"No Gimmicks, No Tie-ins, Just Excellent Local Vet Care"

Oliver Jackson


Oliver (Mike) JacksonOliver is a Glaswegian, born and bred in the south side of the city. He graduated from Glasgow University Veterinary School (GUVS) in 2004, before moving down to London where he lived until early 2010.

Whilst in London, Oliver worked for several high profile veterinary practices, gaining accolades and becoming the youngest vet ever to be asked to run a practice by his then employer.

During his time in London, Oliver could count amongst his patients the pets of a Spice girl, a well-known British film star, a famous DJ, several footballers, and a model. “I really enjoyed my time in North West London but I must admit I never forgot my Glasgow roots,” he says.

Oliver and his wife have two young daughters, a gorgeous re-homed Border terrier called ‘Stitch’, a black and white cat called ‘Wee Boab’, and a ‘second-hand’ 7-year-old Pug called ‘Foo’. “I’ve always loved animals. In my home we have always been surrounded by pets and that’s just the way I like it!”

Oliver’s first word as a child was “Down!” mimicking the word used to control one of the family’s most wayward beagles, Holly. Oliver has particular interests in preventative Veterinary Healthcare, cat and dog nutrition, and reptile husbandry and health care.

Oliver was nominated for the Petplan 2011 and 2012 ‘Vet of the Year Award’.
