At Vets for Pets, we have invested considerably in our team and kit to make a number of advanced services available to our clients. We also accept referrals from other practices.
Meet the team
I am from Rochdale and grew up in Milnrow, just a few miles from the practice so I know and love the area. I have worked exclusively in practices caring for family pets since I qualified from The University of Liverpool in 2005. I have a keen interest in all aspects of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery, especially cardiology, ultrasonography, dermatology, endocrinology (caring for patients with Diabetes, hyperthyroidism etc) and feline medicine. I also have an interest in small mammal medicine, especially rabbits and guinea pigs. I have a cat called Edith who came to me as a stray and a rescue dog called Joy who some of you might have met at the practice! I enjoy spending time with my two daughters, my partner Kris and his children and I enjoy walking, cycling, reading, camping and baking. Being part of the Vets4Pets family means we can offer value for money without cutting corners but being a small, local team means our clients see a familiar face providing their personal, friendly service. I love being a Vet and I really enjoy getting to know my patients and their families and I look forward to helping your pet stay healthy and happy.
My name is Nigel. I have over 37 years experience as a veterinary surgeon.
I spent much of my career working with Blue Cross in Hong Kong and then moving to London.
I enjoy travelling and like to incorporate this with my love of wild life.
I enjoy spending my time at home in the garden with my dog Twn. Twn has a very cheeky character and can sometimes been seen at work with me.
I love both internal medicine and surgery but my main interest is ophthalmology. I’m currently in my third and final year of a BSAVA postgraduate ophthalmology certificate. In my spare time I love to travel and spend time with my friends and boyfriend. I have a 1 year old cat named Lando, who was brought to our practice as a stray when he was only 6 weeks old. Both me and my boyfriend fell in love with him straight away.
I come from sunny Portugal, more precisely a city called Coimbra. I studied in a university in the north of Portugal called UTAD. I am a recent graduate and have a big interest in all things pathology related specifically into cytology. I also enjoy getting my hands into soft tissue surgery, ultrasound and would like to learn more about small mammals and endoscopy. When I'm out of work I take pleasure in going to concerts, drawing or painting and also in exploring nature. I have a cute 14 year old dog named Laika and a cat with a temper named Hayley. I hope that I can grow and become a great professional within the Vets4pets team in order to help more animals and their owners.
Hi, I'm Ruth. I'm a registered qualified veterinary nurse. I qualified and graduated from Plymouth university (Bicton College) in 2005. I have worked in both small and large animal practices. I love all aspects of nursing but my special interest is in medical nursing and nurse clinics.
In my spare time I love spending time with my husband Danny and my 2 boys. We have a rescue dog called Frankie that is 1 year old.
When Rochdale Vets4Pets opened in 2015 I started as a Veterinary Care Assistant/ Client Care Assistant. In 2016 I was given an amazing opportunity by the owners to study and become a Veterinary Nurse and I officially qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2019. During the past three years I have honed my craft by working for a year in a Veterinary Hospital and completing various training in different areas of nursing to better service your pets and you.
Before I started working here at Rochdale Vets4Pets I had actually never owned a pet, since then I have had two rabbits, two dogs and a cat. I love animals of all shapes and sizes and want to help you help them, so pop in or give us a ring and we’ll be here to help.
I started as a CCA for Vets4Pets Rochdale March 2021. Working in the animal industry has always been a passion of mine since a young age.
My Favourite animals are Rabbits; although I do love all animals. I have 1 Rabbit called Benji who is 9 years old.
I love meeting all your pets & being part of the family here at Vets4Pets Rochdale.

My name is Kelly. I am the head receptionist here at Rochdale Vets4Pets. I am here for any questions you may have. The best part of my job is getting cuddles from all the animals that come into practice. Make sure you bring your furry pets for cuddles when you are next in the practice.
