Fiona Wheater BSc MSc
Fiona has a BSc in Immunology/Microbiology from Strathclyde University, Glasgow and an MSc in Biomedical Science from Napier University, Edinburgh. After a career as a Clinical Research Associate for Novella and GSK, Fiona decided to start her own business, Edinburgh Pet Services, and after eleven successful happy years it's still her passion.
David Wheater LLB (Hons) DipLP
David qualified as a lawyer and worked at the Registers of Scotland before becoming self-employed and joining Fiona. David runs the website & marketing and helps Fiona with dog walking & cat sitting at busy times.
Fiona set up Edinburgh Pet Services eleven years ago to provide a trusted, professional pet-care company for pet owners in Edinburgh, Scotland.
We searched for an Edinburgh dog walking company for our first Bedlington Terrier, Taz, when we moved home and could not find one that walked less than four dogs at a time, most walked eight dogs. We wanted our own dog to go on a walk in just a small group, so he would get more time and attention. Fiona has been an enthusiastic animal lover ever since she got a Siamese Seal Point for her 5th birthday. Now in her 40's she's owned many much loved pets over the years including dogs, cats, and small furries.
Fiona has a BSc and a Masters and has worked for The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland looking after all kinds of exotic animals in their education department. She has also enjoyed delivering animal handling classes and given regular educational talks to the public on everything from Rhinos to Giraffes! After a career in medical research she wanted to return to her true love of animals and hence Edinburgh Pet Services was born in 2010. It's been an amazing eleven years!
Fiona re-homed her current Bedlington Terrier, Gracie, from Leicester in England in February 2015, aged 3, whom she adores with all her heart. Setting up and running a pet-sitting company has allowed Fiona to follow her true passion for pets by looking after other peoples' fur-babies. Fiona is a member of NARPS UK and has a canine first aid certificate.
Both David & Fiona are Disclosure Scotland checked and we are happy to show our testimonials on request.
If Fiona ever wins the lottery, her dream is to rescue lots of animals and have a rescue full of pets.
