To be twee it was as a James Herriot novel and let's face it that's all everyone wants vetinary care to of been and to be again. One more time thank you for standing out as exemplary.

Great vets, obviously like the animals they are working with. We love the Balerno branch, it's small and quiet and great if your animal is anxious. Styx says woof.

My family have always used this practice. When my dog had to have a surgery on his paw I knew he was in good hands. Now he's getting older I trust they are helping me do all I need to keep my senior dog healthy. He also loves the staff even if the surgery makes him nervous. I would recommend both their normal surgery and their large animal practice.

Can't fault them with how the exotics department have treated my degus so far. I've always ended up waiting for my appointments but, as they deal with a lot of emergency cases it's understandable. It's never been longer than a 20 minute wait past the appointment time. There may be a vet student present during the consultation from time to time as it is a training hospital.

Excellent hospital. have been taking my cats there for years. No hesitation in recommending them. All the staff are really approachable and communicate well.

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
