Meet the team
My name is Emma Gatenby and I qualified from the University of Edinburgh in 2013. I had always known that I wanted to be a vet ever since I could remember and I worked hard to get into vet school as soon as I left my final year of high school. After several years working as a general practitioner in small animal practice I decided to become a Joint Venture Partner with Vets4Pets after having worked at another practice since 2016.
I am currently studying for a certificate in advanced veterinary practice and am very interested in canine and feline medicine. I particularly enjoy endocrinology and gastroenterology as these cases are often challenging and treatment can make a real difference to the lives of the animals and their owners.
I live at home with my bear dog Kobi and my crazy cats, Kai and Damon. I also love reptiles and have 3 snakes.
My name is Lucy Goddard. I qualified from Edinburgh Napier University in 2020 and have been working at Craigleith ever since.
I have four dogs and in my spare time enjoy taking them walks. I have just welcomed a new puppy into the family whose name is Kiwi.
Aimee has been working in practice since 2009 and qualified from Edinburgh’s Telford College in 2013 after completing placements at a small animal practice in Edinburgh and GUVS Small Animal Hospital.
She has worked at Vets4Pets since qualifying. She has a very keen interest in feline nursing and a soft spot for geriatric feline patients in particular.
She completed the ISFM Certificate of Feline Nursing with distinction in 2018.
In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family and friends and is kept on her toes with her young daughter and her cat, Poppy.
After serving Queen & Country for 26 years as a Senior Supply & Logistics Officer in the Royal Fleet Auxiliary, seeing combat in the Falklands Conflict and the first Gulf War, and as a Staff Officer at Portsmouth Naval Base for the last 7 years of my career, I decided to come ashore in 2003, for the quiet life and to spend more time with the family.
Of course life isn't like that and after working as a broadband tech for O2, customer service with the likes of Amazon, Sky and British Gas, as well as owning and operating several businesses, I finally found myself inside the veterinary profession as a complete wide eyed newbie.
Massive learning curve later our practice has now been growing for the last 4 years and I am greatly enjoying this latest part of my life.
The family have always had dogs, usually a wee Yorkie, but we have had a couple of large German Shepherds too in recent years.
No pets in my home currently but I still get to "share" my daughters dog, two cats and three snakes on occasion.
Client Care Advisor
I am a recent graduate of Psychology and Sociology at Edinburgh Napier University. All my life I have been surrounded by and loved by animals. While I decided not to pursue veterinary sciences, I have spent my adult life giving that love back by providing pet sitting/boarding service, deeply enjoying every second I spend with animals.
In my free time I do my best to keep a little active by enjoying the occasional hike or a short session at the gym. I am an old soul who loves to listen to some 70s music while knitting or crocheting. I am unfortunately not an animal mum yet but I cannot wait to bring home a fur baby of my own one day.
Since starting my job as a Client Care Advisor at Craigleith Vets4Pets, I have already learn so many new, interesting things and met so many lovely people and animals. I know that visits to the vet can often be stressful and worry-some and that’s why I hope to make this experience a little better along the way. Our clinical stuff truly does go above and beyond to provide the best service possible to your beloved fur babies and I am proud of being a part of the team
Hi! I’m Siena one of the client care advisors here at Craigleith.
Growing up in both Australia and Asia, animals (including those of the slithering variety!) were ever present in my life. I was a dedicated viewer of Animal Planet as a child and spent many an evening frog-spotting. As such I have developed a real love for amphibians and reptiles.
I have owned a number of pets myself from fish to rabbits to terrapins!
My true soulmate was my childhood dog - a miniature schnauzer who passed away at the grand age of 16. Because of my deep connection to him I truly understand how much pets mean to us all - they are truly members of the family. I know all too well how apprehensive you (and your pet!) may be about a Vet visit and my hope is to ensure both you and your companion are treated with the utmost care and compassion here at Vets4Pets Craigleith.
Currently I have a cheeky wee cat called Maya! She is full of energy and personality and definitely keeps me on my toes!
I’ve worked for a number of practices now with only one goal in mind🙂 to become a vet nurse. I love all kinds of animals, dogs being a particular favourite. Close to my heart are my two shown in the picture - Lucy and Jessie. I always strive to deliver the best standard of care for your pet on a daily basis.
In my spare time I listen and play a lot of music, I play guitar. I also enjoy long walks and going home to visit my family and dogs.”
After spending 4 years in the Royal Air Force I've chosen to follow my dream to become a veterinary surgeon. I started working at vets4pets in December 2022 and have enjoyed every minute of it so far.
On a sunny day a little bit of surfing always gets me in a good mood, while on a rainy day I often dive into the world of fantasy. However, come rain or sunshine I will never say no to a good Nandos date.
I hope to be working here through my journey in veterinary Medicine. I have a 6 month old Pembroke corgi named Yuri who with me has settled into the team here at Craigleith well.
Vets4Pets Craigleith is committed to bringing you affordable, high quality care via a modern, well equipped practice, including a lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray and ultrasound. Plus, on site car parking too!
