Dr Roy Christie
My name is Roy Christie i have been a Veterinary Surgeon for many years now, I have owned 3 Veterinary Practices in my career including Grange Veterinary Clinic before selling it. I now work at the clinic three days a week, i’ve always had a passion for all animals large and small.
Many of you would know me already. I am a fully qualified Veterinary nurse and have been here for 30 plus years so im a part of the furniture! Pet wise over the years I have had a wide variety from mice, guineapigs, birds, possums, dogs,cats,hermitcrabs and fish. Im always smiling and happy to help.
My names Lauren and i’m currently studying my certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and will be qualified in 2020. I have been at Grange Veterinary Clinic for almost two years now and have loved meeting and getting to know every animal and client that comes through the door. Animals have always been a large part of my life and the fact that i get to go to work everyday and help them in whatever circumstance it may be is very rewarding
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” was never a hard question for me as my answer was always, something to do with animals.
I studied animal behaviour when i finished school and then started my career in Veterinary Nursing in 2018. I am now a fully qualified veterinary nurse. I’ve always had a great love for all animals, nursing and surgery has always been a passion of mine.
I have 3 fur-babies of my own, Maisie my 3 year old rescue blue heeler, Meeka my 4 year old tortoiseshell cat and Todd my 12 year old ginger cat.
I am a fully qualified Veterinary nurse and have been since 2016. Working as a veterinary nurse and with animals has always been my dream, since I was a little girl. I feel very privileged that I get to live this dream every day.
In my spare time I love dog training, horse riding and anything animal related. At home I have two beautiful pets a rescued dog named Bear and a Cat Named Kitty Who I saved from an car yard in Ardrossan. Both are very spoilt and loved.
My names Monty, I am a highly valued member of the team. I have lived at Grange Veterinary clinic for over a year now. I was raised here as a kitten by one of the nurses 18 years ago and ended up back here to be completely spolit by the team!
My hobbies include eating, sleeping and complaining when breakfast is late. My role at the clinic is to make sure everyone is doing their job properly and to greet any animals that come to stay with us for the day- i always make sure to remind them whose in charge! I also have a slight obsession with Dr Ritchie and I will complain until he gets here and cuddles me.

It costs around $25,000 to breed, raise and train an RSB Guide Dog, which is why the Grange Veterinary Clinic is happy to contribute to this worthwhile cause.
