I joined Medivet Shrewsbury practice straight after graduating in 2013. I’d never lived in Shrewsbury before but having moved here it has very quickly felt like home. I have been Branch Partner since July 2017 and it has flown by. I have completed my Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice and I’ve just enrolled on a further certificate in surgery. I have three dogs – a border terrier and two cocker spaniels – a cat, and have recently started keeping some marine fish. In my spare time, I enjoy weightlifting.

I have been working at Medivet Shrewsbury for three years and thoroughly enjoy the hustle and bustle of hospital life. After qualifying in 2015, I eventually returned to my hometown of Shrewsbury and started here at Medivet. I have many pets including three dogs, two cats, two rabbits and a horse named Toffee. I have also recently started keeping marine fish. I love being outside walking the dogs or riding my horse. I’m always keen to further my skills so I aim to enrol onto the Advance Veterinary Nursing course this year.

I began working in a Telford-based practice in 1999, before moving to Staffordshire to start my Senior Veterinary Nurse training. I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2003 at a veterinary hospital. I started working at Medivet Shrewsbury in 2011 as Head Nurse, and now since having my children, I work part-time as the Senior Clinical Nurse. My interests are all things surgical. I enjoy theatre work and emergency cases especially, but I love all aspects of my job. I am currently studying towards a Nurse Certificate in Anaesthesia, which I'm loving. I have a lovely dog called Flo.

Before coming to Medivet Shrewsbury I studied human nursing, working for the NHS for eight years before I moved into the veterinary industry. I’ve been at Shrewsbury for over three years. I enjoy every part of my job, particularly exotic nursing and emergency and critical care. At home I have two dogs, three cats, three rabbits, three ferrets, an African pygmy hedgehog, sugar gliders and reptiles. Outside work, I like to educate people on keeping exotic animals and I often go to reptile and exotic shows. I also enjoy playing netball, socialising and going on adventures with my dogs.

I started working at Medivet Shrewsbury as a Veterinary Care Assistant in June 2015 and I’ve recently passed my OSCEs and become a Qualified Veterinary Nurse. I previously lived in Australia for a couple of years working as a Veterinary Receptionist, which sparked my keen interest to become a Veterinary Nurse. I have two cats called Tallow and Roo and two dogs called Fox and Panda. Outside work, I enjoy playing sports, such as netball and rounders, and running with my dog Fox. I'm also a professional silversmith, hand-making silver jewellery including custom memorial pieces.

I've been working for Medivet since October 2017 and I’ve been permanent at Shrewsbury since February 2019. I previously worked in wildlife rescue and rehabilitation, so I have a keen interest in wildlife and exotics and feel privileged to be able to practice the skills and knowledge that I’ve acquired. Although I don't have any animals of my own, my landlady is a 'home-from-home' dog boarder, so there are at least four or five dogs at home each night to keep me busy. I’m due to start my Veterinary Nursing Diploma at Bottle Green this September and I can’t wait to get going.

I have worked at the hospital for six years after moving here from Merseyside, where I worked in retail management. Moving to the countryside and changing career has been the best decision for me and my family, including my cat Peggy and my terrier Fizz, who loves to come walking with me to explore the area.

Lovely vets - our rescue cat has turned out to have a few health issues and the vets have been really lovely, helpful and supportive. We've called for some advice and they have been really calm and understanding, explain things really well and cautious about putting the animal through stressful procedures that may not be needed. We had to rush our cat in on a Sunday morning and were put through to the Shrewsbury branch straight away, they saw us within 30 minutes and had all of our cats previous records to hand - I was really impressed. Even though we weren't allowed in with him due to COVID the vet talked to us over the phone and I felt really reassured he was in good hands.

Our dog was cared for at Medivet (previously Pearl) for most of her life (nearly 17 years) and was a regular visitor for one reason or another. We would like to say a huge thanks to Simon, the nurses and receptionists who always treated Daisy (and us!) with such great compassion. Her passing last week was dealt with sensitively despite the coronavirus restrictions and for that we will always be grateful. Our heartfelt thanks to you all.

Very professional. Whole team most helpful. Simon, who performed surgery on our beloved dog has, every step of the way, from first presentation to the continued aftercare has taken an inclusive, professional and compassionate approach. First class! Emma has provided hydrotherapy and, again, very warm and informative. Can’t fault care that has been holistic; they have assumed all responsibility since Shawbirch practice is closed owing to covid 19. A shout out to Andrea, who has fielded several phone calls as Titus needs complex care.

I just wanted to say thank you so much to everyone at this wonderful vets. We have been visiting rather regularly recently with our beloved cat Sandie, who was poorly and receiving palliative care. Everyone is so friendly and helpful whilst being efficient. Particular thanks go to Simon. He has helped us through this awful stage of our and Sandies life with kindness, caring, compassion and honesty. He really treated her as a special and individual cat and we are so glad he was there at the end and helped us through this. Life will never be the same and one day I may be able to stop crying, meanwhile, thank you, you are all truly stars.

We've used this vet for the last ten years, two months ago we had to put our dog down. The staff are always friendly, comforting and show genuine love for your pets like you would yourself. Even though at the end we had to follow social distancing procedures they still managed to make the situation seem normal. Couldn't have asked for a better send off, would recommend this practice to everyone.

I called at 8.30pm and at was in the surgery before 9.15pm. The service was excellent and the vet was very knowledgeable. I asked loads of questions which were met with kindness and patience. The surgery itself was very clean. As we are currently in the Pandemic we waited in the car until we were called inside. I had no issues

We were very happy with the service from MediVet. Firstly, we are so relieved that Winnie's problem was diagnosed and treated efficiently. We had to use both the Newcastle under Lyme and Shrewsbury clinics - however, both sites liaised with each other very well which helped with our and Winnie's stress levels! Thank you
