Meet Our Team
Dr Michelle Moggridge – MA VetMB GPCertSAS MRCVS Head Veterinary Surgeon and Practice Owner
I qualified from Cambridge University in 1994, and have since worked in mixed practice and referral centres before coming to join Burghley Veterinary Centre in 2004. I took over the practice in 2006.
What I love about the practice is pushing the boundaries and investing in all the latest technology and newest clinical and technological advances to ensure we provide the very best and latest standards of medicine and care for all our lovely patients. I particularly enjoy surgery, and completed my GP certificate in small animal surgery from 2007-2009.
I have a strong focus on pain management and anaesthesia, and to the end brought the therapeutic K-Laser to the practice in 2016, being the first in the locality to have such an effective and non-invasive complementary therapy.
I also trained in Veterinary Acupuncture, completing my certificate in 2001. I have been successfully practicing Acupuncture ever since, and have enjoyed utilising acupuncture as part of my multi modal approach to pain management. It is incredibly rewarding to see the improvements in patients QOL which can be provided using acupuncture alongside other therapies.
Having a very inquisitive mind, I also enjoy getting involved in more complex medical cases, and enjoy conferring with our colleagues at referral practices to advance my own knowledge and implement new techniques and treatments in first opinion practice.
I have a variety of pets living with me at home, including several dogs ranging in size from a Chihuahua to a Great Dane, several cats, some quail, guinea foul and 6 chickens, plus our much loved Rooster Zebedee. All of my cats and dogs have chosen me as their owner, and have come to me through our work with Three Counties Dog Rescue!
Dr Adam Ashton BVSc MRCVS – Veterinary Surgeon
I joined Burghley Veterinary Centre in 2021 after many years in General Practice in the local area, and have enjoyed getting to know all our lovely clients and their pets here in Stamford. My professional interests are wide ranging, but I particularly enjoy Opthalmology and surgery.
In my leisure time I have a variety of interests and hobbies including, but not limited to, furniture making, pottery, outdoor activities such as walking (with and without our dog!), cycling and kayaking. My family and I have a Labrador, a cat and several chickens at home.

Charlotte Potts – Lead Registered Veterinary Nurse
I have worked at the Burghley Veterinary Centre since 2019. After going through my training here I am now a qualified Registered Veterinary Nurse.
My particular passions are anaesthesia and surgical nursing, pain management, and feline friendly nursing. I have two cats at home called Arwen and Sushi, who rule the house! I love to keep active, and enjoy exploring new places in my free time.
I am excited to meet you and your lovely pets through our Nurse Clinics!
I have worked in the industry for 13 years after getting my first job in a veterinary practice at 17 years old. I have been a qualified nurse now for 9 years and I love all aspects of the role.
I now work part time as I have 3 young children at home as well as my two little chihuahuas to look after. I have a huge passion for horses and horse riding so if I have any spare time then this is what I love to do!
I have worked at the Burghley Veterinary Centre since October 2022 and I look after Credit Control and Administration.
I have three cats named Bob, Belle and Frank. I also have Echo an African Grey parrot! I love working at Burghley Veterinary Centre because it is how vets used to be run in the good old days, independent, great team, hard working and focussed on the care and well being of the pets that we see!
Lauren Allen – Student Veterinary Nurse
I came to Burghley Veterinary Centre after being a qualified dental nurse for 6 years, I loved dental nursing but I have always wanted to work with animals.
In my free time, I am with my 2 dogs – my Alaskan malamute who I’ve had from a puppy and my German Shepherd X Akita who I rehomed from Cyprus! I also have a giant house rabbit who has his own bedroom! I am looking forward to completing my college course, becoming a registered veterinary nurse and looking after all our patients.
Growing up I have always been around animals and that is where my love for animals started! After graduating with a degree in animal science I decided to begin my career in the veterinary world, where I am hoping to train to become a Registered Veterinary Nurse.
Of course as an animal love I also have a pet of my own my cat Georgie!
I have a daughter who is currently at university, but the house is not quiet without her as I have two young Chocolate Cockapoos at home, who love playing and keep me very busy!
In my leisure time, I love to curl up with a good book, or take a nice relaxing walk. I enjoy meeting and helping our clients.
I live in Stamford with my husband, two teenage daughters and our dog, Millie. In my spare time, I enjoy walking Millie, swimming, socialising with friends and travelling. I enjoy meeting and greeting all our clients, and especially our patients.
