Dr Anita Bhanja GPCert(Derm) CHPV B.Vet. Med. MRCVS qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 1994 and has lived and worked in Cheshire for over 20 years. Anita is a member of the International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care and the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management.

Anita has been working as a mobile veterinarian for over 10 years now following on from her Grappenhall practice and day to day sees the need for home care for elderly pets. Eternal Paws has been created, therefore, to provide everything you and your pet need as he or she grows older. It goes without saying that your pet will receive first class and compassionate medical care but also additional services, such  as holistic care in the form of Reiki and energy healing and access to pet sitters, home help or someone to talk to about illness, old age and what comes next. Anita can also advise on making your home more friendly for your ageing companion.

In October 2019 Eternal Paws also opened a Pet Crematorium and Funeral Lodge to allow pets the that have passed to be taken straight there either by Anita or by their owner: avoiding the need to be kept at a vets until a scheduled collection and so providing a more dignified final journey and return of ashes the next day. In May 2023 the practice acquired a Class IV laser for treating pain and degenerative myelopathy

Anita has five dogs and a snake. She is no stranger to the personal trauma of a disabled or ill pet or indeed to the sadness and heartache of losing a pet, and the grief this brings. She lost her original team of Elliot and Coco, her first dogs and her little cat, Deva through old age some years ago. Red, her 7 month old puppy, passed after a tragic accident in October 2019, Daisy her beautiful Doberman in July 2021 and in July 2023 her precious cat Ludo was lost to cancer – all of them so dearly loved and shaping her practice through the lessons they taught her and the joy they brought.

Melanie Wharton, a registered Veterinary Nurse for 23 years works alongside Anita . She has a passion for palliative and end of life care and feels it an honour to be there for pets and their owners at a time when they need us most, helping them pass over with the love, dignity and respect they deserve in a calm and peaceful way. Melanie has had the pleasure of working with small animals and horses and qualified as a Canine Hydrotherapist in 2020. She also takes the lead in providing the Laser Therapy at Eternal Paws. Melanie’s menagerie includes 3 dogs, fish, a tarantula and a giant snail
