Read Chris Foster bio

Chris graduated as a Veterinary Surgeon from the University of Bristol in 1999 and has been working as a Veterinary Surgeon in the Bury area since 2001, doing a combination of general practice medicine and surgery, in addition to many years of accident and emergency work at a local out of hours and emergency clinic. He joined the Bury Vets 4 Pets team in May 2017, and has recently become a partner at the practice. Chris enjoys the broad mix that first opinion small animal medicine and surgery provides, and divides his time at Vets 4 pets between operating and consulting. When he isn’t working, much of his free time is spent with his wife, and young son Jacob, who manages to keep mum and dad very busy! His Border Collie and 2 cats complete the household!

Lisa qualified in 2015 as a Veterinary Surgeon from Liverpool University. Prior to this, she graduated from Newcastle University in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in Zoology. From university, she began a career as an equine vet before deciding that the larger scope for diagnostics and more frequent opportunities in surgery lead her to pursue a career in small animals.

Hi

My name is Connor and I am a Student Veterinary Nurse at Bury Vet4Pets. I have wanted to become a Veterinary Nurse since I was at school. I started my RVN training in January 2022 after working at another local Vets as a Vet Care Assistant. My favourite part of nursing is being on the wards, caring for the patients, as I find this aspect of nursing really rewarding. In my spare time I love walking my dog, Buster and being outdoors. I also have a lizard called Mango.
