Practice Manager/Veterinary Care Assistant
Hi, I'm Devan and I'm the practice manager and veterinary care assistant at Vets4Pets Merthyr Tydfil. I have had a love of animals from a very young age & started my career in a Veterinary practice when I was 14 so nearly 10 years ago! I started at the vets on a two week work experience for school and left with an Animal Nursing Qualification 9 years later. I am very passionate about animals and I am very excited to be working at Vets4Pets.
I have worked with Becky and Abbie before in my previous practice so we are a close team & absolutely love working together!
I have a gorgeous 5 year old Welsh Collie called Dougie who is my pride & joy. He is a qualified PAT dog, absolutely loves children & comes to work with me everyday so you can usually find him behind the reception desk curled up in his bed. At home I have two rescue cats Dusty & Diego. Dusty was a feral Cats Protection kitten who I healed back to health after having his head stuck in a liquid bin for 4 days, hence the name Dusty-bin! Diego was dumped at a local reservoir at 4 weeks of age with a broken leg, luckily a dog walker found him & brought him to the vets where I fell in love with him. I also have a 2 year old Syrian hamster called Rue.
In my spare time I enjoy taking Dougie on long walks, going to the cinema, reading & looking after my in-laws pets which include welsh cobs, Shetland ponies, chickens, 4 dogs & 2 cats. At the moment I am currently planning my wedding which is booked for June 2017.
I look forward to meeting you all & your pets!
