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.
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.
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.
A veterinary surgeon will be happy to visit your pet in your home if this is required, although we will not have access to all the drugs and equipment available at the surgery. In addition, home visits are subject to higher charges – please enquire for a quotation if required.

Microchipping is routinely available at both surgeries- no anaesthetic is required.

We can advise you on the current pet passports regulations including microchipping, rabies vaccination, blood tests and parasitic treatments required.
