Veterinary surgeons

We now have 4 vets who work at the Rochford Veterinary Surgery, combined together they have about 60 years of experience between them.

The vet practice has been owned since 1991 by Mr and Mrs Jobson. Mr Jobson qualified from the Edinburgh Vet School in 1988 and worked in Suffolk for 4 years before owning the present practice. He has a particular interest in internal medicine problems and dermatology cases as well as in ultrasound imaging. Mr and Mrs Jobson have their own dogs, cats and horses. Presently they have a young Alsatian called Harry and also have two Rescue Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, ‘Crispie’ who has a mild form of syringomyelia a neurological disease found in this breed, and ‘Freddie’ who was born with a deformed Larynx.

Some of you will also have met our experienced vet Catherine. Catherine qualified from the Royal Veterinary College and has over 10 years experience in general practice in both medicine and surgery. Growing up in the area she knows both the people and places well. Catherine has a Certificate in Veterinary Ophthalmology and enjoys all aspects of eye medicine and surgery. Catherine has Peggy at home who is a rescue spaniel with congenital cataracts.

Some of you may know Daniella who graduated in 2014 from the Royal Veterinary College and was born and raised in the local area. She joined the practice in 2018 and enjoys working with cats and exotic species. She has a post graduate certificate focused on small animal medicine. She has a Maine Coon cat at home called Pepper.

Dimitra is our newest vet who graduated in 2017 from Aristoteleio University of Thessaloniki in Greece. She now lives in Southend having previously worked in Sheffield. Dimitra enjoys soft tissue surgery and of course meeting the puppies and kittens – especially as her own dog Alfie is still in Greece for now, who she misses lots.

Always a pleasant experience when using Rochford Vets! Recent trip for annual vaccinations went without a hitch - prompt answering of the phone by the receptionist who supplied necessary information and a range of suitable appointment timeslots. The reminder service is great - i receive these via text.Upon arrival at the Vets, was greeted warmly by the receptionist and there was no waiting time. The waiting area has lots of information, leaflets etc which is great for perusing (if you have a wait).The vet herself was lovely and welcoming and did her best to put my cat at ease - super knowledgeable and professional as always.
Only be coming here for less than 6 months with my bunnies however I have to say I am blown away by the kindness they have here. Always so caring towards all my buns. Would never go anywhere else highly highly recommend 💜🐰

Rochford Vets is by far the best vets I have ever been to.They are vastly knowledgeable with years of experience and advice and treatment is delivered in a clear and reassuring manner. Nothing is too much trouble and you will feel welcome and cared for the minute you step through the door.I have been through a stressful situation with my dog requiring an operation and other treatments. I don't know what I would have done without Rochford Vets gently guiding me to the right decisions regarding her health. I am so thankful to have found them.I will never take my animals anywhere else.
Lovely staff and very dedicated. Highly recommend ed.
Brought my two bunnies to be neutered today and the staff looked after them so unbelievably well. A massive Thankyou to all the staff for looking after my two babies especially daniella. They always look after all my bunnies so well when they come into the practice for vaccinations and neutering. Would definitely recommend

I’ve used Rochford Veterinary surgery for at least 16 years now & always found the staff very caring & friendly & they have always done their very best for my pets.I highly recommend them.
Great vets, very knowledgeable and fantastic care throughout
Everyone is so lovely here. Very kind and caring. The best thing for me is they are an independent vets, and so you’re not being ripped off as soon as you step in the door. On my recent visit with my cat, all treatment options were discussed thoroughly before being undertaken. And so far, all is looking good. I can strongly recommend this vets, and already do so to any local pet owners that I meet. They’re brilliant!
It is quite simply perfect. Rochford Vets is my place for my dogs' healthcare and medical needs.
