I graduated 25 years ago in Hannover, Germany and worked in several small animal practices before moving to Cardiff with my husband in 1994. We currently live in Barry with our son and two cats; Ivy and Ceri. I enjoy all aspects of small animal practice but have a particular interest in feline medicine, which I'm looking to further intensify in the future. My patients are mostly dogs, cats and rabbits; I'm also experienced with rats, hamsters, fish, cage birds and exotics.

I graduated from The Royal Veterinary  College in 2013 with a degree in Veterinary Nursing and since then have  been working in small animal practice in South Wales. 

I love everything about my job from providing advice and preventive healthcare, to assisting the vet in surgery. I have a keen interest in nutrition and nurse clinics. Occasionally I locum in Veterinary Emergency Treatment Service to improve my emergency and critical care skills. 

In my spare time I enjoy keeping fit and often foster orphaned animals.  I currently have two indoor cats and a large dog; Myrtle Elizabeth, Eugene Charles and Murray Ross who are forever fosters.

Before coming here, I have worked in a number of practice in Barry, Cardiff and Australia. i joined the Barry Vets4Pets team in April 2018. I like all animals and currently have two cats at home. I have even owned a Tarantula! I am a complete nerd and love learning about new ways to keep our animals happy and healthy. In my spare time I like to keep fit, eating out and getting stuck in to a good book or TV series.

Receptionist

Hello I'm Cath. Working at Vets4Pets Barry has really fulfilled my dreams of working with animals. I have currently worked for the company for 2 years and I am enjoying every minute of it. I love my family and our adorable, allergic dog Paisley. Living with an animal with allergies has fuelled my passion for all things organic and created a hobby of creating my own range of chemical free products and an interest in homeopathy. I have a soft spot for Staffies and will often be spotted sitting in the kennels fawning over these patients.

Armed with a menagerie of animals including my 2 cocker spaniels - Mouse and Miley Cyrus, 4 rescue cats - Brian, Kevin, Rupert and Dora (although there is always room for more!)

I have a work history of customer care which I now extend to furry clients as I can often be found sitting on the floor bribing the patients with treats! In my spare time I enjoy walking my dogs sporting my famous anorak. 

I like all animals but have a special place in my heart for all dogs oodly and doodly.

Receptionist

Hello, I'm Jo. I one of the members of the team and work here as a receptionist in Vets4Pets Barry. I really enjoy the challenges the job brings and I love to get stuck in and help everyone out. I am a huge fan of stationary and am known in the practice as the laminating queen. 

In my past I have been called a 'crazy cat lady' because I started a stray cat neutering scheme whilst living in China for 10 years. Now I live with my grown up family, along with a growing list of furry and scaly creatures. 

 I am a total 'petrol head', have had my own motorbike and absolutely loves Formula1. In my spare time I enjoy quality time in my campervan.

Receptionist

Hello, I'm Sophie, one of the receptionists here at Barry Vets4Pets. I might seem familiar because I started off at pets at home and was working there for about a year before moving to the vets. I absolutely love working here and meeting all the lovely clients and their incredibly sweet pets. 

My love for animals have made me decide to become a vegetarian and I have been for over a year. I have an interest in Sharks and to swim with them is an ambition of mine. 

I currently own 5 dogs - Amber, Harley, Scout, Indie, Arya so when I'm not in work I get plenty of exercise and a lot of cuddling. I also like spending any other free time with my friends socialising.

'Hello, I'm Rhianne.  After many years of working with jewellery, I decided to pursue my long held desire to work with all things furry.

 

I have my own personal petting zoo at home with my beloved dog, four cats and my geriatric tortoise Victor.

I am Vets4Pets newest recruit, I love admin and cuddling all the pets visiting us.

In my spare time I make pompom wreaths, dabble in interior design but mostly you can find me curled up with the cats reading or  walking the dog and tortoise'​
