Gudrun Janssen CertVOphthal MRCVS

Owner & Veterinary Surgeon. 
Advanced Practitioner in Veterinary Ophthalmology

I studied veterinary medicine in Hannover, Germany and in Bern, Switzerland and graduated in 1998. After finishing my doctoral thesis in Virology/Immunology at the University of Berne, I moved to the UK in 1999.

I've worked in several hospital based veterinary practices in the South East of England. In 2009 I moved with my family to North Wales, where I have worked in a local small animal practice.

I have a strong interest in Veterinary Ophthalmology, obtained my RVC Certificate in Veterinary Ophthalmology in 2011, and I've worked at Rutland House Referrals, St. Helen's, Liverpool, as a referral ophthalmologist.

In my spare time I enjoy family life with my partner, two children, two cats Llio and Bennie and my two guinea pigs, Rossie and Pedro.

I'm also trying to master the Welsh language.

I qualified as a Veterinary Surgeon in 2013 in Vila Real, in Portugal. For the last 2.5 years I have been working in a small animal practice in Portugal before moving to Wales in 2016. 

In my spare time I like cooking, travelling and everything related to cinema. I enjoy taking long walks in the beautiful country of Wales, close to sea and mountains.

Vicky Yates RVN

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 1996 and worked for more than 20 years in a small animal veterinary practice in South Manchester where I took pride in building up good and lasting relationships with clients and their pets over the years.

Apart from all aspects of veterinary nursing, I also enjoyed getting involved in the training of new veterinary nurses and new members of staff. I take a special interest in weight management and care of senior pets.

I moved to North Wales in 2015 and I live with my terrier Griff and my cat Lara. I am enjoying the perks of country life.

Victoria Hillier

Head Receptionist

I was born and grew up in Windsor, Berkshire and I moved to North Wales in 2014. I have always had an interest in animals and their welfare and for two years I volunteered for a swan rescue charity in Eton which developed my passion for wild birds, in particular Owls and Swans.

I very much enjoy my role as a receptionist and although it can be challenging at times, I am broadening my knowledge of veterinary care and treatment day by day and will acquire my Veterinary Care Assistant Diploma in 2017.

In my spare time I enjoy walking and exploring the country and its hidden gems. I have a cat called Ollie, a couple of small furries and goldfish.

I am the newest member of the team, joining in February 2017, having spent 20 years working in travel and jetting around the world a few times! I have always had a passion for animals, especially dogs and I am now a proud owner of a very chilled shar-pei called Brutus.


In my spare time (apart from still jetting off whenever I can) I’m a bit of a gym bunny and I completed the London Marathon in April 2017.

I joined the team in February 2017 having previously worked in the hotel industry as a receptionist. I have always had a passion for animals, I grew up with three dogs and 2 cats as well as bunnies when I was very young! I love my job here at vets4pets, every day is different and the occasional cuddle from kittens and puppies is the best part!


I have a crazy 9 month old kitten called Oliver, a beautiful little boy named Tyler and a wonderful fiancé named Alick. In my spare time I mainly spend time with my family, we love shopping trips, going out for walks and having lazy film nights. We hope to get a dog very soon, although we can’t agree on which breed!
