Read Helen Pratt bio

Qualifying in 1997 from Liverpool University, I spent my first years in mixed practice in Cumbria and Derbyshire, before concentrating solely on small animal work, and have been practising in the Colne area since 2008. I have a great interest in internal medicine, and extended my knowledge in the completion of a General Practitioners Certificate in Small Animal Medicine in 2009. I have a particular interest in diagnostic imaging and dermatology. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with the hubbie and 2 daughters on the sheep farm with our 5 Border Collies, and intermittently annoying them all by playing the ukulele.

Hi, I'm Laoise (lee-sha for anyone struggling 😂). I graduated from the RCV in London in July 2020 and joined the Vets4Pets Colne team in August 2020. I have an interest in soft tissue surgery, opthalmology and neurology and hope to work towards further qualifications in these areas in the future.

I grew up in Cumbria with dogs but now have a rescue kitten called Matilda (who refuses to pose with me). I spend a lot of my spare time knitting with varying levels of success.
I'm very grateful I've found such a good practice with such an amazing and supportive team!

Hello, I’m Jaclyn. I graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2020, and started here at Colne the same year. I enjoy all aspects of general practice, but am particularly interested in medicine. Outside of work, I enjoy tending to my many indoor plants, and trying to gain the affection of my pet rabbits.

I have been in practice for 10 years, qualified as a registered veterinary nurse in 2012 and have been with Vets4pets Colne since 2015. Since then I have progressed to head nurse and now I’m practice manager. I have a keen interest in dermatology, and gained my BSAVA merit award in 2017. You’ll often find me looking down a microscope at micro organisms I’ve found in ears! Not only do I love being in theatre monitoring anaesthetics, But i also love buying new stationery for my new manager role!

At home, I enjoy geeky crafts - crochet and cross stitch and have done plenty of computer game related projects. I am also on my way to becoming a crazy cat lady, I have 3 already.

I have over 10 years of veterinary nurse experience, qualifying from Myerscough College in 2004. I am most enthusiastic about the surgical side of nursing but also enjoy giving excellent nursing care to patients who have to stay with us for a short while. I also have a very keen interest in behavior and love running puppy parties.

I live with my fiance and when not at work, I look after our young daughter and am currently renovating our house. I have a rescue cat called Matilda, which I hand-reared from a few weeks old, two Dutch rabbits called Mario and Pip, a tropical fish tank and an aviary with cockatiels and quail. I currently don't have a dog but am looking for a rescue one to fill the gap...

Hi, my name is Nudrat, but everyone here knows me by Dru! I am still a fairly new member of the team, I've started here as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in September 2021. I have graduated from Myerscough College in September 2020 and after that I worked for a small animal practice in Blackburn before moving to Vets4Pets in Colne. Since I'm still quite newly graduated I am interested in practically everything that there is and I'm very keen to learn everything I can so hopefully you'll see me around in consults as well as working in the back both in and out of the operating theatre and sometimes even in reception if needed. In the future I would really like to further develop my knowledge and work with exotics as they are so fascinating to me.

At home I've got a little lovebird, Banty, who is always glued to me whenever possible and I've also have rescued Hercules, a sweet dwarf hamster, from my previous job.
I am very excited to have joined such a busy work environment with a very hard working team that give their absolute best and cannot wait to keep on learning new things everyday!

Hi I’m Nicole and I’m a 2nd year veterinary nursing student currently studying at Hartpury University in Gloucester! I completed work experience here whilst at Myerscough College and I am thrilled to be back at Vets4pets Colne to complete my student nursing.

I have 2 dogs of my own along with a horse in which I have a keen interest in showjumping with, and hopefully will be aiming to compete on the national and international circuit with her in my spare time!

Hi, I'm Victoria, a 2nd year student at Vets4Pets Colne.

I started my animal studies with a Zoology degree from the University of Nottingham and later worked at Chester Zoo which sparked an interest in veterinary care of mixed species.

At Colne, I enjoy seeing weird and wonderful cases whilst working as a nurse- there's never a dull day! I hope to keep building on my knowledge and perhaps steer in the direction of anaesthesia and surgery in future.
