We are a two site small animal practice in South Lakes, first established in the early 20th century. We are passionate about animal care and our skilled team of veterinarians and vet nurses are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your animals. Because we love animals and strive to provide excellent continuity of care, we are open six days a week and have access to 24-hour emergency care.
Amanda has been with the practice for over 30 years and knows it inside out. She works hard to keep the practice running as smoothly and efficiently as possible from an administration point of view. When not at work Amanda enjoys getting out on the fells with her mischievous Collie and has a number of rescue cats which demand lots of attention. She also pet-sits in the local area, especially for pets who may need medications giving.
Anne helps with the large number of insurance claims we get and is also our in-house mathematician as she does our banking. She is very handy with a camera and is responsible for the photos on our website. She also enjoys getting out walking in this beautiful corner of the world.
Linda is our afternoon receptionist in Ulverston. She is always ready with a beaming smile to greet our clients and their pets and loves making a fuss of the animals. Linda works hard to ensure our clients receive the best service from the moment they come into the practice, making sure that clients are completely happy before they leave. Linda has a Collie called Poppy who keeps her busy.
Joanne is one of our Barrow receptionists. She has been with our practice for quite some time and knows our clients in Barrow really well. She adores the pets that come in and is always ready with a bag of treats for those that are looking a little worried. When not at work Joanne has her own growing brood of pets at home to keep her busy. She and her husband have trained Bloodhounds who compete in trials and are very useful in the case of a missing pet locally.
Carol is our morning receptionist in Ulverston. Always ready with a warm welcome and friendly advice, she works very hard to co-ordinate our Healthy Pet Club for our Ulverston clients. Carol loves to meet clients and their pets and is always ready with a fuss for pets that look worried. She is a keen runner and enjoys getting out and about with her lovely Collie, Flossy.
Lesley is our wonderful cleaner. Vets are well known for leaving a trail of destruction in their wake and Lesley works hard every morning to ensure the Ulverston practice is looking top-notch before our clients come in. Lesley is kept busy by her exceptionally cute little Terrier cross Lola who could chase her ball around the park all day if she could.
