Veterinary Surgeons

Helder, vet at MiNightVet Trowbridge

Helder Valente

Veterinary Surgeon

Helder qualified as veterinary surgeon from the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro in January 2014, in Portugal. Prior to his graduation, Helder carried out eight months of placements in Portugal and Spain. Once qualified, he worked for two years in mixed practice followed by a further two years in small animal practice. He arrived in the UK at the beginning of 2018.

Helder has a special interest in emergency and critical care, internal medicine and diagnostic imaging. Back in Portugal he has a number of farm animals who are looked after by his big dog, Trufa. Outside work, Helder enjoys exploring the outdoors, taking in the wildlife and landscapes. Spending time with his family and friends over dinner is also an essential past time!

Leo, vet at MiNightVet Trowbridge

Leo Leiras

Veterinary Surgeon

Leo joined the HHG MiNightVet team in November 2018. He graduated in 2014 from the Universidade de Évora in Portugal and after graduating got his first job in a veterinary teaching hospital in Coimbra, Portugal. In December 2016 he decided to embrace the challenge of moving to the UK and spent two years working at a busy veterinary hospital in Bristol doing first opinion and out of hours. Leo is now very excited to be starting the third chapter of his life with us as a night vet. His areas of interest are internal medicine, ultrasound and emergency and critical care.

In his free time Leo loves to travel to new places. He also enjoys playing football with friends and spending time with his partner and two playful cats, Fred and Elsa.

Veterinary Nurses

Marie, senior nurse at MiNightVet Trowbridge

Marie Pearce

Senior Registered Veterinary Nurse

Marie originally joined the HHG team in November 2010 as a receptionist at the Westbury branch. She is now a registered veterinary nurse and works nights in our Trowbridge branch, taking care of the inpatients and any emergencies that arrive overnight. Marie particularly enjoys getting to know the patients while they are in for long periods, making their time away from home as comfortable and stress free as possible. She will be studying for her certificate in emergency and critical care in 2019.

Away from work Marie can often be found running around local forests with her dogs, or maybe enjoying the odd race with them in either canicross or bikejor. She is also a keen cyclist and likes to get out in the countryside for long rides to relax.
