Ruth Taylor

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

Read Ruth Taylor bio

Hello, I’m Ruth. I was brought up on a farm in Oxfordshire so was destined to work with animals! I trained and worked as a veterinary nurse for 5 years before deciding to go to vet school in Liverpool. I fell in love with the North West and haven’t left since! I worked in a few different practices since graduating in 2011, before joining Vets4Pets in February 2016. After two years I felt I knew the company well and was pleased to be able to open Vets4Pets Northwich in March 2018 as practice Partner. Time has flown by since we opened and we’re doing really well with lots of clients and pets registered. I enjoy all aspects of being a vet but especially the challenge and variety seen when consulting and getting to meet people and their pets. I have completed a post graduate Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice, undertaking modules in anaesthesia, pain management and emergency care. I am currently an MSc module in ultrasound. I have two Jack Russell/Miniature Dachshunds called Minstrel and Malteser, who come to work with me each day. I enjoy reading and going to the cinema and also attend my local church, where I sing in the music group.

Veterinary Surgeon

I qualified from the University of Bristol in 2004, and initially worked in mixed practice in East Yorkshire for 18 months before deciding to concentrate on treating companion animals. I moved to Shropshire and nearly 7 years working in the small animal department of a busy multi-branch practice, where I gained valuable experience including out-of-hours emergencies, and treating wildlife for a local wildlife centre.

In 2012, my husband and I moved to Qatar in the Middle East. We had our son not long after we arrived, and he was followed 18 months later by our daughter, so I decided to take a career break to be with them full time. We all returned to the UK in 2016 and moved to Cheshire to be close to family. I returned to work in September 2017, when my son started school. I worked part-time at Vets4Pets Warrington Winwick until transferring to Northwich when it opened, to be closer to home.

When I’m not at work I’m usually found running around after my kids, who keep me busy! I also enjoy needlework, and going to the gym. We have 2 cats, Beryl and Nancy, who are both rescue cats from my first job, and very well-travelled as they came to the Middle East with us. Beryl only has 3 legs, but she doesn’t let it stop her!

I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2013 and have developed my skills and knowledge while working in a variety of practices since. I particularly enjoy nursing our feline patients and in 2018 completed a further two years of study to gain my Diploma in Feline Nursing. I am passionate about creating a feline friendly practice environment, making the trip to the vets as enjoyable as possible for our feline friends and their owners.

I have a BSc (Hons) degree in Animal Behaviour and enjoy using my knowledge to enhance the care our patients receive. I have two cats Inca and Tai.

Growing up on a farm, I've been around animals from a young age. I went to Harper Adams University to study BSc (Hons) Veterinary Nursing & Practice Management. As an RVN I mostly enjoy theatre nursing and nursing clinics.

I have two very naughty Jack Russell crosses called Betty and Bertie, who keep me on my toes on a weekend of walks.

I joined Vets4Pets in January 2019 and love meeting all of your pets! I decided to work with animals after I completed my A levels as I didn't enjoy them! After this I knew I wanted to become a Nurse so I worked part time in a local vets and groomed dogs to gain experience working with animals.

As a Student Nurse I attend South Staffordshire College and hope to qualify in a couple of years. I go to college once a week and spend the rest of the week here learning practical skills. At home I have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy named George who always misbehaves, and a cat named Ron.

I started at Vets4Pets in February 2019 and loving every second. I have always had pets growing up and never known life without a dog. I have a dog called Ruby and a large family, who all love animals too, which range from horses to guinea pigs. I have been in many careers but I am new to the animal industry. I look forward to progressing this and developing my skills for the love of pets in the future.
