5 “Silent” Killers of Cats

Did you know that cats can have a hyperactive thyroid gland? Also known as hyperthyroidism, it’s a fairly common condition in older cats. In fact, the vast majority of affected cats are older than 10 years of age. Most of the time, the reason is either a benign tumor...

How My Former Puppy Mill Dog Changed All of My Pet Health Assumptions

I’m the first to admit that I tend to go a little overboard for my pet’s care. After all, as a life-long animal advocate, I’ve seen too much inhumanity, too much pain, too much suffering put on these animals not to want to reverse that in my own home. I’ve also seen...

Do Dogs Dream?

Whether or not dogs dream isn’t known with scientific certainty, but it sure is difficult to imagine that they don’t. We’ve all watched our dogs demonstrate behaviors in their sleep that resemble what they do in a fully awake state. Paddling legs, whining, growling,...

Professional, compassionate, kind, friendly and totally competent in conventional and holistic veterinary medicine. I wouldn’t go anywhere else with my pet, even though I have to drive 45-50 minutes to this clinic – I would do it a 100 times x

We have been bringing our babies to Glenbrae for 13+ years and the staff are the most special people ever. From the moment you enter the happy caring atmosphere hits you and calms you down if you have a sick pet. Everyone works so hard and they have so much to deal with when we bring in our sick babies and keep us calm and reassuring words of comfort. Please take a bow every single member of staff and know how much you mean to us #bestvetpractice

My cat O’Malley has been going to this clinic for over a year and has recently had some tummy problems. I must say that all the staff in the clinic are absolutely amazing and give the best advice and care. They are so friendly and patient and take the time to answer any questions that you have about your pet.

  • Missy, my rescue dog, was with Glenbrae for nearly 13 years. Regardless of her challenging behaviour when there, her care through various conditions was kind & excellent. Now she has passed away, I'd like to thank the entire team.

    Taking my young Clumber Spaniel girl for a walk is like going out with an industrial vacuum cleaner. Nothing is safe from her appetite. So after numerous vet visits and trying unsuccessfully to train her out of it ,they recommended a muzzle for walks. It was with great reluctance I agreed but it was the best thing I could have done. We both now enjoy walks again and Ican relax knowing that she is free to sniff and forage to her heart's content with being at huge risk of killing herself. Cosmetically it actually looks okay and she doesn't mind it. Thanks all.

  • My dog, Skye , was ran over recently. She has now made a full recovery. This is due to the professional care and attention from staff in both Dumbarton and Bearsden. Even after all she has been through, Skye still loves goin to see everyone at Glenbrae

    When we took our 11 year old lab to see Wendy and the team at Glenbrae, she was so crippled with arthritis that she struggled to walk even a short distance. Wendy was very caring and knowledgable and put us all at ease (including Rosie)! Six weeks on, Rosie is running about like a pup again following sessions of acupuncture and laser treatment. We cannot believe the improvement shown in such a short space of time! Rosie is back to her old self and we would highly recommend these treatments! We can't thank Glenbrae enough!

    So happy with how all the girls have cared for my girl Lexi. Been in for stem cell treatment and a small emergency. Debbie has been great with her treatment and care with her stem cell and was really impressed n how I was given regular updates of her progress and what was going to be done when she unwell. I've only been with them a couple of months but they recognised me & Lexi wen I was out n about at the rodeo. They value their customer and love n care for your pets . Lexi is very grateful for the care and treats she receives. All staff are amazing and really happy I changed to glenbrae, wouldn't go anywhere else now xxx

  • Fantastic service! My westie Angus had an ulcer in his eye that had burst. He was seen promptly and rushed to theatre to have his eye removed. I got him back fighting fit later that day. His recovery has been amazing so far. Angus also has advanced fibrosis of the lungs and this was his second GA at Glenbrae. They know their stuff!! Thank you!!

    The personal touch with staff in this practice is 2nd to none. My cat Josh had been attending at vet closer to home for 6 months..but I wasn't happy with them. So these guys where recommended by my sister. So glad I changed as Josh got all the love and support he needed in his final months. Few days after we lost Josh a sympathy card arrived with a beautiful poem and forget me not seed to plant in his memory Meant so much to me and my family.
