What is your favourite animal and why?

Anyone who has met me or knows me will know the answer to this! Of course it’s a GUINEA PIG!! Guinea pigs are amazing little animals, they’re super cute, cuddly and they give lots of affection and have conversations with you! Every guinea pig has its own personality, no two are alike!

What pets do you have and what are their names?

I currently breed and show Abyssinian Guinea pigs, I have various guinea pigs of all different breeds, I also have rescue pigs that need long term care.

What's the best pet name that you've ever come across? 

I don't think I really have a favourite name... the naming process of all our pigs is a very long process as there is usually a lot of contenders! 

What is your favourite famous animal? 

Pudsey! I've seen Pudsey whilst he was competing at Crufts a few years ago. He was amazing on the Agility course - I guess that's why he's an agility champion.

What's the best aspect of working for Vets4Pets? 

Being part of such a lovely fun working team. Working at Wakefield Westgate Vet4Pets is enjoyable every day, even when days are tough or you’re rushed off your feet everyone pulls together as a team to get the job done.​
