Charlotte set up the Travelling Vet in 2016 because she believed that pets are often best treated in the place they feel most comfortable.
Charlotte qualified as a veterinary surgeon in 2008 from the University of Liverpool and has worked in both large and small animal practice, as well as spending three years working nights in a small animal emergency clinic. She has recently completed a certificate in advanced veterinary practice, and now concentrates on small animal medicine. Charlotte will always treat your pet as if it is her own, and is known for giving very honest and straight forward information and advice.
Charlotte lives in Killamarsh, Sheffield, with her husband (Matthew) and their three young children (Alfred, Matilda and Rupert). They have two rescue cats (Spooky and Dandelion) and two boisterous kittens (Pancake and Cupcake).
