Our Dedicated Staff
Thomas Fitzgerald RVN,A1
Registered Veterinary Nurse and Clinical Assessor
Thomas graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2007, having already spent many years working in a veterinary practice. With over 20 years experience in veterinary nursing and assessment of students, he has a particular interest in the care of birds, rabbits and tortoises. Thomas is delighted to use all that he has learned in leading the practice into a new era and develop the services offered to clients (and their owners)
His own pet Pug, Lola, comes to work with Thomas everyday, and is often found to be saying "hello" to clients or relaxing in her bed by the radiator.
Dr Michael Lockerbie BVMS MRCVS
Head Veterinary Surgeon
Michael graduated from Edinburgh's Royal (Dick) Veterinary school in 1979. There is not much about the care of animals that Michael doesn't know, and we are happy to have his experience in our practice.
Michael enjoys all aspects of surgery from orthopedics to ophthalmology. Away from the practice, Michael shares his home with his wife, a Collie called Roy and various feline friends.
Dr Nicholas Ciociola MRCVS
Nicholas joined us in 2016 after graduating from veterinary school in Milan, Italy.
Nicholas is the practice cat whisperer and is often found chatting to owners and their cats. He has a keen interest in all aspects of internal medicine and ultrasound.
Amy joined our team in 2017 having previously worked for another local practice. She completed her animal management course in 2016. Amy previously worked as a kennel assistant, gaining good experience in animal husbandry. Her favourite animal is elephants but reptiles are also close to her heart. She lives with a cat, tortoise and leopard gecko.
