Advanced services

At Vets for Pets, we have invested considerably in our team and kit to make a number of advanced services available to our clients. We also accept referrals from other practices.

Orthopaedics and fracture repair

Our veterinary team have undertaken advanced training to allow us to perform orthopaedic surgery in our practice. If your pet develops an abnormality involving their skeleton or joints, such as elbow dysplasia, a patella (kneecap) that gets stuck, or a torn cruciate ligament, an orthopaedic procedure may help them.

I initially completed a degree in Zoology at Swansea University before undertaking a degree in veterinary medicine at The University of Edinburgh. I moved back to Wales and joined Vets4Pets in 2016.

I enjoy all aspects of clinical practice but am especially interested in medicine cases, especially feline.

My spare time is ruled by four cats – Angus, Enid, Bella and Bernard. When they allow I enjoy reading, gaming and running.

I graduated with honours in 2018, from the University of Mayor, Santiago de Chile.  There, I also co-founded the faculty’s first scientific academy for veterinary students, with the objective to open up the research field for future colleagues.  After working on veterinary public health and on my rural private practice, I moved to Wales to continue to grow as a professional.  Now I am a proud member of the RCVS, and happy to be part of the brilliant team at Vets4Pets.

I have great passion for my work and care for my patients, always giving my best for them to live a happy and healthy life.  In my spare time I like to go on road trips, in the company of my rescued dog Gasper, go to concerts and cook.

After graduating from Liverpool University in 2020, I undertook a year-long rotating internship at a pet hospital in Manchester, subsequently moving to Cardiff to work in the charity veterinary sector, then I started at Vets4Pets in May 2023. Besides getting to meet all our lovely patients and clients, my favourite parts of the job are doing surgery and imaging (x-rays and ultrasound scans).

Outside of work, I enjoy playing rugby for a local women’s team, as well as being on the water windsurfing and dragon boating, weather permitting!

I live in Cardiff with my boyfriend and the recent addition of our rescue cat Xerxes, aptly named after the Persian emperor as he indeed rules the roost!

I love every aspect of my job and wouldn’t change it for the world.

I started working here in June 2022 on reception. I have always been interested in animals and animal studies, so when the opportunity came up to study in college to do an animal care assistant course, I took it. Once I've finished this, I hope to then study to become a veterinary nurse.

I started working for Vets4Pets in May 2023. I have a history of admin work for the NHS but my love for animals led me here. I live at home with my crazy pug/Italian greyhound Edna, sassy cat Deedy, a variety of fishies/shrimp and a tailless gecko that was originally called Stanley but started to lay eggs so got renamed Stanleyetta.

In my spare time I love going on adventures to national trust places, I love reading and I love spending time with my friends and family.

I started working as a receptionist with Vets4Pets in May 2023. I grew up with guinea pigs and spaniels and have owned (and become very invested in) rabbits since 2018.

I’m very passionate about animal welfare and have been from a young age. I would love to train as a veterinary nurse and eventually specialise in exotics. I'd really love to be able to run a rescue & boarding centre for rabbits and small animals in the future.

In my spare time, I enjoy rural walks, foraging and growing veg for my bunnies at our allotment!
