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
Rebekah has been working as a vet for three years. Interestingly she has known Arthur since she was a teenager doing work experience and is excited to work with him and the team at Vets4Pets Newtownabbey.
Community spirit is an important part of Rebekah's life, currently she is getting stuck into the Gleno Valley Young Farmers Club.
On her evenings off she can be found riding her horse, gardening or getting roped into helping out on her partner's family farm.
Cathy has nearly 14 years experience working in a veterinary clinic. She was working as a nursing assistant, went on to do her vet nurse training and passed with flying colours, and afterward also trained up nurses herself. Prior to that, it was working with horses in a riding school and a stud farm, so she's pretty much always been working with animals.
Outside of work she looks after and rides her horse, goes to the gym, she is involved with a whole bunch of clubs and voluntary organisations:- motorcycle club (particularly the charity ride outs), classic car club, race marshall, Red Cross ambulance and first aid teams ... and occasionally sleeps! "It's amazing what you can squeeze in once you've got the kids out of the house" At home she's got her German Shepherd Tara, cat Ace, and smallish rescue dog Bosen (aka Bosey Bear).
Chelsea has been part of the team from close to the opening, initially working Sundays on reception whilst doing the animal Management course at Newtownabbey NRC before progressing to full-time receptionist.
Last year she completed the animal nursing assistant course, and this September 2018 she moves another step on by starting the veterinary nurse course at Greenmount. you'll still find her at reception plenty, ably assisted by her Customer Experience Enhancement Officers Wesley and Dylan.
Our receptionist Sandra has been deeply involved in the world of pets for many many years. She worked in Jollies, before moving to Pets At Home Newtownabbey, Then PAH Belfast, and then moved into the reception post here at Vets4Pets. She's been breeding and showing dogs for a long time, visits Crufts regularly and has run dog training groups on and off. She does like to point out she only breeds the Retrievers and only at a gentle pace to keep the Havergrove line going, not all the animals! She owns that many pets - from her assistant Megan of course, to cats, the retrievers, to Newfoundlands, and a rescued tortoise name Mildred she has to take off her shoes to count them all! The numbers have swelled before Christmas to include 4 lovely puppies who are all doing fine.
Christine has almost 15 years of experience working in a veterinary clinic. She initially worked as a veterinary receptionist/nursing assistant until she left to raise her family of three boys and one girl, before returning to the same job almost 20 years later once they'd all reached school age.
Christine takes care of our reception and also does some administration and account management
At home, Christine has Cocoa the cat. She likes sewing, knitting, cooking and gardening.
Vets4Pets Newtownabbey 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!
