Rory Thomson –  Senior Veterinary Surgeon


Having worked for a corporate practice, I decided I wanted to work for a small practice where I could get to know my patients and have more clinical and financial freedom to provide the best care for my patients without strict financial targets to hit.

I am a family man with a supportive wife and 2 young daughters.  Also at home I have a very spoilt 14 year old terrier called Sammy, 1 Dutch rabbit and 6 rescue guinea pigs (it’s practically impossible to work in a vets without taking some waifs and strays home).

Since starting at St Clair, I have been nominated for Petplan Vet of the Year for 4 years running and would like to thank all the clients for their kind nominations.  I am also a volunteer Marine Mammal medic for the British Diver and Marine Life Rescue charity, so I am on call to assist with any marine mammal that requires help – usually seals but I have been trained to assist with a stranded whale or dolphin should it be needed.
