Reception and Management Team

Practice Manager


Kim Thomas


I worked here at Animals 1st from 2011 until 2015, before moving to Edinburgh Vet School to work in their accounts Department. I came back here as Practice Manager in 2017.  I run the practice from day to day, dealing with insurance forms, manage accounts and make sure things run smoothly.

I have 3 spaniels – Bracken, Ghillie and Oreo, an African Grey Parrot called Woody and Timothy the Tortoise.

In my spare time I enjoy reading, walking and spending time with friends.


Branch Management


Jen Jones – Haddington

Jen photoI joined the Animals 1st Team in July 2015 and am currently running the Haddington Branch Surgery.

After my Vet Nurse Training at Edinburgh’s Telford College I worked for 14 years with particular interests in feline critical care and wildlife rehabilitation. I have completed CPD courses in Pet Nutrition (Hills), Advanced Feline Nursing (Bristol Vet School) and Orthopaedic Bandaging (East Neuk) amongst others.

I have a passion for Owls after hand rearing,keeping and training captive bred birds for many years,and am a strong supporter of Lothian Cat Rescue. I also recently become a volunteer with Wing & A Prayer chicken rescue.

The most exciting animal I have dealt with has to be a Puffin that I helped release back successfully to the wild.

In my limited spare time I enjoy anything crafty, baking, canoeing, gardening, dog agility and long walks with my Fox Terrier X fish DJ!.
