I was born and bred in Manchester, attending Manchester High School for Girls. I qualified as a Vet in 1996 from the University of Liverpool and have worked in and around Greater Manchester ever since. My four-legged family includes two Italian Spinones, Cocoa and Frank and two rescued cats, Phoenix and Betty, who has three legs. The two legged family includes a husband and two sons. And not forgetting the tropical fish and koi! I am proud to be serving the pets and their humans of Prestwich and the surrounding areas. I am confident that you will be happy with the personal care that my team and I aim to provide.

I qualified as a Vet in 2007 from the University of Glasgow and have spent time working in Scotland and Lincolnshire before settling in Greater Manchester in 2012. I joined the team at Prestwich Vets4Pets in September 2017. I have a keen interest in both soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery and look forward to being able to help expand the surgical treatment options we can offer to our clients. I share my home with my wife, two giant slobbery dogs, Henley (St Bernard) and Yoshi (Newfoundland), Neko the “normal” cat and Chris the Ninja Pirate a one eyed sneezy nutty Bengal cross. In my spare time I love tinkering, we are currently restoring a 1965 Volkswagen camper van when I can pull myself away from building and flying racing drones!

Hello, my name is Chloe, I’m a Manchester girl who loves animals. I have acquired an Extended Diploma in Animal Management. I have started my degree in Veterinary Nursing. “Be who you want to be”. From a very young age this quote has constantly been repeated to me. Children go through stages to which they aspire to be. Aspirations of astronauts, lawyers, teachers, doctors, vets etc. My aspirations have never drifted I’ve continuously wanted to work with animals as I have always held a strong passion for them and their wellbeing. I love all aspects of Animal Nursing and Biology.

Hi! My name is Alex. I have always had a passion for animals and hoped that I would one day work in a small animal practice. After studying Animal Management at Hopwood Hall college for 2 years, I went on to start the Veterinary Nursing degree at Myerscough College where I am currently in my second year. My furry family consists of a crazy Cockerpoo called Frankie and a Labradoodle called Elsie, however whilst I am at work, I like to steal Harry the Chihuahua! I am looking forward to spending the next year of my training with the Prestwich team and can't wait to meet all of our lovely clients and their four-legged friends!

My name is Jenny and I am the VCA here! I have spent the past couple of years working in small animal practice after a career change from the television industry, and absolutely love being a part of the Prestwich team. I graduated with a degree in English from the University of Liverpool in 2013, but am now following my true passion of working with animals. My daily role here includes working on Reception, as well as helping the Vets and Nurses with patients whenever required! In September 2019, I will be starting my Veterinary Nursing diploma at Myerscough College, which I am very excited about. At home my wonderful rescue dog Connie rules the roost – she is the best thing since sliced bread! I truly believe every single animal is special, and always strive to treat each client and patient with the respect and care I would want my own to be treated with. Building bonds with clients and their furry companions alike is my goal, and I look forward to meeting everyone that comes in to the Practice!
