Petra Meredith-Smythe
Vet Nurse


I studied Ecology and Agriculture at Lyceum of Natural Sciences in the Czech Republic. After passing my Maturita exams (A Levels), I moved to Spain to live with my now-husband. A year later, we moved to the UK where I worked as an au-pair before I decided to follow my dream to work with animals. In 2012 I started working as a Patient Care Assistant in a busy 24 hour emergency hospital in SW London and in 2016 I became a Registered Veterinary Nurse. I decided to develop my career by gaining new experience elsewhere, which is how came across Willett House Vets. I am currently enjoying the new environment and working as a qualified nurse! In my spare time I enjoy fitness, travelling and horse riding.


Back at home I have a bouncy cross breed dog called Archie who lives with my family. I also have a Haflinger gelding called Zlatko, an old friend from my former showjumping years. Here in the UK we are planning to get a rescue cat in the future.

Continued Professional Development

I have yet to undertake CPD but I have an interest in emergency and critical care.
