Company

The Pets'n'Vets Family is an award winning network of neighbourhood Veterinary Practices in and around Scotland’s largest City, Glasgow.

We have been providing independent Veterinary care to our community for the last 45 years and over that time have become a local institution; known not only for our excellent Veterinary care but also for our sense of humour!

As a practice we have never stood still, far from it! 

We have been described as one of the UK's most progressive Veterinary Groups with many exciting 'firsts' - our amazing collaborative "new.graduate Programme", our fabulous client Members Scheme, (where among other things we invited all our clients to the cinema to see a Pets’n’Vets Family screening of "The Secret Life of Pets") our awesome ambulances and of course, our brand new state-of-the-art Veterinary Hospital, The Roundhouse! 

We are proud of many things; being voted "Glasgow's Favourite Business, 2015",  our new 'Super Practice', the Roundhouse with its exceptional kit list including full orthopaedic, endoscopy, laparoscopy and arthroscopy kits, digital dental X-ray and regular access to CT and of course we are very proud of our amazing Team! Vets and Nurses are encouraged to develop with in-house CPD as well as funded further study, this year we have a record number enrolled in Certificates!    

Our ethos is a bit different too... we are, as a business, 100% "Clinically-lead", we rely on clinical markers rather than financial targets.  A robust "no sales" policy underlines that point and adds to the client feel.

We have always concentrated on what we are best at - Excellent Veterinary Care!
