Our mission:

Provide vets with the tools to work as well with people as they do with animals.
We believe that communication underpins this aspiration, have a strong affinity for vets working with cows, and believe that coffee helps us enjoy a happy life.

Who We Are

MacVet was established in 2016 to provide consultancy services to veterinary and animal health businesses.

Our owner and director, Dr Fiona MacGillivray, has over 25 years experience working in the industry, having worked in clinical practice, then in marketing and technical roles for leading global Animal Health companies.

Fiona's passion for learning and understanding more about communication lead her to study and practice the principles of Motivational Interviewing and to undertake a Masters degree in nonverbal communication.

What we do

We specialise in supporting vets to better understand what influences people's decisions around change and how communication plays a central role in this. 

Communication takes place through verbal and nonverbal channels; understanding and building skills in both areas can improve our ability to become more effective communicators. Our knowledge of verbal and nonverbal communication within veterinary practice places us in a strong position to support vets who wish to become more effective communicators.
