I’ve been at the practice for three years and am originally from the Midlands. I will be qualifying as a vet nurse in 2020 and am very keen to see where my interests take me next. Outside of work, I love to travel. I also have a cat called Molly and a giant African land snail called Gary.

Prior to working at Medivet I worked with large animals. I worked at the Wool practice from 2011 and have been at Dorchester since 2020. I qualified as a vet nurse in 2014. I grew up and lived in in Purbeck before moving to the UK, and currently work part-time as I have twin boy toddlers. In my spare time I enjoy riding my horse.

Nothing is too much trouble. The staff are friendly & love each animal as if they were their own. When you have to leave your pet at the vets it’s hard but knowing you’ve left them in great hands eases your worries.

Great help at 0500hrs on Sunday morning, vet at 0915hrs, very informative and reassuring. Use Med Vet, in WEYMOUTH, but went to Medi Vet at Dorchester in this case. Would highly recommend Medi Vet in this area.

Southfield Vet Centre showed compassion and looked after a pigeon of mine when it was taken to them after going missing for 5 months. Unfortunately it was too ill to save. There was no charge for their care. Thank you!
