Sophie Peters – Registered Veterinary nurse

I started Pet Nurse Modbury in January 2016 having lived in the beautiful town of Modbury in the South Hams for over 10 years. I am married to John, we have two daughters, Isla and Willow and a cat called Baloo.

I am a qualified and Registered Veterinary Nurse with 12 years of experience involved in the running of a local, mixed branch practice. I am qualified to NVQ level 3 with a credit and won the British Small Animal Veterinary Association, Veterinary Nursing Level 3 Award for achieving the highest marks in the country. I enjoy doing continuing professional development particularly in animal behaviour.

As a young adult I went backpacking to Australia and then through Asia using local transport from Indonesia to India.

I grew up locally on a farm near Diptford around pet and working dogs, along with cats, rabbits, ponies, horses, dairy cows and chickens. This gave me a huge range of experiences including working with collies to bring dairy cows in for milking and breaking in ponies.

I strive to create positive relationships with all the animals and their care givers.

I have public liability dog walker/pet minder insurance for peace of mind.
