Practice News - early 2024


New Faces!


Regular visitors to our facebook page will know that our lovely Vet Rachel is currently on Maternity leave after the birth of her son William - we look forward to welcoming her back when she's ready to see some 4-legged babies!

In other news, we have several fairly new faces you will see around the surgery:


  • 2 New Veterinary Care Assistants, Beth and Hayley (you may recognise Beth from Reception, her first job with us!) - our VCAs are currently undergoing formal training to gain VCA certification.
  • We now have the 'Fab Five' Receptionists, with 3 working together most of the time so we can help you more quickly and efficiently.
  • We have a new Vet Teja (said as Teya) in the full-time team. She is settling into her first job with great gusto and we love having her with us.
  • We also have a new Nurse Caz. Caz is a very experienced RVN and a great asset to us, allowing us to offer an even higher standard of care and more opportunities for Nurse clinics, as she has expanded our team. Leanne (who has been with us for several years) has also moved across from weekend nursing to a more regular weekly role.
  • Nurse Rachel, who has also been with us for several years, has moved from Nursing into assisting Emma with the practice administration, and is focusing on our Pet Insurance work.

Look out for their Bios coming up on the 'Our Staff' page soon!




XL Bully Update



As of 31.01.24, the government have made it illegal to own an XL Bully without a Exemption Certificate, and after meeting various criteria (neutering, insurance, identification, and wearing a muzzle in public). Further information can be found here:


As a practice, we would like to reassure you that we are happy to continue to provide Veterinary Care for your XL bully, in the same manner as we do all of our canine patients. We do however ask (as per government legislation) that they are muzzled in the waiting room / car park, as these are public spaces. If they have a sound temperament we do not require them to wear their muzzle in our consultation rooms. Thank you for assisting us with this sad situation.
