Our Team



Since graduating in 1980 Richard has gained experience working in practices situated in the extreme North and South of the United Kingdom. He spent time in Orkney, Devon and Glasgow before settling in Forfar, Angus. He joined David as a practice partner in 1997 and soon after they opened a branch in Arbroath.

Richard has always enjoyed the variety of mixed practice. He feels equally at home attending farm or companion animal patients and their owners. Over the years he has developed a particular interest in dairy fertility and having personally kept a variety of birds, reptiles and exotics, he enjoys seeing our exotic patients.

Richard has always been a keen motorsport enthusiast and in his spare time he can often be found in the wee small hours working in his garage or conversing with his cat, Indi.


Steven graduated from Glasgow in 1994 and worked in County Durham, South Africa, Surrey, Manchester and Glasgow before joining Abbey Vets in 2012.

He enjoys all aspects of veterinary work but his biggest interest is in soft tissue surgery.

When he is not at work he enjoys listening to music, cooking and eating good food and spending quality time with his wife and crazy springer spaniel.
