I qualified from Glasgow Vet School in 2000 and have been working in small animal practices in Ayrshire since then. I have been a partner at Vets4pets Ayr since 2011 and am excited to be part of the new surgery in Irvine. I aim to provide an excellent standard of veterinary care to our patients and look forward to meeting you. I enjoy all aspects of my work but have a particular interest in all types of surgery and rabbit medicine. Outside work I enjoy riding my horse Obi and relaxing at home with my dogs Blue a red collie, Beryl the merle collie, Harry the rescue cat and my ever expanding collection of chickens!

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 originally worked for Vets4Pets in Ayr where I qualified from in 2014. Since then I have worked at The Royal Dick School of Veterinary Medicine in Edinburgh where I got experience in all areas of the hospital through ICU, surgical/medicine wards and exotics. I have also worked for local veterinary practices carrying out tasks such as monitoring anaesthetics, nurse consultations and patient care. I then started locum work mostly around Vets4Pets surgeries which gave me a great insight into how each individual surgery works. I really enjoy running nurse clinics as I find them really rewarding and feel like it builds up a really good relationship with both clients and patients. At home I have 3 collies who I love spending time with and taking walks to the river for some fun.

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 qualified as a Vet Nurse in 2005 and have always worked in small animal.  I joined Vets4Pets in January 2020 and left for a short period at the beginning of 2021 before coming back in October.  I am currently covering Client Services Manager maternity leave so will be mainly at reception with the occasional shift on nurse consults.
I have a passion for cats and have both a certificate and diploma in Feline Nursing.  At home I have one dog, Taco, and two cats, Tinkerballa and Tri-Pawed.

Hi My name is Jo, I qualified as an RVN in 2003 at a mixed practice in Hertfordshire in England. After that I went on to locum for many practices both in the uk and in Australia. 
I have spent 14 years of my career nursing captive wild animals as a veterinary nurse at the Zoological Society of London in Regents Park, as you can imagine it was very interesting and varied work. I have recently moved up to Ayrshire with my young daughter and husband and I am very much enjoying my return to small animal practice and all it entails. In my spare time I enjoy different crafts and taking my lurcher on new found walks in the local countryside.

Hi I am Georgina, I've been practice manager at Vets4Pets in Ayr for three years and I am excited to now be part of the Irvine team. Prior to joining Vets4pets Ayr I spent nine years in retail management and feel very lucky to be able to combine my skills with my passion for animals. Being in practice is challenging yet rewarding and no day is the same. I can often be found in our reception area stealing cuddles from our patients. I enjoy meeting and greeting our clients and patients daily. At home I have a 4 year old Son Benjamin and a Ragdoll x Cat called Mr Boo, who I spend a lot of my spare time brushing! I am looking forward to meeting all our new clients and patients in Irvine.
