Meet the team
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 2 dogs, Ruby the Lab and 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 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.
I graduated from Glasgow uni in 2018 and started working in Stranraer soon after. I've recently moved home to Ayrshire and joined the team at Vets4Pets.
Outside of work I enjoy catching up with my friends and walking my dog, Gus.
Registered Veterinary Nurse
Hi, my name is Grace and I’m one of the registered veterinary nurses here at Vets4Pets Irvine. 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.

I started at Vets4Pets in Ayr in 2015. Since starting with Vets4Pets I have qualified as an Animal Care Assistant. I am very excited and feel very privileged to now be a part of the Irvine team. I am the community champion, with this position I work closely with the public, helping with fundraising ...and working along with schools educating children on animal welfare and career options. I have previous experience of 4 years working in a small animal practice as well as emergency work. I find my job very rewarding and love all aspects of what I do.
At home I have 3 pets, Mollie who is a Cavalier king Charles, she is 5, we enjoy lovely walks and cuddles, Poppy who is a 2 year old blue point tabby cross. I also have 2 rabbits called Bounty and Twix who are both just 1 year old and have been neutered.
I’m Niamh, I have been with Vets4Pets as a client care advisor since 2021. Previous to working in the practice I worked in retail management, I am grateful to be in a job where I can combine my passion for animals with my skills I’ve developed in previous roles. At home I have 3 dogs; my whippets Flynn and Ivy and my little Italian greyhound Perrie, who only has 3 legs! I also have a Syrian hamster named Nigel.
Hello, I’m Louise and I have been part of the team since November 2021. I have worked in customer service for around seven years so being able to pair this with my love for animals has allowed a real enjoyment in my job!
I have two dogs at home, Baxter who is a fluffy cockapoo and Bailey who is also a cockapoo but is 75% cocker spaniel so is extra bouncy!
Hi I’m Dom!
I started working at Vets4Pets in Irvine at the beginning of 2022 and I’m really enjoying my new role. I get to learn a lot about the job as well as meeting everyone at the practice.
At home, I have two amazing doggies, my precious beagle Cloud and beautiful brown eyed, white Siberian husky, Sif. I spend a lot of my spare time with my dogs and my partner, Ben. We go on a lot of fun nature walks where we get to explore. I am a huge animal lover and I’m planning on becoming a Vet Nurse.
I’m Jade and I’m one of the client care advisors here at the Ayr branch. I love being part of a large and hardworking team, it’s like one big family at Vets4Pets. I have worked with animals for over 10 years and I can’t imagine doing anything else. I come home every day to my two babies Oscar the cavapoo and Brogue the English bulldog.
