Carmarthen Veterinary Centre is an award winning, purpose built, state of the art practice providing care for all animals, large and small. The centre houses companion animal, farm, exotic inc camelid and equine facilities, with dedicated vets in each field. We are an RCVS accredited practice standards scheme hospital facility with 24-hour onsite and out of hours care provided by our own vets and nurses, ensuring continuity of care with a team you can trust.
Laura joined the team in August 2017 to oversee the ‘new dawn’ at Carmarthen Veterinary Centre. She has set up, run and subsequently sold a multi-million pound turnover business in her previous career and assisted many SME’s over the last seven years to reach their potential working as a business adviser. Laura is passionate about excellent customer service for a fair price and fears she may soon have more pets than people in her home after falling in love with the animals that come into our practice on a daily basis.

Sue started in Merlin Vet Group as a receptionist in 2000 before moving to the new Carmarthan Veterinary Centre with us in 2008. She works across the small animal and large animal desks. In her spare time she enjoys getting lots of fresh air exploring our amazing coastline from the Mumbles to Dinas Island, and she also loves escaping on a plane to the Canaries and other Spanish destinations. When not exploring she also enjoys losing herself in a good book, the cinema, live music and winding down with a good glass of wine.
Erica joined Carmarthen Veterinary Centre in October 2015. When not at work Erica enjoys life on her smallholding with her husband, two dogs, three cats, sheep, chickens, ducks and a poly-tunnel to be busy in when it rains! If not at home Erica will probably be found visiting her family or walking the coast path, hills and beaches with her dogs Jess and Jenny. At work Erica enjoys being part of the team and meeting new and regular pets and their owners as well as helping farm clients with routine and emergency requests.

Diane has been working for us since 1990, when she started as a receptionist at Ark Vets. Many people may recognise her voice as she regularly takes the phones out of hours. Diane enjoys seeing old clients, as well as getting know new ones. She loves meeting all the pets and says she even enjoys working with all of us! When she finally gets home, Diane is no less busy, enjoying reading, watching rugby, and baking cupcakes… when she’s not chauffeuring her children!

She is currently experimenting with digital portraiture. Anna loves cooking and spicy food but hasn't mastered making a curry as good as the local take away yet!
