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.

The staff at the canvey island Medivet are so helpful, understanding and caring. They are always there to listen and comfort you when needed. They get to know the animals and the owners. Every time I go in with one of my cats they always ask how are the others doing. The vets and nurses of canvey island Medivet are fantastic wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Thank you for looking after Mildred. Ian initially identified the problem for my rabbit after a being referred by a colleague and operated a few days later. He explained the procedure and what the difficulties would be with an older rabbit. I felt reassured that she was in the best hands and he would do everything he could. I was kept updated throughout the day on her progress. She is now home and eating everything in sight 😃

Having been told by our local practice that due to Covid restrictions we were not able to be inside, or hold our beloved 17 year old family dog whilst she was euthanised due to very very poor health, my husband phoned all of the local vets to find someone one who could allow us to be present, hold her and show her the care and compassion in her final moments that she deserved. The team at Medivet Canvey were the only practice that allowed us to do this and be present, holding her and loving her during her final moments. They were so compassionate from start to finish and looked after us and our beautiful girl, before during and after our visit. So caring and genuinely upset at our loss . I trusted them completely and will be forever in their debt for allowing us to be at peace with our loss and confident that our girl would really be taken care of. I will treasure forever the paw prints that they so kindly gave us after our loss and I highly highly recommend this practice.
