Charayne Gordon, Receptionist
Bayswater vets has been in my family for years, with my grandmother bringing her pets to Mr Gordon for over 30 years. This started with her first two dogs, Pollie and Sandy, and her cat Kitty, to our current pets Fashion and Styles. We’ve always had a house filled with loving pets from cats and dogs to reptiles and rodents and still continue to this day. From a younger age I’ve always wanted to work with animals as it’s been one of my passions. In my spare time I like to work on my music singing/songwriting which I hope to progress in the future.
