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
Registered Veterinary Nurse
BSc (hons) RVN Cert Exotics and Wildlife
I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2005 following a Degree and NVQ at Hartpury College. My first nursing position was in a large mixed practice in Birmingham where I stayed for 9 years, completing the City and Guilds Exotic Nursing Certificate in 2010. In 2011 I moved to Gloucestershire and spent 4 years in a small animal and exotic animal practice, gained the Institute of Leadership and Management Clinical Coaching certificate and coached a number of students to become qualified veterinary nurses. I have been with Vets4Pets Gloucester Barnwood since the practice opened in 2015 and have enjoyed the journey so far of seeing the practice develop and grow.
Outside of work I am kept busy by 3 dogs who I have competed in a variety of sports including agility, flyball, tracking and rally over the years. In 2019 my youngest dog and I were chosen to represent the South West Region of the UK at Crufts in the inter-regional rally obedience competition where we came a respectable 4th.
I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2004 whilst working in a Mixed Animal Veterinary Practice in Herefordshire.
During my 12 years in mixed practice I gained experience in many aspects of veterinary nursing. I also trained as a Canine Hydrotherapist working in a modern Rehabilitation Centre.
I joined Vets4Pets in September 2016 following a career break to start my family. Its great be back in practice & working with such a fantastic team!
At home, we have a variety of animals! Two lovely Lurchers, one old cat, six guinea pigs & a corn snake!
