I graduated from Edinburgh university in 1994 and since then I have worked in a variety of practices around the UK, including farm and mixed practices. For the last 12 years I have worked mainly in companion animal practice; most recently in a busy Veterinary hospital in Farnham. I have a particular interest in surgery, but see myself as a general practitioner. I like all animals and strive to give the best care to all my patients. We moved to Farnham in 2005 and apart from a short spell in Belgium, have lived here ever since. I enjoy running and cycling and like to explore the local countryside. We have 2 boys, so a lot of our time is spent playing in the nearby Farnham Park. I am incredibly excited about the opportunity to open a new surgery in Farnham with Companion Care. I believe it will be very fulfilling and I look forward to meeting you and your pets soon!

I was born in Barcelona and I always knew I wanted to be a vet. Finally, I graduated from Barcelona University in 2017. Over the past few years I’ve been visiting different practices in Spain and collaborating with the university, which has allowed me to put my skills into practice.  

I started to work with Vets4Pets recently, and I moved to Farnham for that reason. I’m especially interested in internal medicine. I love the consultations with your pets and I’m glad to help with anything I can. Despite this, I’m more than happy to work in other areas such as surgery, and to keep developing as a vet. I really enjoy living in Farnham and working alongside the lovely team here. 

In my free time, I love painting, doing yoga and going for walks in this amazingly green countryside. I still don’t have any pets, but it won’t take long. I’m a cat lover.

My name is Chiara and I come from Italy. After graduating in 2003, I worked for three years as a veterinary surgeon in nine vets first opinion and emergency hospital in Treviso. I moved to UK nearly twelve years ago. 

I could not resist witnessing the notorious English love for pets that I had always heard about! Since then I have worked as a locum vet all over UK and Wales with a 6 months break when I attended an internship in a private hospital in Pennsylvania. During that period I experienced the use of holistic therapy as an alternative to normal treatments for many different pet conditions, as well as of acupuncture and physiotherapy. 

When I came back in UK I attended an internship at Fitzpatrick Referrals where I had the opportunity to learn a huge amount about orthopaedic and neurology. For three years after that I attended a Certificate Course in Clinical Medicine. I have always loved animals and decided to be a vet when I was 5 years old. 

At 10 I decided that my dream was to become a vet, own a pick up track and practice my profession travelling around with a Great Dane. I haven’t managed to get the pickup track yet or a giant dog, but I definitely managed to become a vet, get married and have three beautiful and very energetic boys who keep my life on the go at ALL the times when I am not at work! 

The reason that makes my passion for the job ever so deep is the relationship with people. Beside my genuine love for animals and interest for anything that concerns medicine and surgery, I like dealing with the clients. I love the team work in the work place. I feel very lucky at working with Roger and the rest of the team nowadays. They are all great people with the same values and the same passion and dedication for such a challenging and wonderful job.

I have always loved animals and over the years I have helped out on farms with lambing, worked in local veterinary surgeries and volunteered at a wildlife hospital. 

After I graduated from university with a degree in Bioveterinary Science I came to Vets4Pets and have been here ever since. I started my veterinary nurse training in 2013 and qualified in 2016. 

I have had many different pets over the years but most recently I rescued a lovely cat, called Albert, who was brought into the surgery as a stray and is now thoroughly spoilt at home.

In 2008 I became an ambulance driver for Vets Now where I completed a First Aid and Emergency Treatment course. Soon after I began training as a veterinary nurse, from which I have since qualified. 

I have been a member of the team since opening and have enjoyed working with such a friendly team. 

I enjoy the outdoors and camping. I have a lovely rescue cat at home who was in a road traffic accident and brought in as a stray. Needless to say he found a home with me.

Registered Veterinary Nurse

From an early age, animals have played a big part in my life and I’ve always aspired to have a career working alongside them.  

I began studying Veterinary Nursing at University in 2014, where I had the opportunity to train at at Fitzpatrick Referrals. I enjoy all aspects of nursing, particularly post operative care, as seeing patients improve after long term management is so rewarding.

I couldn’t be without animals, they add so much happiness to our lives. I’m the owner of a mischievous young black Labrador named Ralph. He loves swimming and is known for finding the muddiest water possible!

 

I’ve recently joined Vets4Pets Farnham and I’m enjoying being part of an amazing veterinary team and getting to know all of your lovely animals.

I have always loved animals and from a young age decided I wanted to become a Veterinary Nurse. I started my degree in Veterinary Nursing at university in 2013. I carried out my year’s placement at Fitzpatrick Referrals, where I found my love for neurological and critical care cases. I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2016.

I joined Vets4Pets soon after finishing university and I’m enjoying working with such a friendly dedicated team.

 

I have recently spent time travelling around Southeast Asia, where I fulfilled my dream and spent a week working at an elephant sanctuary in Thailand. On my travels I also worked in various dog sanctuaries where I nursed the rescue dogs. At home I have a crazy Spaniel named Maisie, who loves chasing squirrels.

Having grown up with every animal imaginable my love for animals started right from the start. I previously worked with horses for many years (I currently own 2!) then set up my own dog walking and house sitting business which I owned for four years before finally deciding to follow my dream career and train to become a veterinary nurse.

I graduated from Cirencester College in 2018 with a diploma in Animal Care & Management which I studied for 2 years. During those 2 years I worked in a large veterinary hospital which helped me gain experience with emergency cases and developed my love for critical care patients.

I have previously worked alongside animals since I was little by volunteering in various stables, wildlife centres, kennels and veterinary practices.

 

I moved to Farnham in August 2018 to join the Vets4Pets team to start studying for my Veterinary Nursing qualification. At home I have 1 Netherland Dwarf rabbit called Mischief who is 7!

Practice Manager

I joined Vets4Pets in 2016 as a part time receptionist for Wokingham. After being with the company for 18 months I became Practice Manager before making the move over to Farnham in April 2018.

I have always had a passion for animals and grew up with dogs and cats in the family home. I used to horse ride a lot in my spare time and spent every minute I could helping and getting involved with the local stables.

 

After having my children I was keen for them to experience and share the love that a pet can bring and to learn how to care for them. Our first pet was a rescue dog called Lenny, we had the privilege of loving him for 12 years. We currently own another rescue dog called Maddie and 10 Guinea Pigs! Working in this environment it is very hard to say no to a piggie in need!

Since I was a child I have been obsessed with animals. My family always had animals in the house including cats, rabbits, guinea pigs chickens and an African Grey parrot named Milo. 

Having worked in retail for local pets stores, with a short stint as a florist, I jumped at the chance to join the team at Vets4Pets and have never looked back. 

In my spare time I enjoy exploring the countryside and coastline with my husband and rescue dog Mable.

Veterinary Care Assistant

I have always wanted to work with animals from such a young age, whether that was rescuing, veterinary work or just caring for friends and families pets. I have owned a large variety of animals whilst growing up, such as dogs, cats, guinea pigs, horses, fish and even an axolotl.

I started my animal journey in 2015 by attending Sparsholt College and studying animal management for 2 years, college was amazing and I learnt so much whilst being there and enjoyed every minute of it I have been working here since February 2018 and I have gained so much confidence in my work and am very happy with how far I have come since starting my journey.

 

I am currently a veterinary care assistant here but going on to do my nurse training to become a qualified RVN.

Receptionist

I have always loved animals and always wanted to be around them. When I finished school I did a public services course and decided it wasn’t for me and I wanted to work with animals instead. I then did another college course in Equine Management and then went on to complete a degree in Equine Therapy and Rehabilitation.

As soon as I finished university I decided to look for a job away from horses as I had been in education with them for so long and came across working for Vets4Pets. I currently have three dogs and one horse which keeps me busy when I’m not working here.

Emz

Receptionist

Read Emz bio

My name is Emz, and I am a Receptionist for Farnham Vets4Pets, since April 2019. I started working for Vets4Pets a number of years ago, when I was living in Worcester, as a receptionist at the Worcester, Droitwich, and Malvern branches. 

When I'm not working at the vets, I am an actor, specifically within the Scare industry, and have acted with companies such as Merlin, working at Thorpe Park after being featured on ITV as a zombie! I was lucky enough to also be featured live on This Morning for Halloween 2018! 

At home, I share my bedroom with my rescue dog, Beretta, a scruffy Rottweiler cross Schnauzer, who is my everything. We have been through a lot together, and her problems have given me a keen interest in dog behaviour, which I would like to investigate further at some stage. We also share our home with two other dogs, belonging to my parents, Dave and Megan, the American Bulldog, and Rottweiler. As you can tell, we have a huge love of big, misunderstood breeds in our household! Julian Slink, the siamese fighter fish, also inhabits our lounge, and watches over everything we do. Growing up, we had all manner of animals, ranging from giant african land snails, hamsters, gerbils, budgies, and chickens, to the more run of the mill dogs, cats, rabbits, and guinea pigs! When I struck it out alone, living in Worcester, I also kept reptiles, including corn snakes, hognose snakes, leucistic black rat snakes, boa constrictors, amazon tree boas, bearded dragons, and green basilisks. At one stage, I shared a bedroom with 28 different species of snake. I also had two very unusual mammals in african pygmy hedgehogs. 

When I'm not dealing with my myriad animals, I knit Harry Potter inspired scarves, I cosplay as various characters from my favourite shows, films, and games, I also attend conventions like ScareCON, and listen to scare industry podcasts, visiting as many events and attractions as I can around Halloween as I am able. Myself and Beretta enjoy playing fetch, and getting active together, and we are looking to start a little geriatric agility in the garden to keep her fit.

Vets4Pets Farnham 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!
