Gordon Aitken

Veterinary Surgeon and Clinical Director

Being a Scottish lad, Gordon grew up near Edinburgh and qualified from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in 1992.

He moved south to Newport for his first job , fell in love with the area and has stayed ever since. After spending four years with Fields Vets in Newport and five years with Ash Vets in Merthyr , Gordon joined the team at Valley Vets in 2001. In 2003 he became the Senior vet at our Caerphilly surgery and then a Director and owner in 2005.

Gordon's main professional interests are x rays and surgery. He achieved the RCVS Certificate in Radiology in 1998.

Over the years Gordon's love of animals has led him to keep a large assortment of birds , reptiles, fish, insects and crustacea, as well as his greatly missed Blue Merle Rough Collie , Blue , who passed away at 15 years old.

Gordon is a bit of a film buff, bird watcher and loves travelling to see and photograph wildlife in its natural habitat .
