Meet our Team

Elaine Shaw BVMS MRCVS

Elaine is the senior vet in Brannock and a partner in the business. Elaine attended the University of Glasgow Vet School and she qualified in 1991.

If she is not consulting or operating she is buried in the paperwork! Elaine really enjoys all aspects of caring for our patients and building friendships with patients and clients from their enthusiastic youth to caring for our golden oldies.

Outwith work (in the few hours that are left) she is partial to a good book, cocktails and chocolate in no particular order! Seek and Lexi – her cairn terriers – come to work daily but only to get a gravy bone!

Iain Shaw

Iain joined the team on an official basis in April 2015. As Elaine’s husband he has been around the surgery from its planning stages so he is very capable in all areas!

As the practice manager, Iain deals with the majority of the paperwork and ensures that it runs smoothly behind the scenes.

Jacqueline Dick BVMS MRCVS

Jacqueline joined the Brannock team in December 2016 but has been a small animal vet for many years after graduating from the University of Glasgow vet school in 2004.

She has a keen interest in medicine and surgery as well as oncology.

In her spare time she keeps busy looking her family and menagerie of animals on her small holding.

Hannah McCulloch – Vet

Hannah joined the Brannock team after graduating from the University of Glasgow in 2021. She enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine – both internal medicine and surgical!

In her spare time she enjoys walks with her two cocker spaniels, Lucy and Rue. She also likes to go to the gym and is kept busy looking after her cheeky cat, Eli!

Laura Westland VCA

Laura joined us in July 2015, previously working for Glasgow University and Cat’s protection. Being passionate about animal welfare, she has her own menagerie at home including Henry the beagle, four guinea pigs and a very lazy hamster.

She has a particular fondness and interest in working with small mammals, particular rabbits. In her spare time she is usually found reading or spending time with family and friends.

Danny Ballard

Danny joined the Brannock team in July 2018 having gained previous experience within a practice in Glasgow’s busy west end.
Danny is passionate about all animals but has a particular interest in reptiles and exotics. He has a collection of various snakes and creepy crawlies at home as well as a German Shepherd, Arnie and two cats.

Danny loves all aspects of veterinary care but particularly enjoys surgery and carrying out nursing clinics.
Out with caring for his large collection of animals, Danny also has a mini version of himself in the form of his wee boy Daniel who loves to keep him on his toes!

Siobhan Traynor

I joined Brannock vets in November 2019 and I was delighted of the opportunity to combine two of my favourite things customer service and my love of animals . As an owner of 3 dogs and a cat I feel I can bring enthusiasm and empathy when it comes to dealing with fellow pet owners .

I have three dogs Skye the cocker spaniel, Buddy and Rosie the Yorkshire terriers I also have a cat Belle. My life is controlled chaos with 4 children, 4 animals and a husband, there is never a dull moment. I look forward to greeting you and your furry friends at reception.

Emily McIntyre – Nursing staff

Emily joined the Brannock team officially November 2020. Currently studying to complete her veterinary care assistant course. Since joining Emily has never brought a dull moment to the surgery.

Emily always wanted a family pet, after working in Brannock and countless stories of all the pets in work, Emily convinced her family to get a dog Cooper the cockapoo, who is as crazy as his owner

Jill Laidlaw – Reception team
Jill has been at Brannock since April 2021. With previous experience in a veterinary clinic in Glasgow. Jill is an enthusiastic hard worker who is keen to learn more in the veterinary world.

Jill has 8 Border Collies who she shows and competes in obedience with. Jill has been a client with Brannock right from the start and so has been with us right through and seen us develop into the surgery we are now.
