Veterinary Surgeon 

I qualified as a Veterinary Surgeon at the Royal (DICK) School of Veterinary Studies in 2004. I have worked for 6 years in mixed practice and has now decided to focus on small animals. I enjoy all aspects of the job but my main interest is surgery. I spend a lot of my free time walking my Greyhounds or socialising with family and friends.

Jessica Warne RVN

Head Veterinary Nurse 

I’m originally from a tiny village in the North of Scotland but moved to Stirling where I worked in retail before deciding to follow my dream and train to become a veterinary nurse. I qualified from Edinburgh's Telford College in March 2013 with a Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing. I started working for Vets 4 Pets Stirling in March 2013 and progressed on to become Head Nurse in 2014. The best things about being a veterinary nurse is getting to help pets and their owners on their journey from the really young to the more senior! I love having client and patient interaction and therefore really enjoy consults. This is really special to me as I get to spend time helping patient’s feels better, improving their quality of life and most importantly building a strong bond with them.

I also have a passion for emergency and medical nursing and I am currently studying towards gaining my certificate in Emergency and Critical Care. I live with my fiancé, three rescue guinea pigs and my beautiful but crazy rescue Jack Russell Skye who loves walkies and cuddles from everyone she meets. When I’m not working I enjoy walking outdoors and up hills with Skye, reading, fixing up our house, crafts, gardening, going to the gym and cooking.

Registered Veterinary Nurse

After graduating from the University of Edinburgh with a degree in Biological Sciences with honours in Zoology I then trained to become a Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) and have recently qualified. I done my veterinary nurse training here and am happy to continue to work here now I am qualified. I enjoy the variety of the job as you never know what the day will bring and while this can be stressful it is very rewarding to see the progress a patient can make with treatment and nursing care. I find the diversity of cases very interesting and I am always learning due to the many different species and conditions we see. I have a guinea pig named Claudia. In my free time I enjoy crafting, spending time with friends and attending dance fitness classes.
