Quality, professional veterinary care, tailored for you and your pet.
JULIE INNES VETS, HAMILTON
My name is Julie Innes, and I am the veterinary surgeon. I was born in Hamilton and
lived here until I went to Edinburgh (Dick) Vet School, where I qualified as a BVM&S
in 1995. It’s been a circuitous route back to Hamilton for me, as I worked in Ayrshire
(where I did farm work as well), then Dunfermline, then Glasgow. I moved back to
Hamilton in 2006, after working in Clarkston for ten years. I have 2 dogs, 2 cats
and a tortoise in addition to my 3 human children, so life is never dull!
This is Anna , our head veterinary nurse! She qualified as an RVN from Telford in
2012 and has been with us ever since. Anna has worked at the Cat Protection and at
the Lion reserve in South Africa!! She has a special talent with angry cats as a
result! Anna is currently on maternity leave after the birth of her son.
This is Christine, a veterinary nurse who works part-time. Christine has fully trained
as a vet nurse, but having children and becoming a busy mum got in the way of her
getting her final qualification! She has her own menagerie of animals to attend to
in her spare time, and is also an accomplished singer. As well as her nursing skills,
she is also a dab hand at DIY, so don’t worry if you see her with a screwdriver instead
of a stethoscope at times!
Jen is another qualified RVN who job shares with Christine. She is a lovely calming
influence on the patients, and also on the staff! In her time off she has her hands
full with her two little boys and her own animals.
This is Alyth, out soon to be qualified student nurse. Alyth has a pasion for small
furries and birds, as well as looking after her own dog, 2 cats and her bunny!
This is Emma-Louise, our VCA (veterinary care assistant) who works part-time for
us. She has a little girl, but sadly lost her little cat, pictured here, recently
This is Elaine, another qualified RVN who works part-time after the birth of her
little girl. She has a dog and a house rabbit
This Katrina, our full time vet. Katrina qualified in 2014, and came to work with
us in 2016. She has 2 cats of her own and enjoys crafts and the gym in her spare
time (not at the same time of course!)
This is Anne, our part-time vet. You will see her on Saturdays! The rest of the tim,e
she is busy with her 2 young boys and her little dog
This is Melissa, a qualified RVN and our acting head nurse. Between them, our nurses
run our many nursing clinics, including weight clinics and diabetic clinics. Melissa
also loves the cinema and her little lhasa apso!
This is Laura, one of our student veterinary nurses. As you can see, she has chinchillas
and also enjoys working with other small furrries and exotics.
This is Iona, our other student veterinary nurse. As well as her rather startled
looking cat, Iona loves samoyeds!
This is Antonia, our latest full time vet! She qualified in 2019, but has been in
and around the practice since we opened in 2011, as she came for work experience
when at school, then did reception work for us on Saturdays before attending as a
vet student and now, finally, a vet!
