Hi, my name is Maria! I've graduated from Lublin University of Life Sciences in 2013. 

Since then I've been working as a veterinary surgeon in several veterinary practices, mostly with small animals. My specific professional interests include internal medicine of dogs and cats and surgery. 

I'm delighted to become a part of Vets4Pets team and I really enjoy living in beautiful Lancashire. After work I like to spend time with my family and friends. I like socialising with my friends, watching horror films, travelling and cooking!

Hi, my name is Robyn! I grew up in Liverpool and achieved my qualification as a veterinary nurse in 2012. Since then I have worked with small animals and exotic pets. Being a veterinary nurse is a very rewarding career, I particularly enjoy nurse clinics. This gives me the opportunity of getting to know patients and clients very well. I have two cheeky guinea pigs called Buddy and Happy. They are both indoor pigs and love their home comforts. I have been given the name “Crazy Guinea Pig Lady” which I love.

Hello I’m Christine and I have been in small animal practice for over 20 years. I am proud to work alongside such a dedicated team who have helped to develop Vets4Pets Southport after opening in 2017.

I have also achieved the International Society of Feline Medicine Diploma in Feline Nursing which has helped me understand our feline friends in more depth.

Unfortunately in May 2020, we lost our 13 and a half year old rescue Rottweiler, Lola. My love of rottweilers will remain along with so many happy memories. We also have a rescue naughty tortie called Chunks, who can be very demanding, and loud but we love her to bits with her quirkiness.

I enjoy meeting new people and their pets, listening to their funny stories and helping them to manage their pets health.

My interests include dentistry, surgery and anything related to creepy crawlies - mites, lice and ticks!
