Aimi Glover

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

BVSc(hons) GPCert(SAS) CertAVP MRCVS

Read Aimi Glover bio

I qualified in Veterinary Medicine in 2004 from the University of Bristol. After a year in mixed practice I moved into solely small animal work including an internship at the University of Liverpool in 2001 and opened Vets4Pets Barnstaple in November 2018. I love all aspects of my job but have a particular interest and specialisation in soft tissue surgery having gained both a General practitioners certificate (GPCert(SAS)) in 2009 and an RCVS certificate (CertAVP) in 2015. Despite these post-graduate qualifications I still have a strong interest in medicine and love the variety of clinical cases and animals that we see. My favourite part of our job is getting to meet clients and their pets and form an ongoing relationship with them over time seeing their pets grow and helping to keep them well. I also am kept busy with my 7 year old son and 4 year old daughter. We share our home with our 6 month old whippet, a cat, a hamster, an axolotyl and a horse so life is busy!

Hi, my name is George and I am a Veterinary Surgeon here at Vets4Pets Barnstaple. I qualified in Veterinary Medicine from the University of Bristol in 2022.
I am a local farmer’s son and since a young age I have always wanted to be a Vet.
I enjoy all aspects of my job, particularly Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia.

Outside of work I am kept busy on our family farm taking care of cows, sheep, horses, chickens, and a multitude of other animals!

I look forward to meeting yourself and your pets here at Vets4Pets Barnstaple.

Hi, I am Janice and a Veterinary Nurse here at Barnstaple Vets4Pets

I grew up on a small dairy farm many years ago, on the Blagdon Hills, near Taunton. 

My aim in life was to travel while I was younger and I took a year out backpacking around Australia, this was one of the best years of my life and I even got to hold a Tasmanian Devil! 

Upon returning to England, I attended Bicton Collage of Agriculture studying an animal care course (in which I gained a distinction). After my animal care course I started my Veterinary Nurse training in Torquay and then moved to a local large and small animal practice near Ilfracombe, where I stayed for 16 years. 

Having a passion for animals and maths, I then re-trained as a book keeper, but I missed the Veterinary world and was pleased to be offered a place as a Veterinary Nurse at Vets4Pets Barnstaple, where I have joined a very happy team.

Hello, my name is Philippa and I am a Student Veterinary Nurse at Barnstaple Vets4Pets. I have always loved working with people and have an extensive background in customer service and supporting vulnerable people. However, I have always dreamed of working with animals and I am so happy to have the opportunity to do so in such a friendly and professional practice. Although I don’t have my own pets currently, I take every opportunity to cuddle and play with my family’s pets including two cheeky Chihuahua’s and a Saarloos Wolfdog puppy. ​

Veterinary Care Assistant

Read Claire Saltearn bio

Hello! I am Claire a Veterinary Care Assistant.. I am passionate about animal care and am thrilled to be working in such a welcoming establishment with this at the heart. My background involves biology, animal behaviour and care as well as administration and customer care. I feel very fulfilled in my role, being able to support clients and their pets through what can be a worrying time for them both.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my Husband, two young children and cat cuddles.  My current feline friend is a 13yr old rescue cat called Murphy. I have grown up with cat's and can't see there being much time without one by my side. I have also had a Syrian Hamster, as well as assisting with lambing and care of various other small animals.

Daryl Clayden

Veterinary nurse

Read Daryl Clayden bio

Hello, my name is Daryl and I am a veterinary nurse at Vets4pets Barnstaple.

I'm originally from a small village in Scotland where my passion for animals started at a very young age.

I started working in my first small animal veterinary practice at the age of 17 and then studied veterinary nursing at Edinburgh's Royal (Dick) Vet school, qualifying in 2005.

I have a keen interest in animal nutrition, canine behaviour and a passion for client care.  I have several pets including my collie cross, leopard gecko and fish.

I took a career break and became deputy manager for Pets at Home for a few years but then realised I really missed nursing.

I moved to Devon 2 years ago and I've been fortunate enough to return to the profession within Vets4pets Barnstaple.
