Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

Read Kirsty Bridger bio

I have been the Head Veterinary Surgeon and Practice Partner at Vets4Pets Rayleigh for 4 years. In that time the practice has grown and changed significantly, in 2015 we became the first 24/7 practice (open all hours with no extra costs) in the UK, I believe passionately about improving animal welfare and making veterinary care accessible and affordable. In early 2017 my husband and I welcomed our son into our family, being a mum and practice partner keeps me very busy but any spare time I have is usually spent walking our dog Elvis. I love my job and work with an incredible team.

Hello, I’m Lauren (and the feline is my gorgeous girl, Lily). I qualified from Bristol University in 2011 and moved to Essex 5 years ago. Since graduating I have completed some extra qualifications - I am an ‘official veterinarian’ which means I can do pet passports for pets wishing to travel, I have also recently finished a certificate in small animal surgery which included more complex procedures than those usually done in first opinion practice.

I started working for Rayleigh Vets4Pets this January and am enjoying it very much, both the team and the clients have all been very welcoming so thank you!
In my spare time I enjoy painting, astronomy (when there’s a clear night) and I am currently trying to improve my photography skills.

I have been a member of the night team at Vet4Pets Rayleigh since October 2015. Prior to this I worked in a small animal practice in Harlow for over four years after graduating from the Royal Veterinary College. My interests are in emergency medicine and surgery and rabbits.

At home I have two young children and two cats Summer and Bernie. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the cinema, theatre and going on nature walks.

Hi, I’m Cris and I’ve been at Rayleigh for about 6 months so far as an Intern Veterinary Surgeon. I have previously studied Veterinary Science at a university in Romania and have also worked in Denmark dealing with farmyard animals.

The thing that I enjoy most about working at Rayleigh is the variety of surgical cases that we see and also working alongside a great team.

In my spare time I enjoy wall climbing and watching movies.

Hi my names Kieran, and I’m a fairly new face at Vets4Pets Rayleigh. I’m a Veterinary Care Assistant, which means I’m mainly found in kennels helping to look after the many animals we welcome into our care.

David Attenborough is one of my many idols, who influenced my decision to pursue a career to work, learn, and care for animals, as this has always been a passion of mine. There is nothing more rewarding than working alongside the range of animals and amazing team here at Vets4Pets, and I am loving every minute of it.
