I graduated in 2009 from the Royal Veterinary College and opened Medivet Canvey Island in 2010. The practice has grown over the years and in 2017 Ian joined me to partner the practice. In 2019 we both also took partnership of Medivet Benfleet. I have an interest in exotics, laser surgery including BOAS airway surgery and reconstructive surgery. At home I have two naughty welsh springer spaniels, Fen and Rupert, two older moggies, Tiny cat and Jasper, and two identical abyssinian kittens, James and Dorian. I also love working for the Medivet rhino project in South Africa in my spare time.

Amazing group of people helped out out straight away on Wednesday when my parrot who wasn’t even registered with them had a accident and needed treatment! So caring and professional amidst all what going on, kept with the social distancing but still did what needed to be done! Cannot thank them enough 💖👍

I messaged late last night and got a reply straight away, sent photo's in of the issue and had a phone consultation today, an hour later medication was ready, fantastic organisation in the car park to keep social distancing when collecting meds. absolutely fantastic service as ever during a very difficult time. you guys are brilliant at giving our beautiful animals 100% every single time.

A great choice of vet. We've been using Medivet since 2017 and it was a great move, Maurino Luis is an excellent vet and great surgeon, the team are all very caring and friendly. All three procedures we've had done with our two dogs has had great outcomes. They even recommended a great insurer.

I love Medivet because they are really good with my animals, they don't ignore them because they are guinea pigs. There are two vets there that have seen mine and they are brilliant, as they know about piggies and you can see by the way that they handle them that they really care.

We cant recomend Medivet Canvey / Southend enough. The love and care they have given our boy Stanley is outstanding. Especially Lizzie coming in on a day off and saving his life! It's clear everyone, the Vets, the nurses and front of house staff love their jobs and truly care for every animal. We will always be so grateful for all you have all done. Caroline, Paul, and Stanley boy 👩🏻‍🦰🧒🏻🐶
