Meet the Team - Kate Etridge

Updated: Mar 8, 2021


Small Animal and Canine Hydrotherapist


I'm new here at Fit4dogs, you will usually see me on a Thursday. I have been a Qualified Veterinary nurse since 2004 and worked in the veterinary industry for over 20 years. I decided to add to my skillset a couple of years ago and studied alongside working as a vet nurse for my Canine Hydrotherapy Certificate in both pool and treadmill. I completed this qualification in December 2019, I now have the pleasure of providing nursing and rehabilitation for my furry four-legged friends. I love my work now I have the best of both worlds.

I share my home with my favourite humans; my husband Iain (who also works within the veterinary industry as a vet surgeon) and my Son Isaac who has just started secondary school. My Furbabies are Errol my black labrador and Tyrone who is an English bulldog - he's my baby as I have hand-reared him from day one and is always my shadow at home. We also have a British shorthaired Cat called 'Mouldy Cat' (she looks a mouldy colour haha), Tony Cat who is my feral rescue hand-reared kitten, and another feral garden cat called Evangeline. As if the family wasn't big enough, I have also expanded my garden space to include some chickens.

I love all animals hence my passion for caring for them, and my goal is to ensure each client in my care and owner receive the best experience and treatment. I can't wait to meet you and yours and hear your stories of how you came to have them in your lives.
