We are a small animal practice in South Wales, with branches in both Barry and Boverton. We are passionate about animal care and our skilled team of veterinarians and vet nurses are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your animals. Because we love animals and strive to provide excellent continuity of care, we are open six days a week and have access to 24-hour emergency care. For your added convenience, there’s free parking for clients at the surgery.
Katy originally started working at Barry & Boverton Vets in 2004 as practice administrator and has recently re-joined the team as practice manager following a break of five years during which she was a manager for Waitrose. When she isn’t in the practice, Katy can be found amongst the sheep on the farm she runs with her father. She has two cats, Bandit and Boo, and in her spare time is studying for a degree with the Open University.
Julie has worked at both our Barry and Boverton branches since November 2016, after having previously worked as a team leader for 21 years with Tesco in Barry. Julie is a huge dog fan and owns a Staffordshire Bull Terrier called Oscar. She also enjoys travelling and loves history.
Andrea joined the practice in 2012 and works at the Boverton surgery. She is the mother of two grown up girls and has had various jobs prior to joining the practice, including serving in the Armed Forces for six years as a registered general nurse; working as dental nurse and also working as a trained and practiced as a pharmacy technician. She loves animals, helping people and all things medical, so thought she would combine all three passions and work on reception in a veterinary practice! Andrea is the practice advocate for Healthy Pet Club and also the health and safety coordinator. When not at work she loves being outdoors with her two dogs of whom many of you may have met whilst visiting the practice, Cassie, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Geezer, a Cairn Terrier.
