We’re still here for you and your pets

Whilst we are still only open for medically essential and emergency appointments (in line with the government guidelines), if you have any concerns about your pet’s health care needs, please don’t hesitate to contact us, to see how we can help. We now offer a range of services to support you and your pets - such as remote consultations and collection or delivery of some products if your pet is on our Complete Care Health Plan.

If you are visiting us, please note we are taking steps to help keep you and our colleagues safe, so please respect the following social distancing guidelines:

  • 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 at your local practice, you may need to wait outside until a member of the team invites you in.
  • 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 us and are concerned about your pet’s health, please contact us and a member of the team can discuss available options. We will continue to share regular updates here and on our Facebook page. We thank you for the patience at this time.

I qualified at Liverpool University in 1997. After a couple of years working on the Wirral I relocated to Dorset and worked in several local practices. In 2003 I took the plunge and opened my own practice on Ashley Road and 14 years later am very proud of the quality service offered by the whole team at Poole Vets4Pets. I have over 20 years’ experience in veterinary medicine and my special interests include skin conditions and all types of surgery. I live locally with my vet husband, two young children, a black Labrador and two extremely fluffy rescue cats from Margaret Green Animal Rescue.

Hello! My name is Tori and I joined Vets4Pets in October 2016. I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2011 and have been working in small animal practice ever since. My professional interests include internal medicine, imaging, clinical nutrition and dentistry. I have a teeny tiny dog called Maya who comes to work with me every day and I really enjoy taking her for walks along the beach and around Bournemouth. I am an active member of my local church and I also love running, cross-training and swimming. I balance my love of exercise with a healthy love of baking and I keep my colleagues supplied with freshly baked goodies as much as possible!.

I graduated from Nottingham University in 2013 and joined V4P Poole in early 2015 after working in a small animal practice in Salisbury and travelling in Australia. I started an MSc in One Health in September 2016 and so I’m now working part time here at Vets4Pets Poole. My particular interests include dermatology and soft tissue surgery. I have a rescue cat called Mozart, Earl of Blandford, who is much loved!
