Her special interests include acupuncture and pain management, complementary medicine, internal medicine, including cardiac and renal medicine, soft tissue surgery, eye surgery, small mammals and exotics. She does extensive work for the RSCPA and other rescue charities, and is a keen advocate of neutering to prevent unwanted pets and preventable health conditions.
She is also trained in Veterinary Acupuncture and has a list of pets who have benefited from her acupuncture treatments. This has lead to an interest in other complimentary therapies, including the use of Aloe Vera products to promote healing.
After a total of 13 years in practice, she felt there was a need for an independent vet who was not answerable to a corporate structure and could make decisions based on what was best for the animal rather than what would make a non-veterinary management team the most profit. She currently lives in Cotgrave with her partner, Mandy Coleman-Field, three dogs, two rabbits, one cat, one bearded dragon and one terrapin.
Erica graduated from the Royal (Dick) College of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. After a brief stint in Wakefield and acquiring her first greyhound, she moved to the East Midlands, where she worked under the orthopaedic specialist Andrew Robinsion, MRCVS for several years. For the last 7 years, she has been the sole full-time vet at a central Nottingham surgery, and has gained qualifications in Veterinary Acupuncture as well as Nursing Assessor. She has also done extensive weekend and night work for local emergency services.
Mandy has been a life-long lover of animals and has had pets as long as she can remember.
She has a background in logistics management, retail management and qualifications in accounting and bookkeeping. Managing a veterinary surgery brings together the passion Mandy has for caring for animals with the common sense and business skills needed for a successful practice.
I have always wanted to work with animals, from birth I’ve been surrounded by all types of animals, giving me the confidence to be around animals.
Dogs are a big part of my life, as from a very young age I was visiting dog shows and dog sitting for over 14 dogs at a time. Having animals in my life is an everyday routine for me, I have two very cute rabbits, Oscar and Olive and one very lively chihuahua named Ava.
I have studied and passed with distinctions a veterinary assistant level 2 course and have gained work experience in veterinary nursing before I came to All Creatures Veterinary Centre. I also worked in retail as second in command for 7 years. I had worked at All Creatures for 2 years, when they promoted me from assistant manager to practice manager I was delighted. I continue to learn and develop in my management skills on a daily basis and have also completed leadership and management CPD's.
Having been Erica’s partner for the last five years, she is already experienced in out-of-hours emergency anaesthetics, bandaging (thanks to her own dogs), assisting with caesarean sections, and, most importantly, aftercare.
Since a young girl I’ve always been a lover of all animals and have wanted to work with them.
Since becoming a trainee veterinary nurse my family and I have adopted a two year old Alaskan malamute named Ella, whom we all love very much. I’ve always been fascinated with science and passed with 3 A Level B’s in Chemistry, Physics and Biology, and wish to progress my knowledge with veterinary medicine once I become a fully qualified veterinary nurse.
I began working full time at All Creatures in 2016 after previously volunteering at the weekend. I have a strong background in account management and deal with the claims for the company as the in house insurance advisor and assistant manager.
I have a cat called Pablo, who I originally fostered via work when he was only a few weeks old and then went on later to adopt him.
I began working at all creatures in 2017 as work experience, I have just finished an animal management and biological science course and am aiming to become a veterinary nurse.
I have always had a love for animals ans grew up surrounded and caring for lots of different species.
I have been working for All Creatures for two and a half years now as their receptionist. Previous to that I worked in a small family run optician for eleven years. I like working at All Creatures as every day is different, with new and old clients coming in with their pets. I like chatting with our clients and making them feel at ease, as some times its a little upsetting for them if their pets are unwell.
I have two mini long haired dachshunds and that like to make it clear they are around, they are very cheeky and funny.
I joined All Creatures as a student vet nurse in 2016. I completed all of my placements here and graduated from Nottingham Trent University July 2018.
I have two very naughty, pygmy goats named Louis and Bernie, as well as a horse named Ollie and two guinea pigs named Hector and Dudley.
