How can you ensure you work in a practice providing the highest standard of veterinary care? How can you be certain you get enough time to listen to your patients and talk to their families? How can you be surrounded by a closely knit team all pulling together and treating every patient like their own pet? Katherine’s answer was simple, do-it-yourself! As a joint venture partner with Vets4Pets she was able to open her very own, brand new, purpose built, state of the art equipped and superbly staffed veterinary surgery in the heart of Penrith in March 2014. “I was born and bred in Kendal, the thought of living anywhere other than Cumbria has never crossed my mind. I know I can offer people from Penrith, the Lakes and the Eden Valley a local vets with a family feel and yet modern treatments tailored exclusively to small animals.” Katherine graduated in 2009 with distinction from Edinburgh Royal School of Veterinary Studies and gained invaluable experience working very hard at mixed practice in Alston. It must have felt a little like going back to James Herriot’s times, driving over the moors in the dead of night. In fact, these famous stories were Katherine’s early inspiration together with a talk by a local vet at her pre-school. At 3 ½ years of age Katherine decided there and then to be a vet. And to close the circle she is now giving talks to budding vets at Penrith schools. Shouldering the responsibility for her own practice and working long hours with unlimited dedication would be enough to fill anyone’s life. Katherine however goes home at the end of the day to look after her ragoll cat Wilbur, Spaniel dogs Paddy and Stanley, her children Eve, Elsie and Harris and her husband!

Vets4Pets Penrith is committed to bringing you affordable, high quality care via a modern, well equipped practice, including a lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray and ultrasound. Plus, on site car parking too!
