Formerly Managing Director of the FitzClinic (Fitzpatrick Referrals Oncology and Soft Tissue) and Fitzpatrick Learning Academy, Professor Carmichael will provide clinical consultancy and general mentorship to enhance further the range of cutting-edge clinical services at The Roundhouse.

Commenting on his appointment, Professor Carmichael said: “I’m delighted to join the dynamic Pets’n’Vets Family at The Roundhouse Veterinary Hospital, a facility which I rate alongside the very best I’ve seen, and look forward to contributing to its further development over the years ahead to the benefit of local pet owners.”

Welcoming Professor Carmichael into the Pets’n’Vets Family, Oliver Jackson, partner, said: “We’re thrilled that Stuart has chosen to switch supervet practices and return to Glasgow, where his distinguished career began, to give our clients and vets the benefit of his expertise.”

Stuart Carmichael BVMS, MVM, DSAO, MRCVS is a graduate of the University of Glasgow. He is a RCVS Diplomate and RCVS Specialist in SA Orthopaedics. He was Director of the Small Animal Hospital in both the Royal Veterinary College and University of Glasgow and served as Professor of Veterinary Clinical Studies and Associate Dean for Veterinary Clinical Services at Glasgow between 2000 and 2009.

In 2009 he joined Vets Now as National Hospital Director before moving to Fitzpatrick Referrals in 2011 - 2016 where he was MD of FR Oncology and Soft Tissue. He is Professor of Veterinary Science at the University of Surrey and Chair of the Board of Trustees of International Cat Care.

The Pets‘n’Vets Family’s flagship Roundhouse Veterinary Hospital opened last year with the aim of making available to Glasgow’s pets the full gambit of veterinary treatments; everything from health advice and vaccinations to the most complicated surgical and medical care, including complex fractures, JPS (Juvenile Pubic Symphysiodesis), a ground-breaking surgical procedure that can help prevent hip dysplasia and minimally invasive laparoscopic (key-hole) surgery.

The Pets’n’Vets Family recently introduced interest free payment options on bills from £250 upwards, providing a solution to the issue of affordability for pet care.
