John Vernon BVM&S MRCVS Veterinary Surgeon

I am originally from Dumfries and Galloway and studied at Edinburgh University. After qualifying in 2011, I worked as a mixed practice vet in Orkney for 18 months. Since then, I have worked exclusively in small animal practice, first at a practice in Kilmarnock and then at the Glasgow University Small Animal Hospital. After completing my rotating internship, I worked as a locum vet, primarily doing emergency work, before joining The Oaks in February 2021.

My areas of interest include dentistry, oncology, neurology and emergency & critical care. I enjoy working closely with clients to get the best outcomes for their pets. 

Outside of work, I like to spend lots of time with my wife and two kids and particularly enjoy going to the park and to the beach. I also like to cook, play golf and do a bit of woodworking when I get some free time.
