Meet the Stirling Vet team

Catherine Gillon MRCVS

Owner & Veterinary Surgeon 

Catherine graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 2002 and worked in Yorkshire for several years before returning to Scotland in 2006. She has always worked in small animal practice and has a particular interest in small furries and exotics. With over ten years experience she is delighted to be a joint venture partner at Vets4Pets Stirling.

Catherine has two cats, Boris and Archie, a Border Collie, Ruaidhri, two chinchillas, two chickens and a tortoise, and she also enjoys going for big walks with her husband and wee boy and when she has the time, she also enjoys bellydancing.

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

Fiona Dykes MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 1988 and spent 16 years in mixed practice before concentrating on small animals.  I especially enjoy surgery and feline medicine.

Out with work I have 2 main roles - "mummy" to my epileptic cat, Frosty Jack; and "Auntie Fiona" to my nieces and nephews ( actually great Auntie to some!)

I also enjoy the countryside and am a sporadic gym enthusiast.

I am delighted to have become part of the Vets4Pets Stirling team.

Jessica Warne RVN

Head Veterinary Nurse 

I moved to the Stirling area to attend university, however after deciding the course was not suited to me I left to pursue various jobs before deciding to follow my dream and train to become a veterinary nurse.  I qualified as a vet nurse from Edinburgh's Telford College in March 2013 with a level 3 diploma. 

I love the outdoors and enjoy activities such as running, hiking and camping as well as pursuing indoor hobbies including various crafts, reading and cooking. 

I live with my partner and my crazy rescue spaniel Jack Russell cross Skye who loves walkies and cuddles from everyone she meets.  

Beth Grant

Registered Veterinary Nurse 

I worked at Pets at Home for a year and a half before moving to Vets4Pets as a receptionist. I am currently in my third year of a Biology degree at Stirling University. At University I am on the committee for two societies, Assassins Guild as President and Paintball society as media officer. 

At home I have a fat cat called Titan, an old cat called Spyro and a tortoise called Kobey. I hope to work with animals after my time at university. To keep stress levels of uni low I enjoy going to the gym and reading.

I joined the surgery when it was first opened in August 2010.  I had previously worked in the banking sector for 14 years before having my family who are now all grown up.  I worked in retail for several years before deciding the time was right to do something completely different. I have always had a love for animals, especially dogs and decided this job could be perfect for me.

Outside work, my husband and I enjoy watching football, hill climbing and walking our 2 Labradors, Mallie and Libby.  We also enjoy socialising with friends and family and spending time together on holiday.

Before joining Vets4Pets I spent 6 years as a manager for a photo processing and dry cleaning company.  So coming to the surgery is a complete change.  Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and our dog Morgan.  We all enjoy going out for long walks with Morgan up the hills or along the river. I joined the team at Vets4Pets in March I am thoroughly enjoying my job I love meeting new people and all there lovely pets.

I joined the Vets4Pets team in February 2014 after working in finance. I've always had a love for animals and felt like this would be a great role for me. In my spare time I enjoy listening to Lady Gaga, reading, crafting and relaxing at home with my partner and my two cats Marcy + Mac.

Client Service Manager 

After graduating from Stirling University with an honours degree in Accountancy, I started on a management career with Pets at Home.  After 6 years with Pets at Home as an assistant and deputy manager, I have moved to the other side of the vet desk to start as client service manager in March 2013.

When I am not at work I am a mum to a young daughter, 2 miniature schnauzers and a guinea pig.  I am a book worm and enjoy art although I can't even draw a stick man.
