About our Vet's

I grew up in Cambuslang, in the Southside of Glasgow, with my two sisters. From a very young age, much to my mother’s dismay, I was bringing home sick and injured animals and those in need of a home! My older sister was the first in the extended family to go to university so you can imagine the shock when both myself and my twin sister got accepted to Glasgow University to study Veterinary Medicine. If you’ve ever been in my dad’s black cab in Glasgow, there’s a chance you’ve already heard our story!

I first developed an interest in herbal medicine after trying it on myself. From a basic cup of gentle chamomile tea to help me get off to sleep to the famous Echinacea when I got the cold, my interests grew. As I read more I began to use plant medicine on my dogs, Patch and Scrap and even my partner Ben! In my third year of vet school I undertook an external certificate in Western Veterinary Herbal Medicine alongside my regular veterinary studies. I am fascinated with plant medicine and can often be found growing and gathering plants and making my own medicine.

I first tried acupuncture for an old horse riding injury to my shoulder. I had tried many things to treat the pain, but nothing worked until the acupuncture.  Since graduating from Vet School in 2014, I have undertaken a post graduate diploma in Traditional Chinese Acupuncture. It has been fascinating to learn about this ancient art and I am really enjoying integrating it into my practice.

Holistic veterinary medicine is my passion and treating animals in a way that I would want my own animals to be treated is important to me. Within my practice my aim is always to get to the root cause of my patient’s problem and treat that rather than only treating the symptoms seen.

I hope that we can promote this holistic approach to veterinary care in Scotland. I will take the time to understand every aspect of an animal’s life including its bond with you and treat your pet with natural medicine, care and respect.

For me working in this way is much more than just a job. It’s about integrating ancient and modern techniques to provide safe and effective therapies that improve the health and welfare of animals committed to my care.

I was lucky to have spent my childhood and much of my young adult life in the company of horses, dogs, cats and wildlife. It was this time that kindled my passion for all four legged creatures and sparked my desire to help and support them in any way i could.

 

After graduating from the University of Glasgow i completed a equine internship at the Royal Veterinary College in London and then spent several years in first opinion practice. It was during this time that i found myself searching more and more for the root cause of my patients problems, evaluating their lifestyles and diets and looking for treatments to support them, rather than simply treating their symptoms. 

 

When i discovered traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture a switch flicked, finally i felt able to treat my patients in a way i felt they deserved. From here my passion for holistic therapies has grown, I  am currently studying towards a diploma in veterinary herbal medicine as well as looking at food therapy and other adjunct treatments to allow me to support all my patients in the most holistic way i can. 

 

I grow many medicinal plants in my garden at home, combining my love for herbal medicine with that of gardening, often using the results to treat friends and family.
