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.

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!)

I qualified from RVC London in 1990. I have worked in small animal practices in the South of England until moving to Wales 12 years ago. More recently I have joined Vets4Pets and I am delighted to be part of such as great dedicated and supportive team – everyone equally passionate about providing the best possible care for pets.

Like most vets I have had a good variety of fury and feathered members of the family but my favourite is my ex-feral cat Sooty who has grown to love his cuddles. Outside of work I enjoy gardening, playing violin and being an administrator for Montgomery Youth Music Charity.

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 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!

Head Veterinary Nurse


Read Kristina Jones  bio

I have been working in the veterinary industry since 2011 and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2013. I have worked in two other small animal practices including a busy veterinary hospital where I gained lots of valuable experience.

I joined the team at Vets4Pets Shrewsbury in May 2017, and was quickly promoted to Head Veterinary Nurse. Last year I completed an additional qualification – a certificate in Emergency and Critical Care, which has enabled me to extend my skills and knowledge and help pass on my knowledge to the student veterinary nurses.

I am a clinical coach to two of the students in practice which involves mentoring them through their nurses training. I love teaching the students new skills and seeing them progress. My favorite part of my job is theatre work and anaesthesia.

Outside of work I have a rescue labrador who I love taking out for long walks in the countryside. I love my job here at Vets4Pets and enjoy looking forward to coming to work to see what the day will bring

I qualified as a Registered Veterinary nurse in 2014, after joining the practice as a receptionist, and then completing my Veterinary Care Assistants certificate in 2009 and 2010. I enjoy the variety that the role involves but especially like x-rays and assisting with ultrasound scans. I enjoy working as part of such a friendly, caring team.

I have two young daughters who keep myself and my husband busy when we are not at work. We enjoy going for walks and spending time at the beach when we can. I also have two cats Misty and Garfield, who are now getting into their senior years. Misty loves nothing better than sneaking onto my eldest daughter's bed for a cuddle.

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.

My favourite animal would have to be a cat because I love how adventurous and mischievous they are. I have a rescue cat called Humphrey who loves exploring during the day and curling up in front of the TV in the evening. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family, going for walks and volunteering at the Shropshire Cat Rescue. I have been volunteer there for over 3 years.

I started my training in September 2018 at Reaseheath College and am enjoying every part of it. My favourite topic at the moment at college is Infection Control

I have a dual role at Vets4Pets, working as a client care advisor and I'm training as a veterinary nurse. I really enjoy laboratory work but get genuine enjoyment out of every aspect of working closely with the pets we see here at the surgery.

I have 4 incredible pets; a 9 year old cavapoo who I couldn't be without, a crazy 5 year old cocker spaniel, a dachshund cross puppy with a huge personality, and finally, a cheeky kitten.

In my spare time, I can either be found nestled in a good book or exploring the local countryside with my posse of pooches.

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.

Dogs are definately my favourite animal, for their unconditional love. They are always happy to see you.
At home, I have two dogs - Biscuit, a Labrador/Retriever and Pebble, a Cavachon. Also a selection of tropical and coldwater fish.
The best part of working for Vest4Pets is support of, and working with a great team. Being able to meet so many gorgeous pets and their caring owners.

Please note that there are some changes to our normal consulting arrangements, in view of the coronavirus outbreak:
On arrival, please report to reception.  You will be asked to take a seat in the waiting area. If there is no available seat then you may be asked to wait in the store or outside.
The vet will come to the reception desk, and will discuss your pet’s condition with you whilst you remain seated at a distance in the waiting area. 
The vet will then take your pet through to the consulting room for examination, and return to discuss treatment etc.  Please remain seated in the waiting area whilst your pet is examined.
If you are self-isolating and would prefer to stay in your car for the duration of the visit, please phone us when you arrive in the car park, and we will send a vet out to you.
These measures will ensure that we reduce direct contact between people, and are aimed at keeping both you and our colleagues safe.  We hope you will appreciate the need for these arrangements.

Repeat medications: If you would prefer not to come in to the surgery to collect repeat medications then we can post them. Alternatively you can call or email to pre order medication, when you arrive you can call us and we will bring it out to your car.

Please keep your distance at reception. We would also appreciate it if you can pay by card rather than cash if possible.

If you have any other questions or concerns then please feel free to call us or email. Our aim is to keep everyone safe so that we are still able to open. Thank you for your understanding.
