Meet the team
Clinical Director & Veterinary Surgeon
Sally graduated from the University of Liverpool in 1998. Starting her career as a Mixed Animal Vet in North Yorkshire, Sally soon gravitated toward Small Animal Practice, allowing her to focus on providing exceptional care for companion pets.
Sally decided to make the move to Northern Ireland with her family, and we are delighted to have her join our team at Vets4Pets Newtownards, where she looks forward to getting to know our fantastic clients and their pets alike! Sally enjoys a wide range of medicine and surgery, and has a keen interest in progressing her ultrasound skills.
In her free time, Sally enjoys getting to spend quality time with her family and her own pets, including her cheeky ex-racehorse Frankie.
We hope you will enjoy getting to know Sally as much as we have!
After 7 years working as an Animal Nursing Auxiliary, Laura enrolled in Greenmount College and gained her Veterinary Nursing qualifications in 2015.
Laura has a particular interest in medical nursing and is determined to make all her patients feel loved and nurtured. She is also a qualified Pet Health Counsellor and runs her own clinics, giving specialist advice.
Laura has a dog called Mitch, a colourful little character with the ability to brighten anyone's day and a cat called Lenny, who Laura couldn't say no to when he was handed into the practice as a stray in much need of some TLC!
Rhianna completed her studies in Animal Care and Animal Management at Belfast Met and CAFRE, and she qualified as an Animal Nursing Assistant in 2022. We were delighted to have Rhianna join our team at the start of 2023, as she is fantastic with both our patients and clients alike!
Rhianna has 2 dogs, a senior Jack Russell, Lola, and a super energetic young Dalmation called Lexi. Rhianna spends a lot of her free time trying to tire Lexi out through walking, throwing the ball and mentally stimulating her with lots of games and treats - a full time job in itself.
We're really excited to support Rhianna's progress as she works towards becoming a Registered Veterinary Nurse with Vets4Pets Newtownards!
Kat joined us in 2019 as a Client Care Advisor, and is now our Practice Manager. Kat has an abundance of customer service experience and previously worked in the funeral industry, but her love of animals swayed her to change careers and enter the veterinary world!
Kat is a dog lover and has a Black Labrador called Hollie and a bouncy Golden Retriever called Charlie.
Kat looks forward to welcoming clients and patients, existing and new, to our modern purpose designed practice!
Melissa joined the practice in October 2020 as part our Client Care team. She previously worked in the optical industry but then decided that her love of animals would eventually bring her to us.
At home she has a young daughter and a husband, along with a beautiful little rescue Whippet called Moe to keep her busy on her days off.
Melissa loves all animals, big and small and welcomes everyone into the practice with a smile.
Steph is the most recent addition to our wonderful Client Care team, joining us in July 2023. Steph previously worked in the public sector and brings a wealth of customer service experience along with her. Her love of both people and animals makes her a very welcome addition to our growing team!
Steph has a very energetic Springer Spaniel called Benji, and when Benji isn't running Steph off her feet, he loves to cuddle up on the sofa and watch Steph's favourite TV programmes with her.
Our Vets4Pets practice in Newtownards is run by a caring, professional and experienced team. We treat all pets as if they were our own and we're here to support you if your pet ever becomes unwell or needs medical treatment.
We opened our doors in May 2017, with the latest technology, in house lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray, ultrasound and surgical theatre. We offer Gold Standard care and always provide the best treatment possible.
We have an onsite car park, with plenty of spaces for clients and we are and we are right on the edge of the town centre, which is great for locals who are unable to get transport.
