Katy MCLAUGHLIN

BVM&S MRCVS Veterinary Surgeon

After qualifying from Edinburgh RDVS in June 2006, Katy first worked here as a locum vet that summer, and spent time seeing practice during her studies.

In April 2012 she returned to become a permanent member of our vet team, and her interests cover a wide spectrum of animal care from small and large animal surgery to neonatal, obstetrics and emergency medicine. Calvings and reconstructive surgery are some of the favourite parts of her job, but way up high is seeing animals fully recovered after treatment. Katy loves the variety of challenges created by working in a mixed practice and certainly experienced this while working in Australia for three years, treating kangaroos for all manner of ailments including diarrhoea to broken legs and stitching the fight wounds of safari park lemurs!
