Read Judith Archbold bio

I was born and bred in Southampton. I have a degree in Zoology from Cardiff University and graduated as a vet from Cambridge University in 1994. I have since gained further qualifications in emergency medicine and surgery (GPcertEM+S) and soft tissue / orthopaedic surgery (certAVPgSAS). I am an RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Surgery. I have always worked full-time in small animal practice, mostly in Hampshire and Dorset, with some “time out” working in New Zealand …. I emigrated taking my dogs and cat with me …. then we all came back as I missed the lovely weather here! I have a menagerie of 2 mad Labradors (Scout and Tegwen), an 18 year old diabetic 3-legged cat (Hobie), 4 tortoises (aged between 8 and 75 years) and some rescued ex-battery hens running around the garden. In my spare time I enjoy dog walking and I play the flugelhorn in The New Forest Brass Training Band. As a family we always had boats growing up ….. the beach is still my favourite place ……. and I go sea fishing with friends, but only in warm weather nowadays! I enjoy all aspects of running the practice, but I’m happiest in theatre as have a bias towards surgery. I have a great team working with me to maintain a high standard of veterinary care for our patients.

I have had a passion for animals since I was very young; and I’ve been working with them since 1993 and qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2000.

I have a particular interest in reptiles and own several species of them. At home I keep snakes, lizards, tarantulas and two Staffordshire Bull Terriers.

I also have a keen interest in dog psychology and behaviour. I enjoy training my own dogs and I am currently undertaking Search and Rescue training with my dog Vinnie.

I’m currently studying to become a registered veterinary nurse. I have wanted to be a nurse for as long as I can remember so working within a great team to help pets on a daily basis is a really satisfying job.

I don’t have any pets at the moment but due to living in the New Forest I do get occasional visits from donkeys; which is amazing. I have a keen interest in wildlife and conservation. On the weekends I spend time studying, reading, gardening or walking in the forest.

I have had a passion for animals since I was young. Starting with my first voluntary job at 15 years old: this set me off on my quest to become a registered veterinary nurse, which I am currently studying for, and enjoy very much. I previously went to Sparsholt College and gained a National Diploma in Animal Management.  I have a range of pets including  Shaya - a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Trixie - a German Shepherd Dog, Bagheera and Shelby - cats, and Coco and Cookie - Guinea pigs. I enjoy spending time with family and friend, swimming and training my GSD.

I work part-time as a client care advisor. Prior to working for Vets4Pets I worked in the Health Care Sector for over 20 years.

I am the proud owner of two dogs: a Leonberger called Ruby and a Chihuahua called Leila. In my spare time I work as a volunteer for Therapy Dogs Nationwide. Our Leonberger Ruby enjoys pulling carts and draught work, and takes part in lots of demonstrations throughout the summer months.

I love being part of such an amazing team. No two days are the same which makes it interesting. The best part of my job is meeting new people and their lovely pets.

I have worked as a client care advisor for the last two years, starting at New Milton and recently transferring here to Totton. Previously I worked in the dental industry but have always loved animals and when the opportunity came up to work in a veterinary surgery I very gladly took it!

I have my own lovely cat called Tilly, who adopted me when she came in as a stray and has made herself at home quite nicely.

I enjoy working in such a friendly team and seeing what each day brings as no day can ever be fully planned.
