Rose Northcott – Rose has worked at Catley Cross Vets since June 2015 and she says it was the best decision she ever made! She’s always worked with people and thoroughly enjoyed it, so to work front of house in reception combining her love of animals with enjoying working with people means she has the perfect job! Rose feels that it’s so rewarding to get to know the lovely clients and their wonderful pets, to share in their journeys, good and bad, and build relationships with them.

She has her own selection of animals; a dog, five cats, two horses, four chickens and a duck. So when she’s not working she’s busy with her animals; caring for them or riding her horse Dermot.
