I grew up in the wilds of Yorkshire, reading James Herriot and Richard Adams, so it seemed only natural that I became a vet. After a few years, I realised cats and dogs were a lot less muddy than farms and cows, so I moved across to small animals and joined the practice here in Poole. When not at work you'll find me teaching self-defence, curled up with my cats or being the proud mum to my cheeky teenager.

I've been with Medivet since 2018. I've lived in Dorset my whole life. I'm particularly interested in diagnostics and laboratory work. I adopted a Husky cross in April 2020 called Bruce. I love spending my time outdoors with Bruce and walking along the coast.

Tracy and her team are amazing. We were recommended Tracy when our dog was diagnosed with hip dysplasia and was really struggling with pain. She was barking until the early hours of the morning, lost interest in food, walks, toys and just looked sad all the time. Our vet told us she was on the maximum pain relief and said it was behavioural, even suggesting we should have her put down as surgery wasn't an option. On top of this, Maisie was terrified of our vet and we had to park in a different road to get her out the car 😢Then we found Tracy who treated us and maisie with so much love, care and compassion. She tweaked the pain relief constantly, sometimes speaking to us several times a week to find the right balance and referred her for surgery. From day one, Tracy was loving and kind with Maisie and now we have no problems getting her to the vets, she can't wait to go in. Maisie is now 14 weeks post of and back to our happy, loving dog ❤️

My Dog Mollie is very nervous dog, from the moment I entered the practice myself and Mollie were put at ease by the lovely receptionist who was wonderful and calming voice with Molie. Also the vet Tracey was just the same talking to Mollie the whole time and keeping her calm, she wasn't anxious at all ,she even layed herself next to the reception desk to stay with the veterinary nurse. I would recommend them very highly service and care was faultless.

Tracy was amazing with my dog Holly. Holly is a very anxious dog especially about going to the vets. As soon as we arrived Holly was made a fuss of by the receptionist which started to put her at ease. Then as soon as Tracy came into the reception she went down onto the floor with Holly making Holly think it was all a game when in fact she was getting a full check up, her jabs and a dose of worm tablets. All this happening without Holly even realising it. Magic!! Tracy took the time to talk to me about Holly's ongoing health problems. Felt Covid safe as all precautions taken. One happy dog. One happy owner.

I felt my Chelsea was in safe hands and the vet was so nice and helpful. It will only get better once we are allowed in the room with our animals, hopefully soon . . .

Like others I followed Tracy from her previous practice where she looked after my Siamese with such genuine care and compassion. She did so much, I wouldn’t see anyone else. Cannot recommend highly enough.
