Beverley Naismith BVMS MRCVS
Beverley has worked at the Abbey Veterinary Group since 1993, starting the day after she received her finals results. A few weeks later, she graduated from Glasgow University Veterinary School with distinction in small animal surgery. She spent the first half of her career as a mixed general practitioner progressing to becoming more involved in the small animal side of things after having her children Mhairi and Calum. In her spare time she likes walking her dogs "Dude" (A collie cross who was left in an Avon box with his siblings outside the Greenock Surgery as a tiny baby) and "Shea" (A whippet and the first pedigree of the household). Beverley also likes to dabble in the equestrian world, a passion shared by Mhairi and they have a great pony, "Brandy" who superseded little "Teddy" the Shetland (now relegated to being a companion although Calum occasionally takes up the reins). To complete the menagerie at home is a one-eyed cat called "Cozi" who, despite her disability, is a mean mouser! Beverley loves her work and enjoys the busy, varied workload. There is nothing better than the sense of achievement at the end of a busy day. Having been a partner for over 10 years now, Beverley has developed an interest in small animal surgery and has a soft spot for some of the smaller species, especially ferrets, and may yet become the proud owner of one.
