Lucy Drew

Veterinary Surgeon

Lucydrew2 I started working at Spring Lodge in 2003 as a Kennel Assistant and continued to work while I studied for my GCSEs and A-Levels.  I was very lucky to gain the grades required to start my Veterinary Degree at the Royal Veterinary College and graduated as a Vet in 2011.  I rejoined the practice in 2012 and now enjoy all aspects of small animal medicine and surgery, especially dealing with the rabbits and small furries.  At home I have 23 rabbits, 3 cats and a dog called Dorothy.  Outside of work I am busy planning my wedding in 2015!

Veterinary Nurse, Advanced Pet Heath Counsellor

I am Spring Lodge’s Advanced Pet Health Counsellor. I am a Registered, Qualified Veterinary nurse and have been nursing for over ten years. I started at Spring Lodge in 2003 and enjoy being part of such a lovely team in a busy veterinary hospital. Running nurse consultations involves giving advice on nutrition, preventative health care, basic behaviour and general animal care.
I also organise displays, promotions, puppy parties, client information evenings and attending charity events which involves many of the staff from Spring Lodge.
In my spare time I look after our four very naughty cats and three very cute guinea pigs.

I have been working for Spring Lodge since 2013. Having been a client of Spring Lodge for many years, I was delighted to get the opportunity to work with such a friendly, dedicated team of people   I previously worked for the NHS and have been able to transfer my skills to this interesting and varied role. I own a whippet called Louie, a black cat called Pickles and have recently rescued a lurcher called Lucy through Spring Lodge. Although I am based at Great Notley, I often work at the other branches when required.
