Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Justyn Loveridge bio

I graduated in 2006 from Bristol University and I also have a degree in Zoology. I have wanted to be a vet since a young age, having been inspired by my Grandmother who worked for many years for the Cats Protection League. She would often have orphan kittens and strays to look after and it was her dedication to these animals that gave me the desire and motivation to embark upon a career in the veterinary profession. This love of animals was further reinforced when I spent my summer holidays from school working on a friend’s dairy farm. I have always worked in small animal practice since qualifying and enjoy all aspects of veterinary work but particularly enjoy small animal medicine. in 2009 I completed a European School of Postgraduate Veterinary Studies Certificate in Small Animal Medicine. Opening my own practice has always been an ambition of mine as it gives me an opportunity to offer high quality veterinary care to the animal patients and a personal level of service to their owners. I have dreamt about being part of a veterinary practice that is a real help and benefit to the animals in the local community and I hope that this is what will be achieved by Vets4Pets Portsmouth. I live at home with my Wife and two young children, and a cheeky Bengal cat called Freddie. I enjoy going to football matches and photography.

Head Veterinary Nurse

My name is Louise and I’m Head Nurse at Portsmouth Vets4Pets. I qualified in May 2012 but I have been in practice full time since 2007. I have always been passionate about working with animals and knew at a young age this would be my career path. The job is both fascinating and exciting and every day is different! Aside from Nursing, I also train Student Veterinary Nurses and am a Clinical Coach. I enjoy doing this as it’s very rewarding and gives me the opportunity to pass on my experience. I have owned pets most of my life, and this includes my current cat Orion who is a very temperamental young man! As a pet owner I understand the bond between pet and owner and as a veterinary nurse I appreciate how much our animals mean to us all! I have a particular interest in birds and wildlife. In my spare time I enjoy reading and spending time with my friends and family.

Student Veterinary Nurse

I’m Katie, the student veterinary nurse at Portsmouth Vets4pets. Since a young age I have always had a passion for animals and after growing up watching and hearing stories from my mum’s nursing career, I decided that veterinary nursing was for me! I enjoy the busy lifestyle of the practice and the surprise of never knowing what’s going to walk through the door next. One of my favourite things about veterinary nursing is reuniting animals with their owners after caring for them and seeing how happy both the animals and clients are. I own two ‘Silver spotted British Shorthair’ cats called Lottie and Ruby who look just like little snow leopards! In my spare time I enjoy country walking, dancing and am a keen shopper!

I am one of the veterinary receptionists at Vets4Pets here in Portsmouth. I love the diversity of the practice, no two days are ever the same, and we have such a variety of pets coming to see us. I am the Pet Bereavement Counsellor at our practice and I will always make time for anyone who feels that they might benefit from my experience and skill set. In my childhood I remember always having pets, which included mice, hamsters, rabbits, canaries, cats (which I hand-reared from 3 weeks of age) and dogs, so I have good all round knowledge of most animals. My hobbies are dancing and hill walking as I love keeping fit and in my spare time I help in the bereavement department at a local hospice. I love my job and welcoming your pets!

Vets4Pets Portsmouth 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!
