MEET The TEam
At Vetrica we have an informal atmosphere, aimed at making you and your pets feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Never be afraid to ask one of our friendly staff for help if you are at all unsure about any aspect of your pet’s health and welfare.
After qualifying as a vet from Glasgow University in 1991, Bob spent several years working at a number
of locations around Britain before finally settling in Rosyth.
Married with three children, Bob set up Vetrica single-handedly in December 2001, aiming to work to
the highest standards giving the best possible service. In his spare time, he’s to be found wandering
the forests of Blairadam with his two hooligan spaniels, Fester and Pudding.
Karen’s interest in animal welfare has developed over 20 years of “married bliss” with Bob.
She has great respect for the work of the staff team at Vetrica, and is happy to be the general
dogs-body and receptionist.
Doreen Started at Vetrica in 2004 by proving holiday cover and has been with us ever since.
Her well known personality proves popular with clients and animals alike. In her spare time she
enjoys caring for her dogs (Zak and Hooper), cats (Crunchie, Cookie, Gizmo and Gremlin) fishing and watching football.
Jackie joined the practice in 2007. With her background in wildlife nursing she regularly takes in abandoned or injured animals (fur, feather or scale) to nurse back to health.
In between juggling work and family she enjoys keeping fit by attending the local gym, going on walks and caring for her dogs (Ellie, Mitzi and Suzie) and cat Pickle.
Layha is our most recent nursing addition, joining the practice in 2009 after coming her for work experience. She is currently studying towards gaining her nursing qualifications.
She is well known with clients and staff for her calm, and reassuring nature for even the most nervous of animals. She spends her spare time riding and schooling her horse Barney, walking her dogs (Trudi and Ollie) and caring for her cats (Peaches and Pablo).
