In 2003, we set up a small animal clinic in a historic, grade II listed building, next to the ancient St Nicholas Church, in the old High Street of Dalkeith. Since then, we have become one of the first practices to enrol in the voluntary Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Practice Standards Scheme, we have introduced our pioneering Healthy Pet Club and the practice has grown to the extent that in the summer of 2011, we moved into a purpose-built premises just round the corner at 18 Edinburgh Road, Dalkeith.
