Meet the team
Joint practice partner Scott Crichton BVMS MRCVS is originally from the Morayshire area of the Scottish northeast, and after spending countless hours at weekends at his grandparent’s farms he decided the life of a vet was for him. After what seemed a very quick five years at Glasgow Vet School, Scott worked in the Borders and then Glasgow gaining experience in farm, small animal and equine practice. For the last twelve years Scott has worked locally in Edinburgh providing care for all manner of pets, and professes a secret love of guinea pigs, having owned several alongside his moderately behaved Lab called Brook.
Lorna has worked in practices as a nurse for 18 years. Born in Glasgow she gained experience working in kennels/catteries and vet practices, her first job was in practice in Ayr for 3 years before moving to Edinburgh. Lorna has worked in small animal practices in Edinburgh for 15 years before opening her own practice with Vets4Pets. She enjoys all aspects of nursing especially canine behaviour and geriatric care. She has previously worked for a short spell at the Dogs Trust doing behaviour work. Lorna is owned by a beautiful 18 year old rescue cat called Seran and 8 year old rescue dog called Rueben who she enjoys hill walking with. Lorna is looking forward to the challenges of owning the new practice with Scott with whom she has worked with for the last 12 years and is looking forward to meeting new clients and their furry friends!
Scott works as a receptionist here at Vets4Pets in Davidsons Mains and he particularly enjoys meeting both owners & their pets at the practice. Scott has over 16 years of both hands on and theory experience with a wide variety of animals of all different shapes and sizes. Having qualified previously in Animal Care & Management at Oatridge Agricultural College, he has worked as Senior Herpetologist (Reptile Keeper) at Edinburgh Butterfly & Insect World, and as Zoo Keeper & Animal Trainer at Edinburgh Zoo. Scott also has his own pet sitting business; Animal A-Z. When not at work, Scott is kept very busy at home with his own private collection of over 25 pets, some of which include 6 cats, a parrot, coldwater fish, degus, snakes, lizards & exotic/tropical invertebrates. He also enjoys the cinema & visiting Loch Lomond with his fiance.
