Clinical Director
Having grown up in the Stirlingshire, I graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 2008 and have stayed in Glasgow ever since. I have worked in a number of clinical settings including private practice, out of hours and charity practice. I enjoy meeting clients and their lovely pets and always enjoy a chat! I have particular interests in soft tissue surgery and diagnostic imaging, and am currently working towards my Post Graduate certificate in imaging. I have been at Champion since 2023, and when I’m not at work my 4 children and 2 lively dogs keep me very busy!

Dr Juliet Stirling BVMS MRCVS
I’m originally from Northern Ireland but moved to Glasgow to study veterinary in 2009 and never left! I have worked in small animal practice since graduating and joined Champion in 2020. I have a particular interest in medicine. I enjoy the variety and problem-solving challenge these cases provide and the holistic approach required.

I live in Glasgow with my partner, our cat – Dorie and dog – Pippin. We plan to get another kitten this year. I cannot wait – I absolutely love cats inside and outside of work! In my free time I enjoy dog walking, dancing and socialising with friends.
