Adam Charleston


Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Adam bio

I graduated from Edinburgh University in 2 and I was delighted to return to the area when I opened Vets4Pets Livingston in 2007. Before then I worked at veterinary surgeries in Mansfield, Coventry and Portsmouth. A special interest of mine is internal medicine and dermatology. My dogs mean the world to me. Maggie is a border collie, and Billy is a greyhound. When I get spare time I can be found gardening and doing DIY, or I might be out cycling or at the cinema.

I am Alison Docherty the lead vet at Vets4Pets Livingston. I joined the practice in May 2010. I graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 1999. I initially worked in mixed practice (beef, sheep and equine) before deciding to specialise in small animals after a few years in a busy West Yorkshire practice. I am now very experienced in all companion animal species with a particular interest in ophthalmology and feline geriatric medicine. I enjoy splitting my time between consulting and operating. In my leisure time I enjoy going to the gym and outdoor pursuits with my husband, two young children and two dogs (and occasionally my cat if he gets bored hunting!)

I graduated from Glasgow university in 1995 and started work in mixed practice. I enjoyed the variety of working with a mix of large and small animals in practices across central Scotland for many years. 

In 2010 I decided to specialise in small animal practice and further develop my interest in using Acupuncture as another treatment option for our patients. I joined Vets4Pets Livingston in 2015 and enjoy working with this very dedicated team. Outside of work I enjoy going for walks and cycle trips with my family.

I graduated from Barcelona University about 6 years ago and moved to Bonnie Scotland not long after that. I started working at vets4pets in July 2017 and I am enjoying it very much. I have a cat called Django, he is 3 years old and pretty much the king of the house. I really like feline medicine and, in my spare time I enjoy traveling and going for hikes with my husband.

Practice Manager

I joined Vets4Pets as one of the receptionists in September 2018. My favourite part of the job is being able to meet all the animals and the owners. It is amazing to be able to witness animals getting better and back to themselves by the help of the amazing vets and nurses. I have a cocker spaniel at home called Rudi. He is 5 years old and I love to take him on long walks in my spare time.

I have recently started as a Receptionist in Livingston, which I love. With a lifelong love for animals and a number of my own, it's an environment I have always wanted to work in since completing and HND in Equine Management and having a career within the equestrian industry over the last eighteen years. I am looking forward to increasing my knowledge of small animal care and possibly doing some additional studying.

I started reception in June 2018 and only being here a short while, I am absolutely loving it. I have always seen myself in a job doing something with animals but the opportunity has never arose until now. The best part is seeing all the puppies and kittens. The worst part is the sad moments when beloved pets are being put to sleep. I only have the one dog called Skye who is 11 years young and still very puppy-like. Possibly going to rescue a guinea pig later this year with the persuasion from my colleagues. 


Client Care Advisor

I joined vet4pets in 2016 after having worked in various different administrative positions. This one, is by far my favourite! With not having any pets of my own at the moment, coming into work is like getting to meet a new pet every day! My favourite part of the job, is getting to see the progress the sick animals make, from seeing how poorly they are when they come in, to how happy and healthy they are when they leave. Knowing that we are able to make our clients happy by making sure their best friend is well looked after, always makes our day.
