Joined the Practice in 2010.

I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 2007. 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 Vets4Pets 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. My true passion lies in surgery so any complex or weird and wonderful operation and I'm in my element!

I live in the South Leicestershire countryside with my husband, Ben and our son, Jenson. We have an extended four legged family comprising of two dogs, two cats and a horse. Outside of work I enjoy exercising the horse and dogs (sometimes together!), cooking and travelling.

originally joined Oadby Vets4pets in 2012 after graduating from the Royal Veterinary College. I spent 6 enjoyable years with the practice developing my skills from a new graduate vet. During this time my husband and I had two sons. In 2018, to fit in with family life, I left the practice and spent 2 years working mainly sole charge as an emergency and critical care vet, at an out of hours provider. Now that my sons are both of school age I am pleased to return to work with the team at Oadby. I look forward to seeing some old and some new faces! Given my interest in Emergency and critical care I still work some set out of hours shifts. Other than work, I spend most of my free time entertaining my boys. We also have two cats.

I qualified from Warsaw University of Life Sciences in 2017. I worked in some small animal practices in Poland since my graduation. I moved to the UK in January 2019 and have worked as a vet since. In January 2021, I relocated from Buckinghamshire to Leicester and joined Vets4Pets. I am keen on internal medicine - with primary focus on endocrinology - and some soft tissue surgery among other things.
In my free time I enjoy art exhibitions, reading nonfiction, playing video games and walking with my rescue dog Korek and getting to know the UK - particularly enjoyed South West during summer, Lundy Island and Snowdonia and have yet to explore Leicestershire!

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.

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 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.

Joined the practice in February 2020.

I have worked as a Client Care Advisor for a total of three years. I live locally with my husband and three teenage children, but best of all I’m also mum to our 4 amazing fur babies - Mhow & Neo are our senior cats, and Bella & Ned are our crazy pugs!

My favourite part of the job is meeting all our furry clients! Especially the PUG kind! I just can’t get enough of their squishy kisses!

I love being part of such a well led, fun and happy team where client care takes such a priority, but I especially love that every furry friend that we see is treated just like family, given such care and dignity (and of course lots and lots of cuddles & kisses!)
