Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Jennifer Naylor bio

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 and daughter, our two dogs Louie and Gypsy 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

Practice Owner & Veterinary Nurse


Read Amy Ferguson bio

Hi, my name is Amy and I am a Registered Veterinary Nurse and Practice Partner here at the Burscough surgery. I have been in practice for 7 years, and I qualified in 2015. I am passionate about all aspects of Veterinary Nursing, but I particularly 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 two border terriers called Nell and Kiwi, 6 chickens and 2 sheep! When I do leave the surgery I spend as much time as I can with my husband and my beautiful daughter and son. I also enjoy walking, seeing friends, and going on as many holidays as I possibly can!
