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.

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.

I qualified from Glasgow University in 2015 and started working in Ireland shortly after. I have just returned home to Ayrshire after spending 2 years in Northern Ireland working in mixed practice. Although I loved working in mixed practice my passion lies with small animals so I am looking forward to being able to focus my time on both medicine and surgery cases.

At home I have a dog Tillie who I rescued from a local charity a few years ago.

I am excited to be back home and cannot wait to meet all our clients.

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.

Head Registered Veterinary Nurse

Read Jemma Curran bio

Hi I’m Jemma, I became the Head nurse here at Ayr in January.

It’s by far been the most challenging time of my whole career. I’ve been working with animals for 20 years now and the time has flown by but I’ve loved every minute. I’m crazy about dogs and love all the cuddles I get looking after them.

I’m highly motivated to provide gold standards in patient care and loved the role I played in gaining the practice our royal college of veterinary surgeons accreditation. I have a keen interest in canine physiotherapy and hope to take my knowledge further in the future.


Georgina Kyle

Practice Manager

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.

Client Services Manager

Read Laura McCrorie bio


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 2 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 2 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.

Hi my name is Donna & I joined the practice July 2015.

Originally from Lancashire I moved to Ayrshire over 26 years ago. Prior to joining the team I used to be a receptionist in a hotel & I love meeting new people, now I get the added bonus of meeting their lovely pets as well.

I have always had cats since I was a child & have 2 black & white boys called Jeffery & Harrison. In my spare time I like to spend time with my family & friends, read & grow veg in my greenhouse.

Client Care Advisor

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.
