Barry Vets4Pets Sylvia Annies

Sylvia Annies MRCVS

Owner and Veterinary Surgeon      

I graduated 25 years ago in Hannover, Germany and worked in several small animal practices before moving to Cardiff with my husband in 1994. We currently live in Barry with our son and two cats; Ivy and Ceri.

I enjoy all aspects of small animal practice but have a particular interest in feline medicine, which I'm looking to further intensify in the future. My patients are mostly dogs, cats and rabbits; I'm also experienced with rats, hamsters, fish, cage birds and exotics.

Dorian Simu

Veterinary Surgeon            

I graduated in 2015 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania and since then I have worked in different small animal practices throughout England and South Wales before I settled in Barry with my fiancé, which we enjoy a lot. We have 2 dogs back in Romania: Max, a Hungarian Vizsla and Dexter, a Miniature Schnauzer which currently live with our parents. Since we moved to Barry we've adopted Ned who is very spoilt 2 year old domestic medium haired cat, which was roaming the streets of Barry. I enjoy everything that comes with small animal practice work, but I do have a keen interest in small animal cardiology, an area in which I would like to further intensify my studies. In my spare time, I enjoy exploring the nice places around the area as everything is still quite new for me.

Nicole Bates


Registered Veterinary Nurse

I graduated from The Royal Veterinary  College in 2013 with a degree in Veterinary Nursing and since then have  been working in small animal practice in South Wales.

I love everything about my job from providing advice and preventive healthcare, to assisting the vet in surgery. I have a keen interest in nutrition and nurse clinics.

In my spare time I enjoy keeping fit and often foster orphaned animals.  I currently have two indoor cats; Myrtle Elizabeth & Eugene Charles who are forever fosters.

I'm from Cardiff and have been nursing since 2010. I have always wanted to work with animals from a very young age. 

I have two rescue dogs, Rosie and Sally. Any spare time I have is spent on long walks with my dogs. I love my job and am very passionate about providing our patients and clients with the best possible care.

Hi I'm Jade. I'm one of the Receptionists here at Vets4Pets Barry.

I have previously worked as a Groom at a riding stables and volunteered at a rescue and rehabilitation centre alongside studying for my Degree.

During my gap year I had the opportunity to travel the world, whilst I was travelling I worked at a Kennels in the outback of Australia, which was an amazing experience!

I grew up with lots of animals and at the moment live with two cats, three chickens and a black Labrador called Ella. In my spare time I like to go on long walks with Ella, she loves the beach and a good swim! I also like to horse ride and hopefully will be getting my own in the near future.

I look forward to welcoming you and your pets to our new practice.
