Jose Monreal

Jose Monreal

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Jose Monreal bio

This is Jose, along with Luis he has been a Joint Venture Partner here in Vets4pets Rustington since 2010. Throughout the years there has been challenging times but thanks to their great colleagues, and the loyalty of you amazing clients the practice has developed into a place Jose loves to work. Jose is a “Jack of all trades” type of Veterinary Surgeon, but his main areas of interest lay in skin and heart conditions. As a senior Vet (not just in age 😉), he also enjoys supporting his new and younger colleagues. Outside of work you can find Jose on the couch watching movies, reading novels, eating good food and drinking wine surrounded by his 2 cats and 2 dogs. It’s not all about the couch potato life though as he loves to keep fit through outdoor exercise when the time allows

Hello, I am Marta. I qualified in Madrid back in 2002. After working for more than 10 years with small animals around the Madrid area, I decided that England will give me a better opportunity to develop my professional skills and to do what I like most, which is looking after our great small animals companions (Failing that, I also like Gardening and cooking). So here I am...
