Sarah has been part of the Vets4Pets family since March 2016, and she says she has the best job in the world! She enjoys meeting all of our clients, old & new, and says the most rewarding part is making the patients feel better. At home she lives with her dog Aspen, a Japanese Spitz. They try to go on as many wonderful adventures around Scotland’s country parks as they can. She is also a very horsey person, and tries to get down to the stables when she has some free time!

I’m definitely the team’s crazy cat lady, I’m totally obsessed with every cat that visits us and have a soft spot for the golden oldies and the grumpy ones. I have four cats at home: Misty, Murray, Mango and Maple and I’m always telling the team stories about their antics! When I’m not at work, I’m normally spending as much time as possible with my wife and family or I’m cuddled up in bed with my cats watching true crime documentaries.
