Dr Dominika Trelinska DVM PhD MRCVS Senior Veterinary Surgeon

I studied for my Veterinary degree and graduated in 1999, after which I continued my studies to complete my doctoral degree and a postgraduate diploma. I then went out into general practice with both small and large animals, later focusing only on Companion Animal Practice. After spending 4 productive years as a Senior Veterinary Surgeon at a small animal practice, I took the opportunity to work in different practices as a locum before being offered a position as a sole charge veterinarian at a small animal veterinary Practice in East London where I was to stay 4 years.

Following on from this and looking for a new challenge, I joined the team at Alcombe Veterinary Surgery in the lovely Osterley area of West London.

I enjoy General Companion Animal Practice and also have a special interest in feline medicine and dermatology.

My own pets have included my super intelligent German Shepherd, named Dara, whom I had the privilege of owning for 16 years. And I now live with a very independent cat, Mr James Jones who came into my care after being rescued by RSPCA as a cruelty case.

Outside of work I like to spend my leisure time dancing, cycling, reading, and travelling.

Laura Cooper Registered Veterinary Nurse

My name is Laura and I’m a Registered Veterinary Nurse in New Zealand. I moved to the UK from New Zealand in March 2018 and joined the Alcombe Osterley team in January 2019.

I qualified the Diploma in Veterinary Nursing in 2013 and furthered my studies by completing the Certificate in Large Animal Technology in 2014. Since then I have worked at small branch clinics, large referral centres, orthopaedic centres and emergency after hours care.

There are many aspects of my job that I love including assisting in surgery, anaesthetic monitoring, teaching veterinary nurse students and performing nurse consults such as canine behaviour, food diets etc.

I moved to the UK to gain more experience in my profession and travel Europe. Due to traveling I sadly don’t own any animals. Since arriving in the UK I have travelled many different countries and met many people that have quickly became friends.

In my spare time I love continuing my education, reading, exploring/traveling around London and Europe and spending time with friends.

Kelly Thomas Receptionist

Hi I’m Kelly; I started working at Alcombe Osterley in September 2017.

Before this I was working in head office for a bank but always wanted to be away from the computer screen and work with animals. After being made redundant this year it seemed the perfect opportunity to have a career change and finally pursue a career working with animals.

I really enjoy working at Alcombe as the team are always very friendly and helpful and also the clients are really lovely and I am enjoying getting to know each client and their animals personally.

At home I have a cat called Bentley who is my fur baby, very spoilt and very much loved & I have recently adopted a kitten called Buzz who we fell in love with instantly! My family call me the crazy cat lady as I really am cat mad!

I also enjoy helping out with fostering any kittens that come into the practice that need a little helping hand and am always happy to take them home with me for weekends to give as much love and cuddles as possible.

I hope to become a Veterinary nurse in the future.

My main hobbies are Photography, Gym and of course, Shopping!
