Gemma Bargman

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Gemma Bargman bio

I have always loved animals and wanted to be a vet from a young age. I never even considered any other career paths! After graduating from Edinburgh Vet School in 2006, I worked in a busy mixed practice before moving to a smaller practice concentrating on companion animals. During this time, I completed my CertAVP (Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice) which helped me to develop a deeper knowledge of the veterinary industry and practice as a whole. I now have an understanding of how to critically analyse the quality of care we offer our patients and how to move the practice forward through this. I also achieved my CertVBM (Certificate of Veterinary Business Management) at this time. The best part of being in practice is meeting pets with their families and watching them grow, develop and build a relationship with us. I want everyone to feel as if their pets are treated as we would treat ours - as part of our family. Music has always been an important part of my life, and I also enjoy cooking, meeting up with friends and reading.

I qualified from the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna in 2005. Whilst working full time in a small animal hospital in Austria I continued a post graduate doctoral program at the University for two years and came to the UK in 2010. After working in a small animal hospital with out of hours service in Hertfordshire for five years I joined the Vets4Pets group in 2015. I have been part of Vets4Pets Bishop's Stortford since April 2018. I enjoy all aspects of small animal medicine but I particularly like internal medicine and abdominal ultrasound. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, reading and skiing in Austria.

I was fortunate enough that pets were always welcome in my family and I grew up looking after many different species from tiny hamsters to bigger guinea pigs, rabbits and of course dogs and cats. I soon realised I wanted to be a vet.

After graduation from Veterinary University in Czech Republic in 2011, I spent almost 3 years in a small animal practice in the south of Spain. I moved to the UK in 2014, mainly to improve and further develop my veterinary skills. I’ve worked for several small animal clinics since and I joined the friendly Vets4Pets team in Bishops Stortford in July 2019.

I was seriously considering pursuing a specialisation earlier in my career but I realised I enjoy the variety of a general practice more and prefer knowing my patients from babies to grey and stiff oldies.

I enjoy animal charity work too. I volunteered at and worked for the largest animal/spanish greyhound (galgo) shelter in the past and I am casually helping with a small cat charity Scratching Post in Waltham Abbey at the moment. I look forward to meeting you and your pets.

My name is Morgan, I am a Client Care Advisor here at Vets4Pets Bishops Stortford during the afternoons and evenings during the week and every other weekend. I own two gorgeous French Bulldogs (Bomber & Piper) and a kitten called Dilly. Who all take centre stage in our house! Having always been around animals since a young age, I’ve always had a keen interest in working with them. I worked at a boarding kennels and cattery before coming to Vets4Pets, working there helped me gain a lot of knowledge about dogs and cats. However I am now looking forward to extending my knowledge further through a veterinary based role. I look forward to meeting all of you and your lovely pets!

My name is Laura and I work a variety of shifts throughout the week and every other weekend. My family has a rescue dog called Rocko (who was too wriggly for a photo!) and have always had an animal of one species or other around.

I’ve always been passionate about animals, but the idea to work with them didn’t cross my mind until a couple of years ago when I started work in a boarding kennels and cattery.

I look forward to meeting everyone!
