We are a small animal practice in Reading, first established as part of the Nine Mile Veterinary Group set up in 1985. We are passionate about animal care and our skilled team of veterinarians and vet nurses are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your animals. Because we love animals and strive to provide excellent continuity of care, we are open six days a week and have access to 24-hour emergency care. For your added convenience, there’s free parking for clients at our surgeries.
Becky joined the team here at Buchanan Veterinary Group in November 2018 as a receptionist and patient care assistant. She loves working on the front desk meeting new people and their pets. Becky has two guinea pigs called Gizmo and Bertie and would love to train to become a veterinary nurse in the future. Outside of work she enjoys the great outdoors and long walks in the countryside.
Karen is the senior receptionist at our head office in Monton. She has worked for Buchanan Veterinary Group since 2014 but has been with the company since 1992. She enjoys working on reception as it gives her the opportunity to meet lots of different people and their pets. Karen can always be relied upon to assist team members and clients by utilising the knowledge and experience she has gained over the years. Outside of work, Karen enjoys spending time with her family and going out for meals.
Sue has worked as a receptionist for Buchanan Veterinary Group since October 1986. She really enjoys her job; her role is never boring and no two days are the same. We hope Sue will continue to enjoy her role as her experience and client knowledge is second to none. Sue lives locally and often sees clients out and about when she is shopping. She is married, has two grown up sons, two cats and two dogs.
Sue has worked for Buchanan Veterinary Group since 1998 and has performed various roles within the company. Sue started on reception and then progressed to an administrative role at our head office.
