I'm Michelle, your Practice Partner and Senior Vet in the practice. I graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 2005, and moved to Lancashire where I spent 9 years in small animal practice. Four years after qualifying, I became the sole practitioner in a branch surgery of a busy referral hospital and had the opportunity to spend time working alongside many specialists in their field. In 2015, I became the partner at Newton Mearns Vets4Pets and now we have recently moved to Glasgow Pollokshaws Vets4Pets. I am very proud of what we have achieved and am thankful for the incredibly hard working team we have who keep the practice running with their knowledge and expertise to keep your pets healthy. Client, patient care and client continuity is very important to me and I particularly enjoy developing trusting relationships with both clients and patients. I enjoy working up medical cases, have an interest in rabbit health and although I love seeing all furry friends, have a secret love for cats! I absolutely love being a vet, and although some days can be challenging, I love being part of such a great team who are highly committed to providing the very best care for your pets. I live in the West end of Glasgow with my husband, our 18 month old son, Thomas and our 2 mischievous cats, Alfie and Louie, who are slowly accepting that we have a new addition to our family! When I'm not looking after patients, I am most often found running around after my little boy! I also enjoy spending time with family and friends, keeping fit, travelling and cooking.

I’m Lauren, one of your vets, and I was delighted to join Vets4Pets in November 2019, shortly after graduating from the University of Edinburgh. 

 

I am really enjoying getting to know you all and caring for your lovely animals. I definitely have a soft spot for labradors, and more recently golden retrievers, since my sister got her puppy(pictured!). 

 

I grew up on a farm on the Isle of Arran so I have always been surrounded by animals. We currently have sheep, chickens, horses and a black labrador at home. 

 

Outside of work I enjoy running, riding my horse and competing in triathlons.

I'm Lucy and I joined the Vets4Pets Pollokshaws team as Head Nurse in April 2020.

I started my Veterinary Nurse training in 2002 and qualified in 2005.  Over the last 18 years I have worked in a variety of first opinion, charity, emergency critical care and referral practices, in both permanent and locum roles.

 My particular areas of interest are anaesthesia, surgical nursing and inpatient care.  I also enjoy learning new skills and keeping up-to-date with developments in the profession.

Most of all I love spending time with my patients and looking after them to the best of my ability.  I feel very lucky to have a career that I love, it really is a privilege to care for animals and it brings me a lot of happiness.

 Prior to my life as an RVN, I studied Zoology at the University of London, close to where I grew up in Surrey.  I moved to Glasgow in 2005 and currently live in Helensburgh with my husband.  Outside of work I can be found hill-walking, doing yoga, getting lost in a good book and planning travel adventures.

I knew I always wanted to work with animals and studied Animal Biology at Glasgow University before attending Edinburgh College to gain my Level £ Diploma in Veterinary Nursing in 2014.  Since qualifying I have attended a number of different courses to improve my nursing skills and hope to complete a certificate in Surgical Nursing.

I joined the Vets4Pets team in Pollokshaws at the start of 2020 after taking a year off  maternity leave to spend time with my daughter and I also got to spend more time with my furbaby Rosie. Being a Sprocker Spaniel she is full of beans and hugs and is a great companion.  As much as I love most animal, Spaniels definitely hold a special place in my heart.

I love my job and look forward to working with you all in the future.

I have recently joined Vets 4 Pets in August 2018, prior to starting I have worked within a veterinary practice for the last 8 years, starting off as a receptionist then as a qualified veterinary care assistant. I qualified as a veterinary care assistant in 2015 in Edinburgh and I am now continuing my studies to become a registered veterinary nurse. I recently bought my own house and live locally. I stay with my partner Blair and my one year old son, Casey. We have a house full of animals including dogs, cats, marine fish, horses and a royal python. Never too many animals. Outside of work, I am usually spending as much time with family and friends. I also enjoy competing my horse on a regular basis.

I have recently joined the Vets4Pets team in May 2019 after finishing 6th year of High School, although, you may have seen me before as I have been coming to the practice since 2017 for work experience.

I love all animals and getting to know each of their different personalities, I have previously had 2 bunnies called Molly and Patch and a wee cavachon called Lottie who is 3 and is absolutely spoiled rotten but loves it!!                                           

I have always wanted to be a vet and hope to one day achieve this, although for now I love meeting you and your pets and welcoming you to our practice.  ​

I joined Vets4Pets Pollokshaws in February 2020, and have greatly enjoyed it, I love meeting all our cute and interesting patients and getting to know their owners. I love all animals. I have a dog called Bubbles who is a Jack Russell cross Pomeranian, and I previously had horses. I still occasionally ride my sisters horse which is great because it’s my favourite hobbie but still gives me time to study. I am studying law at university and I hope to be able to use my degree to aid in the protection and welfare of animals.

Hello, I'm Shaun and I joined this practice in February 2020 after wanting a career change and go back to my core passion of animals. Michelle and the team treated my family dog, Lulu, until she passed away at the good age of 16 in 2018. I was so amazed by the treatment and care, that it inspired me to change careers and apply to work here.

 

My family and I have a new addition to the family, Juno, who has a very cheeky personality and loves fetching the biggest stick she can find. In my spare time I love to read, watch films, play video games and also have recently taken up roller skating.  

 

To be able to say I love my job and have such fulfilment is a privilege. I love getting to know all your wonderful pets and being there to support them. Not to mention the cuddles!

Vets4Pets Pollokshaws 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!
