24 hour emergency service
If you have an emergency, or need advice outwith normal surgery hours, please telephone the practice and you will be directed to our out-of-hours service provided by Vets Now, who are based on North Street, Glasgow City Centre (not far from the Mitchell Library).
Vets Now is a dedicated emergency clinic providing high quality care during all times when our surgery is closed. We receive a fax the morning after your pet has been seen, detailing all treatments and investigations undertaken, enabling us to keep your pet’s record fully updated, and allowing us to prescribe follow-up treatment if required.
We recommend vaccinations for all puppies, kittens and rabbits. Alongside keeping levels of immunity boosted, annual vaccinations are vital as they include a full check-up, and the opportunity to detect illnesses and diseases early on.
A lot of conditions we see in small animals can be prevented by neutering. Our vets will be happy to discuss this with you during your visit.
Many animals suffer from dental disease, and may require dental work at some point in their lives. Understandably, this can be a worry for owners due to the requirement for a general anaesthetic. Please be assured we use the most modern anaesthetic agents, and can offer pre-anaesthetic blood sampling in older pets for extra piece of mind.
Free dental hygiene checks and advice
Dental disease is one of the commonest conditions we see in our patients. As with a lot of problems, prevention is the key to good dental health – our nurses provide free dental checks and are happy to offer advice about dental hygiene.
With our new x-ray machine, floating x-ray table and automatic processing, we offer full x-ray facilities to assist in diagnosing your pet’s condition.
We are delighted to be able to offer ultrasound scanning as part of the diagnostic procedures available for your pet.
The "Western Scientific Approach" acupuncture is now available as a method of treatment for a number of diseases, in particular painful conditions. We would be happy to discuss this further if you feel this would be of benefit to your pet.
This is a straightforward procedure to insert an electronic identification chip between the animal’s shoulder blades – it requires no sedation or anaesthesia and can be done during a routine consultation. If your pet goes missing and is microchipped, there is a much higher chance of them being returned safely to you.
Not all pets need their nails cut. However, if they are older and not getting as much exercise, they may need trimmed now and then. Feel free to get our vets or nurses to check them if you are worried.
Parasite control medication
This practice believes in regular worm and flea prevention – we’ll even send you a reminder when your pet is due more medication!
Free Nutritional advice
Good nutrition is vital to your pet’s health and well being. Unfortunately, nutritional problems – especially overweight pets – are something we see all too often. Please speak to our nurses if you have any concerns about feeding your pet.
Puppy socialisation parties
Aside from being great fun, these parties provide an opportunity for puppies to socialise with other puppies of the same age – this will help to make them happier and more relaxed around other dogs when they are older. It is also a chance for owners to quiz the nurses on aspects of their pet’s care. We vets love them as these puppies come running into the surgery with their tails wagging!
