I've been with Medivet since 2018. Before working with Medivet I trained as a hair stylist with Toni&Guy, I worked there for six years since leaving school. I thoroughly enjoyed my time within hairdressing, learning new skills and meeting new people but my true passion is working with animals. I'm hoping to gain a wide variety of experience in all aspects of veterinary nursing. At home I have my horse called Mars, three cats called Gus, Moose and Dora and two guinea pigs named Peaches and Iris. Outside of work a big part of my free time is spent at the stables with the horses or going on dog walks. I also enjoy going to the cinema, meals out and being sociable.

Needed a last minute (late!) vaccination for my dog, and Hockley isn’t my usual Medivet, but they managed to fit us in and were brilliant. Thank you !

Thank you so much for coming to my home, so my Jubb could spend his final moments peacefully in his own environment. So caring and compassionate. Nik operated on him as a puppy, to prevent hip dysplasia. He was such a large Labrador so this operation gave him quality of life for 11 years - he was enjoying his walking only the day before he started to deteriorate. Great care throughout his life x

Sadly our cat Biscuit became unwell all of a sudden she was 17 years old unfortunately we had to make the tough decision of letting her go. This vets treated us with compassion and were very professional.Today we recieved a beautiful card saying how sorry they were.💕 It was handwritten and with some forget me not seeds to plant as we took her home to bury in a special place in our garden.😌

The team in Hockley branch supported us when we lost our 15 year old jack Russell in lockdown And we have a new addition to the family with our 13 month old Maltese They have given us great care and support with our puppy he’s received all the treatment he needs I would recommend Medivet Hockley as they always great us with a smile The only points I have is you don’t always answer the phone And the reception desk isn’t always manned and we are standing for periods of time More parking would be better as parking over the road costs and the road is dangerous busy But over all we are happy so far

An amazing practice that looks after the humans as well as they do our beasties. They don’t rush you, they explain everything. Give you options and alternatives. They care about our pets with a passion and it shows, that starts from the moment they answer the phone. The staff are amazing.

A big thank you to Nick and the team at Medivet. You showed caring and compassion when having to make that really hard decision to put our beloved Growler to sleep today. As always you gave the best advice in the interests of our cat for which we are extremely grateful for. He’s left a huge void in our life but you were absolutely the people to trust and treated him with the respect he deserved.

This is my little 9 week old pup, Dolly. Unfortunately, she got her little paws on some ham, and it gave her severe gastroenteritis. Medivet were exceptionally helpful and so thorough on the phone during the 24 service (Southend), and the Hockley practice’s staff are wonderful. So caring, warm and friendly and have made me feel completely secure in knowing my little pup’s going to be ok. I highly recommend this practice.
