Poppy & Callie
Since meeting Sara at her first puppy health check (along with her mum, brothers and sisters) nearly 12 years ago, the pair have been inseparable. Poppy started her career as Sara’s right-hand-pup in Northern Ireland, working in a mixed animal practice. Upon moving to Edinburgh around 10 years ago, Poppy settled into life in small animal practice and opened Vets4Pets Corstorphine with Sara in 2013. She keeps us all in line, and can often be found helping the Pets at Home team to clean the biscuit aisle!
Callie joined the practice in August 2014 as an 8 week old pup, and quickly adopted the role of Practice Clown! When she’s not delighting us all with the sounds of a squeaky toy, Callie can be found playing in the park behind the practice (usually with friends she makes here at work) or annoying Poppy with requests to wrestle. Callie takes her job role very seriously, and always keeps us laughing.
When Amy first brought Callie along to join the team, Poppy resisted her advances for the first couple of weeks. Quickly Poppy realised that giving in to playing with the bouncy pup was the only way to make her settle down, and now as Callie grows older the girls are often found all curled up, snoozing in a ball of golden fluff.
