    Mariana Alvarez BVM&S MRCVS Managing Director

    Lead Veterinary Surgeon

    I’m originally from Spain, where I completed my veterinary studies in 2015. Upon relocating to the North East of England, I found myself captivated by the region's charm and warm hospitality. I joined the Vets on the Meowve family in 2020. I was fascinated by the nature of their mobile service, and I came to the realisation that this was the way in which I wanted to deliver my services to pets and to our community, so I set up a branch in Teesside. I find immense fulfilment in delivering veterinary services to pets in their homes as it creates a more relaxed environment and allows for tailored and comprehensive care without time constraints. I love witnessing the role that pets have within families and I’m happy that I can contribute to their wellbeing, helping to preserve that incredible bond between animals and humans. In my personal life, I share my home with Puck, a cheeky rescue cat who lightens up my days. I’m looking forward to meeting you all!

    Gabby Taylor

    Practice Manager / Registered Veterinary Nurse

    I have worked in veterinary practice for the past 20 years and qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2008. Since qualifying, I worked as the Head Veterinary Nurse in several veterinary practices in the North East before joining the Vets on the Meowve family in July 2023. I have a special interest and post graduate certificate in anaesthesia and pain management and love nothing better than working together with our vets to ensure that your pets are as pain-free as possible during and after their operations. Joining Vets on the Meowve has given me an amazing opportunity to develop such meaningful relationships with our families and their pets. I love that we are able to take our time when coming to see you and your pets in your own homes. This way of working has huge advantages in allowing us to perform thorough examinations at your pets own pace and talk through all of your options and decision making together, making it an altogether less stressful experience. Outside of work, I love walking in nature, dancing and spending time with my very cheeky Persian cat Winston.

    Sarah Jane Mawson

    Registered Veterinary Nurse

    I have been working in practice for 13 years now, starting when I was a student nurse right up to being Head nurse. My nursing role now at Vets on the Meowve is different to anything I have done before, but I love it! I am passionate about making the patient less stressed during their vet visit, which is much easier to achieve in a mobile setting as we are coming to see them in their own environment. I also enjoy the client care aspect of the job as we see a lot of owners who find it difficult to get to a static practice. I feel like we get to know our pet families on a closer basis, as we can take more time in our consultations. This is another reason I particularly enjoy our nurse days, where I can spend more time one on one with our owners and their pets. Job satisfaction is important to me and working at Vets on the Meowve allows me to drive home knowing I have done something to help our owners and their precious pets. In my spare time I enjoy riding my horse Max, who is 22 years young, and walking my two rescue lurchers Molly who is 10 and Ralph who is 13 - they all keep me on my toes!

    Michelle Rose-McCaffrey

    Customer Care Team

    I have worked in various different veterinary practices and referral hospitals around the North East since 2016, working as a receptionist and Auxiliary Nurse. My passion to help pets lead a pain free life, and support their journey of better movement and mobility then led me to train to become a small animal hydrotherapist and laser specialist. I joined the Vets on the Meowve Team in September 2023 as part of the Customer Care Team, so I will mostly be based in the office answering all of your enquiries, organising our diary and getting to know you and your wonderful pets so that we can provide you with our personalised service. I love knowing that we are supporting owners and their pets at home in a stress-free environment. Outside of work, I spend my time with my two wonderful grandchildren and look after my two cavaliers Poppy and Izzy, my frug (Frenchie x Pug) Ivy and my two cats Thor and Rocket.
