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.

I qualified from University College Dublin in 2013. I moved to Scotland and joined the Vets4Pets team in Ayr in September 2017 after 4 years in a mixed practice in Northern Ireland.

I am really enjoying getting to know all of our pets and their owners, and delivering the highest level of care. I have a particular interest in the care of geriatric patients and ophthalmology.

When not at work I can usually be found in, on or beside the sea, sailing, kayaking, scuba diving or horse riding.

After graduating from Glasgow Vet School in 2016 I worked in a small animal centre in Kilmarnock with a particular focus on emergency and critical care, before moving to Vets 4 Pets Ayr in August 2017 to further build my skills in medicine and surgery. I have a particular interest in internal medicine and anaesthesia, and particularly enjoy working up challenging medical cases.

I currently live in Kilmarnock with my husband, son, labrador and rescue cat. Outside of work I enjoy climbing mountains with my dog and cuddling up on the sofa with a good book and a cup of tea.

Hi my name is Julie-Anne and I’m a Registered Veterinary Nurse.

I joined the practice in October 2015.  After a knee injury I struggled to deal with larger dogs and quickly realised I had an affinity for cats so have been working towards making our practice cat friendly and have become known as the "cat nurse" in the practice.  I started working towards my Feline Nursing Certificate in 2019 and will hopefully have completed it by the start of 2020.

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.

I joined the team in September 2012 as receptionist I was promoted to senior receptionist in 2015 and absolutely love my new role I love assisting in the care and dedication our team puts in daily. Previously I was a student at oatridge agricultural college where I have qualifications in horse management before starting with vets4pets I was formally a riding instructor for 5 years i love working with animals and people. Through working in the practice I rehomed my 3 legged cat toto he came into us at 7 weeks old through south Ayrshire cats protection to have his front leg amputated due to a deformed limb I instantly fell in love and 2 years later is thriving.

Hi my name is Ashleigh and I just recently joined the team in July 2018. I have always had a love for animals and was studying to become a zoologist before taking some time out to extend our family. Just now I am loving having a job where I can be around animals all day long and getting to know our clients. At home I have an 8 month old girl and two little dogs called Percy and Sooty. Believe me when I say the dogs are more work than my little girl!

Client Care Advisor

Hi, 

Im Bexx & I joined the team in March 2016. Originally from Falkirk I moved to Ayrshire in 2014 bringing my black & white cat with me, Cookie. I love chatting with our clients, meeting their pets & making a fuss of them. The role is so rewarding.

Over the years I have gained a few more felines with my partner (luckily he is a cat man) & currently have a pack of 9! You could call me the crazy cat lady of the practice. I have four rescue domestic short hairs - Cookie, Rogue, Valentine & Buffy. Two Siberian Neva Masquerade sisters - Sakura & Mikasa & three Persian brothers - Sebastian, Fawkes & Mr Migi. My daughter thinks she is living the cat dream (as do we).

In my spare time I can be found on the couch surrounded by my pack (cats & humans) enjoying a good tv show, cooking, out drinking coffee with friends or travelling to compete in cat shows with Sebastian.
