Meet Our Team of Vets...

SUSAN FARR BVMS CertVOphthal MRCVS

 

Susan graduated in 1989 from Glasgow and worked initially in Cumbria then in Musselburgh before joining the Abbey Vet Group in 1995. Susan completed an RCVS postgraduate ophthalmology certificate in 2007 while still doing a full-time job.

She does both small and large animal work with a particular interest in eyes and all things optical. She sees referrals both from within the practice and from other vets and now has an operating microscope which allows her to perform delicate surgical procedures. 

Susan enjoys playing tennis in her spare time and has two very lively Labradors at home to keep her busy!

COLIN GREER BVMS MRCVS

 

 

Colin graduated in June 1999 from Glasgow Vet School and started his first veterinary job at the Abbey Vet Group in January 2000. Over the years he has learnt to turn his hand to most things - small animal, large animal or some of the industrial work the practice does. He is also responsible for writing the practice large animal newsletter.

When he is not working Colin enjoys most water sports. Having been a successful dinghy sailor and a competent swimmer more recently he has tried surfing and waterskiing!

INGEBORG LINDHOLM BVMS PhD MRCVS

 

 

Ingeborg qualified from Glasgow University Vet School in 1984, then spent a year as house surgeon at Edinburgh University Vet School, before returning to Glasgow to do a PhD. She worked with us at Abbey Vet Group for 2 years in the early 90's, doing small animal and farm work, then moved to small animal only work at practices in Glasgow and later Kirkintilloch, before returning to the fold at Abbey Vet Group in 2002.

In addition to her general interest in pet medicine and surgery, Ingeborg is a trained practitioner of Western Scientific Acupuncture. This can be a useful adjunct to conventional treatments for various conditions, particularly chronic pain cases.

A Dalmatian lover, Ingeborg is unfortunately between Dalmatians at the moment, much to the delight of Dice, her old rescue terrier, who, having managed to outlive her arch rival, now only has two pesky cats and three goldfish to be jealous of. Ingeborg's previous pets included lizards, koi and tropical fish.

KATE REID BVMS MSci MRCVS

After completing a Masters in Zoology at Glasgow University, Kate graduated from Glasgow Vet School in July 2005. She started working here only 2 days later! Kate now consults and operates part time at our Greenock surgery where she enjoys the daily challenge and variety of small animal practice and building good relationships with our regular clients and patients.
She spends the remainder of her time looking after her young (and rapidly expanding!) family.

FRANCES MCLAUCHLAN BVMS MRCVS

 

Frances qualified from Glasgow Vet School in 2004 and started at Abbey Veterinary Group in January 2005. She is a full-time small animal vet and will treat cats, dogs, small furries and the exotic species. Frances has even been known to successfully operate on a chicken! Frances is interested in both medical and surgical cases and, as she is mainly based in the Paisley branch, enjoys the satisfaction of managing cases from start to finish.

Being a vet runs in the family - her younger brother Gerard is an internal medicine specialist at Glasgow Vet School. He keeps Frances and the rest of the vets up to speed with any new medical developments! Frances has seen a number of students gain a place into veterinary school. The practice currently have 6 vet students who "see practice" with us and she is heavily involved in their tuition and progress.

JULIE THOMPSON BVMS MRCVS

 

 

Julie graduated from Glasgow University Veterinary School on Monday 27th June 2011, and was working with us at Abbey by the Thursday! She first appeared at AVG as a school student, and we were her 'base' practice during her university course.

Julie is a mixed vet, so is involved in farm, equine, and small animal work.
She is a soft touch though - she has already been unable to resist a 3 legged kitten (subsequently called Trio) and an exuberant Lurcher called Poppy, who luckily get on well together thanks to the help of some Feliway and Adaptil for their introduction!

ELISA BLANCO BVM&S MRCVS

An Edinburgh graduate, Elisa joined the practice in February 2013, working as a mixed vet. Elisa's clinical interests lie in developing these all round skills.

When not at Abbey Elisa can be found walking or running with her retired greyhound or tending to her hungry chickens!

ALEX JONES BVMS MRCVS

 

Alex graduated from The Royal Veterinary College, London in July 2015 and joined us at Abbey in September 2015 as a mixed vet with the aim of gaining experience and building his skills amongst all species great and small! He enjoys all aspects of mixed practice but has particular interests in small animal medicine, anaesthesia and cattle fertility.

In his spare time, he enjoys going to the cinema to watch the latest movies, keeping up to date with his home football team, Swansea City, and cycling along coastal areas and in the countryside. It goes without saying, as a patriotic Welshman, he loves watching rugby and is a big fan of the 6 Nations.

MICHAL RADAWIEC Dr of Veterinary Science, MRCVS


Michal graduated in 2015 from the University of Warmia and Mazury in Poland.

After qualifying, he gained experience as a mixed practice vet in Pomerania before joining us here in the West of Scotland. He brought with him a fantastic work ethic, compassion and humour.

Michal spent his childhood on a farm, working with his Father, and always had a great interest in cattle and horses but adoption of his pet dog, Orka,showed him that working with companion animals is very rewarding too.

When Michal isn't working he enjoys reading fiction and he plays the guitar and piano. He loves spending time exploring Scotland with his wife, hiking and photography.

CAMILLA MCNUTT BVMS MRCVS

Camilla graduated with Honours from Glasgow University Veterinary School in 2010 and began her career in Nottinhgamshire in a busy mixed (mainly small animal and equine) practice.

We were delighted when she joined our team in May 2016, as she brings experience and a keen interest in all things equine, along with excellent small animal skills. Camilla also aims to develop her farm work.

Camilla enjoys cooking, yoga, running and travelling but not as much as the company of her two cats, her dog and, of course, her horse.

Originally from Largs, Camilla is pleased to be close to home again, allowing her to spend time with friends and family.

KATIE WOOD BVMS MRCVS

Katie graduated from Glasgow Vet School in July 2016. She has been 'seeing practice' as a student with us since 2009.

Katie enjoys a challenge so is keen to get involved with all animals- big and small! She aims to develop her skills and knowledge in all aspects of general mixed practice.

In her spare time Katie enjoys playing hockey and running with her spaniel Molly to keep fit!

MEGAN MCNUTT BVMS MRCVS

Megan graduated from the University of Glasgow in June 2013. After 3 years down south in a small animal/equine practice she decided to move back home to Scotland to be closer to her family.

Megan spent a year in a small animal practice but found she missed the variety of mixed work and joined the team in May 2017. She has a keen interest in small animal and equine medicine, but is also looking to further her farm animal skills.

Megan enjoys the company of her rescue cat Leo, the family dog Toby (pictured above) and horse Taiya. She also enjoys socialising with family and friends, yoga, live music and snowboarding.
