We are open for essential care only

In line with government guidelines, we are only offering medically essential appointments, so please contact the practice team before travelling. Our opening hours may also vary, so please monitor our webpage to keep up to date with the latest information.

We are taking steps to help keep you and our colleagues safe:

  • If you do need to visit, we ask that only one person per pet comes along, to help reduce the number of people in the waiting area at any one time.
  • Social distancing is crucial at this time. When arriving, you may be required to call ahead and wait to be invited in by a member of our team. You will be informed if this is necessary when you call us to make your appointment.
  • Once inside the practice, we ask that you please respect a two metre distance from our colleagues and other clients.
  • We are only accepting card payments to help minimise contact between you and our colleagues.
  • If you can’t visit the practice and are concerned about your pet’s health, please contact us to discuss available options.

We will continue to share regular updates here and on our Facebook page. We thank you for your patience at this time.

Hi I am Michelle. I qualified as a vet in 1992, and have enjoyed every minute of it. I enjoy all aspects of the work and though it does have its very sad moments, it’s also very rewarding and inspiring. I’m a “softie” where animals are concerned, hence my menagerie of cats, dogs, birds, tortoise, turtle and a horse- it’s a crowded house.

I’m Beth, I am the Clinical Manager at Vets4Pets St Helens and I joined the team in 2015. I qualified in 2007 and have worked in various settings from a charity hospital to a state of the art ICU. My favourite aspects of the job are emergency & critical care and medical nursing. I have undertaken additional qualifications to enhance the care I can provide to your pets and love to learn new skills and knowledge. Home can be just as busy as work with 3 young children and 2 dogs to look after! In my spare time I love to run and go to the gym.

I’m Emily and I joined the team here in June 2017 after completing my Veterinary Nursing degree at the University of the West of England. I love working here and getting hands on nursing some wonderful patients. I adore big dogs, and I am especially interested in working with owners to make life easier for our senior pets. I also particularly enjoy nursing our patients in theatre when undergoing surgical procedures. I adopted the practice cat Frank when he came to stay with me over Christmas one year and never left! He was brought into the practice in November 2017 and was incredibly poorly and thin- he’s now living life to the full with me and getting thoroughly spoilt.

I graduated from Myerscough College in July 2019 but my quest for education does not stop there, I am currently completing my bachelor’s degree and want to carry on to do my teaching degree. I’ve been here at Vets4Pets St Helens since I began my course in 2016 and plan on staying here for the foreseeable future.  I am the practice diabetic advisor at St Helens. My other key interests are in cat medicine and behaviour and diagnostic imaging like radiography.
I have two cats of my own, Fynn and Winnie, who are always causing trouble but I would not change them for the world. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, exploring the countryside and playing video games.

Hi I am Machala. I’ve been the Practice Manager here since the very beginning so I know virtually all of the clients and pets very well. It’s lovely to see the puppies and kittens growing up, the new bunnies settling in etc. We love them to call in for a chat (and of course a treat!) I took home a cat that was treated at our surgery after a kind member of the public witnessed him being hit by a car. He was seriously injured, but now rules the roost. In my spare time I like to run always challenging myself to some race or another.

Hello I am Rachael, the Client Care Manager here at St Helens Vets4Pets. I previously studied Contemporary Theatre and Performance before joining the team at St Helens in August 2015, but I can already tell this is my dream job! I am an extremely organised person and I don’t switch off even when I am at home. I enjoy a challenge and take pride in my work. It is so exciting to get the chance to meet all of the different animals. I am a people person so I enjoy talking to new and old clients - But be warned I don’t know when to stop!

Client Care Advisor

My name is Paula and I am a receptionist here at St Helens Vets4Pets. I started in October 2017 when I moved back to the area after 20 years travelling with my other half who was part of the Armed Forces. I have an extensive background in customer service, administration and I am a dog owner so I have lots of patience. The whole team here are so friendly and really care about the patients they treat and the families that worry about them. This is such a rewarding and enjoyable job that sometimes I think I would do it for free (only sometimes mind you)

Vets4Pets St Helens is committed to bringing you affordable, high quality care via a modern, well equipped practice, including a lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray and ultrasound. Plus, on site car parking too!

The friendly team can't wait to meet all of their new clients!
