About our vet and veterinary nurse at Drumbrae Veterinary Centre

Gerry Henry BVMS MRCVS and Fiona Adams BvetMed MRCVS are the vets who run the clinical side of things, they are ably backed up by our excellent team of nurses Becky Gould, Jenny Whyte and Nicola Macphee and our experienced receptionist Wendy Girling.

Gerry and Fiona have been in small animal practice most of their professional lives clocking up an impressive 45 years between them. We are an approved Veterinary Nurse Training Practice, we also take veterinary students from all the UK veterinary colleges and occasionally from overseas too so you’ll probably see lots of keen young faces when you visit.
