Louise has been a nurse in veterinary practice for 19 years. Prior to coming to Derwent Valley Vets when we opened in 2016 she had worked first in private practice and then for 12 years for the PDSA where she met Rebecka and Claire.

Louise is dog crazy! She has a very fit and athletic Vizla with whom she competes at agility, does gundog training and runs in the relatively new sport of canicross. She has recently added little “Figgy”, a working cocker spaniel to her pack and he is settling in well. All her dogs come to work with her and she can often be seen with them walking along the banks of the Derwent before and after work.

Louise has a Diploma in Canine Massage Therapy and runs sessions offering Galen massage at the practice. Her healing hands are ideal for animals who have had an injury or who are starting to suffer with aches and pains. She is passionate about inpatient care and is an excellent theatre nurse
