Dr Laura Hamilton BVM&S PgC SAC MRCVS Clinical Director

I graduated from the University of Edinburgh RDSVS in 2010. I worked in mixed practice for 7 years before deciding to focus solely on small animal practice. In 2016 I gained the General Practitioner Certificate in Small Animal Cardiology and in 2018 gained the Postgraduate Certificate in Small Animal Cardiology. In 2019 I became a Kennel Club Approved Assessor for BOAS for French Bulldogs, English Bulldogs and Pugs, this can be carried out at the practice or arranged for group sessions. I also enjoy breeding work, performing surgery and learning new and updated techniques.

I own 2 french bulldogs Minnie and Fliss (you may occasionally meet them in reception!) and have a keen interest in working with both breeders and pet owners to improve brachycephalic breed health including health testing and BOAS testing.

I started here as senior veterinary surgeon at Animals 1st Vets in July 2017 and I am really enjoying the new challenges and being part of this team. I work mainly at our Macmerry branch. I became the Clinical Director of the practice in November 2018 and am really enjoying the new challenges that come with this role.
In my spare time I enjoy seeing friends, reading, walking my dogs and have recently been attempting running!
