Andrew Clemence
BVMS MRCVS

Andrew is the sole owner of Fishguard Vets. He graduated from Glasgow University in 1986 and moved to Pembrokeshire in 1988. He has built a large client base, with some travelling the whole county and beyond for his expertise. Andrew enjoys any challenges that mixed practice brings and is at home carrying out dairy herd fertility, first opinion equine or undertaking technical medical or surgical small animal cases.
His biggest achievement to date was constructing a purpose-built practice, which opened in September 2015.

 

Pets owned: What hasn’t he owned! Currently, he has chickens, a cat called Walter, a dalmatian Vera and a Boston Terrier Violet.

 

Quote: “I enjoy de-stressing by playing squash for the local team and water skiing our beautiful coastline. You can often find me trying out the local restaurants with my family.”

Ryan Davies
BVM&S MRCVS

As Ryan was growing up he was often found undertaking work experience with Andrew gaining as much knowledge as possible. He graduated from Edinburgh in 2002.
Ryan’s main area of interest are dairy cow fertility and herd productivity, using our in-house software to analyse farm data and monitor performance; specifically pregnancy rates and milk production.

 

Pets owned: Goats, Chickens and birds of prey.

 

Quote: “There is nothing like finishing work on a summer’s day and heading for a surf. I enjoy exploring the beautiful Pembrokeshire coastline.”

Angus Clemence
BVMS MRCVS

Born and bred in Fishguard, Angus qualified from Glasgow Vet School in 2016 and, after initially working at Fishguard Vets he moved to the Midlands to gain further mixed animal experience. The lure of Pembrokeshire and the chance to pursue his hobbies of surfing and waterskiing drew him back to Fishguard. Angus was excited to renew his relationship with our local clients and has great enthusiasm to involve himself in dairy herd fertility programmes, long term health planning on all farms, alongside developing his medical and surgical companion animal skills.

 

Pets owned: Frida, a Staffie and Nora a French Pointer.

 

Quote: “I cannot wait to be living close to the sea again, spending my days off on the water and starting a family.”

Sunel Jooste
MRCVS

Sunel grew up in the African desert climate of Namibia, which might account for the dryness of her humour, or drought thereof. Being from a family and community of people, who are almost compulsively drawn into horses and farming, she was soon made aware of the necessity of having a vet on hand in a country where your closest vet is usually 2 hours’ drive. Thus, she set off into the ‘unknown’ to study veterinary science at South Africa’s Onderstepoort Faculty (University of Pretoria). There she finished her studies with a special interest in Rural Veterinary Practice, which in South Africa usually involves general mixed practice, as found in rural communities, and wildlife (of the proper African variety).

 

Pets owned: Welsh Collie.

 

Quote: “Always aiming to broaden my horizons, I arrived in Fishguard. Now spending my days scratching my head at the polar opposite climates, methods of farming, ‘wildlife’, and cuisine.”
