Heather Gage

Head Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from The Royal Veterinary College in 2004. I have worked in small animal practice since then (with a very short break to have my little boy). When I moved to Norwich in 2007 I started work at the Sprowston surgery and I moved to Longwater when it opened in 2011. I love working at Longwater, we have a lovely, friendly team who are dedicated to giving the best care we can to our clients and their pets. I love consulting and meeting clients and their pets, both old and new. I particularly enjoy internal medicine and dermatology.

When I am not at work I spend time chasing a toddler and walking two crazy terriers.

Rosalyn Lamble

Deputy Head Veterinary Nurse

I am a fully qualified Veterinary Nurse of four years and I have worked within Companion Care for over 10 years on and off. I am now based full time at the Longwater branch and I love the caring team we have. I have 3 gorgeous dogs, which are definitely my world, plus maybe my husband. I am amazed at the unconditional love that dogs have for their human companions, which is why they are my favourite species. I couldn't imagine not being a veterinary nurse, its my passion not just my job.
