Orthopaedics and fracture repair

Our veterinary team have undertaken advanced training to allow us to perform orthopaedic surgery in our practice. If your pet develops an abnormality involving their skeleton or joints, such as elbow dysplasia, a patella (kneecap) that gets stuck, or a torn cruciate ligament, an orthopaedic procedure may help them.

Vets4Pets North Tyneside opened in 2001 following my desire to set up a working environment where the team really felt valued and respected. We pride ourselves on being able to offer tailor made working arrangements to suit each individual’s needs and provide a balance between work and home life.

I qualified from Edinburgh University, studying at the same time as Frances (although I was a couple of years below I hasten to add - sorry Frances). I have worked in a variety of different practices in various parts of the country, following my husband’s career. This involved treating all “creatures great and small,” ranging from tiny hamsters to bull weighing over a tonne. I have 5 dogs and a horse (if my daughter lets me ride him!).

Hi my name is Sach, I was born and raised in London where I often spent my weekends volunteering in reptile dens. I studied in Nottingham where my time was split between Vet School and delivering pizzas for Dominos! I eventually settled down in my favourite part of the UK (Blyth) and I am privileged to have been welcomed into the Vets4Pets team in 2019.

As a vet I understand that you’re the expert when it comes to your pet, I see myself as the specialist in diagnosis and treatment, but working together we can ensure that your little one is always kept in tip-top condition. I love all creatures great and small but hold a special place in my heart for rabbits and reptiles. I also really enjoy internal medicine or any aspects of veterinary medicine that challenges me to put my 'thinking cap' on.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time on the beach with my wife and twin girls. I also love running and often take part in The Great North Run, marathons and other endurance events. I look forward to meeting you all soon!

Ive always wanted to be a vet from my first memories as a child and I loved helping our furry friends. Working hard through school and university I finally graduated in 2017. My early years as a vet was working in local practices of my home country of  Poland. I have a keen interest in Ultrasound and moving to Vets4Pets North Tyneside helped me realise my passion. Frances and her team are great to work for and the North East is a great place to live. My other passions are Syrius my rescue cat and sailing.

Head Registered Veterinary Nurse

My co-workers and I are incredibly passionate about caring for our patients. I decided to get into nursing after completing a Zoology BSc Hons; I loved learning animal biology but soon realised my greatest passion was working with and helping animals. So I took a leap onto a new career path and never looked back! I have sleepy whippet called Ralph and two cats called Sheldon and Cooper. Sheldon also has several pet fish that he's extremely fond of.

Deputy Registered Veterinary Nurse

I joined the team here at Vets4Pets North Tyneside and Vets4Pets Morpeth in August 2017 alternating between both Practices.

At that time my main duties were working between reception and supporting the nursing team. Working out the back gave me the foundation and the dream to qualify as a Registered Veterinary Nurse. I am now very proud to be The deputy Head Nurse in practice.

I have joined an amazing team who all work well together and love to take care of Pets and their Owners.

At home I have two cats Tinkerbell and Spartacus (The Stalker) and Fly, my lunatic of a Border Collie who never seems to run out of energy & the adorable Eddie Jack Russel  I love walking through the Northumberland Countryside, walks on the beach, travelling when I can and spending time with my family and friends.

Animal Care Assistant

Hi I am Abbie, I joined the team in august last year and have enjoyed every second of working with the team. I have loved getting to work with clients and their pets.

 Since a kid I always dreamed about working with animals. Then when my rabbit, Alvin, had an operation and felt the joy and relief of the procedure going well that made me want to make others feel the same. I’m currently doing my veterinary care assistant but my aim is to become a registered veterinary nurse.

At home I have a rabbit called milo, a lurcher cross called Lucy and a tortoise called Cedric. Can safely say it’s a mixture.
