I started at Vets4Pets in the summer of 2020 after qualifying from the University of Nottingham. I am originally from Winchester so am enjoying being close to the beach! It is very rewarding working as part of such a great team and getting to know our lovely clients and their pets. I have no pets of my own currently, but I hope that will change in the not-too-distant future.

Originally from Northern Ireland, I graduated from RVC, London in 2014. After an amazing 8 months travelling around South East Asia and working in shelter medicine, I moved to Devon and worked in a busy, small animal hospital in Dartmoor for 5 and a half years. Now in Bournemouth, I joined the fabulous Poole Vets4Pets team in Feb 2021. I love the variety of cases I see as a GP vet, and particularly enjoy soft tissue surgery. I'm an advocate for improving mental health in the veterinary profession and also proud to be a StreetVet volunteer. I have a Staffie-cross rescue from Margaret Green called Tilly, who rules my life! I also love playing sport and exploring the Dorset coast.

Emily Barker

Registered Veterinary Nurse


Read Emily Barker bio

I have been nursing since 2012 alongside a lovely team of colleagues, and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in July 2017. I have a keen interest in medical nursing and emergency and critical care. Both give me one on one time with patients and enable me to get to know more about the patient’s personalities and personal quirks whilst in the hospital with us. I love being able to provide care to patients enabling me to observe their personal improvements overtime.
