A bit about us…….
Polmont Veterinary Clinic opened its doors for the first time in
March 2002 by husband and wife team James and Carol Brown. Working
with animals was all they have ever wanted to do.
||In 1986 James secured
a place at Glasgow University Vet School and he qualified in 1991.
He went on to work for four years in mixed practice where he gained
experience working with both large and small animals – here
he also met Carol!
In 1995 he moved to Dundee to work with the PDSA as a Veterinary
Officer. Whilst at the PDSA he dealt with lots of trauma cases
on a daily basis as well as a wide and varied surgical caseload.
His ambition to run his own practice was finally realized when
James and Carol took the plunge and moved their young family to
Polmont in 2002.
Any spare time James has is spent walking the dogs, cooking and
baking, and making a few trips each season to the Emirates Stadium
to watch his team Arsenal play.
Carol is self-confessed ‘Animal Daft’ and always has
been. Having gained experience at the same mixed practice as James,
Carol gained entry to Myerscough Agricultural College in Preston and
qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 1995.
On qualifying Carol moved to work in a mixed practice in Perth. As
the only Vet Nurse working with five vets she quickly gained the experience
and knowledge necessary to ensure the smooth running of a busy practice
– experience that stood her in good stead when it came to opening
Polmont Veterinary Clinic.
When not working Carol enjoys walking her dogs, gardening and spending
time with her kids.
As well as James and Carol, Polmont Veterinary Clinic has four qualified
Veterinary Nurses and one full time Veterinary Surgeon. Between them
they have over 90 years of experience working in the Veterinary Profession!
a small happy team who work well together.
They all came in to the profession with a strong vocation to work
with animals. All have pets of their own, so understand the same
concerns and experience that come with owning a pet.
At Polmont Veterinary Clinic we offer a friendly, professional
service where the welfare of animals is always the number one
