Get to know Camilla Church BVMS MRCVS 🐎
Camilla Church graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2015. She spent the years since her graduation working in Perthshire, in a mixed, and a small animal and equine practice. When her practice was taken over by a corporate, it meant that investment was no longer possible so she set up Perth Equine Vets. They opened in January 2021, and they now have a team of herself, another equine vet and a registered vet nurse. 

The practice currently covers an area 45 minutes from Perth. With a larger team, Camilla hopes to reach even further. In the long term, Camilla would like to take on more vets so they can run an efficient emergency service.

Camilla has additional qualifications as a Permitted Treating Vet for the FEI, and is a qualified racecourse vet. Perth Equine Vets is often out in the field, providing vet cover for endurance and hunter trial events. On the side, Camilla lectures part-time college for veterinary nursing students online, with the North Highland College.

As a mad keen Pony Clubber, horses have always been important to Camilla growing up. She passed the PC A-test in 2017 and since then became an accredited Stage 4 professional coach with the BHS. She has been teaching freelance since 2019, and have lovely clients, both adults, and children. When she’s not teaching, she competes her superstar horse, Harriet, in BS and BE competitions.
