Read Julie McGarry bio

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

 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 am a second year Student Veterinary Nurse studying at College of Animal Welfare in Edinburgh. I joined the Vets4pets Hamilton team in June 2020 and have enjoyed working as part of the team. Since starting, I have gained so much experience with different types of animals and have also enhanced my knowledge. I have a particular interest in small furries and love looking after them when they come in to visit us. Once I qualify, I would love to learn sign language and to learn more about exotic animals. At home, I have a 2 Roborovski hamsters, 2 goldfish and a Miniature Schnauzer called Roxie.

I have been part of the Vets4Pets family since March 2016, and I can honestly say I have the best job in the world! I enjoy meeting all of our clients, old & new, and of course the most rewarding part is making our patients feel better. At home I live with my two dogs, Bali & Aspen, who are both Japanese Spitz. They are my best friends so when I am not at work, we try to go on as many wonderful adventures around Scotland’s country parks as we can. Bali was unfortunately diagnosed with kidney issues early on her life, so is quite a regular at the practice to see her auntie Julie, who keeps her as happy & healthy as possible. I am also a very horsey person, so I try to get down to the stables when I do have some free time! If I could be any pet, I would be a cat – mainly so that I could watch my owner go off to work on a rainy Monday morning while I was snuggled up on the sofa!

For the 10 years before I started at Vets4Pets I worked at Dogs Trust but came to the decision to to try something new – it had to be animal related though as that’s what I love doing! I have thoroughly enjoyed working at the Hamilton practice and watching it grow as we meet all our new clients and patients and get to know them all. I have 3 rescue dogs – an elderly Jack Russell called Bobby, a Golden Retriever called Tim and a young Retriever cross called Finlay. In my spare time we go away to the caravan a lot where we do a lot of walking and going to the beach as that’s the dogs' favourite place.
