Debbie Pringle

Practice Manager

I Joined the Falkirk Vets4Pets team as Practice Manager in November 2016. After having always worked with animals in numerous different rolls and working alongside many different Veterinary practices, it is lovely to now see how the other side of the consult doors run.

At home I have my Black Labrador who we rescued a few years ago. Teistie is now 11 years old and is a ex-gun dog, he tends to be my shadow no matter where I go, including coming to work with me on a daily basis. Teisties favourite things to do are eating and sleeping.
My other two pets are Charlie and Nutmeg who are my two horses. Charlie is a 8 year old Sports horse who loves nothing more than to cause trouble and thinks he is always the boss. Nutmeg is my little Shetland who I have owned since she was 10 months old.

When I'm not working you will most likely find me spending time with my horses and Teistie, but in my spare time I love to eat out, go nice walks and spend weekends up North relaxing with my partner, friends and family.

Kirsty

Head Nurse

Hi, I’m Kirsty. I qualified as a Registered Veterinary nurse in 2007. I have worked in all types of practice from Vet School and referral nursing to country farm practice. I spent for years working in a rural clinic in New Zealand and came home in 2015. I joined V4P Falkirk in Oct 2016 as a temp nurse and they convinced me to stay in March 2017! I love surgery and meeting the lovely cats and dogs in the nurse clinics.

Out side of work I enjoy horse riding, watching rugby, music, spending time with friends and family and being Mum to my 2 dogs (Fly and Eve) and my cat (Todd) who all made the journey back with me from NZ!!

I joined Vets4Pets in May 2017. I enjoy working with a lovely, supportive team and meeting client with their pets.

Background – I am originally from Dundee, I have worked with animals for over 19 years, 11 of which have been in the veterinary profession where I gained my qualification in 2015.

Interests – I enjoy all aspects of nursing but I have a particular interest in radiography and surgical nursing, where I can assist with routine and lifesaving procedures. Outside work, I enjoy socialising with friends and family.

Pauline

Full Time Receptionist

I have worked at Vets4Pets Falkirk since April 2017. The main things I like about my position is our team and working with the public (and their animals of course!).

I have worked with animals for most of my life but I moved over into hospitality to gain valuable customer service experience, but having missed working with animals too much I decided to move back into the industry joining vets4pets.

My interests outside of work are my own animals, reading, drawing, video games and meditation. Also I am a big huge movie buff and have recently found a love of everything comic book related!

I have two beautiful cats, Arya, my 2 year old tabby cat who loves to play in water, and Mjolnir, who is a little under 2 years, who is a large grey and white, that is scared of his own shadow. I also have two wee guinea pigs, Flash is a little ginger and white piggy and Grimm, who is a tri coloured, they are both 3 years old.

Full Time Receptionist

As I have been here since Vets4Pets acquired the practice in March 2016, it is gratifying to watch it come to fruition, from the bare bones of a building into a fully functioning practice! I am looking forward to seeing the new surgery keep developing and become fully established. 

Animals are very much my passion and I have to remind myself to limit the number I adopt from rescue so that they get the best of everything and all the attention they require. 

I have 2 fabulous rescue cats, Argyll and Abigail Rose, who are 11 years old (my kids who I couldn’t be without), and 3 rescue rabbits. Zoe is a tiny dwarf rabbit with beautiful eyes, one brown eye and one blue. Jay is my big mischievous lop, a total delinquent and highly amusing to watch. It is fabulous to watch the 4 of them out playing in the garden together. 

Jack Reilly my large albino, one lop ear, one normal, enjoys his home comforts and can be found lounging on the arm of the couch between nibbles! 

When I can prise myself away from my fur babies, I love to eat out with friends and family and get a good catch up (to bore them with photos and stories of animals)!
