Meet the Dumbarton vet team

Ciara Dumbarton Vets4Pets

Ciara Campbell BVMS MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon and Practice Owner

I graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 2007, and ever since have concentrated on small animal medicine and surgery. I enjoy all aspects of general practice, but I do have a special interest in surgery – both soft tissue and orthopaedics.

I have worked across the UK, gaining experience in practices in both Scotland and England. My goal is to bring the discipline and best practices from these previous experiences to a warm and welcoming surgery delivering the highest standards of patient care.

Out side of work I enjoy spending time with my two rescued pets – 16 year old cat, Spice, and 3 year old Minnie the Chihuahua.

I am looking forward to providing the best quality care, and cannot wait to meet my new clients and their much loved pets!

Stuart Kerr BVMS MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

Having grown up on a farm I have spent all my life surrounded by creatures great and small. Pursuing a career in veterinary medicine seemed natural, every day brings a different challenge and has kept me on my toes since graduating from Glasgow University in 2012.


I started off in mixed practice before making a change to focus on the small animals only. I enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine and have a keen interest and passion for surgery. Outside of work I enjoy an active lifestyle of running, rugby and squash, with the occasional ski and snowboarding trip over the winter.


I have been welcomed into my new job at Vets4Pets Dumbarton by a great team of dedicated staff and look forward to meeting the new clients and helping look after their beloved pets.

Emma Stewart BVMS MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 2009, and have worked in Small Animal practice ever since. I have a particular interest in internal medicine, particularly feline medicine. I have worked in practice in Yorkshire, before returning to Scotland to work. I have gained some experience in exotic pets and have treated some very unusual animals! I love working with animals of all shapes and sizes but cats are my particular favourite. Outside of work I enjoy a variety of crafting related hobbies, including knitting, sewing and painting. I also have a cat of my own, a three year old black and white called Echo, who keeps life interesting and entertaining! I am delighted to have taken this next step in my career as a vet by joining the team at Dumbarton and look forward to meeting your beloved pets and providing the best care for them.

Amy MacDonald

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I have always worked with animals in some sort since leaving school. I went to college to study animal care when I left school, then I worked in a boarding kennels and cattery for just over two years and then into a veterinary practice for the past three and a half years. I graduated from college in Edinburgh in 2018.

I love working with animals! I have a beautiful cocker spaniel called Derek, he is crazy and always keeps me on my toes! I also have a terrapin, fish and a sweet little cat called Norma.

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I started at Vest4Pets Dumbarton in May 2016 when I was on placement as a student veterinary nurse. I then took on the role as one of the weekend receptionists in October 2016 whilst continuing my placement work. I graduated from Edinburgh Napier University in June 2018 as a Registered Veterinary Nurse and have been enjoying my new role within the practice.

At home I have a crazy 4 year old labradoodle called Nova who is just adorable but full of mischief. I enjoy meeting all of our clients and their lovely pets and I am really lucky to be able to do a job that I love.

Hayley Campbell

Veterinary Care Assistant

I have always had a keen interest in animals from a very young age. When I left school I worked with Clydesdale horses and highland cattle. I then went on to complete a course on animal care at Oatridge College, while attending college I volunteered at a local community farm. I was absolutely delighted to be offered a job within Vets4Pets and have loved my time here so far working with an exceptional bunch of people and meeting all of our patients old and new. The definitely has to be one of the most rewarding jobs. Since Joining Vets4Pets I have carried out a college course and have now qualified as a Veterinary Care Assistant. In the very near future I will hopefully be undertaking a course to become a Registered Veterinary Nurse which is very exciting.

Rosie Brown

Student Veterinary Nurse

I have held a passion for animal care for as long as I can remember, rescuing and caring for a vast array of species, from pigs to racoons and everything in between. I joined the Vets4Pets team in November 2017, we are so lucky to have such a lovely group of people working here so settling in was easy. I particularly enjoy meeting clients and their gorgeous pets and caring for inpatients. I look forward to starting my Veterinary Nursing in September along with Madison. 

Previous to my position here, I ran my own successful store in the west end of Glasgow for 6 years. I sold my business and my partner and I travelled over to live in beautiful New Zealand for a year which was a great experience.

At home we have a little Jack Russell called Ruby, pictured above, she is 5 and half years old and loves attention and hill walking.

Elise Friar

Student Veterinary Nurse & Receptionist

I started my placement in Vets4Pets Dumbarton in January 2018 as a Student Veterinary Nurse. I was then lucky enough to be offered a job as a weekend receptionist to fit around my time at university. I graduated HNC animal care in June of 2017 during the 2 years I studied in Dumfries, I had the opportunity to work with so many different animals from dairy cows, a particular favourite of mine, to hedgehogs as well as many pet animals like, dogs, ferrets and hamsters.

Outside of work I enjoy long walks with Oscar, the 6 year old cocker spaniel, and Benjy, the 15 year old Border Collie. They are both very energetic and a joy to be around.

I am so excited to continue working with such a passionate team who have already made me feel so welcome and to meet all of the lovely clients both existing and new.

Madison Gilchrist

Student Veterinary Nurse

I have always loved animals and wanted to pursue a career within the animal care sector. I completed a years placement in the practice while completing my veterinary care assistant course in 2016 and was pleased to be offered a full time job in the practice. I am hoping to go on to start my veterinary nursing training next year.

I have a 6 year old German Shorthaired Pointer named Mollie and a 10 week old Miniature Schnauzer named Martha. Mollie enjoys long walks along the beach and a good swim and Martha being a puppy loves lots of attention and cuddles. I also have a big rescue cat named Rufus, he is roughly 5 years old and loves tummy tickles and lots of treats.

Martha is lucky enough to spend most of her days in the practice with me and we both look forward to meeting you all.
