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 Edinburgh (Royal Dick Veterinary College) in 1992. I have been privileged to have worked in a wide variety of different types of small animal practice, including RSPCA, university first opinion and private practices. I have a passion for giving the best client care that I can and strive to offer the level of service that I would want for my own pet. I am incredibly fortunate in working with a fantastic team who are key in helping me deliver that vision. The opportunity arose to become a joint venture partner with Vets4Pets and now I am turning my dreams into reality. In my spare time I enjoy coxing pilot gig boats and am a member of Falmouth Gig Club. Pilot gigs are beautiful 32 foot long wooden boats that are rowed by a crew of six and are so named because they would take pilots out to incoming vessels 'back in the day'. Nowadays they are used for racing or exploring the hidden creeks of the Fal. I unwind by reading and gardening.
Dr Lucy James
Veterinary Surgeon and RCVS recognised Advanced Practitioner in General Small Animal Surgery
BVetMed (Hons), CertAVP(GSAS), MRCVS
I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 2007 and have worked in small animal practice in both the UK and South Africa before moving to Falmouth in 2014.
I have experience with a wide range of advanced surgical procedures and completed the RCVS advanced certificate in general small animal surgery in 2015. I particularly enjoy soft tissue surgery with specific interests in wound reconstruction and surgery for brachycephalic patients suffering from obstructive airway disease. I am also passionate about animal welfare and conservation and like to volunteer some of my time and veterinary skills to animal welfare organizations and conservation research initiatives.
Outside of work I enjoy a variety of water sports, beach boot-camp, hiking and cycling. My family also includes our small cat Robbie who was rescued and came back from South Africa with my husband and I.
I have been nursing animals for nearly 20 years and still feel very passionately about all aspects of my job. I hold a very keen interest in nurse clinics and am hoping to build these up within the practice.
Outside of work I have a busy family life with my husband, two children, two dogs, two rats, one rabbit and 2 horses.
I have been a registered veterinary nurse for 13 years and enjoy all aspects of working in a busy small animal practice.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband and little boy and we take long walks with our two collie dogs Charlie and Thea.
I am a qualified veterinary nurse and have been nursing for 15 years. I live in St Ives with my husband and our two beautiful children.
I own two dogs: Roxy (Jack Russell Terrier) and Louis (Hungarian Vizsla) and a horse called Brennex. As a family we love to cycle and enjoy kayaking around the lovely Cornish coastline.
I have been a qualified nurse for eight years and particularly enjoy surgical nursing and anaesthetics. In my spare time I love to ride Soldier, my Connemara X. I also have a retired pony called Gwenny who is eighteen years old and very sweet. When I'm not riding I'm out exploring Cornwall with my Springer Spaniel Ringo.
My name is Amy and I have been a qualified veterinary nurse for 3 years. I am particularly interested in medical nursing, radiography and lab work. When I’m not working I enjoy walking my 12yr old border collie Ace, keeping fit and also learning to play the piano. I also have a ginger cat called Jerry who I homed when he was found wandering the streets as a kitten and brought into work!
Having worked in an office environment most of my life, I am delighted now to be working in a job involving animals. My free time is spent with my dog called Sweep who is both a delight and a rogue!
I have previously worked both as medical and veterinary receptionist. I also bring knowledge and skills from the years spent supporting bereaved families and have trained with Ally Pet Loss service in order to enhance the support for owners experiencing the loss of a pet.
At home I have a young spaniel called Daisy who loves to walk on the dunes. I also have a white cat called Conan; he was a bit scared and quite vicious, but with love and patience he now sits on my lap, especially when I am doing crochet!
I moved to Cornwall from Birmingham 5 years ago and I love living by the sea, although I still get slightly freaked out by seaweed! I live with my son who I am told is a mini-me. I have recently qualified as an ANA (animal nursing assistant) which is great for me because as much as I like chatting to our clients, I like to spend time with our patients too.
I have a very naughty cat who wakes me up at 5am most mornings, although I wouldn't change him (maybe his bodyclock...!). When I am not at work I am more than likely outdoors, walking or riding my bike. This summer I am determined to master surfing.
I come from a background of working with adults who have learning difficulties- so this was a big change! I'm really pleased to be working in a role where I meet lots of different animals. At home I have two budgies who keep me entertained with their comical ways. One is called Christopher Squawken and the other is Ebrenne, which is Cornish for Sky.
