Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

I joined Vets4Pets Burscough when it opened. Originally I was just here temporarily for 6 weeks, but soon fell in love with the practice and clients and decided to become a partner along with Amy. After graduating from the University of Liverpool I spent several years working as a mixed vet in rural Wales, but then decided to concentrate on small animals. I am a member of the Association of British Acupuncturists and love using acupuncture as an additional treatment for a wide range of conditions. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband, our hyper cocker spaniel Louie and our little tabby cat ChilliBonBon.

Tom graduated from Liverpool University in 2004 with a distinction. In 2008 he gained the RCVS Certificate in Small Animal Surgery and in 2015 he became an Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Surgery. Tom worked in a busy first opinion and referral hospital in Cheshire for 14 years prior to setting up Gilding Veterinary Orthopaedics. Starting as an assistant, Tom’s expertise developed and subsequently he became a partner of the practice. As a result, he fully understands the day-to-day pressures of working as a small animal vet in an increasingly demanding and extreme clinical environment.

Read Dr Catherine Sturgeon bio

I had always wanted to be a vet and qualified from the Royal Veterinary College RVC, London in 1994. I started to develop a keen interest in surgery and I was given a golden opportunity to study surgery in more depth, completing a surgical residency at the RVC. In 2000, I moved to the Northwest of England and as a first opinion locum vet accompanied by my then Lurcher called ‘Mouse’, we were made very welcome by a number of veterinary practices. In 2004, I was awarded my diploma and specialist status in small animal surgery. You can find out more on Catherine’s website at

Hi, my name is Amy and I am a Registered Veterinary Nurse here at the Burscough surgery. I have been in practice for 7 years, and I qualified in 2015. I am very excited to be joining Vets4Pets and my new team. I am passionate about all aspects of veterinary nursing, but I especially enjoy providing nurse consults for all of the pets that we see at the surgery. I try to continuously keep my knowledge up to date, and I am currently undertaking further study to gain a certificate in emergency and critical care. At home I have a 2 year old border terrier called Nell, and several goldfish but only one of which has a name; Rainbow Dash! When I do leave the surgery I spend as much time as I can with my beautiful daughter and my fiancé, I also enjoy walking, seeing friends, and going on as many holidays as I possibly can.

I have worked for Vets4Pets for several years before joining the Burscough team in May 2018. I have a special interest in rabbit nursing and strive to improve the welfare of rabbits via my nursing clinics. A home I have 2 rabbits, 2 deaf cats and currently 8 hens, some of which are ex battery hens saved through the British Hen Welfare Trust who I also volunteer for. Outside of work, my hobbies include lots of travel, music concerts and collecting exotic poultry breeds. You may also have seen me on the 2018 Vets4pets advert with my white cat JLo!

Hi, I'm Lucy and I am one of the Veterinary Care Assistants at Burscough Vets4Pets and I have just finished studying Health and Social Care at Cardinal Newman College. I love animals. I am a farmer’s daughter and I have been around all kinds of animals all of my life. During my studies at college I had a weekend job at Windmill Animal Farm. Windmill farm is a local petting farm; it was an amazing first job. I couldn't imagine my life to be any different. I am hoping to carry on working with animals as long as I can, as it is honestly the most rewarding job anybody could ask for.

Hi my name is Yvonne.  I'm always at my happiest when surrounded by animals.  I started my working career in a boarding kennels before moving to a Veterinary Surgery.  I started my family and chose to have an extended break from my career. I have worked at Burscough Vets4Pets since it opened and I'm thrilled to be back in the environment where I feel I belong.

Outside of work I am the proud owner of Foz a 12 year old Springer Spaniel, who you may occasionally see sat with me at the reception desk.  I am a keen gardener, always trying to create natural habitats for our fantastic wildlife.  Now my children have grown up and are at the stage of leaving home I have set myself a challenge of training so I can compete in a half marathon and who knows maybe even go on to do a full marathon!
