Born in Zimbabwe, I qualified there in 1992 and moved with my wife to the UK in 1998. I have been working in small animal practice since and enjoy spoiling the animals at consult time, when they will let me. At home I have a grumpy old cat, a pansy of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and two kids who have grown up too quickly!

I joined the Thurrock team as a veterinary surgeon in July, 2020. So far I’ve been enjoying meeting new people, sharing stories, having a good laugh and seeing our patients get better after every visit. My personal goal is to secure welfare of our dear pets, and my professional goal is to become a certified veterinary cardiologist.

Read Claudia Saunders bio

I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in July 2016 and continued on to complete my BSc in Veterinary Nursing at the Royal Veterinary College in July 2017. Since qualifying I have worked as a locum nurse in many different veterinary practices across Essex and Hertfordshire to allow me flexibility whilst finishing my degree. I started at Thurrock Vets4Pets in October 2017 as a locum member of staff and have since joined the team permanently in November 2018. I love meeting new patients every day and enjoy building relationships with those who come in regularly, getting to know what they like and dislike. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my little boy and family, often going on walks to the local country park! At home I have rabbits and guinea pigs and am always trying out new ways to keep them entertained and encourage their natural behaviors.

I am a vet by profession and have decided to pursue my career as a practice manager. I qualified as a vet in the year 2000 and since then worked as a vet for short duration in a small animal clinic and for 5 years in an equine hospital. I've completed my graduate certificate in business management and professional key skills in the year 2010 and I'm a certificate holder of European School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies. I'm excited to be a part of the team at Vets4Pets Thurrock and looking forward to coming back to work after taking a long break to raise the kids. My favourite pet is a cat and outside work I'm interested in cooking, movies, music and spending time with my husband and kids.

I joined Vets4Pets as a part time receptionist in March 2015. I have never worked within in the veterinary industry before but I have a huge passion for animals and to work with animals of all varieties is an honour and a privilege. I love all animals but I have a special affection for Siamese and Oriental Cats. I got married in July 2018 and when I am not at work, I am mum to two wonderful teenage girls, who keep me very busy. We rescued an older cat from this Practice who came in for a dental and had no permanent home, so I took her home in time for Christmas which made my girls very happy. We called her Phoenix and they are very good with her, giving her her flea and worm treatment on a regular basis. I think it’s very valuable for children to learn the importance of animal welfare, and the responsibility of how to keep an animal happy and healthy.

I joined Vets4pets as a full time receptionist in April 2019. The animal industry is a big interest of mine and always has been since I was young. It’s truly fascinating seeing so many different animals on a day-to-day basis that each have their own personalities, just like humans. I’m currently doing an Animal Care Level 2 and Animal Behaviour Level 3 online course and aspire to learn and progress into becoming a veterinary nurse. I have a gorgeous cat named Samson and he’s the funniest cat you’ll ever meet! He’s a cheeky monkey, but what’s the point in having a pet if they’re not a little cheeky?

I joined Vets4Pets Thurrock in February 2020 as a full time receptionist. Animals have been a big passion of mine since I was very young, and I have always dreamed of working within the animal industry. I have recently completed the level 3 Diploma in Animal Management at Writtle University College, and I am now working towards a level 3 diploma in Dog grooming. I love learning new things and meeting customers with they’re fur babies. Outside of work and college, my hobbies include photography, movies, makeup and spending time with family. My favourite pet would be dogs, I have two chihuahuas myself and although being tiny, they’re personalities are huge! They truly are a mans best friend.

I’ve recently joined the Thurrock practice on reception.  I have worked within the veterinary world for the past six years and I have loved meeting all the pets and their owners. 

I have always loved animals and three little Bichon Frise dogs were a massive part of my life. After losing these three dogs to old age (one of my boys was almost 18 years old) I vowed never to have another dog. 

I spent time pet sitting family and friends dogs and during lockdown of 2020, I fostered an abandoned puppy who was found dumped in a box with his litter mates. I saw him go from skinny and shy to this bounding full of life, healthy and happy puppy... I failed at fostering him and he became officially adopted three months later!!!

Vets4Pets Thurrock 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!
