Hi My name is Elaine and I am very happy to be part of the team here in Blackwood. For as long as I can remember I always wanted to become a Veterinary Nurse and have spent my life looking after animals. Many years ago when I left school it was very difficult to find a training practice and I instead went to work with horses gaining my BHSAI in 1980.
After settling down and having a family I returned to work as a Veterinary Receptionist and was fortunate enough to be offered a training position and finally achieved my dream in 2013 and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse.
My spare time is spent looking after my many animals which include Snakes, Frogs, Lizards and Tarantulas as well as some furry ones; cats, dogs and a Guinea Pig. A lot of my animals have come to me as rescues or strays. The rest of my time is spent walking my dogs in the hills around my home. I also enjoy photography and crafts.
Hi I'm Becci, I'm an RVN here at Vets4Pets. I finished my degree in 2012, where I studied behaviour & Welfare. I started here on reception and then became a VCA before completing my training as a registered nurse. Previously I worked in doggy day care, as a dog walker and pet sitter. I also volunteered on an elephant rescue project in Thailand. I love animals!
I've had pets all my life and currently live with 3 house rabbits (Sketch, Duck & Rocket) who love to eat my furniture. I like to teach my rabbits tricks, they are very clever. I enjoy hiking with my parent's dog Bryn who is a Cavalier King Charles. They also have 3 cats that I grew up with.
I always wanted to be a vet nurse, when I was little I used to pretend to make my soft toys better.
I love working here, everyone loves animals the way I do and there is a great family atmosphere. Everyday is different and there are lots of opportunities for pet cuddles.

My name is Clair and I am the Practice Manager here at Blackwood Vets4Pets. I joined the practice in 2019, shortly before COVID 19. I haven't always worked in a vets but have been in people management in a customer service environment for more than 30 years.
I share my home with my husband who also works here at the practice and our 2 Border Collies, Lucky who is 13 and Piper who is less than a year old. When not in work I love to spend time walking on the beach and I enjoy going to see musicals. I am also a member of a local theatre group and love being on stage as well as helping to design and paint sceneary and props.
My job here is to look after our clients, our staff and our facilities, ensuring that everyone has the skills, resources and equipment to look after all our patients. My job is challenging but very rewarding and I feel very at home. The staff are all very skilled and knowledgeable and I am very lucky to work with an amazing team of Vets, Nurses and Receptionists.
Hi my name is Sian and I the Practice Administrator here at Blackwood, I also work on reception as it can get very busy out on the desk.
I haven't always worked at a vets, I took early retirement from the civil service after 32yrs and became a vet receptionist. In 2016 I joined the brand new team here in Blackwood and I can't imagine ever wanting to work anywhere else.
We have always been a family of animal lovers and at the moment in charge at our house is my fabulous cocker spaniel Murray, also know as 'The monster'. I really enjoy spending time with my family and friends and I particularly like shopping!
I love working here as we are like one big animal loving family, the team all call me 'Mama Sian' and many of our clients also know me by that name.
, especially my daughter when she is home from university . It will be great to meet you and your pets soon.

I live with my parents, my 2 dogs and my guinea pigs, who have a whole shed in my garden. I always wanted to do a job that involved helping people and the reception team is a great place to do that, we have some lovely clients and some amazing pets to look after.
In my spare time I like to to watch films and go to the theatre, I also like spending time with my friends.
The work here can sometimes be very tiring and there is lots and lots to learn, but the team here have been very welcoming and there isn't a day that goes by, when I don't learn something new.
I am Sharon, the team here also call me Shaz. I have worked as a Veterinary Receptionist for 8 years and i have been here in Blackwood for a year.
At home I live with my little 7 year old Shihtzu, Coco Pops, she is the biggest Diva I know and is definitely in charge, I also have a black & white cat called Beatrice who is a Maine Coon cross.
