Hello, I'm Shauni, I am a Student Veterinary Nurse at Straiton Vets4Pets, and I have been part of the Vets4Pets family since December 2017 and have loved every minute of it! I love working with a team as passionate about animal welfare as I am and I love coming into work each day. I am at the very beginning of my career in becoming a Registered Veterinary Nurse and cannot think of a more rewarding role. When I'm not studying, my spare time is filled with visiting family and friends back in my home town, South Shields, going for walks around this beautiful city, and relaxing with friends.

Hi, I’m Wiola and I’m a Student Veterinary Nurse. I have been working with Vets4Pets Straiton since July 2016, and I am really glad to share similar interests with my work colleagues, who always make me feel like a member of family. Travelling is my passion. Out of all my trips, I was the most impressed by seeing wild terrapins in their natural environment in the Dominican Republic. This was special to me, as I myself am lucky to own, a 12-year old terrapin called Piti. But that’s not all of my pet family. I have a talented cat called Zazu, who loves to bring me back sticks like a dog! I’m looking forward to meeting you and your pets!

Hi, I’m Alice, I have worked at Vets4Pets Straiton for over a year now as a Veterinary Care Assistant.

Kelly

Veterinary Care Assistant

Read Kelly bio

Hi I’m Kelly. I qualified as a Veterinary Care Assistant in 2015 from Edinburgh College and I am currently studying to be a Veterinary Nurse at Edinburgh Napier University. I own a 6 year old Siberian Husky called Meishka, who I dote on hand a foot! All it takes is a small head tilt and big sad puppy eyes and she gets whatever she wants, usually the odd digestive biscuit. My passion for taking care of animals started with Meishka, when I took care of her as a puppy and that passion has since built up to make sure that every animal I look after leaves happy and healthy! I was really excited to work for the Vets4Pets team, and they have only made my dream job of working as part of a Veterinary team into reality. When I’m not gallivanting around the countryside with Meishka or looking after animals, I can usually be found curled up with a cup of tea and a good book, I am partial to Sci-fi and Fantasy novels with the odd biography thrown in! I also love to play video games when I get the chance and enjoy beating my friends at racing games. I am really looking forward to working alongside the Straiton Vets4Pets team and hoping to further my career in the Veterinary workplace.

Hello I’m Daryl. I’ve worked as a veterinary care assistant as well as a client services colleague at both the Bonnyrigg & Straiton practices since Fall 2017. I am studying as a veterinary student at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies and have a passion for small animal surgery and oncology. I have three German Shepherds & a Tibetan Mastiff at home which I brought with me from my previous career as a dog trainer in the US. When I’m not working or studying I love hiking with the dogs, riding horses, and I’m a volunteer English teacher for non-native speakers.

Hi my name is Caitlin, I’ve only just started working at Vets4Pets. I’m a third year vet student here in Edinburgh, and am originally from the United States. While I don’t have any pets at the moment, I try to squeeze in as many animal cuddles as possible while at work. In my free time I like to travel, cook, read and explore the city. I’m loving my time with the team in Straiton and look forward to more time with them.

Collette

Practice Manager

Read Collette bio

Hi, I’m Collette. I became part of the Vets4Pets client service team in September 2015. Prior to working at our practice, I spent 13 years with Pets At Home moving from a part-time colleague whilst still at high school to becoming part of the store management team. I hold a City And Guilds qualification in Pet Store Management, an OATA certificate and I am a qualified C-SQP. In December 2017, I became part of the Bonnyrigg team and I look forward to the next chapter in my Vets4Pets career. At home, I have 3 cats who are Felix, Ace, and Jess. A Syrian hamster called Digger and a bearded dragon called Oscar. In my spare time, I enjoy cycling with my family, a spot of gardening and catching up on my favourite TV shows! I am passionate about offering a compassionate experience and gold standard of care to the pets (and humans!) we have the opportunity to look after.

David

Veterinary Care Assistant

Read David bio

Hi, I'm David, I'm a VCA 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!).

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!
