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.
“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.”
Pets owned: What hasn’t he owned! Currently, he has chickens, a cat called Walter and a Boston Terrier Violet.
Angus is a Director of Fishguard Vets. 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.
Hanna grew up in London where the main animals around were scrawny foxes and odd-toed pigeons, but her animal passions began early. She is keen to work with all species, both farm and smaller pets in the practice. She graduated from Nottingham University in July 2023 and has started on our new Graduate Scheme. Fishguard promises to be a great adventure, both professionally and geographically, and Hanna is looking forward to developing her veterinary skills in this lovely community. Outside work, she is a keen whittler, and is always looking out for a good scrap of driftwood.
I’m so excited to meet all of the pets, livestock, pet owners and farmers of Fishguard. I can’t think of a more beautiful place to work!
Pets owned: Previously owned a black cat called Cindy, who has stayed in London with her preferred human, and a couple of foster kittens while at university. In the near future, hopefully a cat, or any other creature with sad eyes and no home that crosses her path.
Dotty Van Doorn
Dotty grew up in Whitland, Carmarthenshire and could most often be found out and about in the countryside; walking, running or busy at her second favourite job: milking cows. Dotty graduated from the Edinburgh Vet School in July 2023 and following a period of travelling around Europe in an old campervan, is looking forward to getting stuck into all aspects of veterinary work in Fishguard. When not working at the vets, Dotty will most likely be found playing rugby or swimming in the Irish Sea.
