Hi, I'm Laoise (lee-sha for anyone struggling 😂). I graduated from the RCV in London in July 2020 and joined the Vets for Pets 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!
Hi, I'm Anna. I am a Veterinary Surgeon and I qualified in 2021 in Poland.

Head Veterinary Nurse
RVN, NCert Anaesthesia, Cert VN ECC & currently Completing Advanced Diploma in Animal Behaviour (Canine Level 5)
Before working at Vets for Pets Colne I have worked in various small animal practices in the South over 37 years.
My interests are in canine behaviour, client care and education of future veterinary professionals.
I have two black cats called Elfie and Goose, both were rescued and a black Staffie called Kray. I recently relocated to the area and love walking and swimming in the Dales, between training our dog and renovating our new house.
It has been our dream for many years to move North and the team at Vets4Pets have made my professional transition so easy, I'm so pleased to have found such a lovely practice.
I have been in practice for 10 years, qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2012 and have been with Vets for Pets Colne since 2015. I studied Animal Science and Veterinary nursing and I'm currently doing my veterinary nursing surgical certificate.
I have a keen interest in dermatology, having studied this and I also have a keen interest in ear care and surgery.
I have 5 cats at home and outside of work, I enjoy crafting, crotchet and cross stitch, which are mainly video game characters.
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...
I qualified as a vet nurse in 2019, and did my training at VetsforPets Colne. I have always been passionate about animals.
I live at home with my husband, my daughter and 2 dogs Ninny P the pug, and Nora a rescued frenchie.
I also make resin keepsakes for our lost pets, something I am very passionate about.
In my spare time I love camping and disappearing off into the countryside.

Hi I’m Amy, I’ve worked at Colne Vets for Pets since August 2018! No day is the same and I love meeting everyone’s furry family friends! I’ve rescued and hand reared a kitten from 3 weeks old brought into the practice and re-homed a gorgeous Lab puppy that couldn’t be sold by his breeder due to his condition, I also have my 2 bunnies & several fish tanks/ponds (thanks to my other half!) When not at work I enjoy spending time in the hot-tub, eating out & watching films with my little boy and ever-growing furry family.

Before joining Vets4Pets, I supported young people and adults with autism and mental health difficulties, and young people in care.
At home, I have a pet dog and cat, 3 working dogs, some dogs in training and some sheep! When I'm not busy looking after my animals, I enjoy sheepdog training, seeing friends, traveling and collecting books - with the intention of reading them all one day. I am also attempting to learn the guitar and ukulele.
