Meet the team
I graduated from The 'Dick and worked in mixed practice in the Cotswolds, until moving to work in Zimbabwe. After having my children, I resumed small animal practice work in and around Perth, interspersed with voluntary work in Greece and with the World Veterinary Service in Africa, India and the Caribbean.
I have a keen interest in Feline medicine and Ophthalmology and have gained additional qualifications in both of these areas. From a young age I always wanted to be a Vet and would bring home stray kittens and spend all my time working in riding stables.
For many years, I also bred Blackface sheep. In my spare time I still enjoy riding, playing racket sports, walking with my 13 year old dog Lemon, swimming and gardening.
Conor is originally from Cumbria in the north of England and qualified as a vet in 2015 from The University of Liverpool. Since then Conor has undertaken both a MSc and then a PhD at the University of Edinburgh studying and undertaking research into a variety of infectious diseases of dogs and cats. Conor really enjoys the daily variety of general practice but has a particular passion for internal medicine and of course the infectious diseases which continue to be an area of ongoing active clinical research.
Having understandably fallen in love with Scotland Conor has never left! Since his PhD he has worked in a number of Vets4Pets practices along the East coast so you may have already seen him about. Conor is really looking forward to opening the Perth practice and to be part of the very exciting and new challenge. On a day off Conor likes to spend time in the kitchen, finding cooking very relaxing and occasionally even tasty!
Jim complete his schooling in Kenya then he qualified at vet school in Edinburgh, he has a keen interest in exotic pets. After qualifying Jim owned a vet practice in Hampshire for many years, then he came to Scotland and worked as a locum vet until he joined Vets4Pets Perth in 2018.
I qualified in 2017 from SRUC Barony Campus, Dumrfies, with a HND in Veterinary Nursing.
Before qualifying, I worked at the Barony College as an Animal Technician and conducted a two year student placement at Charnwood Veterinary Centre in Dumfries, in addition to completing work experience at Dryfe & Ark Vets in Lockerbie and Ashlea Vets in Carlise.
Prior to this, I worked at Abbey Green Vets in the Cotswolds, as a Veterinary Nursing Assistant and at Pershore College as an Animal Technician, where I cared for a wide range of animals including, Snakes, Frogs, Spiders, Birds, Rodents, Pigs, Sheep, Goats and even Llamas.
For a little over a year, I lived, worked and travelled around Scandinavia, helping remote farms care for their animals and grow organic food.
I recently lost my 17yr old Collie x and now I have a young Border Collie x Spaniel, a big ginger tabby cat, three naughty hens & a noisy cockerel.
I have a real passion for Animal Behaviour and studied Canine and Feline Behaviour and Psychology as part of my HND in Animal Welfare and Management qualification. My other interests include Consult Nursing, Senior and Palliative care, Arthritis management, Dental hygiene, Wound management and Rabbit, Guinea-pig and Hamster health and welfare.
In my spare time, I enjoy re-enactment of Viking and Pictish history and travel to Scandinavia each year to visit friends and attend Viking festivals.
When asked why I became a Veterinary Nurse, I said, '' I have been around animals all my life, they are my greatest passion and I wanted a rewarding career where I could work and care for animals all day and contribute to making a difference to their lives; no day is ever the same and I wouldn’t have it any other way'.
Hello, I'm Alison and in August 2016 graduated into the world of veterinary nursing. I have previous experience practising in referral centres, emergency and critical care and now general practice. I enjoy all aspects of the job including radiography, anaesthesiology and laboratory diagnostics. I also share a particular interest in emergency and critical care and have training within this particular field.
I currently have a guinea pig called Chesney and a West Highland White Terrier called Alfie - who lives up to his westitude!
I have just recently qualified as a veterinary nurse, after completing my training over the past two and a half years with the Vets4Pets Perth team. During my training we had to relocate due to the fire and also adapt in how we do our job due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I would not have achieved my dream without this team, we are all so dedicated to and passionate about improving animal welfare and ensuring we always deliver the highest standard of care to your pets.
Becoming a RVN is the biggest accomplishment of my life as I love caring for animals and helping owners through their pets surgery and health conditions. I have a special interest in supporting owners with their pets long term illness’ such as obesity, diabetes and arthritis. I hope to be a confidante for owners and the biggest advocate for animals and their well-being both physically and emotionally. Animal behaviour is becoming more of a passion of mine thanks to our Head RVN Flo and I hope to gather more knowledge and a deeper understanding of our pets emotional needs, to enable me to provide better care in the hospital and advice for owners at home. I can’t wait to see everyone in Perth!!
I have worked for Vets4pets for 3 years now. I cannot believe where the time has gone. I love meeting our clients and their fur babies and taking them through their journey with us.
Outside of work I have a wee rescue dog called Teddy he’s 5 years old. I like to take him for long walks. I also like to do some crafts and at the moment I am into crocheting
I started working at Vets4pets in August 2018 as a Client Care Advisor. I had never worked as a receptionist before but from my previous jobs I have always enjoyed working with the public and it’s even better now as I get to meet all the clients along with their furry friends!
My friends and family all know me as being a huge animal lover and I always sneak through the back of the practice to get cuddles from all the animals.
I have a beautiful greyhound called Jessie, she is just 15months old and a bundle of madness!
I have 2 long haired guinea pigs called Carrot & Parsnip, they are around 2 years old which I adopted through Pets at Home and finally I have 2 rabbits called Theo & Clyde who are both around 5 years old now
