Veterinary Surgeons

Louise LohneLouise Lohne - Partner and Veterinary Surgeon

I am originally from Norway and graduated from St Istvan University of Veterinary Science in Budapest, Hungary, in 2006. I decided to move to England after finishing my degree and started my career at a mixed practice (small animals, as well as farm animals and horses) in Derbyshire. I spent 2 years there before working as a locum, mainly in London. I joined the Esher practice in October 2008 and recently became its lead vet and then its first Partner following Medivet's takeover in July 2012. I have a keen interest in soft tissue surgery and dentistry.

Monica MoraMonica Mora - Partner and Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated as a veterinary surgeon from Turin in 2010, and started to work at the University Hospital. I also worked for three years in a private practice open 24/7 in my town. I moved to England in January 2014 to work as emergency night vet in Richmond hospital. I am particularly interested in emergency medicine. Medivet then gave me the great opportunity of becoming a partner in Esher, so I did!  I have a special interest in cardiology and emergency, and I'm studying a Post Graduate Certificate in Cardiology.  I love the area of greater London, the people, the river and mainly Richmond and Bushy Park. I live with my partner and my twelve-year-old dog, Veg. 

Nursing Team

Lesley SpearLesley Aylett - Head Veterinary Nurse

I started working at a small veterinary clinic in Wallington in 2002 and finished my nurse training in 2005. After qualifying I moved to another small practice in Nottingham and then moved back to London to work in a large, busy charity hospital. After 6 years there I wanted to come back to a small(ish) private practice and so I started at Medivet in May 2013. I love nurse clinics and nutrition. Outside of work I'm a complete bookworm, an avid music fan and also love my Xbox. At present I have no pets of my own but do like to borrow my parents Labrador Molly and Jack Russell Tasha.

Natasha PereraNatasha Perera - Student Veterinary Nurse

I graduated from Edinburgh University with a degree in zoology and have a keen interest in ensuring that both pets and owners enjoy their time at Medivet. I have a withdrawn guide dog called Rosa.

After completing my Zoology degree at the University of Glasgow in 2010, I travelled to various wildlife volunteer projects around the world but am now happy to be working with animals closer to home.

Stephanie CafferataStephanie Cafferata - Client Care Assistant

I have been in Veterinary Practice since I was 17, primarily as a nurse though more recently on reception only. I have been with Manor Vets for over 16 years so many of our clients know me well! I have had a variety of animals at home from ferrets to geese, chickens and ducks, a mynah bird, bottle reared lambs and of course dogs and cats. I’ve also been involved in competitive dog training to quite a high level with my previous German Shepherd. My other loves are cake decorating, gardening and following the rugby.
