Vets4Pets Solihull

Meet the Solihull vet team


Ian Griffiths BVM&S MRCVS

Practice Owner and Veterinary Surgeon 

I am originally from Chester and qualified as a Veterinary Surgeon at the University of Edinburgh in 2010. Following graduation, my first job was at a small animal practice in Wolverhampton which gave me experience in all aspects of veterinary care and ultimately I became responsible for the majority of surgical cases. In addition, I worked with the local greyhound track providing the veterinary care and emergency treatment for the racing dogs and the local retired greyhound trust, which is something I have a passion for.

With the expansion of the Pets at Home the opportunity then arose to become a Joint Venture Partner at Vets4Pets in Solihull. Whilst awaiting the opening of our new Solihull branch I worked for several local Vet4Pets practices providing experienced locum cover.

The most rewarding aspects of being a vet is helping clients on a daily basis and building long term relationships with pets and their owners. I have a keen interest in surgery (particularly orthopaedics) and I am currently finalising further qualifications in surgery.

I live with my girlfriend Rachel and our thoroughly odd cat Chester in Birmingham.  I am a keen hockey player and I continue to play for Wolverhampton and Tettenhall whenever possible.

Kerri Walker

Head Veterinary Nurse

I started nursing in 2014 as an ANA, I moved to Vets4pets Solihull as I felt I would be able to be involved in a more varied case load. I am very nearly close to qualifying with only my practical's in December left to do. I also have an interest in canine and feline behaviour in which I hope to do a further qualification in.
I have two lovely scruffy dogs, Dotty a Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen and Hugo a lively terrier X. I recently acquired a guinea pigs Harvey, who was meant to be temporary house guests but never left as he was too adorable.
Since I have been here I have gained a wealth of experience with small furries and non-routine procedures. I enjoy working at Vets4pets Solihull as we work well as a team.

April Baugh

Veterinary Care Assistant

I started off my journey into the veterinary world as a receptionist, I’ve always been very passionate about animal care and welfare and have volunteered with several rescue centres working with cats, dogs and even hedgehogs. I’ve grown up with a wide range of pets and would always be the first to volunteer to look after school pets. I have recently taken on a stray cat called Mustang. With this experience and my love for all animals, I feel veterinary nursing is the perfect role for me. I am working towards my veterinary nursing qualifications and gaining experience and knowledge in my role as a VCA. The team are supportive and have helped me feel comfortable and confident in all my roles here.

Kizzy Barber


I am a full time receptionist here at Vets4Pets and I'm proud to be part of such an amazing team. 

I love all animals as I have a Shih Tzu, Nelly and a cat, Harry. 

I have always wanted work with animals, working in retail and beauty therapy has never been right for me. 

I hope to meet you and your pets very soon and welcome you to our practice. 


Libby Biddulph


I am a gap year student, working at Solihull Vets4Pets part time as receptionist, planning on going to vet school in September. Working here has been a fantastic opportunity, for not only improving my customer service skills but to gain valuable experience in the veterinary profession.

When I am not working I am looking after my rescue dog Charlie, a cheeky Patterdale terrier, and my Irish Sports Horse called River. So a lot of my time is spent around animals and I wouldn’t have it any other way!


Catherine Wolkowicz

Practice Manager 


My main passion within this profession has always been for patient and client care. I started at Vets4Pets Solihull at the start of 2018, where I now have the chance to really give the best care to clients as well as their pets.

I currently have 5 cats, all but one are hand reared rescues that came to my place of work. You will see me around the practice, so I look forward to meeting you and your pets!
