets and their JVP team. I am married to Felicity and have a beautiful daughter Emily. My main hobby is photography, in which I have a BA(hons) degree.

I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2010. I particularly love theatre work and taking xrays, and love meeting clients and their pets.

Outside of work I have a beautiful baby who takes up most of my time but we love going for long walks with our boxer dog. We also have a rescue cat, Florence, who loves to cause trouble and is lots of fun.

Animals are a big passion of mine and I treat every pet that comes through our doors like they are my own.

I have owned a wide range of animals throughout my life, from hamsters to birds to even frogs! My currently fur babies are a British bulldog called Winston and a Chinese crested x called Dobby who is quite the character and is my daughters best friend!

I pursued my dream of working with animals straight from high school where I attended Rease Heath college and achieved a triple distinction star in Animal Management.

I then went on to be a City & Guilds qualified dog groomer for 7 years and even managed my own salon! I loved this job but I always felt like I wasn't fully fulfilled.. I am now loving my new role at Vets 4 Pets and finally feel like I am where I belong.
