Veterinary Surgeons


Read Drs John & Sheila Smith bio

We both graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 2010 and started out working in veterinary hospitals in England before returning home to work in and around Aberdeen for the past 7 years. We are proud owners of Vets4Pets Aberdeen & Bridge of Don and aim to provide our patients with the best possible care. Between us we have a variety of interests. John is adept in the treatment and handling of feathery and scaly creatures along with his keen interest in surgery. Sheila enjoys all aspects of general practice especially getting to know the clients and their furry friends. Outside of work we can be found gardening, baking and doing DIY whilst entertaining our 2 young children (Isabelle & Oliver) Molly the cat, Daisy the dog and our small flock of free range chickens.

Read Sheila Smith bio

Hello, I'm Sheila. I've worked as a Vet in small animal practice, in various UK locations since graduating in 2010 from Glasgow Vet School. I enjoy the variety of first opinion work, especially getting to know clients and their furry companions. I also have an interest in companion animal behaviour.

Outside of vet life I can usually be found spending time with my family at home, in the beautiful Scottish countryside, often running after our 2 young kids, our dog Daisy and Dobby the Sphnyx cat. In my spare time I enjoy baking, running and most of all, holidays in the sunshine

I am currently a first year Student Veterinary Nurse about to start my second year at SRUC; I am excited to progress towards becoming a Registered Veterinary Nurse. I was a Veterinary Care Assistant in the Aberdeen branch of Vets4Pets and decided to progress towards Veterinary Nursing. I have worked at Bridge of Don Vets4Pets since we opened in February 2018.

I started with Vet4Pets in August 2016 following working 4 years in Pets at Home and completing a HND in Animal Care at North East Scotland Collage. I have always had a passion for caring for pets of all sizes. At home I have a Dwarf Hamster, Guinea Pigs, Fish and a Cat at home.

I am very excited to be taking the next step in my career, I hope to continue to see the clients and their pets at the practice and aid in giving your pets the best care we can! I have a keen interest in emergency and critical care, nursing clinics and improving the quality of care in practice for our patients.  



Read Janet bio

Hi my name is Janet. I am looking forward to meeting both you and your pets when you come to visit the Vets4Pets at the Bridge of Don store. I am one of the part time receptionist team that will greet you when you visit or even come for just a look around the practice.

I have worked in the veterinary world for 19 years, first in Kendal which was both small and large animal practice. I then moved to Aberdeen with husband’s job and worked at a local practice for 9 years. Following a little time off, I am ready for a new and exciting adventure at Bridge of Don Vets4Pets and hope to see you soon.

Outside work I like walking our dog Sally the Springer spaniel on the beach and in the woods. I also like reading, swimming and gardening. When I lived in Kendal we had hens, a goat, 2 pet lambs, 2 geese and a dog and, if the back door got left open, the hens would be in the kitchen eating the dog’s food. I like all types of animals apart from snakes (so will hide if they come in). Look forward to seeing you all soon.

Vets4Pets Aberdeen Bridge of Don 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!
