Fay Cavanagh RVN CertVNES
Fay is an experienced RVN: after qualifying in 2012 she has worked in a variety of practices in the North East and spent some time working in Cambridgeshire.
Fay enjoys all aspects of her job and has a particular love for smaller mammals.
Fay lives, on what she calls the ‘right side’ of the River Tyne: Newcastle, with her 2 cats and Gerbil.
Danielle started working in the veterinary field in 2017 which has lead her to rescue 4 cats and a dog in the last 5 years! She has an interest in feline behaviour and pharmacology. In her spare time she enjoys exploring new place with the dog and snuggling up with her rescue cat Roy.
Gill qualified as a veterinary nurse in 1980, and has worked in several practices over the years, more recently as a receptionist. She has a love of animals and has had various cats and dogs – mostly rescued – her latest being Mabel, who came into the vets with an un-healing wound on her face. In her spare time Gill enjoys walking, gardening and reading.
Angela has worked in the veterinary field for over 10 years, and can now be found on reception during the first part of the week. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family and dogs.
Lauren recently joined our team as a veterinary care assistant after working for the RSPCA caring for rescue dogs.
She has a passion for dogs and dog behaviour: taking dogs that are in RSPCA care out on day trips to help socialise them with the outside world. Of course Lauren got attached to one of these dogs called Dash who she adopted and is a full time dog mam.
Lauren is now putting this knowledge to use as the vets will now call for her help if a dog needs a little extra TLC.
Lauren enjoyed fostering reptiles for the RSPCA and has been able to continue this while working at Wrights with the knowledge and advice from Allan. She also has her own reptiles at home.
Lauren is enjoying expanding her knowledge and learning the ways of the veterinary world with such an excellent team for support and guidance.
After a long career in retail, leisure and security industries it was time for Christine to make a change. She joined Wrights’ Vets in May 2022 and enjoys meeting all the fur-babies and the not-so-fur-babies and their families every day. She has 8 cats and 2 angels who she loves dearly. She enjoys spending time with her family and when she gets the opportunity loves to horse ride and read autobiographies about people she finds interesting.
Steph joined the Wrights’ Vets team in April 2021 as an Admin assistant. She is one of the few who works 5 days a week and really enjoys being part of such a lovely team. She mainly works in the office but occasionally on the reception desk. When she’s not at work she enjoys spending time with her family and cooking.
Athena Practice Pet
Athena is our charcoal corn snake. She was discovered slithering wild during the winter while Allan was working at another practice. She is approximately three feet long and, while shy, is more than happy to come out and see the world. She loves mice and slithering backwards up your top!
Tweety Practice Pet
Tweety joined us after his owner passed away. He is still getting used to being with us but enjoys joining us for lunch, and sampling whatever we have brought!
