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.

Emily Cross

Practice Owner and Veterinary Surgeon

Read Emily Cross bio

I graduated from Edinburgh in 2004 having also read zoology at UCL and have been working as a small animal veterinary surgeon ever since. Work initially took me to South Wales and then Kent before covering the length and breadth of England as a locum for the last 3 ½ years. I am thrilled to have the opportunity now to branch out on my own and am looking forward to meeting the animals, and their families, of Watford. I am currently owned by a young Irish terrier called Hattie who keeps me on my toes and believes she is the boss of all that she surveys. When I am not working or busy with Hattie entertainment, I enjoy reading, going to the theatre and travelling, although I suspect the travels will have to be kept within the UK for the foreseeable future.

Hello, I'm Punit. I graduated from Bristol University in July after studying Animal Science at Nottingham. After 8 years at university, I am loving life as a vet so far!


My current veterinary interests lie in small animal surgery and neurology; and I love working with animals of all different shapes, sizes and colours!


Outside of the veterinary practice, I like to keep myself fit and healthy by going to the gym and playing football. I also love superheroes and enjoy reading comic books and watching films. Finally, I am interested in photography and you will often catch me taking photos of your furry friends.

Hello, I’m Charlotte. I’ve always had a love of animals and knew I wanted to work with them from a young age. I graduated from Middlesex University in 2012 as a qualified Veterinary Nurse and I have since worked in a number of large practices. I joined Vets4Pets in March 2017 as their Head Nurse. You will mainly see me for nurse consults, however I also care for your pets when they have to stay with us. At home I have two Guinea Pigs, Abra and Omi, as well as my hand-reared kitten Henry (at 10 years old I’m not sure I can still call him that!). I look forward to meeting you and your pets!

Hi, my name is Adrienne and I joined the team at Vets4Pets in September 2018. I qualified as a veterinary nurse in October 2017 and over the years have gained experience in many different aspects of nursing including anaesthesia, emergency and critical care and diagnostic imaging. Although I love all species I have recently taken a keen interest in feline specific medicine and am looking forward to developing my knowledge in this area - especially as I meet so many of your lovely cats when I am consulting!

At home we have a very cute cat called Cake and two mischievous terrier-cross dogs, Albie and Casper. When I'm not at the practice, I can usually be found snuggling up with them watching a film.

Hi I’m Izzy, I have always had a keen interest in animals and I have owned many pets over the years.

I studied animal care and management at college and then went on to do a degree in Zoology. I hope one day to become a veterinary nurse. I have always worked with animals from a pet shop to a rescue centre.

I love my job and the animals and people I meet. My main interests are small animals and exotics.

Read Hattie (aka the ginger nut) bio

My human is Emily, the vet, and I come to work with her every day. She claims it’s so I’m not left on my own, I say it’s so I can keep an eye on proceedings and make sure everything is ship-shape. I work on the principle that everyone loves me (who wouldn’t) and greet everyone with a bounce. I am the official treat tester to ensure only the best is stocked in the consult rooms and at reception. When I’m not checking that everyone is doing their jobs properly I can be found with my faithful chewy bone or practising my most elegant photo poses – on my back, legs in the air is my current favourite.

Hello! I'm Lauren, I've currently been working in the Veterinary industry for over three years. During this time I've learnt a lot, most importantly to make a team like ours happy all you seem to need is Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and a large collection of hidden pens!

If I'm not at work I normally try to keep my day relaxed, but this is pretty difficult with a 3 year old Boxer at home called Cooper who isn't happy unless he's up to no good.

People always ask why I enjoy my job so much, and the team I work with help but it's definitely got to be what seems like an endless supply of puppies and kittens. Puppy cuddles always make my day a lot brighter. Well that's me, look forward to meeting you.

Hello, I'm Fran. I have been working in the Veterinary Industry for a little over 4 years now. 

I have been to college to study a VCA course and I am currently working at Vets4Pets as a VCA, and I am hoping to progress as a Veterinary Nurse in the future. I have wanted to work with animals from a young age, so being given the chance to fulfil my aspirations is amazing. 

Outside of work, I own 2 Cats and 1 Dog: Tipsy - The 3 Legged Tortoiseshell Sophie - The grumpy ginger Layla - The crazy Rottweiler X There is never a dull moment in my house thanks to my furry friends - but I wouldn't have it any other way!

Vets4Pets Watford Century 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!
