A Team Of Animal Lovers 

Our profession is our passion, so you can be sure that your pet is in good hands with our highly-qualified vets and veterinary nurses. Together we cover a wide range of interests, which allows us to administer rapid, comprehensive treatment which is as stress-free as possible for the animal. We are lucky that our receptionist has a vast experience in the veterinary world and our students are some of the most dedicated and gifted that we have known.

Director and Veterinary Surgeon
BSc, BVMS, MRCVS, VN

Fiona was a qualified Veterinary Nurse for 10 years before becoming a Vet.

"It was my life time ambition to be a vet and I am very lucky to have achieved it. I love my job. Every day is a challenge, and you never stop learning. Animals always throw up new challenges (and other things!)

I am lucky to have a great team around me. They are all dedicated to the job and go above and beyond to give the best to our clients and their animals."

Sheila Cook
Sheila Cook
Head Receptionist

Sheila is a legend, after working in veterinary practice for more years that we are allowed to say. She was hoping for a quieter life moving from veterinary nursing to reception but that isn't it to be. Her vast knowledge and experience is called upon for anything from hand rearing kittens to completing insurance claims. Sheila has many pets, one of which is a huge Rottweiler - a true gentle giant. She gives an enormous amount of her own time to hand rearing and rehabilitating kittens, puppies, hedgehogs and birds and still finds time for car boot sales!
