Read Amie Hanks bio

I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 2007 and initially remained there teaching Veterinary Anatomy and Physiology before the lure of working in practice took over and I moved back home. My first two roles were in another Vets For Pets clinic and then subsequently an independent Tier 3 veterinary hospital in South Yorkshire.

During this time I met my now husband hence the move to Leicestershire and Oadby Vets For Pets in 2010. Since qualifying I have also 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 Vets For Pets clinics in Rugby.

I enjoy the variety that working in general practice brings along with the additional challenges of owning and managing a busy clinic. I'm immensely proud to head up our phenomenal team and the passion, dedication and skills that they all have. 

Outside of work I enjoying spending time with my family and pets with my hobbies including horse riding, walking, cooking and travelling.

I qualified from the University of Surrey in 2023. I have a keen interest in surgery so I spent some time volunteering at a spay and neuter clinic in India just before I started at the practice. I’ve also spent some time in South Africa volunteering with local wildlife vets to support the work involved in the conservation of endangered species like rhinos.

I joined the practice in 2023 after transferring from another Vets4Pets. While at Oadby I've transitioned into the Practice Administrator role, and before this had been working as a Client Care Advisor since 2021.
I've recently moved to Leicester and have a young cat called Alfie who is full of love and energy. In my time I've had dogs, cats, birds and all manner of small furries. I can't wait to bring some more into my home.
I take a huge amount of joy in my job, getting to see the progress of our patients as they get better, and being able to help in whatever way we're able to is incredibly satisfying, and every day has a new surprise!
In my spare time I like going for walks with my partner, cooking, digital art and playing video & tabletop games.

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.

I joined the practice October 2022 after transferring from another Vets4Pets in Sheffield. 

I have returned home back to Leicester with my retired racing greyhound, Romeo (Racing name was Romeo Superhero!),  who I adopted in 2018 from the Greyhound Trust. I used to volunteer at the trust every week to walk and groom the Greyhounds and loved it!

In my spare time I am a freelance illustrator/artist specialising in fantasy themed art and pet portraits but I also love playing video games, exploring new places and walking with Romeo. 

The best thing I enjoy about working at Vets4Pets is meeting the clients and the variety of pets we have attending the practice daily - even better when I can get pet cuddles too!
