Nikki Bentley
Nikki Bentley BSc BVetMed MRCVS Clinical Director

Nikki graduated in 2007 from the RVC in London and promptly headed to the wild woolly hills of North Wales, which she called home for three years. Here she gained an invaluable grounding in dairy, beef, sheep and small animal work while still seeing the odd welsh mountain pony. After locuming around the UK in mixed and emergency practices and time abroad, volunteering as a vet for the Tibet Charity and working in a busy New Zealand small animal hospital, Nikki joined Pilgrims in July 2012.

Her main interests are soft tissue surgery and farm reproduction and she enjoys good food and wine, preferably after a muddy walk in the forest with her spaniel.

Nikki became a partner of Pilgrims in 2013 and heads up the small animal side of the practice. She has an in depth knowledge of both medicine and surgery as well as overseeing much of the admin and day-to-day management of the practice.

Nikki is ideal to see if you want an honest and objective opinion about a complicated medicine case with your dog or cat. She is also the best person to speak to regarding any account query, invoice, instalment plan, insurance enquiry or complaint. With a superb all round competence in handling anything Pilgrims related, the only thing Nikki can’t do is edit this page of the website.
