I graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2000. I went on to gain a wide range of experience working in four very different small animal practices in the south-east. It has long been my ambition to run my own practice and I am looking forward to bringing together all of the skills that I have acquired in those positions to provide the best possible service to the patients and clients of Vets4Pets Crawley.

I completed the General Practitioner Certificate in Small Animal Medicine in 2005, but also particularly enjoy surgery and exotic animal medicine. Away from work I enjoy travelling, eating out and cooking. Fortunately I am also a keen runner which helps to compensate for my more indulgent pastimes!

I graduated from the Agrarian University of Havana in Cuba. Since then I have been working in small animal practice. I have had the opportunity to work in a wide range of different small animal practices in Cuba, Spain, and more recently in the UK which has allowed me to gain a valuable experience as veterinary surgeon

I enjoy all aspects of being a small animal veterinary surgeon, but I have a particular interest in emergency medicine and critical care, surgery, and internal medicine

In my free time I like travelling, dancing and spending time with family and friends.

I graduated from the University of Bristol in 2011 after completing a BSc (Hons) in veterinary nursing and practice administration. I have always been passionate about animals and being a veterinary nurse is my dream job. Being a head nurse comes with challenges of its own but these challenges I embrace. I am also a clinical Coach meaning I train the student veterinary nurses. As of this year I have taken on the new role of JVP (joint venture partner) which will allow for greater flexibility and management. I love all aspects of my job in particular medical nursing, Geriatric nursing and rabbit nursing. I have completed my rabbit nursing Diploma and am currently undertaking the emergency and critical care nursing diploma. At home I am owned by my house rabbits; Beast and Brian. I also have 3 cats Boris who lives with my parents and my most naughty children Zig and Zag.

I grew up in Southern Ireland and was extremely fortunate to share my wonderful childhood with animals of all different shapes and sizes! I trained in Edinburgh, Ireland and England qualifying in 2001. After which, I went travelling around the world and was lucky enough to work in Morocco. Since then I worked a various places included the RSPCA in Putney.

 I was lucky enough to be employed by Vets4Pets 2.5 years ago on a part time basis. I love all aspects of my job and have a special interest in animal welfare. I very much enjoy caring for our inpatients and do enjoy the buzz of a busy prep room!

When I am not at work I am exercising by my two dogs, Otter a cheeky border terrier who came from my work at the RSPCA and Moose, a wonderfully loyal Labrador. We also have a lovely pony called Foresta and Weasel, our little domestic short haired cat who also came from the RSPCA in Putney. She is adored by the children and is lucky enough to be the only animal allowed upstairs!I enjoy exercising when I am not being mum; I especially love going for 5-10km runs. The dogs get super excited when the trainers go on!

Hi, I am Max. I became a qualified nurse in September 2016. Before then I had varied jobs including social care and aviation. I started at Crawley when the practice first opened as a veterinary care assistant, then went on to do my nurse training. The areas of my job that I find most rewarding are geriatric and medical nurse clinics and radiology (x-rays).

I am lucky enough to be owned by Henry and Charles, my two rabbits, and by Seabass and Marcel, my two Ragdoll cats. When I’m not at work, I am running around after my beautiful daughter, Amber. My hobbies include yoga, signing and cooking. I also love a night out having cocktails with my friends.

I am also a Clinical Coach and responsible for teaching and coaching student nurses through the practical side of their training.

At home I have two crazy spaniels; Bug & Ron, seven bantam chickens and a rabbit; Grayham. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, baking and walking my dogs through the countryside.

I have currently been working at Vets 4 Pets for just under a year, in that time I have managed to go from doing work experience, to being a receptionist and finally my current role as a VCA. I will hopefully be starting my nursing course in September of this year, which I am extremely looking forward to start learning new aspects of the role as a nurse and to finally be that bit closer to having my dream Career. 

Before working here I was a part time receptionist at K2 leisure centre. I currently have three cats, Primrose, Pip, and Misty as well as two dogs, Teddy and poppy. I look forward to my future at Vets 4 Pets as I train to be a Veterinary nurse.

Before joining V4P, I worked at Pets at Home for nearly two years, during which I took a month out to travel around Borneo. I spent this time helping and living in small villages, teaching in schools and volunteering in conservation projects. This fuelled my passion for travel and I hope to return to Borneo in the future. Meanwhile, in England I like to spend my spare time taking my beagle Harley on adventures in the great outdoors.

Hi, I’m Kara and I have recently joined the team this year. It is going amazingly and I am thoroughly enjoying getting to know all our clients and their animals. I used to work in a nursery with pre-schoolers, so I am used to the chaos! It really is great fun.

I have a Jack Russell called Peanut who clings to me like a baby. I also have a tortoise called Shelden and a pygmy hedgehog called Hank. I do like our exotic animals the best, and I hope to get an iguana in the future. In my spare time I enjoy playing video games and playing musical instruments. I can already play the ukulele and now I'm learning the piano.

Before starting my role as a veterinary care assistant, I previously worked for a year as a dog walker/pet sitter. It was this role that made me really pursue a career in animal care. So far, I have learnt so much since joining Vets4Pets and I am hoping to go onto study Veterinary Nursing in the near future.

At the moment, I have a house rabbit called Willow but I have grown up around dogs my whole life and I have a love for Pugs; I hope to get one in the near future.

Vets4Pets Crawley is committed to bringing you affordable, high quality care via a modern, well equipped practice, including a lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray and ultrasound. Plus, on site car parking too!

The friendly team can't wait to meet all of their new clients!
