We are open for essential care only

In line with government guidelines, we are only offering medically essential appointments, so please contact the practice team before travelling. Our opening hours may also vary, so please monitor our webpage to keep up to date with the latest information.

We are taking steps to help keep you and our colleagues safe:

  • If you do need to visit, we ask that only one person per pet comes along, to help reduce the number of people in the waiting area at any one time.
  • Social distancing is crucial at this time. When arriving, you may be required to call ahead and wait to be invited in by a member of our team. You will be informed if this is necessary when you call us to make your appointment.
  • Once inside the practice, we ask that you please respect a two metre distance from our colleagues and other clients.
  • We are only accepting card payments to help minimise contact between you and our colleagues.
  • If you can’t visit the practice and are concerned about your pet’s health, please contact us to discuss available options.

We will continue to share regular updates here and on our Facebook page. We thank you for your patience at this time.

I qualified as a veterinary surgeon from the Royal Vet College, London in 2002. I have always been surrounded by pets, currently Missy a black lab and Janice the Jack Russell. I aim to treat all pets as if they were my own. in 2001 I passed the RCVS certificate in small animal surgery (CertSAS) . I am one of few vets in South Wales who hold this qualification and I am able to perform complex surgeries here in Cardiff for my own patients and for pets referred to me from other practices. I have always been a keen sportsman, in my earlier days I played professional rugby for Leicester Tigers, I currently play league basketball for the Caerphilly Salamanders.

I graduated at the top of my year from The Royal Veterinary College, London in 2004. Since graduation I have kept up my studies as I aim to provide the best possible care to the pets that I treat. I have completed both the ESVP Certificate in feline medicine, and the RCVS Certificate in Small Animal Medicine; the latter being a qualification very few vets in South Wales have. I am particularly passionate about helping pets with medical conditions such as bowel disease, kidney failure and heart and lung disease. I previously worked in a large Midlands practice seeing pets with these conditions referred to me from other vets. Even though many of these conditions cannot be cured, I strongly believe that in the right hands we can provide these patients with the best quality of life for as long as possible. Here at Llanrumney Vets4Pets we like to work with owners as a team, giving you all the options available for you and your beloved pets.

I joined Llanrumney Vets4Pets in September 2017 and instantly felt welcomed by all the members of my team and the owners of our lovely patients. I have been working as a vet in Cardiff and the South Wales area for 10 years now and I have developed a strong link with many patients and their owners, becoming their family vet.

I strive to continue to develop my professional skills and all my knowledge is there to make your precious family members healthy and hence happy. I enjoy imaging and internal medicine cases but most of all I am keen to investigate and follow up any challenging cases that the new day brings me.

I recently completed the ESVPS Improve qualification in Veterinary Nursing Anaesthesia and Analgesia which allows me to deliver an even higher standard of care to our patients. I also enjoy all other areas of nursing, especially surgical nursing and radiography.

Outside of work I play American football and like to spend time with my own cats Pinky, Perky and Smudge.

Having grown up in Llanrumney I feel very much part of this community. As soon as I joined the team at Llanrumney Vets4Pets I felt like part of the family.

I have lived in Llanrumney all my life and have worked at vets4pets since October 2013. I enjoy every aspect of my role and I always strive to provide the highest level of friendly and approachable client care, with the view that our clients are just as important to us as their furry babies are. I understand just how much your pets mean to you as I am mum to Ralph and Ruby. Ralph and Ruby are both springer spaniels. Ralph is almost 4 years old and Ruby is a very new addition to my family and is just over 3 months old. Outside of work these 2 keep me very busy.

I have always lived locally and I enjoy feeling a part of the community. I have always loved animals and have a great love for dogs in particular.

I have a Cavachon called Gusgus and I have recently rehomed a Shih Tzu named Mabel.

They both keep me busy outside of work and keep me on my toes!

My aim is to provide a friendly, approachable customer service and I look forward to meeting you and giving your fur babies a cuddle!

I began working for Vets4Pets in January 2020 as a Client Care Advisor. I am currently studying a degree in Veterinary Nursing at University of Wales Trinity Saint David and will become a qualified veterinary nurse in 2022.

I have 2 dogs, one Staffordshire bull terrier named Troy and a American bully named Titan, as well as a 12 year old rabbit named Marvin.

My hobbies include going to the gym, socialising with friends and caring for my pets. 

We opened our veterinary surgery on Monday 29th April 2013.
 
We came to Cardiff to offer the best preventative healthcare we could to keep the pets of our local area healthy and happy and to live longer, more fulfilling lives. After nearly 7 years here, we like to think that we have gone a long way to achieving that goal. We strive to give all of our clients and their pets a friendly welcome and to make you feel valued by our team. We strive to deliver excellent customer service and we pride ourselves on being able to achieve the best outcomes for your cherished pets, because we treat them like they are our own.
 
We have recently been awarded the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme Award (for a second time); this is a major achievement and means that our veterinary surgery abides by strict codes of conduct applicable to patient and client care. We have been nominated every year for the PetPlan Practice of the Year award, and have been chosen as one of the “Three Best Rated” vets in Cardiff for two years running - 2018 and 2019. These awards are all due to the hard work and dedication of our team and our loyal clients who are happy to recommend us to their friends and colleagues. Thank you all!
 
Our team of 4 vets, 3 nurses, 1 student nurse and 3 receptionists are all here to provide you and your pet with the best care we can. We are constantly improving our skills and investing in new equipment to be able to offer more treatment possibilities. Most recently we purchased video endoscopy equipment to be able to perform minimally invasive procedures and avoid surgery in many cases. We have also upgraded our blood analysers and purchased new ECG, blood pressure monitoring and ocular pressure measuring devices. This is all cutting edge equipment to make sure your pet gets the best in diagnostics and care, right here in Cardiff.
 
Tom, the partner here at Llanrumney holds the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Small Animal Surgery Certificate and performs referral level orthopedic surgery every week. In particular he enjoys dealing with canine cruciate (knee) cases, patellar (kneecap) luxations and fractured bones. Another of our vets Julija holds the ESVPS Certificate in Feline Practice and our nurse Rob has recently taken his exam for the ESVPS Nurse Certificate in Anaesthesia. Our vets, alongside the usual medical cases, have special interests in skin and ear disease, heart disease, lameness and joint problems, old age issues and dental disease. We invest heavily in our team’s clinical development so that our team keeps up to date with all the latest developments to make sure your pet gets the very best care.
 
Our nursing team is very happy to see your pets for dental and weight watchers clinics, puppy socialisation visits, general diet advice and flea and worming treatments. And not forgetting our reception team who are always there to give your pet some fuss when you come to visit us. This team is the backbone of our clinic – they know every pet by name and ensure that you receive all the support you need.
 
We’re proud of our clinic and we hope you will be proud to recommend us too.
