Catherine Hutchison - Small Animal Clinical Director
Catherine Hutchison BVMS CertAVP MRCVS Small Animal Clinical Director

Catherine graduated from Glasgow University Vet School and spent the first four years of her career working in mixed practice in Ellon, Aberdeenshire. Although she valued this initial experience of treating farm animal, equine and small animal patients she decided to concentrate on small animal work.

Catherine joined the small animal team at Ardene House in 2005. She enjoys all aspects of working in a busy small animal hospital but is particularly interested in medicine, especially feline medicine. Catherine has completed a course in small animal acupuncture and uses the technique to aid in the treatment of chronic pain associated with osteoarthritis and other musculoskeletal disorders. She is currently working towards a Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (CertAFP) and is enjoying the challenge of completing the canine and feline medicine modules.

Catherine lives in Banchory with her husband Rod and is on the lookout for a new feline friend. Outside work she enjoys going to the gym, travel and is currently having golf lessons.
