Practice Owner and Veterinary Surgeon

BVSc MRCVS

Read Dr Mel bio

I qualified from the University of Liverpool in 2013. After starting work in a mixed practice in North Wales, I then changed to small animal practice with a quick stint in South Africa doing some wildlife veterinary work. I spent 9 months working as a locum before settling here at Leigh. I have a keen interest in keeping veterinary visits as fear free as possible, as well as an interest in surgery, senior pets and rabbits. In my spare time I can be spotted running in the hills with my collie cross Jack who you may have spotted as the happy black and white dog on the Vets4Pets TV advert. I also have a keen interest in rugby and although I tend to watch it more than play these days I am looking to hopefully be getting back out on the pitch soon.

Hi. I am Sophie

I qualified from the University of Liverpool in 2012 and worked as a small animal vet in Liverpool for several years.

I started working at Vets4Pets Leigh in November 2020 and I have enjoyed meeting all the lovely animals and their owners over the last few months. Everyone has been very welcoming, especially during these difficult times.

I have a keen interest in small animal medicine; especially endocrinological, geriatric and feline cases.

I previously started a feline medicine certificate with the University of Liverpool, and I hope to resume this once my twin boys are a little older. When not working I enjoy spending with my family and our animals. We enjoy being outdoors and active

Hi, I am Juliana

I have been working in small animal practice since I graduated in 2017 from the Complutense University of Madrid, and I moved to the UK with my four cats in early 2019 to begin a new adventure!

My main interests are Internal and Feline Medicine, Anaesthesia and Dermatology, and I’m planning to start a Dermatology Certificate this year.

I have been volunteering in different animal charities in both UK and Spain for almost 15 years, and I foster and rehabilitate both dogs and cats who sadly don’t have families to call their own.

In my free time you can find me reading, playing my ukulele or playing fetch with my Cocker Spaniel, Teo.

Hi I am Stacey, I am a Client Care Advisor here at Leigh and I joined this great team in August 2018. I have been working with animals in a 24hr hospital for nearly 5 years before joining Leigh Vets4Pets. I have veterinary care assistant qualifications, admin qualification and I have completed my level 3 animal management.

When I can I enjoy going to the gym, jogging and socialising with my friends.

Hi I am Jane and I have recently joined the fabulous team here at Vets4Pets Leigh in December 2020 and I am really enjoying my role so far as Client Care Advisor.  

 
After working in Sales for over 12 years I decided it was time to ring some changes and to improve my work/home life balance and with my love of animals and working with people I worked for Vets Now for nearly 12 months as Emergency Receptionist before joining Vets4Pets.
 
I love all animals but have a particular soft spot for cats and in particular my own adorable moggy Leo!
 
I enjoy walking in my spare time, music and dancing, spending time with my family and socialising with friends.
