Robson Vets was first established in Fettercairn on 1st January 1900 by Mr H.W.Robson MRCVS, a house surgeon from the Royal (Dick) Veterinary College.

In 1917 the business moved to ‘Glenroyd’, Laurencekirk and remained there until 1996 when we moved to the new, purpose built, Veterinary Hospital in the Business Park, Laurencekirk.

The surgeries in Montrose and Inverbervie were added in the early 1980's, followed by the purchase of Mr A.M.Williamson's veterinary practice in Portlethen in October 2007. This has given us the opportunity to extend our services to a much wider area.
