Very friendly staff, treatment options well explained, both my dogs love paying a visit (the jar of dog treats might have something to do with this)

Taylor Veterinary Practice Ltd - Cathkin Surgery

I have just lost my baby boy (cat) after a year of heart problems, and all the staff at Taylor Vets; Doctors, Nurses, desk staff & Billy the ambulance driver have been amazing, if it weren't for them and their brilliant help with him we would have lost him long ago. Even after he lost the fight they treated him with such respect and his ashes presented beautifully. I just want to say thank you so much for making this sad time a little easier to cope with.

My vet is Catrina. She is like my family’s vet. I prefer to use the same vet as much as possible so it is easy to follow up on a case. Very reasonable vet charge. And caring vet. Catrina is particularly familiar with cats as well.

Ardmory Veterinary Clinic

2 Ardmory Ln, Glasgow G42 0BX, UK – 0141 563 4788

Been coming to Michael and his team since we rescued our greyhound, Charlie, 5 years ago. They are hands down the best vets I've ever used. Michael sat on the floor with Charles at his first consultation, feeding him treats and gaining his trust, he is the Dr Doolittle of animals! Charles LOVES going to the vets because he knows that's where the biscuits are! Wonderful team who absolutely love their animals. Almost all our greyhound friends use Michael or Julie Innes in Hamilton, as these guys really are the greyhound experts. We travel from Hamilton, because the level of care and professionalism is second to none, if you need a vet and ESPECIALLY if you have a sighthound, look no further than Michael and his team!

This is best veterinary clinic I know. Staff are all amazing and very helpfully. The vet also takes time to listen and you can tell he loves animals.

This has got much more humane. The Pet Travel Scheme allows pet animals from certain countries to enter the UK without quarantine, as long as they meet certain conditions. The Scheme also means that people in the UK can, having taken their pets to these countries, bring them back without the need for quarantine
