Dr Carl Regan

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

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.

From Longford in Ireland, I qualified at University College Dublin. Moving to England I opened the Companion Care Surgery in Ashford in 2007. My particular interest is internal medicine. I have a rescue cat from Gibraltar called Bambino who very much makes himself at home whenever he visits the surgery, and a naughty little schnauzer crossed border terrier named Raya who comes to work every day and keeps us all busy with her cheeky antics.

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!

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.

Registered Veterinary Nurse

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 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.

I have been involved with dogs and cats all my life and I'm passionate about animal welfare. My Grandmother was a breeder of cocker spaniels, and I used to breed, show and judge basset hounds, winning B.O.B at Crufts. I previously worked as a pet advocate, advising dog and cat owners on nutrition. I have two British bulldogs and three grandchildren, who take up most of my free time.
