Emily Price

Emily Price

Receptionist

Emily has worked in the Veterinary Industry for almost 10 years and she loves it! It is an environment she has always wanted to work in and she loves meeting old and new clients and their gorgeous pets! Emily and her husband moved from Buckinghamshire three and a half years ago to Gosport. Emily lives military quarters as my husband is in the Royal Navy. They have a two-year-old son and a ten-year-old Chihuahua called Ruby, both keep them very busy!

Chloe Doswell

Chloe Doswell

Student Veterinary Nurse

Chloe has always been fascinated with caring for animals and always knew she wanted to enter into the veterinary industry. After studying a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Animal Management & Veterinary Nursing at Sparsholt, she knew she wanted to train as a nurse. She has already spent a year working in the veterinary industry and has loved the variety each day can bring. She has been lucky enough to visit her favourite place, South Africa, to study the latest methods used to catch poachers within the protected reserves and would love to go back in the future. She has owned several animals including ferrets, bearded dragons, snakes and even a tree monitor! She currently has just two dogs, Saffron and Peppa which she loves to take on long walks in the forest.

Claire Lomas BVM&S MRCVS

Claire Lomas BVM&S MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

Claire has wanted to be a vet since the time she started walking. Growing up, Claire was a keen horse-rider and bunny-keeper. She graduated from Edinburgh University where she developed a keen interest in exotic medicine and wildlife at their specialist hospital.  After graduating Claire worked in charity clinics in Morocco treating working horses and donkeys. She returned to the UK to work in a busy mixed practice in Kent that specialised in exotic species and wildlife, in which she saw everything from chihuahuas to bears.   

Claire has a great passion for conservation, which led her to work in Maldives for a couple of years rescuing and rehabilitating sea turtles at the only veterinary clinic in the county. She is still involved with the charity and in her free time she aims to help raise awareness of sea turtle and ocean conservation through education. She is also in the process of publishing some scientific work on unique sea turtle cases on the island.  Claire’s main passion outside of work is the ocean, she’s a keen surfer and kite surfer and even in the depths of a British winter you can find her out in the waves on her days off.

Claire has a broad range of interests in veterinary medicine including surgery, exotic species and behaviour and welfare of all our furry friends.

Outside of work Georgie is busy with family life, accompanying her teenage son (who is determined to be a rock star) to venues.  Whilst personally, Georgie enjoys fitness and she is a keen boot camp attendee where she joins fellow members to exercise in Southampton Common, all weathers, military style.

Jessica Dann

Jessica Dann

Clinical Director

Jess grew up mainly in South West England, surrounding herself with animals of all shapes and sizes, and was often found riding her pony over Dartmoor. Jess graduated from the Royal Veterinary College, London, in 2012 and moved to Dorset to work in a small animal and equine practice. She really enjoyed the variety of general practice and the opportunity it gave her to get to know her patients and their owners.

At home Jess and her husband have a house full, with their two rescue dogs, Toffee a lurcher cross and Tinker the terrier, as well as the two cats Teasel and Trigger. She enjoys walking the dogs, baking and spending time with friends and family.
