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 started working at Vets4Pets Newport Road in April 2021.

I studied zoology at the university of Exeter from 2012 to 2015 and  then progressed to study Veterinary Medicine at the University of Medicine and Pharmacology in Slovakia.

I graduated as a Veterinary Surgeon in 2020 and have loved the job ever since.

 

My favourite aspect of the job is the medical side. I am very interested in developing my knowledge of dermatology and cardiology.

I am very excited about my future here at Vets4Pets Newport Road.

I’ve always been a massive animal lover and have known from a young age I wanted to work with animals. I have always been surrounded by a variety of animals growing up.

I started my nursing career in 2009 and qualified as a registered veterinary nurse (RVN) in 2013. I enjoy every aspect of my job especially the wide variety of patients and cases presented each day. I love nursing sick patients back to health and providing owners with advice about keeping their pet in tip top condition.

I have a particular interest in our feline patients and gained a certificate in feline friendly nursing in 2019. I am also interested in caring for neonates and have hand-reared a number of litters of kittens, puppies and even a litter of mice.

I currently own three cute cats named Chester, Colin the Creature and Titch and a beautiful Irish setter dog named Scarlett.

I love working for Vets 4 Pets Cardiff Newport Road, everyone working here is a true animal lover and has every patients’ best interest at heart.

After two years of hard work and studying, I recently passed all my Veterinary Nursing exams and I am proud to say I am now a fully Registered Veterinary Nurse.

I have a troublesome pair of ginger tom cats which are litter brothers and constantly keep me entertained.

In my spare time I like to bake lots of unhealthy cakes and biscuits.

I joined Vets4Pets in May 2018 as a part time Veterinary Nurse. I had worked as a Veterinary Nurse for many years in the Cardiff area but stopped to run my riding school. I missed the Veterinary work so came back into the industry in 2017.

I have 2 children, a German Shepherd cross called Aslan and a cat called Roger who along with the horses keep me very busy in my spare time!

I joined Vets4Pets in May 2017. I had previously had an 8 year career as a hairdresser but my love of animals made me decide on a career change.

I started as a receptionist and  then became a Veterinary Nursing Assistant with the aim of becoming a qualified Veterinary Nurse one day.

In my spare time I am usually found walking my two crazy dogs Bella the Beagle and Brody the Whippet or looking after my three cats.

As of July 2021, I am now a Student Veterinary Nurse.

I have always had a love for animals and want to be a qualified veterinary nurse in the future.

I live with two rescue dogs, Millie, a beautiful black and white collie cross and Skye Blue who is a blue merle collie and an assortment of fishies.

I joined the Vets4Pets Newport Road team in September 2020 as a receptionist after working for PetsAtHome for four years. 

I have a wide range of pets Including Roux the Border Collie, Jess the cat, Ash and Koda the Ferrets, two snails called Tofu and Beans and then an assortment of fishies.

I have a toddler, so my spare time is spent either with her or with our many gorgeous pets.

I have always loved animals so moving from PetsAtHome to the Vets has been a natural and perfect fit.
