Meet the Bishopbriggs Vet Team

Bishopbrigs Vets4Pets Chris McGaugie

Chris McGaugie        

Owner & Veterinary Surgeon   

I completed an Honours Degree in Microbiology & Immunology before moving on to Glasgow Vet School and qualifying as a vet in 2004. I have worked in mixed practices but have focused on small animal medicine and surgery since 2007. I feel that this range of experience has given me the drive and ambition to run my own practice and I am delighted to team up with Vets4Pets.

I enjoy all aspects of working as a vet and have a particular interest in internal medicine and exotics. I am currently studying for a Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice with which I aim to deliver an excellent service to the patients and clients of Vets4Pets Bishopbriggs. 

Outside of work I love spending time with my wife, our son and daughter. I enjoy natural history, walking in the country and distance running if the time allows.

Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 2004 having previously obtained a BSc (Hons) in Zoology from the University of Aberdeen.

Being a mostly full time mum to Ben (4) and Abbie (2) takes up the majority of my days but I really enjoy my time when working at Vets4Pets. 

As a small animal clinician I particularly enjoy soft tissue surgery, dermatology and small furry medicine. 

In our spare time I love taking the family swimming and on trips to the countryside.

Annette Irvine RVN

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I qualified form Edinburgh Telford College in 2011.  I then worked for a year in emergency and critical care and another in general practice.  I then decided to travel as a locum nurse to gain more experience. This involved more out of hours work along with time at the Royal Vet College nursing neurological and surgery patients which I enjoyed very much. I transferred from the Stirling Vets 4 Pets practice at the beginning of the year  due to wanting to be nearer home for work.

Outside of work I enjoy chocolate, coffee, yoga, walking my dog Opal and curling up on the sofa reading.
