My name is Simon I am the Practice Manager at both North Tyneside and Morpeth Vets4Pets. I have a keen interest in business and performance management with a track record dealing with large teams & organisations.

I am lucky to live in Northumberland and appreciate the beautiful surroundings that we have here. We love our animals from dogs, cats, horses and our ladies the chickens who provide fresh eggs daily.

Gayle MacDonald

Veterinary Surgeon

I'm originally from the West of Scotland and I studied and graduated from Edinburgh in 2012. For the first 2 years after graduation I worked in a busy small animal practice in Newcastle. After this I went back to Scotland to work closer to home - but a love of the North East and a desire for a new adventure brought me back here.

I am particularly interested in investigating medical cases and looking after older pets. Outside of work I enjoy walking my crazy beagle Hamish, socialising with friends and travelling when possible.

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I have had an interest in animals all my life.  But it was not until after my children, that I decided to become a veterinary nurse.  I have worked in practice since 2002 and became a Registered Veterinary Nurse 2007.  I enjoy running the nurse clinics enabling me to meet and make friends with pets and their owners.

I have two very naughty Cocker Spaniels; Fenton and Bailey, who give me great pleasure walking..

Registered Veterinary Nurse

My love for animals began at a very early age, I was raised on the family farm and never too far away from the sheep, dogs and cats.

After leaving school at 16 I began my VN training and qualified in 1995. Over the last 20 years I have worked in several areas of the veterinary sector increasing my knowledge and skills along the way.

I am very proud to have joined Frances, Simon and the rest of the team at Vets4Pets and look forward to meeting you and your pets in the future.

As I have always wanted to work as a Veterinary Nurse since being 3 year old, I began studying a diploma in Animal Management at Kirkley hall campus. I then began my training at Vets4Pets and enrolled into college to gain a Level 3 Veterinary Nursing certificate. I qualified in 2013 and currently working towards a Level 4 Certificate in Emergency and Critical Care. I am also a clinical coach.

I enjoy hand rearing kittens and have hand reared all but one of my 4 furry felines (Dottie, Sully, Joey and Prinny) I also have a dog named Bugsy and a pony called Copper. In my spare time I enjoy riding my horse, walking in the countryside and camping.

I enjoy working as part of a team at both North Tyneside and now at Morpeth, meeting and greeting our clients and their pets and being able to help clients care for their pets with advise and compassion.

Client Care Team

I began working at North Tyneside Vets4Pets in February 2016 and am very happy to have transferred to the brand new Morpeth store when it opened in August that year. I feel very lucky to have such an interesting and rewarding job and to work with such a brilliant team. Every day is busy and no two days are the same! I enjoy meeting all of our clients but the thing I love most about my job is spending time with all of their beautiful pets.

I am a total cat lover and am completely besotted with my lovely cats. We have Mr Miyagi who was named after my daughter's favourite movie character, and Narla, a rescue cat we adopted after she was brought into the practice and I fell in love with her.

Away from work I enjoy spending time with my family (human and furry), especially Saturday pizza nights. I also enjoy a variety of exercise and I also love baking and cake decorating.
