Services

Consultation

Our consultations will involve the diagnosis and management of everything from the most acute serious condition to a chronic mild problem. We also carry out weight checks, nail trimming etc, and will give advice on feeding, dental issues, flea control, worming and a multitude of other topics.

Vaccinations

We carry out vaccinations against all the common dog, cat and rabbit diseases and send out booster reminder cards to ensure your pet is fully protected in future. At a vaccination appointment, we will also check over your pet and give you advice on any problems we find or that you are concerned about.

Operations

All routine surgical procedures including neutering, dentistry, lump removal and other soft tissue surgery are carried out at our Bridge of Weir surgery, as well as x-ray examinations and blood and urine testing. If a problem is particularly complex or specialized, we are happy to arrange a referral to an appropriate specialist at Glasgow University Veterinary Hospital or elsewhere.
