We are open for essential care only
In line with government guidelines, we are only offering medically essential appointments, so please contact the practice team before travelling. Our opening hours may also vary, so please monitor our webpage to keep up to date with the latest information.
We are taking steps to help keep you and our colleagues safe:
- If you do need to visit, we ask that only one person per pet comes along, to help reduce the number of people in the waiting area at any one time.
- Social distancing is crucial at this time. When arriving, you may be required to call ahead and wait to be invited in by a member of our team. You will be informed if this is necessary when you call us to make your appointment.
- Once inside the practice, we ask that you please respect a two metre distance from our colleagues and other clients.
- We are only accepting card payments to help minimise contact between you and our colleagues.
- If you can’t visit the practice and are concerned about your pet’s health, please contact us to discuss available options.
We will continue to share regular updates here and on our Facebook page. We thank you for your patience at this time.

I graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 2003 and after a spell in small animal and equine work in the East Midlands have worked exclusively in small animal practice for the last 10 years . Having grown up in Lanarkshire, I moved back closer to home in 2007. Having worked in both permanent and locum positions in practices all over Central Scotland I am happy to have set up in Hamilton. I enjoy all aspects of small animal practice and have a particular interest in medicine cases and dentistry. I have worked for Vets4Pets since June 2016 when I was employed as Lead Vet for the opening of Vets4Pets in Falkirk. I enjoyed the challenge of starting this new business and thoroughly enjoy having my own practice in Hamilton and meeting all the new pets and their owners coming through our doors. I have a Labrador called Luna whom you may see around the practice from time to time . I also have 2 cats called Rambo and Jess. Outside of work I enjoy walking and travelling and love exploring new destinations
I graduated from Edinburgh vet school in 2019. What I enjoy most about my job is the variety and in particular I enjoy surgery. Outside of work I like to spend time with my family and animals. I am always looking for new areas to explore with my 3 dogs.
was born and raised in South Carolina, USA by my Irish mum and Scottish dad. My love for animals started early as I grew up with 4 cats, a dog, a gerbil and several fish! After living in the states for 18 years I decided to come over to the UK for university. I completed my first degree in Bioveterinary Science at the University of Lincoln (BSc Hons). Then continued my education to becoming a veterinary surgeon at the University of Edinburgh (BVM&S MRCVS). I graduated in 2019 and joined the Vets4pets team in Hamilton soon after. I enjoy so many aspects of small animal general practice and am particularly interested in internal medicine. Outside work, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and my two cats, Nala and Luna! I also enjoy hill walking and have bagged 4 munros so far. Hoping to add a few more to the list soon!
I qualified from Glasgow University in 2005. I spent 2 years in mixed practice in Yorkshire before returning home to Lanarkshire to dedicate my time to small animal practice. I joined the Vets4pets Hamilton team in November 2019 and have thoroughly enjoyed it so far. I enjoy both surgery and medicine and love the variety of pets I have met so far at the clinic! In my spare time I am kept busy with 3 young children and a puppy, we enjoy getting outdoors for nice walks.
Chanel is a qualified RVN and has been with the Vets4Pets team since 2017. She has been qualified for 11 years and had worked in referral hospitals before moving on to first opinion practice. When not working, Chanel is spending time with her two young boys and her collie dogs.
I qualified as a veterinary nurse from Edinburgh College in 2016. Since then I have worked in two busy hospitals which I loved. I have just returned to work after having my little boy and I am very happy to be a part of the Hamilton Vets4Pets team. I have 2 miniature pinschers called Vinnie and Callie. I am interested in exotics and love seeing all the small furries in practice. I hope to further my skills in the future and am currently completing an exotics nursing course.
I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2007,and have been working in small animal practices ever since. I enjoy the diversity of the job, and have a particular interest in surgical nursing and anesthesia. I have a geriatric cat called Murphy and also spend time outside work looking after my sister's border terrier Bella. When I'm not out with Bella, I enjoy running and spending time with my kids.

I joined the Hamilton Vets4Pets family in April 2019 after deciding that I wanted a big career change. After rescuing my dog Bronx, my husband and I started to volunteer for the charity that we rescued him through. After many discussions, I decided to follow my heart and find a role that let me work with animals on a daily basis. I love my job, I get to meet so many lovely owners and pets. When I’m not at work, you’ll find me at the park with Bronx. He had a pretty rough start in life, so my husband and I have worked very hard to socialise him and teach him that the world isn’t that scary. There’s nothing better than watching him happily chasing and wrestling his friends. When we have spare time, we love to get out in the car and explore the countryside – the highlands being a favourite of ours.
