Paik Koh BVM&S MRCVS
Veterinary Surgeon and Joint Venture Partner
I graduated from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies at The University of Edinburgh in 2003, and spent my first 3 years working in mixed practice. The following years were spent in small (companion) animal practice in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
I have had plenty of interesting and ‘exotic’ animals to look after, ranging from the usual cats, dogs and small mammals, to many feathered and scaly companions. The unusual and exciting challenge of exotic pets always keeps me on my toes!
I have a keen interest in surgery, both soft tissue and orthopaedic, and have achieved a Post graduate Certificate in Small Animal Surgery. This allows me to offer our patients more complex surgical options, which were previously restricted to referral practices.
Since Vets4Pets, Fort Kinnaird and Musselburgh opened, it has been pretty hectic but very rewarding. It’s been a lot of fun getting to know our clients and their (many-legged) best friends, and building a strong bond of trust with each of them. 2013 was a big year for us. I was honoured to be a finalist in Petplan’s Vet of the Year Awards 2013.
I spend a lot of my spare time baking and cooking, but am resolving to spend more time outdoors (climbing and cycling). My mischievous duo of girls are Tabitha (a 14yr-old tabby girl), and Sushi (a 9yr-old tabby girl), with my husband being the only boy in the house! Some of you have known Stovie, my beloved Springer Spaniel cross who I lost just before Musselburgh was opened and is still very much missed.
As can be seen by my pets’ names, I spend a lot of time thinking about food too!
