I am the Joint Venture Partner for the Guernsey Vets4Pets surgeries, opening our St Martins branch in 2004 and our St Sampsons branch in 2010. I grew up in Cape Town, South Africa and I graduated with my first degree of a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Ichthyology: Fisheries science, from Rhodes University and completed my Bachelor of Veterinary Science in 2000 from the University of Pretoria, Onderstepoort. I have worked in Cape Town, Saudi Arabia and the UK but have been in Guernsey since 2004 when I opened the first practice. I particularly enjoy orthopaedic, neurology and soft tissue surgery and have completed the Post Graduate Degree in Small Animal Surgery in 2018,  the Advanced Orthopaedic Certificate in 2019 and have just finished the Advanced Soft Tissue Surgery Certificate. I have recently been recognised by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeon with the award of Advanced Veterinary Practioner in Surgery.  I enjoy traveling and spending time gardening and walking the dogs.

I was born and grew up in Tel-Aviv, Israel, constantly surrounded by animals. I could never imagine my life without them and becoming a vet was just a matter of time, along with support from my parents. In 2010, I graduated from the University of Kosice in Slovakia with a degree in Veterinary Medicine. After graduation I moved to London where I worked in a variety of different small animal practices and referral hospitals. In July 2013, I moved to the island with my wife Clarisse and our cat Georgette. My family has now grown larger and we have two beautiful little girls, Alma and Nina who were both born here. I have a strong interest in Radiology and I have recently qualified as a post-graduate Certificate holder in Diagnostic imaging (Radiography, Ultrasonography, CT and MRI modalities). My passion continues and I am already busy studying for the next level in this field.

I was born and grew up in Vienna, Austria. I graduated as Veterinary Surgeon from the University of Vienna in 2001.

I am completing my Post Graduate Degree in Small Animal Internal medicine and I am responcible for administering our internal Dermatology referral clinic. I love the island life, enjoy the beach and taking our two dogs Eevee and Sebastien for walks.

I graduated from Cambridge University in 2003 and worked in mixed and small animal practice in the UK before settling in Guernsey in 2011. Having a fascination for eyes and ocular disorders I spent several years spending every spare minute with various Veterinary Ophthalmologists before passing the Royal College Certificate in Veterinary Ophthalmology in 2011. I now perform many of the eye surgeries on Guernsey pets using our fantastic operating microscope at the St Martins surgery. In the last 3 years I have become very interested in pain management and enrolled on the Western Veterinary Acupuncture and Chronic Pain Management Certificate. I now run the Acupuncture service for Vets4Pets based at the St Sampsons surgery, the Wellness Centre. Here I work with our Physiotherapy and Hydrotherapy team to help animals in pain or having post-surgical rehabilitation. I love getting to know my patients and seeing them go from strength to strength! Apart from work I have 2 daughters and a tribe of rescue animals who keep me happy and busy!

I joined the team at Vets4Pets at the end of January 2017. Working with animals is something I have always wanted to do. Since qualifying as a RVN, I have taken on a greater management role within the nursing team, and was thrilled to be offered the Head Nurse roll in 2021. Our team has grown and we now have a number of veterinary nurses and veterinary care assistants, and I am very proud of how they have managed to meet our clinical expertise and client care during the very challenging covid period.

I left school after my 12th year in order to pursue a career in animal care, and after applying for a job was luck enough to be picked up by the Vets4pets team as a trainee care assistant in October 2015. I have lived with animals all my life and currently own three cats, two dogs and two parrots and have volunteered at the local animal shelter since 2012 where I discovered my passion for animals.

Nikki Shingler

Veterinary Physiotherapist

Read Nikki Shingler bio

My name is Nikki Shingler and I am a fully qualified, IRVAP accredited, veterinary physiotherapist at the Guernsey Vets4Pets Wellness Centre in St Sampson.

I have always loved animals - volunteering at animal rescue centres and veterinary practices from a young age. Naturally I wanted to continue this passion and create a career from it. I decided to study a BSc (Hons) degree in Veterinary Physiotherapy at Harper Adams University. There I learnt how veterinary physiotherapy can be used to help a range of animals. As well as three years of learning theory and practical skills, I had a year gaining experience on an industry placement. I spent this time at an equine veterinary practice and a small animal rehabilitation centre, complete with a hydrotherapy unit. It was whilst at the rehabilitation centre that my passion for small animal physiotherapy really grew, I learnt so much about how to care for animals with a range of conditions that I felt compelled to continue in this field.
Veterinary physiotherapy involves the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal and/or neurological conditions using a range of therapeutic modalities. It can be used to manage an ongoing condition, after surgery or injury, and promote fitness. The aim is to restore or maintain function and physical wellbeing. As a veterinary physiotherapist, we work alongside our Vets4Pets veterinary surgeons and nursing team to provide a holistic animal care plan which will involve medicinal options and may include acupuncture as well.

I was born and grew up in London and qualified as a veterinary nurse in 1992. I worked for the RSPCA Putney Animal Hospital for many years as a theatre staff nurse and am proud to be the first veterinary nurse to have ever performed surgery on TV for Animal Hospital whilst studying for my surgical diploma. I moved to Guernsey in 2004 and worked with Les as his Head Nurse, helping to build the business to where it is today. I left in 2011 for 3 years to pursue other things but have now come back as Practice Manager. I have two mad cats at home, ‘Jock’ and ‘Dexter’ and am currently studying for a veterinary management degree. In my spare time, I enjoy drawing and painting and have my own pet portrait website where I do commissions.
