Gareth likes the fact that being a Vet allows him to work closely with both animals and people and hopefully make a difference to their lives.
Gareth graduated from Bristol University in 2005 and then joined St James Veterinary Group in Swansea to live near family. Initially working as a mixed animal Vet, Gareth soon developed an interest in small animal medicine and surgery and now spends most of his time working at the main hospital in Sketty. Gareth enjoys all aspects of being a Vet, but he particularly enjoys orthopaedic surgery and the challenges this brings. Gareth enjoys working as part of the caring and enthusiastic team at the practice and is proud of the high-level 24/7 service they provide to the animals of Swansea. Outside of work Gareth enjoys roaming the Gower coast with his girlfriend Eli and dog Scrumpy, and whenever possible they all like to combine this with a visit to one of the great cafes, restaurants or pubs in the area! Gareth is also the proud owner of a tortoise called Snoopy, inherited from his late grandfather who insisted Snoopy should never leave Wales.
