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 2016 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 am also a professional silversmith, hand-making silver jewellery including custom memorial pieces.

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

This service was recommended to me by Grinshill kennels when we adopted our lovely terrier Freddy(Truman). The service is fantastic. The staff are caring and enthusiastic about looking after your pets. Today I walked in with Truman who had a teasel plant entwined around his lip and beard after an energetic afternoon walk. I could not imagine safely dealing with that myself so was concerned and took him to the Harlescott surgery. He was seen immediately and thanks to the staff, right as rain in five minutes (and such a good boy). No charge. Fantastic service! Thank you.

My mum & sister had to rush our Family dog in today to the medivet Shrewsbury. They looked after them so much and made good of a bad situation. He sadly had to be put to sleep but they made him as peaceful and happy in his last moments. Thank you for looking after my family and our little boy. X

I rushed our new rescue puppy to Medivet after he was ill during the night. He was pretty poorly but I’m pleased to say that the vets & nurses were able to nurse him back to full fitness. Great facilities, very accommodating and clearly love the pets they care for. I also take my rabbits to Medivet for their vaccinations. Again they receive excellent care and a thorough health check.

My cat was rushed into the hospital two days ago with what turned out to be heart disease. He was only 6 years old and my husband and I were absolutely heartbroken when he had to be euthanised yesterday. However, I know that whilst he was in their care the staff made sure that he was as comfortable as possible and he had lots of cuddles. The staff have been fantastic, in particular Charlie. I have another cat and a dog and I will always be happy leaving them in the care of the hospital.
