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.

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 Groomzone for two years and I'm very grateful to be able to work with so many fantastic animals and people every day. I own a chocolate labrador called Enzo, two guinea pigs, Toffee and Muffin, and will soon add a kitten to the collection called Custard. I have lived in Shrewsbury all my life.

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. Outside work, I love to travel and experience different cultures.

I’ve worked at Medivet Shrewsbury for nearly four years now. I've always had a crazy obsession for animals, which led me to college to study horses. I like to be in the great outdoors, camping, trips to the seaside, horse riding and watching copious amounts of Game of Thrones. I am owned by two cats, Steve and Bobbi, who enjoy keeping me on my toes.

Huge Thank-you to the whole team. Mono our puppy has had an operation today and from start to finish they made it all run smoothly. From talking to someone on the phone to the surgery, the communication whilst he was away from home and support offered when picking him up… greatly appreciated and so nice to deal with such kind, caring and knowledgable professionals. Many thanks to you all 🐾

Our pet seen out of normal hours, very pleased at the availability of 24 hr practice, and very surprised at speed of appt, more than happy with this service, huge thanks due. Also thanks to our vet who called for a follow up. Our pet not seriously damaged by her accident, so once seen, soon sorted. We witnessed another animal being dealt with, and the situation didn't seem great, but owners treated with compassion, and given a lot of time, and it was lovely to see the outcome was not as drastic as feared, and the time given to them was impressive. No rush, truly caring. Totally positive support and admiration for Medivet from me.

I had to bring my poorly dog to then late one night. Having never used emegency vet before I can say that from start to finish the process was explained and they took time to reassure me. They greeted my dog by name on arrival and took such great care with him. He is now well on the mend and I think I may well now use this vet team more regularly. Brilliant team. Thank you!

We took our rabbit fearing the worst but was soon put at ease. The vet was so good with him explained everything he was doing. He was a lovely vet and knew we were very concerned like all pet owners are. If we had an emergency in the future ( hope not ) we would use this animal hospital. I would just like to add the antibiotics the vet told us to give our rabbit in the next five days have got him back to his normal self. Thank you again.
