We are open for essential care only
In line with government guidelines, we are only offering medically essential appointments, so please contact the practice team before travelling. Our opening hours may also vary, so please monitor our webpage to keep up to date with the latest information.
We are taking steps to help keep you and our colleagues safe:
- If you do need to visit, we ask that only one person per pet comes along, to help reduce the number of people in the waiting area at any one time.
- Social distancing is crucial at this time. When arriving, you may be required to call ahead and wait to be invited in by a member of our team. You will be informed if this is necessary when you call us to make your appointment.
- Once inside the practice, we ask that you please respect a two metre distance from our colleagues and other clients.
- We are only accepting card payments to help minimise contact between you and our colleagues.
- If you can’t visit the practice and are concerned about your pet’s health, please contact us to discuss available options.
We will continue to share regular updates here and on our Facebook page. We thank you for your patience at this time.
Meet the team
I graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2013 having completed my veterinary degree. I completed my first degree in Animal Behavior and Welfare. My main area of veterinary interest lies in exotic animal medicine, including reptiles, birds, rabbits and small mammals. I have undertaken exotics training courses and placements in Australia, Czech Republic and America. I completed my post graduate certificate in Exotic Animal Medicine in 2015. I also have a particular interest in surgery. I like walking, travelling and going to the cinema. I have two cats, two corn snakes, three poison dart frogs and three ducks.
I graduated from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Ghent in 2018 and started working at the practice in January 2019. My interests are surgery and cardiology and in December 2019 I did an ultrasound course to learn and improve my ultrasound techniques. In my spare time I like to go out with friends and will often go back to Belgium to hang out with them. I do not have any animals in The UK, but my parents cat James gets a lot of cuddles and attention when I go back to Belgium for a weekend!
I graduated in Italy, at Teramo University on the 2017. During my studies I lived for one year in Cluj-Napoca, Romania for my Erasmus year.
I’m currently studying to obtain my Post-graduate Certificate in Internal Medicine of Small Animals.
My main interests in veterinary medicine are Internal Medicine, Imaging (Ultrasound, x-rays) and Exotics animals.
I love reading, travelling, going to the gym and the cinema.
At home, in Italy I have my lovely cat, Birba.
Hello, I’m Louise and I have worked at Vets4Pets Dover since we opened in 2015. I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2013, after studying for my Veterinary Nurse Diploma at Canterbury College. Since then, I have completed a Certificate in Veterinary nursing of Exotic species, as I have particular interests in the more unusual creatures we see at the practice. I also have keen interests in medical nursing, and laboratory work. I have a Bearded Dragon called Zeus, and a Border Terrier called Maisie, who keeps me busy in my spare time.
Hi my name is April and I am a registered veterinary nurse. I qualified at the end of 2017 and shortly after, starting working at Vets 4 Pets Dover Whitfield. I enjoy all aspects of nursing but particularly enjoy medical nursing and learning about rabbit behaviour, dentistry and toxicants.
Unfortunately, I do not have any pets of my own at home but we have a family dog called Scarlett, a Rottweiler cross, who I used to do agility with.
In my free time I like to be outdoors either walking, kayaking or going out on the bike. I also enjoy watching ice hockey.
I have been with Vets4Pets Dover since 2015. I started as a veterinary care assistant and after a year began training as a veterinary nurse, recently qualifying in November 2019. I take a keen interest in Cardiology and radiology.
I have a menagerie of animals, I have two guinea pigs called Hershey and Daisy. I have a hamster called Uncle Buck, a tortoise called Sheila, a German Shephard called Sam and a Thoroughbred called Tiz.
In my spare time I like to read, go to the gym and compete in dressage.
Hi, I’m Sam and I joined Vets4Pets Dover Whitfield in October 2018. I started my veterinary nursing career back in 2008 in a small animal practice. I’ve expanded my veterinary experience working in a mixed practice with farm animals and horses, and then in a charitable veterinary practice. I am now thoroughly enjoying the small animal and exotics cared for here in Dover with such a great friendly team. In my free time, I love to continue expanding my knowledge in the veterinary field (especially anaesthetics and feline medicine) and I love a good crime and mystery novel, and a good walk in the countryside.
I started in the veterinary industry in 2019 when I started working as a Veterinary Care Assistant. I hope to later study to become a Veterinary Nurse in the future. I love to travel having previously worked for British Airways as an air hostess. At home I have seven dogs who I love to take for adventures, a stick insect and a praying mantis named Bert.
Vets4Pets Dover Whitfield 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!
