From a young age I have always had a keen interest and absolute passion for animal welfare. I have enjoyed working at various animal sanctuaries, caring for a large range of animals from ferrets, and chickens to sheep and ponies. At college I studied animal care and I hope to go to college to become a RVN with Medivet in the future. Outside of work I love being with my family, going on days out and spending time with our rescued cats, guinea pigs and April the rabbit

We have Max, a very intimidating 40+kg military grade German Sheppard. The Staff are always accommodating and Gerrard is very patient and caring, especially as he really doesnt like his check ups xD

Been with this vet for 14 years with my 2 boxers, zero complaints. Caring, friendly and professional providing a service above and beyond expectation. Cannot praise them enough, a thoroughly excellent all round service and lovely set of people from top to bottom. If only all things in life could be this way !

They go above and beyond at this practice and they have turned my dogs life around and saved him from being put down, the previous vet practice tried to convince me 4 times in 2022 that there was nothing more they could do for him. Thank god I found this vet xx

We've been going to Medivet Thorpe St. Andrew for almost three years now, and the staff and the Vets are always friendly and professional and ensure that our pup gets the best affordable care. Easy to make an appointment, and worth the monthly health plan as well.

After I lost my cat to cancer and lost trust with my old vets as she wasnt cared for properly too many different vets saying too many different things and confusing me they took Penelope my other cat in as a new client even though their books were full they are all so friendly and caring and have always been good with me as i am autistic and my pets are my whole world I couldn't ask for better people to look after them and they explain things in a way I can easily understand Gerhard has a heart of gold and all of them are amazing and will look after any of my pets now and in the future

I've had such fantastic service from Thorpe Medivets. Mostly for small animals - guinea pigs, rabbits and chickens - but the care provided has been outstanding and all staff have been so supportive when we've brought poorly animals who were sadly not going to make it. All staff have been so caring and made the experience a lot better due to their compassion towards the animals and me as the owner.
