My name is Jonathan and I am one of owners of Shrewsbury Vets4Pets. I have been working here since 2007. I love working at Vets4Pets and getting to know all our patients as well as working with such a friendly, caring team of colleagues. I enjoy the variety of being a vet but I have a special interest in orthopaedics and cardiology. Outside of work I am kept busy running our small holding with my wife and children. We currently have 5 cats and 2 dogs as well as sheep, cows, pigs and chickens.

Like most of the team, outside of work I enjoy exploring the countryside with my two terriers, Peggy and Alfie. I spend the rest of my time with my horses - Penry and Aldo. I have also recently taken on a stray kitten, affectionately known as Bugwump! My favourite part of being a vet is operating, although my satisfaction definitely comes from the gratitude and smiley faces when we are able to fix your pet! To me, working for Vets4Pets means being part of a team who support each other and the clients, whilst always doing the best for our patients.

My favorite animal is hard to choose but probably cats. I seem to be building up a collection of different colors... So far I have a tabby, a big black cat, a small black cat, a ginger boy, and a very pretty ginger and white girl. You can never have too many cats, and I don't have a black & white one yet...

As well as my cats, I also have 2 collies - Timmy and Kiera. Plus we keep sheep, cows, pigs, chickens and turkeys on our small holding.

I love working for vets4Pets because it means I get to know some of the pets, and their owners, who we see regularly. It's always nice to see the dogs who have been coming here since puppies, pulling their owners across the car park as they're so keen to come and visit us! (perhaps the jar of biscuits at reception has something to do with that!)

My favorite animal is really hard to choose, but I think my absolute favorite has to be dogs. When I was 13 I had a real bond with my friend's Jack Russel, Ivy, and it was a combination of her and my love of all the animals at the riding stables where I spent my weekends and holidays, that made me want to be a vet. I also love cows, sheep, horses, and cats!

At home, I have a cat, GT (short for Ginger Tom), who came into work as an injured stray 6 years ago. I had to amputate his leg but he seems to have forgiven me for that and has been known to catch a rodent or two! He has a purr you can hear in the next room.

I also have a four-year-old whippet, Rupert, who was bred by a nurse I used to work with. He's a joy, and the perfect dog for me! 

The best thing about working for Vets4Pets is the three C's. Lovely Colleagues, Clients, and high standard of Care!

When I'm not at work I enjoy Countryside walks, horse riding and meeting my Veterinary Nursing friends for dog walks.

At home I have a rescue Labrador called Archie and a cat called Saffie. Archie loves having a fuss and meeting up regularly with his pals on walks, whereas Saffie prefers to do her own thing (typical cat).

I enjoy working at Vets4Pets because of the lovely, friendly team and a great work life balance. The team are always happy to help each other and
My favorite part of my job is anesthesia and theater practice. Having worked in a referral practice for nearly four years; I have experienced many interesting anesthetics such as spinal surgery, MRI scans, laparoscopic spays etc. I really enjoy anesthesia and looking after your pets whilst there are here with us, and making sure they have the best possible recovery.
In October 2018 I completed a certificate in Emergency and Critical Care and I am look forward to using my new skills and knowledge in every day practice.

In my spare time, I love to read, especially crime novels as I love a good twist in a story!

I have also started to teach myself to cook which I have found I really enjoy. I have 4 Poodles, one standard poodle Ted, and 3 Miniature poodles Vinnie, Aero and Cookie! They all have their own unique personalities, but one thing they all have in common is that they all love to go swimming!

Before I started working for vet4pets I was a client for many years and I was always so impressed by how caring and friendly the team was! Now as an employee of Vets4Pets I love the fact that the team are so close and friendly, also the team always all work together to achieve the best outcome for their patients

My favourite animals are cats. I love how they are independent, mischievous but very loving.

I have three cats: Willow who is a typical naughty torti, Salem who is a laid back ball of fluff and Oliver who is a very mischievous kitten I adopted from my old practice. I also have a very opinionated standard-bred horse called Grace.

In my spare time I love relaxing and spending time with my horse and getting her out into the fields for a spin.

The best thing about working for vets4pets is the amazing team. Everyone is incredibly supportive and caring and everyone has a genuine love for the animals we take care of. I am very excited to start my RVN training in Sep with such an amazing team.

In my spare time, I enjoy walking my dog and discovering new places that we can get lost in. My kids keep me busy with their variety of clubs and interests. I look forward to warm, sunny holidays with my family and catching up with friends when I'm not running around after the kids!

My dog Sheamus is my big hunk of love! He's a Fox Red Labrador who has three loves in life... Food, Walks & Sleep. His best friend is my 8-year-old daughter and their favorite game is Hide & Seek where he always finds her! 

I enjoy working at Vets4Pets because I get to meet people and their lovely animals and chat about the silly things they do.
My absolute favorite part of being a receptionist has to be meeting and cuddling as many puppies as I can grab hold of.
