Read about Tricia
Tricia decided that she wanted to be a vet at 8 years old. She was told as a teenager that, “women don’t become vets” and was advised to seek an alternative career.
After five years at Glasgow University Veterinary School, she achieved her dream and qualified as a vet.
For 10 years she worked in rural mixed practice, enjoying treating all species. For a long time, she enjoyed being a “coo vet” and still harbours a love of cattle.
She has worked exclusively in small animal practice since 2001, developing special interests in the care of geriatric pets, feline medicine and behaviour (recently gaining the ISFM Advanced Certificate in Feline Behaviour) and is a keen advocate of improving owner education and veterinary care in rabbits. She has recently become interested in methods used to reduce anxiety in pets visiting the clinic.
Her dream in 2012, when Lomond Hills Veterinary Clinic opened, was to attain ISFM Cat Friendly status. After much hard work and investment, the team were delighted when the clinic was awarded the much coveted Gold Standard in 2018.
Tricia currently works part-time in the clinic but spends a lot of time behind the scenes on the computer and runs the Facebook page.
In her spare time, Tricia enjoys photography, reading, walking, learning Spanish, speaking Spanish, and the occasional glass of Rioja.
