I have been a practice partner at Shrewsbury Vets4Pets since 2007. I love working at the surgery and getting to know all our patients, assisted by our friendly and 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 farm with my wife and 3 boys. We currently have 4 cats, 2 dogs, lots of 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!

I started at Vet4Pets 10 years ago, working as an Animal Nursing Assistant and Receptionist, before starting my training to become a Registered Veterinary Nurse. Since qualifying I have also become practice partner alongside Jonathan. On any give day you could see me on reception, in clinics, in theatre or in the office - I enjoy all my varied roles responsibilities!

I work here because I love animals.... I have 2 dogs, one cat and am super excited about getting a hamster once my children are a little older and long term I would love to have some chickens and goats.

I am really grateful for the wonderful people I work with and for the lovely clients who chose to come to see us here. They make coming to work a pleasure.

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

I have worked for vets4pets for 3 years, and prior to that I was a VCA at a mixed animal practice in mid Wales. I am due to sit my final practical exams in March, after which I will hopefully become an RVN.

I have two very naughty cats at home called Dodger and Oliver and a horse which keeps me busy. I have a real interest in anything feline, and once qualified I would love to specialise in feline nursing

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'm currently 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.

I qualified in August 2020 as an RVN and I absolutely love my job. I love all aspects of the job and taking care of pets is a passion of mine. My favourite part of nursing is emergency and critical care. I have a Lurcher called Barney and two cats called Oscar and Bree who love to cause mischief at home. In my spare time I like to go for walks and spend time with family and friends.

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.

I have worked at Vets4Pets for several years and enjoy meeting and talking to both existing and new clients alike and of course seeing their gorgeous pets

I work with a fantastic team of dedicated, professional and friendly people who are supportive and caring to both colleagues and clients alike.
At home, I have a dog called Pebble, she is a crazy Cavachon.  We picked her up as an extremely cute 8 week old puppy back in 2011.  She is a real character who is happiest at home getting lots of cuddles as she has some anxiety issues

Being welcomed in to the team here at Vets4Pets has been a breath of fresh air, getting to work closely with everyone is great.
The team are so caring and put their all into each and every animal they meet.
My favourites have to be the puppies we see, snuggling them at reception is definatly a perk of this job. 
My particular love is for staffies. My husband and i have our 7 year old furbaby at home-Bolt, he literally melts my heart every day-except for when he eats our cushions, which unfortunately has become a regular occurrence over the years!
When I’m not at work i enjoy spending time with my friends and family, taking bolt on exciting adventures-especially in the rain, we love the puddles, they’re great fun. And finally being at home watching my childhood favourite Disney films is when I’m at my happiest.

Please note that there are some changes to our normal consulting arrangements, in view of the coronavirus outbreak:


On arrival, please phone us from your car to check in and remain in your car.  One of our clinical colleagues will then come to your car to collect your pet and take your pet inside for their appointment. Please wear a mask for handover of your pet. The Vet or Nurse may chat to you in the car park or on the phone while you wait in your car, depending on the situation and weather.

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.

To minimise footfall at reception - where possible please pay over the phone by card. We would also appreciate minimal use of cash where 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.

If and when your pet becomes unwell, you’ll want to be confident you have a local vet you can rely on. Our vets practice in Shrewsbury is run by a friendly and experienced team, all of whom are animal lovers and many of them pet owners themselves.

From routine check-ups and annual vaccinations, to treatment for injuries and infections, you’ll find our vets in Shrewsbury can help with all kinds of pet health problems. Modern and well-equipped, Shrewsbury veterinary practice boasts a lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray and ultrasound, and offers on-site parking for your convenience.
