Pauline Sell qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 1991. Whilst working in general practice for several years she obtained a Certificate in Small Animal Surgery allowing her to pursue her special interest in surgery. Since 2005, when Pauline set up the Mobile Veterinary Service, the demand for personal care has grown, leading to the need for office and surgical premises at Darwin Cottage, Hatfield Heath. The cottage is designed to be an extension of the home service that Pauline provides, so that animals needing to attend for minor procedures feel comfortable and completely ‘at home’. Pauline also sees surgical referral cases from other vets.
Since 2001 Inga Keil gained lots of experience in the veterinary profession before starting her university degree and qualifying as a veterinary surgeon in 2013. She has worked in Essex for 4 years and is interested in all aspects of small animal veterinary work, particularly internal medicine. Her compassionate and friendly approach allows her to provide excellent care for all her patients and clients.
Nicky Rose RVN
I started my Veterinary Nursing journey in 2001 and qualified in 2004. I undertook further study with The University of Tennessee and became a Certified Canine Rehabilitation practitioner. This enables me to rehabilitate and perform physiotherapy techniques under Veterinary instruction. I Have worked in various settings including small practice to a teaching hospital. I am currently studying for my Certificate in Emergency and Critical care with one exam to go.
My love for my work lies within the bespoke care that a small practice can offer and am very excited about being part of Pauline’s team. Outside of work I have 2 young children and a naughty chihuahua x dachshund who loves to play and have long walks. I also teach line dancing and paint pet portraits when time allows.
Kate Radbourne helps with administration, reception and all aspects of running the practice.
Hazel Maundrell - Receptionist
Christine Clark - Receptionist
Christine joined the surgery in March 2018. Christine previously had a long career in senior administrative posts in both public and private sectors in London and Essex. She is now enjoying a more local role where she can combine her passion for animal welfare whilst providing administrative support to the practice. She is also (when she has some time!) works as a volunteer for English Heritage, running guided tours at Audley End House.
We can also provide specialist services at Darwin Cottage in veterinary dermatology, (skin) and cardiology (hearts), where travelling specialists can see your pets conveniently and affordably. Where necessary we have great knowledge and experience to refer your pet to specialists elsewhere should this be required.
