At Pet Circle
History: Dr Jacqui joined the Pet Circle veterinary team in 2020. She finds it such a rewarding experience as it allows veterinarians the unique opportunity to really spend the time communicating with owners to help them care for their pets in the best way possible. Dr Jacqui is available to answer your pet questions via our Vet Pet Plan service and also writes informative pet care content for our website. Dr Jacqui enjoys the balance between working at Pet Circle and also working hands-on in clinic so she still gets some cuddles from her patients!

Jacqui's Top Recommended Products
"I can't recommend Feliway enough as it has helped improve the welfare of so many of my feline patients! Feliway is a synthetic form of the natural feline facial pheromone which cats use to mark an area as 'safe', providing them with a sense of security and helping to reduce anxiety."
"My indoor cat absolutely loves this window bed! It allows him to relax in the sun and has become part of his daily routine now. It's ideal for the cat that has everything!"
"Cats are often more subtle in displaying signs of arthritis compared to dogs, so we can't forget that arthritis can affect them too! Green Lipped Mussel helps to reduce inflammation and pain in the joints, and these capsules can even be easily opened and sprinkled onto food for the fussier felines."
"Providing a cat friendly home for your feline friend is so important, and this combination scratcher certainly helps to improve environmental enrichment. It can be tailored to your cat's requests as it can be used either horizontally or mounted vertically!"
