Meet the team
I qualified from Cambridge in 1989 and have spent 2 years in practice working in Wood Green Animal Shelters, Barry and Bridgend. In 1998 I became a partner at Swansea Vets4pets and we’ve built a great, well-established team here. I have many animals – dogs, cats, pigs, sheep, donkeys, turkeys, guinea pigs, rabbits, ducks, chickens, ferrets, pigeons and peacocks- all pets because I’m a vegetarian! When I’m not in work I enjoy knitting, reading, sewing, gardening and Egyptology (to name a few).
I am registered with the British Hen Welfare Trust as a chicken friendly vet.
Our practice is known for being especially pigeon friendly, so if you know of a pigeon in need, give us a call!
Nicky Townsend has been with the practice for 5 years after qualifying from Liverpool University. She has 4 dogs, 7 cats, numerous hamsters, rabbits, a guinea pig and a chinchilla. She is assisted in looking after all these animals by her young daughter, Erin. Nicky enjoys baking, gardening, sewing, knitting and crochet.
