What we offer for your pet

Medical Services

We have the latest digital x-ray and dental x-ray equipment enabling your pets to be treated quickly and effectively on the premises by us.
Preventative dental care is an essential part of caring for your pet. Dental disease is one of the most common problems with middle-aged and older animals. We recommend regular dental check-ups; we include these as part of the annual vaccination examination. If dental treatment is required, however, then we have modern air powered equipment with which we can provide sensitive, high-quality care for your pet. Our dedicated dental x-ray facilities enable prompt and accurate treatment.
We have a well equipped in-house laboratory enabling full blood-testing, microscopy, and urinalysis. The majority of routine laboratory work can be performed on the premises, thus minimising waiting time and enabling prompt treatment.
Having your pet microchipped given them the best chance of being identified if thy get lost or are stolen. At Hyndland street we offer a microchipping service for dogs, cats and rabbits using PET ID equipment. It is compulsory to have your dog microchipped in Scotland from April 2016. It is essential that owners remember to keep their details up to date following microchipping.
Vaccinations are essential to ensure your pet is protected against the major infectious diseases. When your pet visits us for their annual booster vaccination they will be fully examined and given a weight, dental and flea check.

Routine Dog Vaccinations provide protection against:

  • Distemper
  • Hepatitis
  • Parvovirus
  • Para-influenza
  • Leptospirosis
If your dog spends time in kennels, training classes , with a dog walker or is regularly in contact with other dogs we would also recommend kennel cough vaccination. Puppies begin vaccinations at 8 to 10 weeks of age and should then have an annual booster vaccination.

Routine Cat Vaccinations provide protection against:

  • Enteritis
  • Cat flu
If you cat goes outdoors they should also include feline leukemia vaccination Kittens vaccinations course begins at 9 & 12 weeks followed by an annual booster.

  • Myxomatosis
  • Viral Haemorrhagic disease

Care Services

We have a number of vets who are qualified to handle passports within the practice. For more information please visit the DEFRA website www.defra.gov.uk or call pet travel scheme helpline 0370 241 1710
Home Visits can be arranged by contacting our reception. However where possible we prefer to examine your pet in our modern well-equipped surgery where we have the full support of our staff and facilities to allow us to deliver a high standard of care and treatment. Therefore we would always ask that you try to bring your pet into the surgery, if this is not practical we would ask that you contact us early as possible to give the Vet sufficient time to arrange a visit.
We strongly recommend the principle of pet insurance as there is not an NHS for pets. Pet insurance can help with the cost of unexpected emergency treatment and with long term illness. When choosing your policy we would advise not to do so solely on the basis of cost – some policies have more onerous terms and conditions than others e.g. some policies have lower limits on the cover they provide (both financial and time) than others. At Hyndland Street, our experienced staff can help with completing pet insurance claim forms.
If required, we can arrange for specialist consultation and / or referrals for your pet.
