Alemu Shewakena MRCVS

Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

Since graduating in 1996 I have worked all over the UK, mainly in Wales, West Yorkshire and the Glasgow area. I started my career in mixed practice treating cattle, sheep, horses, cats and dogs, before moving to a large veterinary referral hospital in Leeds. I have a passion for excellent animal care and customer service which I look forward to bringing to Companion Care Linwood. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family and days out in the Scottish countryside!

Julian Beazley BVM&S MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

Since qualifying from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in Edinburgh in 2001, I practiced initially as a mixed animal vet in the London suburbs, then as a solely small animal vet when I moved to Glasgow in 2007. I have 2 rescued cats, Ocelot aged 12 and Erik aged 2 who rule my flat. I enjoys maintaining and driving my old VW Golfs, getting out into the Highlands for some walking and camping, socialising and travelling.

Anne Kerr

Veterinary Care Assistant

Hi my name is Anne, I have been working in the veterinary world since 2005. I love all animals but I am a dog person. I have a handsome Staffordshire Bull Terrier called Xander who is very friendly and a bit mad. I joined the Linwood team in November 2013 and I am looking forward to getting to know everyone.

I have been working with animals for 11 years 5 of those in the veterinary world. I joined the lovely Linwood team in February 2013 and I am looking forward to meeting our clients and their much loved pets. I have a beautiful 12 year old black lab called Fin, a very naughty 3 year old Springer spaniel called Dutch and this is my very handsome cat Buster.

I’m a recent addition to the Vets4Pets team after making the decision to change career from advertising to do something I love! I’m hoping to start my Veterinary Nursing Diploma next year. I have a rabbit at home called Thor and would love to add a Springer Spaniel to the family in the near future.
