Post operative rehab stay.


We had to go away and I was really worried about where he could go. I needn't have been concerned as Emma is brilliant. She filled me with such confidence I didn't have a moment's worry while we were away. There are no superlatives to express how I feel.


Thank you Emma

I met Emma through my daughter when my German Shepherd was impossible to cut her claws even the vet could not manage it as Meiska was so nervous. Emma was so patient with Meiska, she gained her trust more and more each time. Meiska is now perfect with Emma having her claws cut. Emma is very kind, caring considerate and very reliable. Meiska now licks Emmas face while she is cutting her claws instead of being the nervous wreck.

My mind is now at ease knowing I have Emma to rely on.

Emma is compassionate, empathetic and professional. I couldn't have asked for better care when my dog needed it most.

Fitzpatrick’s referred us to Emma following our dogs road traffic accident which lead to a fractured Pelvis, Limb and ureathra. We were absolutely delighted to find someone with such skill and care to look after Boris. It really set my mind at ease knowing he was in such good hands.

Our Labradoodle puppy Poppy loves Emma to bits. Emma is great at training Poppy, taking her out for walks and introducing her to other dogs. She comes home so happy and content. Emma gives us a school report each day, takes photos and the fact that she's a train veterinary nurse really fills me with confidence. Would I recommend? Definitely. Thank you Emma :-)

We would highly recommend Emma who provided an excellent service. She's very friendly and caring. She Looks after other pets as if her own, which is something very important to us. She certainly gave us peace of mind that Dexta was in the best hands whilst we were away!
You can tell she's an experienced professional, she really knows her stuff :) 
Thank you Emma, we will definitely use you again X

I can truly rely on Emma. She is trustworthy, loyal, confident and extremely thorough in her role; she has an excellent knowledge base and has an excellent understanding of the condition’s any orthopaedic/neurosurgery hospital would treat and the surgical procedures practiced. She has personally undertaken to qualify to diploma level (surgery and medicine), which is a true reflection of her commitment to the veterinarian profession and our animal patients. Emma’s level of direct patient care is excellent; she has a natural intuition and connection to the patients in her care.

Emma has such a calm way about her around cats . She's confident and exudes an air of peace which keeps them calm friendly. She has had so much experience over the years and this always shows in how she approaches an animal, being warm and kind. When she looked after my cats I don't think they were too worried about me not being around at all! Emma is my number one cat carer

Having worked with Emma I can honestly say she is one of the most professional and caring people that you could wish to trust your pet with. Highly recommend!

Emma has played a key role in the evolution of the Practice over these past years. Throughout, Emma has had an impeccable attendance record and has strived to provide the best possible care for our patients. We are grateful for her hard work and commitment to both the people and the animals within Fitzpatrick Referrals during this time. Emma is a kind and compassionate person and a talented veterinary nurse.

George has been going to Emma's for about 6 months now for day care and holiday cover post surgery. I just cannot recommend Emma highly enough, he is welcomed into her home and family as one of their own and has strong bonds now with her own dog and children!! He is always very excited when I drop him off there and with Emma's expertise and knowledge I have no doubt whatsoever that he is in the best possible hands. Please, look no further- you won't regret it!!!

Emma is one of the only people i would want my little girl staying with, she is trustworthy, knowledgeable and loving. She will treat your pet as if they were one of her own.

Katie Falshaw

Emma is one of the most caring, professional and knowledgeable nurses I have met. Her clinical skills are excellent, she is kind and gentle with the animals and is totally empathetic to their needs. I cannot speak highly enough of her and I know you will feel the same way when your pets meet her.

‘ Emma looked after our black Labrador Bella after a major operation at Fitzpatrick's. We had already arranged a holiday before  the necessity of an operation occurred so we were ready to cancel our holiday. Luckily i was put in touch with Emma who proved not only extremely professional but a real ‘GEM’. She went through all Bella’s history, needs and care.

She gave Bella such excellent care and we were particularly appreciative of the daily bulletins and photos. Bella went back again recently and obviously had very happy vibes as as soon as we arrived Emma was greeted with lots of fuss and she went off very happily. We couldn't have been more pleased. Emma is not only a professional but someone who truely cares and loves animals.’

I feel so lucky to have found Emma, as I trust her implicitly with my German Shepherd puppy. I come home to a happy boy which is all that matters to me :)   Emma is flexible, replicates my training and treats my pup as her own. Emma dropped everything to be with my puppy when he was ill, so I didn't have to risk losing my new job and took him to the vet for me. Every visit, I come home to a useful, informative report & includes the fun he's had with his Auntie Emma, which is fab! I would definitely recommend Emma to anyone, as long as we get to keep her!

Michelle and Eric

I am very impressed with Emma and the 5 * service she gives George with taking the time to send me regular updates and pictures of George and a full written report at the end of the day. Excellent service, peace of mind that Emma is a trained vet nurse of many years. She shows she really cares and is passionate about the animals she cares for. I would highly recommend Emma.

Rachel Annette

Emma is the most caring person and very knowledgable in animal welfare. I won't trust my two pups with anyone else they have a ball with her and they love it.

Hayley Rahal

Emma boarded my little puss cat, at her own home whilst we went away from long weekend. We can't praise Emma's care for him enough. We got numerous updates and pictures on him whilst we were away. When we picked him up he looked very happy! We will definitely be using her again

I have used this service as both a walking and pop in service. Dogs very happy and contented when I returned. Great professional and fast reponses. Please keep up the good work!
