Billa Schleicher MRCVS
Billa qualified as a vet in 1992 from Berlin University after having previously worked as a veterinary nurse and studied biology for 2 years - laying the foundation for her wider interest in animals of all sorts!
Billa had planned to work in Canada, but fell in love with Pembrokeshire.
She has a weakness for collies and owns two Border Collies and a Jack Russell, that she "inherited" from a client. She also has a cockatiel that must be in his late thirties or early fourties, some ducks, some chickens and a few sheep! And yes, that hair was indeed blue at the time of the photo and has been blue again since (at special occasions)!
Katie Swords MRCVS
Katie graduated from Edinburgh vet school in 2012.
She moved to Pembrokeshire soon after, having already lived in England, Ireland and Scotland, she thought it was only fair to give Wales a shot!
She lives on a dairy farm with her partner, children and many animals, including goats, dogs and cats.
She is interested in all aspects of veterinary medicine, particularly internal medicine.
Katie is currently working towards a further qualification in companion animal behaviour. Outside of work Katie enjoys exploring Pembrokeshire with her children, writing and spending time with her own pets.
Karen Burton RVN
Karen qualified as a veterinary nurse in 1990 and worked at a very busy PDSA practice in Birmingham for 13 years.
She moved to Pembrokeshire in 2001 and decided to return to veterinary nursing after seeing the position here advertised.
She enjoys nursing sick and injured animals and assisting in operations. Karen is our resident Geriatric Clinic Nurse, who likes to see your older pets to give them a good Health Check.
In her spare time she (sort of) enjoys keeping fit and spending time with her family.
The only drawback to the job is the amount of cake she has to avoid.
