Dr. Marie Gallagher


Dia dhuit gach duinne - hello everyone!

I am originally from Ireland and I received my veterinary degree from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland in 2020. Animal welfare has always been a driving factor for me, and I am Fear Free Certified. Meeting new people and helping pets every day is my passion.

Outside of veterinary medicine work, I love music, baking and reading. And, of course, spending time snuggling my pets at home. I have an Australian Shepherd mix named Freyja and 2 ginger tabbies named Patrick & Gary. Orange tabbies are a personal favourite of mine, so if you have a ginger tabby, then I will likely make a big fuss!

I look forward to meeting you at the clinic - be sure to say hello if you see me there!
