Hi I’m Tessa, I qualified as a vet from the R(D)SVS in 2009 and have since enjoyed working around the UK in small animal practice. Before moving back to Edinburgh in 2017, I was a clinical director of two busy veterinary hospitals in Liverpool where I also obtained a Certificate in Small Animal Medicine. I now work part-time with the fabulous Vets4Pets Straiton team whilst completing a PhD in tissue engineering at the Roslin Institute. In my spare time I enjoy long-distance trail running, cuddling my one-eyed rescue cat and slowly renovating an old cottage with my partner Martyn

Hi, I’m Conor! I joined the practice in October 2019 although I have been with Vets4Pets Perth since April 2016. I graduated from Liverpool Vet School in 2015. Along with my veterinary work in the practice I have continued my university studies, completing and MSc and PhD. I enjoy all aspects of companion animal medicine and my specific area of interest (and research) is infectious diseases - particularly those that can spread between pets and their owners (and back again!).

Hi, I’m Eva. I graduated from the Aristotle University in Thessaloniki in Greece in 2015. Driven by an interest in animal behaviour and welfare,  I came to the UK in September 2016  and was awarded a MSc degree in Clinical Animal Behaviour by the University of Lincoln. Since then, I have worked in small animal practice in Greece and the South of England. I joined the Straiton Vets4Pets team in September 2019 and I am currently working towards a certificate in Feline Internal Medicine. Apart from cuddling cats, I enjoy travelling, drawing and sewing in my spare time.

Hello, I am Katia, Student veterinary Nurse at Vets4Pets Straiton. My journey with Vets 4 Pets Straiton began in February 2018 when I was doing work experience, and I was lucky enough to officially join the team in January 2019.
In my previous life I was in Business Development for one of Edinburgh’s largest universities. However, animals have always been my passion so I decided to follow my childhood dream of working and helping our furry (and scaly and feathery!) companions.
In my free time I enjoy cycling and spending time with friends, family and my precious cat!

Hi, I’m Alice, I have worked at Vets4Pets Straiton for over a year now as a Veterinary Care Assistant. I have always loved animals and looking after them – I especially love cats and have my own one called Sid who is now 7! My hobbies outside of work include walking and seeing my friends and family.

Hi, I'm David, I'm a Student Veterinary Nurse in the Straiton team. After working for 12 years in IT and 6 years as a stay at home parent, I decided to follow my childhood dream of working with animals.

I began by doing work experience at the practice and was welcomed as part of the team from day 1. I have learned so much from working with such amazing and caring people and am looking forward to what will hopefully be a long career in the veterinary profession.

Outside of work I spend time with my family and try to find time to play my guitars (much to my children's displeasure!).

I joined Vets4Pets in March 2018, a completely new direction for me (away from Pension, Insurance, Banking and Recruitment) after I decided that I wanted to spend my working hours doing something interesting, fun and rewarding. And it is! I’m an animal lover, and my 8 year old cat Fergus is a great pal. Out of work, I enjoy boot camp (once it’s over!), socialising with family & friends, helping out my (adult) kids and travelling. I've recently joined the practice at Straiton from Fort Kinnaird and am enjoying settling in. 

Vets4Pets Straiton (Pentland) 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!

The friendly team can't wait to meet all of their new clients!
