Sonia Stoddart


Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Sonia bio

Unlike a lot of vets, I didn’t grow up knowing I wanted to be a vet and only realised it was the career for me until much later. I grew up in Minnesota in America and worked two jobs growing up: on a farm and in a little privately owned coffee shop. While the farm taught me a lot about the importance of hard work, I will never forget how much I loved getting to know all the regulars at the coffee shop. I graduated from high school and needed to quit these jobs to start my first degree, but never forgot what they taught me. I moved to Wisconsin to study neurobiology at UW Madison. It was here I met my now husband and the adorable little moggie named Lupita (“little wolf”). I graduated there with a first then we three moved to Los Angeles where I worked in a lab studying children’s leukaemia. The work here was so important but I felt very disconnected to the patients I was helping. I thought back to the coffee shop where I got to know everyone that came in and I thought of how much I loved my little wolf. I also thought about how I needed to see the effects my hard work was helping my patients. I decided then I would become a vet. We three then moved to Edinburgh where I studied at the beautiful Dick Vet. I was in one of the last classes to get to go through Summerhall, and one of the first classes to get to go to the new campus in Roslin. I qualified in 2013, spent some time in a busy hospital in Coventry England where I would routinely stay 3-5 hours after my shift to learn new surgeries, place E-T tubes, learn new ways to handle internal medicine challenges, etc. I started with Vets4Pets in 2014 and took over the Corstorphine branch in late 2017. So far, I’m so happy to be here. As I had hoped when going to vet school, my favourite part of being in general practice is meeting new clients and their pets, and I so look forward to getting to know everyone that comes into my room. I’m also currently working on a small animal internal medicine certificate. My other interests in the clinic are ultrasonography, kittens and puppies, clinical pathology, rabbits, general surgery, old animals of all species, anaesthesia and middle aged animals of all species. Outside the clinic, I am mad about cycling, I also enjoy running, cooking, a good podcast, panel shows (panel shows and beans on toast are my favourite UK things!), music and my little old little wolf, Lupita.

Hello! I am Margherita and I‘ve permanently joined Corstorphine’s team since September 2017. I had been here few months before as a locum vet, when I had just moved from Italy, but all the people have been so welcoming and supportive to me that I felt I was in the right place at the right moment. Due to that, I decided to start a new chapter of career and life here in Edinburgh. I graduated in 2015 and since then I have practiced with small animals, who I really love.

My major interests are internal medicine, anesthesia and analgesia, but I like being a GP as well. The thing I prefer the most about my job is being part of pets’ life and be there when they really need. I always try to help them and owners as best as I can and I feel that my role can have a very important impact on their quality of life, that’s why I think it’s “special”.

When I have some free time I like spending it with friends and family, I do enjoy travelling and spend time in nature and expressing my creativity with DIY projects. I like baking and cooking, but most of all I love my pets (you can see the last member of the crew in the picture).

Hi all, I am the newest addition to Vets4pets Corstorphine. I am originally from Canada but have lived in the UK for some time. In the past I have worked as a VCA, vet nurse, and believe it or not, I also have a degree in costume design. I decided to leave the entertainment industry to pursue my dream of becoming a veterinarian, receiving my BSc with a specialist in health and disease from the University of Toronto and graduating with a BVM&S from R(D)SVS in 2020.


I have a keen interest in further developing my knowledge and skillset especially in the areas of soft tissue surgery, diagnostic imaging, nutrition and exotics. When I'm not at work you can find me cooking, painting, sewing or hiking in the Pentlands with my husband and husky Charley or of course at home cuddling my silly Tuxedo cat McTaggart.


I am beyond excited to be a part of such a driven and wonderfully supportive team and cannot wait to meet your little ones!

Rory Corstorphine


Veterinary Surgeon

Read Rory bio

Hello, I’m Rory. I first came to Corstorphine in 2019 as a vet student. Everyone was so lovely and supportive that I decided to do the majority of my University placements here, before joining the team as a fully qualified vet in July 2021!

Growing up in Edinburgh, I didn’t have any pets of my own and didn’t get to spend much time with animals. Due to this, I started volunteering at the city farm and local animal sanctuaries from a young age. This peaked my interest in caring for animals and more specifically for veterinary medicine. Since then I have found my main interests lie in small animal practice. I’m interested in all aspects of GP vet life and very much enjoy meeting all our feline, canine and other small furry patients!

Last year I finally brought home my very own pet, my lovely British Shorthair cat, Angus. Outside of work I enjoy running, cooking and making the most of everything Edinburgh has to offer.

I’m so proud to work for the Corstorphine team and to keep up the excellent standard of care we have, for all our lovely patients.

I joined the team at Vets4Pets Corstorphine in March 2022 and have been enjoying the lovely team and high standard medical care I found here ever since.

I graduated from the University of Barcelona in 2011 and moved to the UK shortly after. I spent a few years up and down the country working in small animal practice and developing my skills until I finally settled in lovely Scotland about 8 years ago. I have since married and started my own family, now completed with Django the cat and my young son and I feel like I can call Edinburgh my home.

I love all aspects of first opinion veterinary medicine and particularly enjoy internal medicine.

I am looking forward to meeting you and your pets.

Hi, I’m Charley and I have just hit my 5 year anniversary at Vets4Pets Corstorphine!
In this time you may have seen me as receptionist, VCA, Practice Manager and now back to VCA. Hopefully heading to Veterinary Student Nurse this September!
I previously worked for the SSPCA as an Animal Care Assistant and I spent 4 years working with Horses before that.
The care of animals is definitely my passion in life and I am so happy to continue it here with the best team ever.
In my spare time I love going on walks, painting and spending time with the lovely people in my life.

Head Veterinary Nurse

Read Stacey bio

I’m the Head Nurse here at Corstorphine Vets4Pets. I am originally from Sunny Blackpool and qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in January 2017. Shortly after qualifying I headed “Down Under” and worked as a veterinary Nurse in Australia where I came across a variety of interesting cases and patients (including a koala and kangaroo). Upon my return to the UK, I volunteered in South East Asia and then started to work in different clinics across the UK, in order to gain different experiences. I then made my way to Scotland and have decided to settle in Edinburgh.
I have had several different careers but feel I have finally found my vocation in life. I love that every day as a vet nurse is different and that I get to help all our lovely patients. You may hear me singing to our patients from time to time as I feel this helps to calm them down although the rest of the team are not quite as appreciative.
I have my own anxious but awesome rescue dog named Bandit, who I couldn’t imagine life without. He can be a very vocal guy and doesn’t like being approached or touched by strangers. I do feel having my own nervous dog has helped me have a greater understanding about behaviour and anxiety in our patients. In my spare time I enjoy going for hikes in the Pentlands with Bandit and then coming home to snuggle on the sofa with him.



Veterinary Nurse

Read Susanne bio

Hi I’m Susanne. I have been with Vet4Pets on and off for three years now during my veterinary nurse training, but as of December I have been employed as a Veterinary nurse with the amazing team at Corstorphine.

Growing up I always knew I wanted to help people and animals, and studied for my degree in human nursing where I worked for 20 plus years. I eventually realised my real calling, was helping animals, and decided to retrain as an animal nurse!

I have two adorable rescue dogs Charlie and Daisy and I also foster animals that need a bit more help. In my spare time I love to spend time with my family, baking, cooking and walking the dogs.

I am known as the “work mum” and I keep all these young ones in place.

Hi, I’m Danielle! I joined the Corstorphine team in 2017 as a Veterinary Care Assistant and have since completed my training and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2021.
This is my dream job and having always had a love for animals I knew that I wanted to work with them from a very young ago. During my training I have developed a passion for exotics nursing of small mammals and anaesthesia.
In my spare time I can be found snuggling on the couch with my Labrador Retriever Raven. I also have 2 rabbits Frankie and Pumpkin, it is in adopting them I found my love for exotic nursing and care. I also enjoy reading books and playing video games on my days off.

Student Veterinary Nurse

Hi, I’m Nina. I joined the Corstorphine team in January 2021 as a student veterinary nurse – and am very excited to be training on the job and working towards becoming a registered veterinary nurse! I have three pet rats (who are very food orientated and love to climb and explore). I also consider my parent’s dog Milo as one of my pets despite having moved away from home. 

In my spare time I like to read, my rats are named after some of my favourite authors: Orwell, Austen, and Salinger. I’m a movie fanatic who enjoys a good superhero film, and when I’m not reading or watching films, you might find me going for long walks in and around Edinburgh.

Hi! my name is Afton and I joined the Corstorphine team in December 2018 as Client Care Advisor but have recently moved to the clinical team as a Veterinary Care Assistant and have loved every minute since.

I have always been an avid animal lover from a very young and grew up with both dogs and hamsters as well as the more unusual hawks, bearded dragons and piranha!! However when I turned 18 I bought my very first pet in my name, my little bunny Fiver from Corstorphine, where I had his health check and vaccs. Little did I know I would be working for this dedicated team 2 years later!!

In my spare time I am an avid bookworm, but I mostly spend my spare time hanging out with my cats Toothless and Newt and my snake Morpheus.

I’ve always had a love for animals which started with a fascination for catching ladybugs in my garden and then accidentally letting them loose in the house.

I went on to get my BSc in Animal Biology and always wanted to find a job where I could help in some way with animals and I love being able to do so at the vets! Meeting everyone’s beloved pets is the highlight of my day.

The only pet I have space for in my tiny home right now is my corn snake but have plans to expand the family with a furry creature ASAP.

Working front of house at Vets4Pets is great as I get to meet clients with their adorable pets and hear all of their stories.

Outside of work, I am either at a gig or spending time with my cats, Alfie & Salem.

Client Care Advisor

Read Holly bio

Hi, I’m Holly! I’m quite new to the team here at Corstorphine as I was previously an Early Years Practitioner at a busy Nursery in Edinburgh. However, I’ve decided to follow my dream of working with animals, hopefully progressing to veterinary nursing in the future! I have a passion for learning, going to college to study professional cookery, counselling, criminology, sociology and my HNC in childhood practice. Recently I had the amazing opportunity to stay on a farm and help deliver the lambs which has driven me more to learn about the animal world! In my spare time you’ll find me cooking, horse riding or spending time with my Corgi, Yuri and my two bunnies Daisy and Peach.
