Veterinary Surgeon

Read Dimitrios bio

Hi. I am Dimitrios Tachos and I joined the Salford Companion Care in April 2020. Having grown in a farming family in Greece, I developed a connection with animals and an interest in animal health and animal welfare from a young age.   I completed my studies from the “Faculty of Veterinary Science”, University of Thessaly (Greece), and then moved to England in 2012 in order to expand my horizons and improve my expertise and knowledge in the Veterinary field.

Over the years in U.K. I have gained much experience working as a government Vet, however my passion for the clinical side has led me to get back to the small animal practice. I am a vet because I love animals, I always wanted to work with them and even if sometimes it’s a demanding job, is also one of the most rewarding jobs anyone could choose. So, I am here to help your pets have the best treatment possible and with the fabulous Salford team to give them the best care and love.

My name is Steph and I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2016. I started my journey as a Head Nurse here in January 2020.

I have a 3 year old shih-tzu called Martha who you may see now and again in the practice as she loves to come to work! I also have two cats called Smudge and Mischief and a 12 year old rabbit called Otis who loves nothing more than hopping around outside all day.

I love the variety of animals that come through the door but I especially love small mammals such as rabbits, rats, guinea pigs and hamsters for example. I am currently completing my Certificate in Small Animal Nursing so that I can give your small furies gold standard care when they are here!

I also completed my ISFM feline friendly nursing certificate in 2018 to make your cats experience at the vets as stress free as possible!

In my spare time I love taking Martha for long walks  and socialising with friends.I look forward to meeting all of your fur babies and providing lots of advice (and plenty of cuddles for them too!).

Hi I'm Hayley, I've been nursing for 18 years and qualified for 10 and a half years.

I have 4 cats aged 16, called Baby, Sooty, Tiger and Parsley. 3 of them will be 17 years old in February.

I have 5 chickens called Tikka, Paprika, Biryani, Tandoori and Jelfrezi. Jelfrezi is very naughty. I also have two children.

I love cats & chickens. I am very good with rabbits, birds, chickens and cats. I'm excellent with naughty and aggressive cats.

My job is very rewarding and each day is different, you never know what each day can bring.

I started at Salford companion care as a locum in August and as the team are excellent I decided to take the RVN position.

I love family and friend get togethers and dancing, I especially love my garden as I am a keen gardener.

But most of all I could spend my days in my garden with my chickens as they are comical and mischievous.

Registered Veterinary Nurse

Read Giselle bio

Hi everyone I am Giselle the nurse at Companion Care Salford. I am a chinese Malaysian that studied and worked in Australia for the past 7 years. After the 2020 bushfires, I had the opportunity to treat injured kangaroos! I wasn’t able to have pets of my own whilst in Sydney, so I did a lot of pet sitting to compensate for the lack of furry friends at home. I love being active and constantly on the go - you might recognise me in the city with my bicycle and pink jacket! If your furbaby comes in for a surgery, I will be cuddling them whenever I’m free. Don’t you worry about them being lonely!

My name is Madalina Obreja and I am the JVP here at Salford Vets4Pets. I have graduated from Business and Management University in 2021 but I continue my journey in studying MSc Global Business and Management this year. My previous studies were in Romania when I graduated Law University 15 years ago.

I have worked as a manager since I was 20 years old but this opportunity with Vets4Pets not only that helped me to expand my own vision and knowledge has also helped to find my stability and find my purpose in life.

When my journey started with Salford Vets4Pets over 2 years ago as a manager at that time I knew that my path to follow was to become a JVP. I have worked hard to build up the practice and the team, and constantly seeking for opportunity for further development. I have worked previously for eight year for Vets4Pets but this opportunity has coordinated my steps into this lovely path of becoming a JVP.

We are working with Orthopaedics, Internal Medicine and Heart Specialist alongside with our permanent team that are supported by us in further certificates studies as we want to make sure we can offer the best care and treatment to our patients. You are very welcomed to meet myself, my business partner and the whole team here at Salford and we hope we can offer the best support we can.
