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.

Joined the Practice in 2010. I qualified from the RVC in 2007 gaining my BVetMed MRCVS. Since then I have gained further qualifications in animal behaviour, acupuncture and small animal surgery. I became Practice Director at Oadby in 2012, and have also helped set up another two Vets4Pets clinics in Rugby. I genuinely enjoy the variety that working in general practice brings along with the additional challenges of running busy clinics. However, my true passion lies in operating so any complex and weird and wonderful surgery and I'm in my element! I live in the South Leicestershire countryside with my husband Ben, our 2 dogs, 2 cats and a horse. Outside of work I enjoy exercising the horse and dogs (sometimes together!), cooking and travelling.

I graduated from Liverpool University in 2016. Growing up my family always had a large menagerie of different pets so it was to be expected that one of us would end up working with animals! We currently have 3 dogs, 6 cats, a parrot and a bunny.
My particular passions include small animal surgery, exotics and end of life care.
In my spare time I am usually kept busy by my 2 year old son and like cooking for friends and family, reading, yoga and meditation.

I have recently graduated from University of Veterinary Medicine Budapest. In college I enjoyed subjects such as Lab Diagnostics and Surgery.

I have always grown up with lots of pets. My first pet was called a cat called Sassy, but looking back on it, in the 20 years I had her I was more her pet.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends and family, outdoors, running, cycling and taking trips home to see my horse Izzy and my dog Pippa.

I am the VCA at the practice and help assist the nurses and vets with daily routine jobs and tasks.
I have lived in Leicester my whole life and I have just recently got a new house with my partner of over 3 years. We are currently on the hunt for a little furry addition to our family (which won’t be too long). I have always been very passionate about improving an animal’s quality of life and insuring they receive the best care they can get. I worked for the RSPCA for 7 years before joining the Vets4Pets team.
In my own time l enjoy watching horror movies and documentaries at home but I am also a very sociable person and spend most of my days off out and about. I am extremely excited to be the first fully employed male to join the Oadby Vets 4 Pets team to further my 10 years’ experience. I am truly honoured and grateful to be working with such a hard working team.
Areas of interest: Complex surgeries and recovery of the patients. Also ultra sound scanning.

I live with my gorgeous cat Paddy. Oh and my husband Jay! I enjoy Pilates and running - generally keeping fit. I love spending time with family and friends socialising.
I love every part of my job and I cannot say that I have a particular interest in just one area but I do love consultations and being able to help clients with any problems they may have with their pets. My priority is making sure that all of our in-patients are cared for to the highest standards on a daily basis.

I have two grown up children and one grandson and a very lively Sprocker called Elvis and a not so lively tortoise called Rocket.  I really enjoy going to the theatre with family and friends.

I love the variety of work that each day brings to the practice. We have a lovely working atmosphere with colleagues and good relationships with the clients and their pets. I feel most rewarded when a poorly pet goes home better.
