Meet the team
My name is Lisa and I am one of the vets. I qualified back in 2010 from Royal Dick Veterinary School in Edinburgh. After graduation, I moved back home to Durham to begin my career in mixed practice. I have worked in several small animal and equine practices in the area and also spent a year working in Australia.
My grandfather was a vet so I have grown up with a love of animals. I loved looking after animals and riding horses growing up. At home I am Mum to Harry and my fur baby George the Labrador.
Hi my name is Lisa.
My nursing career started in 2003 at a veterinary hospital in Middlesbrough where I completed my training to become a qualified nurse. In 2008 I moved to Vets4pets (Durham) where I spent the next 11 years. Following a short break in private practice I returned to Vets4pets this time joining the lovely team at Bishop Auckland in Dec 2018.
I have a keen interest in small furies especially rabbits and guinea pigs and I am currently undertaking my city and guilds certificate in exotics.
I have acquired lots of rescue pets over the years and I currently own 6 rabbits, countless Guinea pigs, a one eyed pug, a 13 year old Labrador, 2 tortoises and 2 cockatiels.
I am looking forward to meeting you all.
Hi there, my name is Becky. After gaining a national diploma in Animal management, I have worked with a wide variety of animals and pets for several years now. Over the years I've had lots of pets including reptiles, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, gerbils, and fish. I'm also passionate about helping wildlife anyway I can. I currently share my home with my husband, our house rabbit Baxter, and our Bichon frise Ozzy. I enjoy welcoming clients and their pets into the practice, and seeing all that goes on to keep your pets happy and healthy. In my free time I am often found gardening, spending time with my fur babies, or enjoying a good book or film.
