In 2010, I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College, London, as Veterinary Surgeon after a life long dream that began as a child on my family’s dairy farm.

I had always wanted to work with cows, but soon after graduation I settled into domestic animal practice and found my love for Internal Medicine. 

Being a home bird (quite literally), I have always lived in and worked around south Wales, but in 2016 during a locumming period I met Helen. 

After immediately hitting it off, and realising that our standards of care, ethics and lifelong plans were the same - we became firm friends and Helen offered me a job at Cardiff Bay as Clinical Director.

In July, 2017, I became a Joint Venture Partner and here we are today.

In October 2016 I completed my Post Graduate Certificate in Small Animal Medicine equipping me with the extra knowledge I craved for my patients.

I am extremely proud of our practice and our team, our standards of care and the high levels of services that we offer.

I graduated from Nottingham University in July 2018 and started at Cardiff Bay soon afterwards.

Originally from Berkshire, I decided to move to Wales as I love the Brecon Beacons, enjoy having city and country life so close together and Sam and Helen were very persuasive.

My interests lie in medicine and diagnostic imaging/cardiology and I am currently performing the heart scans and seeing the heart cases at Cardiff Bay after receiving some training from top specialists in the cardiology field.

I also really enjoy meeting clients, chatting to them and hearing their life stories – as well as meeting their gorgeous pets!

In the future, I would like to further my studies and complete a post graduate certificate in medicine or imaging.

Read Miss Helen Navran bio

I have nursed for over 20 years.

I trained in the charity Blue Cross Merton in London where I credit my skillset base and ethics.  

My profession plays a hugely important role in an animals welfare and as a nurse I feel that responsibility every single day.

During my career I’ve worked in many practices, dabbled in management and in 2016 had the opportunity to become a joint venture partner.

I'm proud that only a handful of nurses have achieved this.

In 2018 I was honoured to receive the BSAVA Bruce Vivash award for outstanding contributions to the advancement of small animal veterinary nursing.

I strive to inspire my team each day to provide the best gold standard care for our patients which I wholeheartedly believe we offer each and every day.

Hi I’m Emmajayne,

I qualified in 2015 after obtaining a degree from Hartpury College University.

I have worked in Cardiff Bay Vets4Pets since 2012 and since qualifying, I have gained a certificate in Animal Behaviour - so I’m your girl if your fury family members are feeling misunderstood (I have to be specific as wives will ask about their husbands and fortunately I have no experience in that area..) In my spare time I like to keep active with cycling, running and swimming, and taking my two dogs Lilly and Stanley for long walks. I also enjoy the usual social activities but we don’t want the list too long.

I've been with V4P for two year but have worked at Veterinary surgeries for 18+ years. I enjoy meeting clients and their furry family members. In my spare time I enjoy reading, crafting and TV and spend a lot of time with my two ragdoll cats.

Vets4Pets Cardiff Bay was taken over by Helen in 2016 and was later joined by Sam in July 2017. We are proud to deliver an exceptional quality service to both client and pet, that is both value for money and of an incredible standard.

We boast a multitude of in house facilities, including K Laser treatment, in house diagnostics (including radiography, in house laboratory, ultrasonography, echocardiography and roaming CT), bronchoscopy, separate cat/exotic and dog wards and complimentary therapies such as acupuncture and medical leech treatment.This is all cutting edge equipment to make sure your pet gets the best in diagnostics and care, right here in Cardiff.

Our staff are highly trained and we are proud to have both vets and nurses that have special interests in areas such as Medicine, Soft Tissue and Orthopaedic Surgery, Animal Behaviour and Pet Nutrition. As such, we very rarely refer to external specialties and many complex cases can be handled in-house.

We work with many different insurance companies and can offer direct insurance claims* without any administration fees – preventing the need for you as a client to pay out large bills and waiting for reimbursement.

Being within a Pets at Home store, we are lucky to also have a large on-site Car Park and owners have the benefit of buying their pet a ‘well done’ treat on the way home, or being a one-stop shop for pet foods and services that cannot be found in other local practices. We are also open 7 days a week, late evenings and weekends.
