Julie JVP Hamilton

Julie McGarry - BVMS MRCVS

Veterinary surgeon & Joint Venture Partner


I graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 2003 and after a spell in small animal and equine work in the East Midlands, have worked exclusively in small animal practice for the last 10 years . Having grown up in Lanarkshire, I moved back closer to home in 2007. Having worked in both permanent and locum positions in practices in Central Scotland I am looking forward to setting up in Hamilton. I enjoy all aspects of small animal practice and have a particular interest in medicine cases and dentistry.


I have worked for Vets4Pets since June 2016, when I was employed as Lead Vet to open Vets4Pets in Falkirk. I enjoyed the challenge of starting this new business and look forward to opening my own practice in Hamilton and meeting all the new pets and their owners coming through our doors. I have a Labrador puppy called Luna whom you may see around the practice from time to time . I also have 3 cats called Rocky, Rambo and Jess and a Russian hamster called Murray (although this may need to become Sir Murray!).


When I’m not at work I enjoy walking, eating out and going to the cinema. I also enjoy holidays and following tennis, including visiting various tournaments both at home and abroad.

Andrea Harned-Beddard BVMS MRCVS

Veterinary surgeon

I am originally from the United States and moved to Scotland to study Veterinary Medicine at the University of Glasgow. After falling in love with Scotland and my now husband Sebastian, I decided I just couldn’t leave and made Glasgow my permanent home.


I have worked exclusively in small animal medicine. I love working with wee furries and have a keen interest in surgery. I’m really excited to be part of a brand new practice. I am looking forward to watching it grow and meeting all our new clients and their fur babies.


My husband and I have a rescue greyhound named Fenton who is a very lazy beast and a wee hamster named Olaf.


Outside of work I enjoy travelling, spending time with my family and friends, lounging around with Fenton, dancing and working out. Additionally, I love the outdoors, particularly water activities like swimming, surfing, fishing, snorkelling, and scuba diving.

Katie Maclean

Student Veterinary Nurse

I qualified as a Veterinary Care Assistant in May 2013 in Dumfries. I have worked in several practices and thoroughly enjoy my job. I have now been given the opportunity to progress to become a qualified Veterinary Nurse and I’m thoroughly enjoying my course and can’t wait to finally be qualified.


Out of work I have a rescue greyhound called Brady. My parents also have 2 rescue greyhounds called Sue and Storm, as I still live at home I spend a lot of my time with these 3 dogs at the parks and doing various rescue events with them.


I am looking forward to starting in the brand-new practice with amazing facilities. I am very excited to be meeting all of you and your adorable pets in the coming weeks and months.
