Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2016 and I have worked in small animal practice since then – in and around Newcastle, finally settling at Bedlington Vets4Pets. 

I am originally from Newcastle – so naturally in my spare time I enjoy exploring our beautiful coastline and the amazing countryside we have on our doorstep - with my beautiful Flat Coated Retriever 'Trudie'. I’ve always said there is no place in the world like the North East of England – I love it!

I am really looking forward to meeting all of the animals we have in Bedlington – and treating them all like one of our extended Vets4Pets family.

My name is Bia and I graduated as a Veterinary Surgeon in 2019. Originally from Portugal, I have been living in England since I graduated and in the last year settled in beautiful Northumberland.I love all parts of being a Vet but I have a special interest in Internal Medicine. Outside of work, I enjoy cooking, photography and learning to play the violin.Me and my partner rescued 3 very different pets over the years: Rio (15 year old labrador), Jasmin (middle aged cat) and Drogon (a young bearded dragon), but I am looking forward to helping and meeting all your 4-pawed friends at Vets4Pets Bedlington!

Practice Owner & Registered Veterinary Nurse

Read Laurie Maddox bio

Having always been interested in animals from a young age, especially horses I was a member of the local Pony Club and competed my Showjumping ponies at both local and national level. My love of animals continued and I went on to study an Advanced Diploma in Equine and Business Studies at Bishop Burton College, whilst also achieving BHSAI teaching qualification. I decided to continue studying and qualified in 2008 as a Registered Veterinary Nurse. I have worked with Vets4Pets since 2011 and joined the Bedlington practice shortly after opening. I enjoy the practical element of my job; nursing sick patients, anaesthesia, radiography, nurse clinics and have by completed a course in surgical nursing. I am also a clinical coach, training and mentoring students in practice. The decision to join Robert and become owners of the Bedlington surgery provides the opportunity to combine continuity of care to our patients and stability for our whole Veterinary team. I have a Dalmatian dog Ruby, a cat Minxy and two horses Mollie and Poppy. My spare time is spent with my family; my husband, little girl Amelia and my little boy Fletcher. We like spending sunny days at the beach, going on bike rides and countryside walks.

It was always my dream as a little girl to become a veterinary nurse - and in 2013 i became a Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN). 

At work i have a keen interest in physiotherapy and how this can benefit your pets. I am currently undergoing further training in this area - watch this space! I also enjoy hand rearing abandoned kittens and finding them forever homes. 

I have two rescue cats at home - Billy and Combo. I also have a horse called Brian. 

In my spare time, i love to spend time with my family: my partner, my little girl and my little boy.

I have always had a passion for animals from a young age. Growing up i spent most of my time with my horse - competing in riding club show jumping and dressage. Whilst i have much less time now for competing - my horse 'Joey' is still my best friend. 

My family includes 5 dogs and 2 cats, who have all been regular visitors at Vets4Pets over the years. I am so excited to have recently joined the team in 2022 and begin my Veterinary Nurse training.

Katie joined the practice early 2023. She is a mum of two puppies, Bella the pug and her newest addition Darcie the cocker spaniel, who she fell in love with on her visit to the practice for her first injections. 

In her spare time she loves to take her dogs on long walks, in a hope to tire young Darcie out. Katie loves cuddling the clients pets, don't be surprised if she steals yours for a hug.

I joined the team at Bedlington in september 2023, having been a customer for many years with both my cat and latterly my German Shepherd who has been visiting the surgery since he was a puppy. 

I jumped at the chance to join the team, and be on the other side of the counter, and love meeting all our clients and their lovely pets.
