Paco Morera MRCVS - Practice Principal

Paco took over the practice with partner Abigail in November 2007. Since then, he has been working to ensure very high standards of care for our clients and their animals both large and small.

Paco is an extremely caring and committed vet, who has a natural ability with animals and a enjoys building strong, trusting relationships with our clients. As testament to this, Paco was nominated for the second year in a row for Petplan Vet of the Year 2012!

After graduating from Barcelona, Spain and a spell there in small animal practice, Paco moved to Fort William where he worked for seven years as a mixed vet. Paco enjoys the variety of mixed practice, which allows him to get out working with a herd of cows one day, and operating on a ferret the next! He has a special interest in the more unusual species from rabbits and chinchillas to parrots and lizards.

Paco is currently updating his skills in ultrasound scanning, and has attended the annual three-day London Veterinary Congress in November 2011.

Paco and Abigail have two young children, a dog, two hens and a cockatoo. In his spare time, Paco enjoys a spot of amateur dramatics, jewellery making and cooking.

   
 

Gail Cruft BVM&S, MRCVS
Gail is our dedicated 100% small animal vet and has been with Easter Ross Vets now for 20 years. Gail has a huge amount of knowledge and experience, which combined with her generous and approachable nature make her a highly valued member of the team and an excellent resource for our pet-owning clients. Gail is now a familiar face for many clients and their pets, and we are very proud to have someone of Gail's abilities in the practice.

Gail previously worked in this practice for only one day per week whilst also working at the former Epona vets in Inverness. In 2009, Gail chose to relocate to be based solely at Easter Ross Vets, and is with us three days per week, mainly at the Invergordon practice.

After graduating from the Dick Vet School in Edinburgh, Gail did a spell as a mixed vet in Fife before deciding to focus on small animal work. She then worked as a 100% small animal vet in Kilmarnock for three years before moving to Inverness in 1991. Gail worked at Epona for seven years where she was often in sole charge of their Carsegate branch.

Gail enjoys all areas of small animal practice and is a skilled surgeon. In 2005 & 2006 she completed courses in Acupuncture through the Association of British Veterinary Acupuncturists. Through the use of acupuncture, Gail is able to provide effective relief for pets who suffer from chronic pain and and are no longer responding to medication, or can be used to reduce the need for pain killers.

Most recently, Gail has completed a course in ultrasound scanning, and also attended the Southern European Veterinary Conference in Barcelona focussing on endocrinology.

Outside of work, Gail is the fiddle player in several ceilidh bands, playing with partner Les the piper at venues across Scotland and as far afield as Lagos, Nigeria! Gail has two teenaged daughters for whom she provides endless taxi services, enjoys walking with Cona the dog (seen pictured) and has Orlando the cat. 

   
 

Lucy Rogers BVMS, MRCVS 

Lucy is from Northern Ireland and started work with Easter Ross Vets in mid October 2011. 

Lucy has recently graduated from Glasgow Vet School, is looking forward to getting stuck in to rural mixed practice.  Lucy's main interest is small animal medicine, and the majority of her time will be spent looking after our rapidly growing small animal client base.  However, Lucy enjoys farm work immensely and has already amassed considerable on-farm experience both as a general worker and from a veterinary perspective.

 Having studied in Glasgow, Lucy enjoyed the opportunity to get out walking in the Scottish hills and to visit some of the islands, so she is excited to be in a location that allows her to pursue this interest. 

Lucy is a very friendly and conscientious vet which has already been recognised by clients as well as colleagues and as such Lucy was nominated for Vet of the Year at the Petplan Awards 2012.   We are absolutely delighted to have her as part of the team.

   
 

Abigail Walker BVM&S, MRCVS
Abigail first joined the practice in 2004 as a new graduate and stayed for two years. She immensely enjoyed the mix of work, the clients and the team here. Abigail then moved to join Paco in Fort William from where she worked as a locum vet, which was a great opportunity to gain experience in many different practices including in Skye, Aboyne and Stirling. Abigail and Paco made the decision to take over the running of the practice here in 2007 so that they could live and work together.

Between looking after the children, Abigail currently does management work from home to ensure we keep our facilities up to date and respond to the needs of our clients in constantly improving our services. She enjoys being able to stay in close contact with the practice and keeping up to date with current trends and advances in veterinary medicine.

In her spare time, Abigail enjoys family time, getting out for a good walk with Sally the dog, singing and playing piano.
