Veterinary Surgeon:

Martin Reber

Martin hails from Germany where he qualified as a vet. He brought his most un-German sense of humour to England many years ago and has generally ‘gone-native’. In his spare time he dedicates himself to being the practice’s leading expert on batteries and trying not to fall off his bike.

Head Nurse:

Charlotte Sturdy

Charlotte trained as a veterinary nurse in her home town in Surrey before moving to Brighton. She has collected a fine houseful of catty waifs and strays and her car is recognised by all the seagulls in her street.

Veterinary Surgeon:

Eili Dettmering

Eili is the second of our teutonic contingent (in the nicest possible way). She has also settled happily in our little island realm and has long experience of caring for the pets of Sussex. She is a qualified veterinary acupuncturist and is happy to discuss referral cases. Those of us with a fear of needles give her a wide berth! When not doing this she can be found pampering her horse and two dogs, or performing impossible feats of distance running.

Head Veterinary Nurse:

Karen Davis

Karen has many years of experience working in a veterinary charity in Brighton and we feel fortunate to have her smile around the practice. She also keeps us all well hydrated with 'a lovely cup of tea'. She gets all emotional about her fluffy bunnies and piggly-wigglies. Make of that what you will.

Veterinary Surgeon:

Joanna Szymanska

Since joining the team, vet Joanna has bought with her enthusiasm and a fresh approach. She has an understandable passion for all things feline and enjoys every aspect of veterinary life. In her spare time, Joanna can either be found studying, walking, or trying to befriend reluctant horses.

Veterinary Nurse:

Emma Care

Emma is an experienced RVN who joined us in 2020, but it already seems like she's been with us forever (in a good way!). Calm in a crisis and always able to brighten our day with her unique outlook and questionable dance moves. Emma shares her life with a cat named Desmond, plus a small sized human and a fully grown one.

Animal Care Assistant

Holly Flynn

Holly helps us out with everything. She currently works as an animal care assistant and we have high hopes that in the future she'll train to join the ranks of veterinary nurse. Holly loves spending time with our furry visitors and can often be found shoulder deep in the cattery pens giving extra TLC to anyone who will allow it. Holly is keen to help out in any capacity at any time of day - but needs time to warm up a little when there's an early start!
