I qualified from Glasgow Vet School in 2000 and have been working in small animal practices in Ayrshire since then. I have been a partner at Vets4Pets Ayr since 2011 and have recently become a partner at Vets4pets Irvine. I aim to provide an excellent standard of veterinary care to our patients and look forward to meeting you. I enjoy all aspects of my work but have a particular interest in all types of surgery and rabbit medicine. Outside work I enjoy riding my horse Obi and relaxing at home with my dogs Blue a red collie, Beryl the merle collie, Harry the rescue cat and my ever expanding collection of chickens!

I qualified from Edinburgh Vet School in 2009 and have been working in small animal practice ever since. I began my career in a large veterinary hospital in West Yorkshire and stayed there for three years before returning to Scotland. I joined the team at Vets4Pets in September 2013. I’m really enjoying being back at home in Ayrshire and getting to know our clients. I enjoy all aspects of small animal work but am particularly interested in feline medical cases. At home I have two cats, Harry and Jack, who I rescued during my time in Yorkshire.

Hi I'm Catherine one of the vets - this is me with our black lab Inca. We also have a very spoiled silver tabby called Purdey. I love being part of the Vets4Pets team at Ayr and Irvine, even though I only work as a vet part time. The rest of my time is spent being a Biology teacher at Wellington School in Ayr. When I first graduated I worked with my dad, Clif Botcherby, until he retired - it was him who inspired me to become a vet right from when I was a wee girl and he took me out on farm calls with him. I also worked with Christian Veterinary Mission in Haiti, Nepal and Uganda.

Hi I'm Melanie.

I am a Registered Veterinary Nurse who qualified in August 2016 from Barony College. I trained at Edinburgh Vet School for 2 years and have since worked in a local mixed vet practice and joined the Vets4Pets team in June 2017.

Outside of work I am kept busy with my array of pets, my 5 year old Alaskan Malamute Rufus, my Syrian Hamster Edward, my 3 year old horse Jax, 5 year old Shetland Pony Toby and 4 year old Miniature Shetland Pony Hamish (who came all the way from Shetland!) and recently my new kitten Fred who I took on after he was abandoned at around 7 weeks old!

Hi, my name is Grace and I’m one of the registered veterinary nurses here at Vets4Pets Ayr. I started here in practice several years ago on work experience at school, and was able to follow my passion in helping to care for animals when I trained here to be a veterinary nurse, and qualified in November 2018.

I love all aspects of my work, as each day brings many different patients to care for, but I do have particular interests in anaesthesia and radiography.

I have recently adopted my little lunatic Luna from our local Cats Protection, so I spend most of my free time keeping her entertained. I also love to take my family German Shepherds Sascha and Kaiser out for a run around.

I have been a nurse for 35 years now, worked originally in a single handed practice, mixed practice and finally a SA hospital in my hometown of Burnley, Lancashire.

I ran the nurse clinic inside the hospital for 20 years and finally made the long awaited move to Scotland 3 weeks ago hoping for a change of pace and lifestyle.

I have 2 grown up daughters, Mia 26 and Eve 21, an 8 year old Boston terrier called Betty and a teeny tiny 3 year old black cat called Creepy.

I love swimming, music and the adventure of outdoors. I play the piano and the drums and I have a couple of motorbikes to ride when the weather permits.

I was a dancer for 25 years but prefer to kick my heels up with friends and a glass of prosecco nowadays.

I am very much looking forward to the challenges of my new role at Vets 4 pets, and serving the people of my newly adopted town.

Hi, I’m Shona a student veterinary nurse at the Vets4Pets Ayr branch.  I joined the team on a university placement in May 2022.  I am from a dairy farm in a small village called Auchenmalg in Dumfries and Galloway, however I have moved up to Ayrshire to complete my placement year.

 

I am studying a degree in veterinary nursing at the SRUC Barony in Dumfries, which I am in my third and final year of and cannot wait to hopefully become a registered nurse next year.

 

Prior to this placement I worked in a mixed veterinary practice back home for 3 years which was very different to Vets4Pets, but I love working at them both equally.  At home you will find me with my collie Roy, one of my cats, Kitty, Mouldy, Snowy and Tigger, or cuddling our cows and sheep, I also enjoy baking and hill walking but only when the weather is nice!

I joined the team in October 2013 and have never looked back! Prior to this I spent nine years in retail management and feel lucky to be able to combine my skills with my love for animals. Every day in practice is challenging yet very rewarding. I love meeting all our clients and their furry friends and can often be found in the reception area getting cuddles from our patients. I feel privileged to be able to work with such an amazing team of Vets, Nurses and Client Care Representatives, their passion and dedication never fails to amaze me. At home I have a four year old son and a crazy Ragdoll x Cat called Mr Boo, between them I am kept very busy.

Hi I’m Laura.

I am the client services manager here at the Ayr branch. I started as a part time receptionist in 2012 and gradually increased my hours to full time. I did some animal care here in the practice but missed being out on the desk dealing with our amazing clients and their pets. I was then promoted to client services manager 4 years ago and absolutely love my role. I have an amazing team of girls to lead. I love that each day is different and to say it is challenging at times is an understatement but I love it and could never see myself doing anything else. I love all of our clients and adore their pets.

I also organise our charity events throughout the year. I absolutely love seeing everything come together and raising money for incredible charities. Our most recent event was in aid of Whiteleys Retreat which was one of our best events to date!.

At home I have a handsome 4 year old Lhasa-x called Chase (my nephew Brody named him). Chase thinks he is human! He is my world and he is a regular on our Facebook page due to his mischievous side.
