Elaine Stewart has joined the Roundhouse Veterinary Hospital to oversee its emergency and critical care services.

Sparking a specialism

An Edinburgh University graduate, Miss Stewart started her career working within the small animal division of a mixed practice in Lanark before her interest in emergency and critical care was sparked while locuming at a large UK-based out-of-hours service provider.

After eight years, she decided to further her education by starting her BSAVA Postgraduate Certificate in Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care and to look at a way of delivering the high quality service provided at night back into mainstream veterinary care.

“This would prove challenging as the majority of ‘general practitioner’ veterinary practices no longer wish to staff clinics with an on-call or overnight service,” said Ms Stewart.

Skills available

“To deliver this goal I had to find a progressive practice willing to listen, learn and implement changes that would primarily benefit their clients/animals, owners and staff; delivering the same quality of service without the requirement for referral to an ‘unknown’ clinic for day or overnight care.”

Ross Allan, partner in The Pets‘n’Vets Family, said: “Elaine is a very impressive vet with extensive knowledge. She’s a dynamic individual with unparalleled experience of leading an integrated team providing critical care, and her addition to the Roundhouse Veterinary Hospital team enables us to offer an exceptional service and standard of expertise unavailable elsewhere in the West of Scotland.”
