Louise Rayment-Dyble

Partner and Veterinary Surgeon

I grew up surrounded by birds and other animals, sparking my interest in a veterinary career. I decided to specialise in exotic medicine – a subject I've always been passionate about. After working in practices for years, I recognised a need for better services for all species and took over management in 2009 alongside my husband, Stuart. I'm now the East of England representative to the British Veterinary Association Council. We live with our son, Alex and miniature schnauzer, Humphrey.

I originally planned to work in conservation and then on acquiring my first bearded dragon -a "very spoiled" Ziggy realised I wanted a more 'hands on' practical job and hence became a vet, specialising in exotics.

I'm Louise’s sister and have been a part of the team for over eight years with a total of 17 years veterinary experience. I'm happy to see anything scaly, furry or feathery and have always had a strong interest in science. This teamed with my strong love of animals led to a career as a veterinary surgeon. With two lion-haired rabbits, chickens, four giant African land snails and my nine-year-old daughter Madeline to entertain, my hands are pretty full outside of surgery time. In any spare time I enjoy travelling the country in support of my partner Daniel and his stock-car racing hobby.

Head Veterinary Nurse

I qualified in 1992 as a vet nurse and joined the team in April 2018 as Head Nurse. I lived in Canada for a while and was employed at an emergency clinic, among others, where I developed an interest in emergency and critical care work. After growing up surrounded by dogs and cats (and the occasional rabbit, guinea pig and many hamsters), I always knew I wanted to be a veterinary nurse. I'm also proud to have trained many student nurses, and have an award in dog training and behaviour, which is my favourite area of interest. At home I have a 10-year-old border collie called Taylor and enjoy walking and training her. I'm also an avid fan of TV crime series'

After deciding that a graphic design degree wasn’t right for me, I trained and qualified as a Veterinary Nurse. After working in the industry for over 27 years, I joined the practice in November 2015. When not working, I enjoy walking the dog and gardening. I also have a creative side, with a interest in arts and crafts including knitting, quilting and sewing.

I joined the team in February 2015. With many years experience working in the pet retail trade, I've gained experience and qualifications in dog nutrition, flea and worm treatments and dog training. I've always had a strong interest in animals, more specifically their behaviour and so a career in practice seemed to be the perfect fit.

I cannot thank the team enough at this place. Thank you so much to the vet Monika who helped my rabbit Twix. She was so ill and I was so worried about her but she kept me 100 % informed at all times. I was even allowed to visit her for a bit ! They really know their stuff which is why I wanted to avoid my usual vets and I was not disappointed ! She is now back to eating and has been back to binkying all afternoon in the Garden whilst I worked outside. Thank you for being so wonderful with the around the clock care you provided and for putting up with her "sass" once again I cannot thank you all enough. Here she was tonight after a busy afternoon !

I came to All Creatures for a second opinion as I was a little left in the lurch by my usual vet. They were really lovely. Saw my dog quickly and arranged for surgery the next day. I was impressed with the level of care and efficiency. He's back home safe and recovering well. Highly recommend.

I took my Quaker parrokeet as her appetite has been a bit off so I brought her to all creatures, who responded straight away to booking an appointment and seeing her. The reception were extremely friendly. You have to wait in the car which I think is brilliant considering there is still a pandemic in the world and it's only a few steps from the doorstep anyway. One of the lovely vets came out to see us and said she recommended a beak trim, I suffer with anxiety and was very worried but the lady talked me through it and told me she was in safe hands and I just said take her. I felt at ease and that sky was safe in this vet hands, the vet was brilliant. Sky came out ten minutes later and was absolutely fine and I worried for nothing, her beak was so much better and since then she has been eating and drinking more, was a relief and what an asset the vet is to the company! Great experience all round and will definitely be coming here in the future!

I can’t praise these wonderful people highly enough. They are kind, calm, understanding and very importantly not judgmental. It has been a month since I unfortunately had to say goodbye to my beautiful dog there. We had lived a very unconventional life, a lot spent on the road. She was my best friend always at my side and I was devastated to find that she was so ill. Everyone did their utmost to help her and I so appreciate the time they spent with me on the phone before and after whilst in a flood of tears and grief to help me come to terms with her leaving. I’m indebted to them.

Fantastic vet clinic! Always hard to find a vet that specialises in small animals like rodents. The vets here are great. Nôs the hamster was seen the same day I rang and the vet was very thorough and caring. Reception were great too. Would 100% recommend, especially if you have a rodent.

Becky was great at looking after our little guinea piggy. She shortly came back with a happy pig having a piece of hay removed from its eye with a local anaesthetic. Could not be happy with the service I received. Thank you staff!

My cat recently broke her pelvis after falling from my first floor flat. Both vets that I spoke to, Jorge, and the Greek lady (sorry I don't know her name!) were very friendly and helpful. They took their time to explain everything that needed explaining and made me feel a lot better about a stressful situation.

I highly recommend this vets to anyone looking for professional treatments for your fur babies. Today was a very sad day for me and my family. We discovered that our pet rat had two tumour and was in much discomfort. After receiving advice from our vets, we were referred to All Creatures Healthcare for further information that our vet couldn't provide. I had never been to this vets before but felt comfortable straight away as each member of staff I saw were super friendly and attentive. Once Jacks (our rat) was accessed, it was worse news than we thought. The only humane option for him was to have him put to sleep. I was on my own and had never dealt with such a situation and was extremely upset. The young girl (should have took a name) who was dealing with me was more than understanding. She allowed me to say my goodbyes in a private room away from the waiting area. I was given as much time as I needed and brought a glass of water from the other staff. Once my precious boy was gone I was given the option to receive a foot print and some of his fur to keep. I didn't even realise this was an option but it was very much appreciated. They are two thing out of many i will cherish forever. Once everything was done I needed to call a taxi to get home and the lady on reception offered straight away to make the call for me. I was still upset and was only just holding back tears. Never in my life have I been taken care of with such care and thought. This practice was very busy and still they went out of thier way for me. It is not something I will ever forget. I had just gone through the worse experience in my life but dare i say, it would have been far worse without the support they gave me. So thank you to everyone at All Creatures Healthcare from the bottom of my heart. You went above and beyond and I will never forget how kind you all were to me and the care you took of our precious rat. Best veterinary I've ever been to. Amber
