Dr. Joanne Barker

Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

Hi, I'm Jo Barker, Joint Venture Partner at Catterick Vets4Pets.

I qualified from the Royal (Dick) Veterinary College, University of Edinburgh in 1999. I spent my early years as a vet in mixed practice in Stokesley, a small market town in North Yorkshire where I gained masses of experience in all aspects of veterinary medicine and surgery, from calving cows to operating on chinchillas! I moved into full time small animal work four years ago, and this allowed me to pursue my interests in ultrasonography and small animal cardiology.

At home my family pets are a beautiful cat and two little guinea pigs. Eventually I would love to get a border terrier to add to the family. 

Outside work I like to cook Italian food. I love gardening and try to grow veg that I can use in my favourite recipes. I also enjoy going to the cinema, reading the odd novel, and I have occasionally been seen on my bike! 

I decided to open Vets4Pets Catterick because I felt that my experience had given me the confidence to strike out on my own, and because I felt that I could provide the people of Catterick with the kind of practice they really need and deserve. It is hugely important to me that we have a "whole family" approach to caring for our pets. I love to engage with children and help them to care for their pets in a responsible way. I have a son myself and my family are my world. As a client you can rest assured that my team and I will treat your pet exactly as we would treat our own! My new team at Catterick are all so motivated to provide exceptional quality veterinary care, and I am so proud to work with all of them.

Veterinary surgeon

I graduated from Edinburgh in 1999 along with Joanne Barker. I worked in a busy mixed practice in a close rural community for 13 years, gaining lots of experience and making lots of good friends, but I found that small animal practice, especially surgery, was where my interests lie. I have an elderly dog called Ben, Jade the cat and 2 Exmoor ponies, all of whom have been my faithful companions through my years of practice. I look forward to working in this friendly practice and making new friends. Outside of work, I enjoy reading and a variety of outdoor activities including walking, cycling and riding.

After serving in the British Army for 23 years I decided that I would far rather work with animals then people! Fortunately the team at Catterick Vets4Pets took a chance on me and allowed me to learn on the job. I am working alongside a great team of professionals here and you will meet me when you come to the counter. Please be patient with me and stay for a chat.

Outside of work I enjoy most sports however I mainly spectate rather than participate since I hit my 40's. I still do a lot of running however, and my wife and I enjoy walking to Richmond for a meal and social drinks.

We are the very proud companions of an extremely handsome cat called Duncan.

I have lived in Catterick Garrison for 14 years. I have two lovely cats, Paco, a Maine Coon and Lucy, a domestic shorthair. I worked in the veterinary field years ago and have decided to come back. I absolutely love animals. Outside of work my main interest is raising money for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

I qualified as an RVN in 2016, training at a veterinary hospital in Lincoln before moving here to Catterick Garrison with my partner in the forces. I have a particular interest in animal behaviour, having a BSc in the subject and am happy to offer related advice where I can. I am also passionate about feline nursing; you will find me championing our cat-friendly practice status and have plans to undergo an advanced feline nursing course next year. But I'm still a dog-lover too! 

Outside of work I enjoy taking part in amateur dramatics and am also a bit of a girl gamer and sci-fi geek! I live with my partner Conor and my temperamental yet gorgeous tabby cat Goku.

Student Veterinary Nurse

I have recently started my two year course to become a Veterinary Nurse. I am keen on all aspects of nursing and especially like working with dogs. At home I have two cocker spaniels called Rosie and Sophie, and they keep me busy when I'm not working. I really hope my enthusiasm and passion for the job comes across in the way I care for all my little patients.
