About the practice:

This RCVS accredited, successful and established practice, first opening its doors in 1930 as a mixed practice but now 100% small animal,  has an excellent reputation in the area and continues to grow and develop. The practice is still very proud to be independent and their commitment to quality of service remains unaltered from that of nearly 100 years ago.

The practice's aim is to provide the highest standards of care for its patients and their owners. They offer a friendly and professional service, at fair prices with a personal touch.

The team consists of 6 Vets, 6 RVNs, a wonderful team of receptionists and a practice manager. It has many years of experience to learn from and support is always freely available.

The  recently-renovated main practice has excellent facilities including digital x-ray, ultrasound,  dedicated dental suite and comprehensive  Idexx -equipped laboratory. There is a small branch practice in  the nearby historic market town of Linlithgow.

The area has easy transport links, with Edinburgh Airport and the M8 and M9 motorways being just minutes away.

VetFinders is a recruitment business with a social mission at its heart. We are more than a recruitment business whose only aim is to make a profit, this isn’t us! We aim to make a profit of course we do but donate a minimum 25% of all our profits back to animal/children’s charities. Some agencies might give to charity as a token gesture, but we give a minimum of 25% away making it a core element of our business. We will be totally transparent on this and be audited annually to prove this isn’t some cheap sales pitch!

The best part of this is we aren’t going to just give money to charity and forgot about it we are going to work closely with these charities and see where the money goes. We will fund certain projects of theirs, work on their front line and make sure all donations are used for the care of animals/children.
