We are open for essential care only

In line with government guidelines, we are only offering medically essential appointments, so please contact the practice team before travelling. Our opening hours may also vary, so please monitor our webpage to keep up to date with the latest information.

We are taking steps to help keep you and our colleagues safe:

  • If you do need to visit, we ask that only one person per pet comes along, to help reduce the number of people in the waiting area at any one time.
  • Social distancing is crucial at this time. When arriving, you may be required to call ahead and wait to be invited in by a member of our team. You will be informed if this is necessary when you call us to make your appointment.
  • Once inside the practice, we ask that you please respect a two metre distance from our colleagues and other clients.
  • We are only accepting card payments to help minimise contact between you and our colleagues.
  • If you can’t visit the practice and are concerned about your pet’s health, please contact us to discuss available options.

We will continue to share regular updates here and on our Facebook page. We thank you for your patience at this time.

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 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 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 was absolutely thrilled when asked to join my work colleagues at the Newton Mearns Vets4Pets practice in October 2014. I have previously worked in a myriad of job sectors but definitely consider this to be the pinnacle of my career! Sadly, last year I lost my dog gizmo. My wee man Gizz is sorely missed and working here has shown me why people keep pets- unconditional love...and what better place to work than a vets, to help give back what our pets give to us! My husband is being gently warmed to the idea of a new doggie in the household!

In July 2018 I was promoted to the Practice Manager which has given me lots of new challenges. I have always enjoyed being with animals so this was the perfect job for me to move into. I have a Labrador called Bonnie but I have also had horses,goldfish and even stick insects! In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, cycling and travelling.

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.  ‚Äč
