5 “Silent” Killers of Cats

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...

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

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?

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.

  • I have only been attending Glenbrae Vets for a few months and always found them friendly and very helpful. However ... I phoned last night at 6.10pm to ask if it was okay to give my dog anti-histimine as he was covered with a red rash. I was told that they would like to see him at the clinic but I would be liable for an 'out of hours' charge of £84 ... AT 6.10pm. I have no problem with providing care for my dog and necessary fees, but this isn't a late or early time and any previous vet's that I have visited have usually had a surgery until 7pm at night! I am afraid that I will be taking Archie elsewhere ... I cannot afford an additional £84 each time I visit the vet 'after hours'!

    positive review We have taken all our dogs to this vet for many years now. Yesterday our beautiful Chocolate Labrador Ben had clearly reached the stage where he could go on no longer. I called the vet and although I was almost incoherent crying, the nurse on reception was able to gently talk me through things and arrange for Debbie to come to the House. Debbie and the nurse arrived later and agreed there was only one way to go now. I can honestly say the service provided was just amazing. Ben was gently helped on his way in the most loving way with no stress or briskness. We were all able to cuddle him and tell him how loved he was and laugh through our tears about some of his previous visits to see Debbie. I could never have taken him to the surgery at this point and am so glad this was a option for us. Thanks to everybody involved in Bens care over the last wee while. You really are a great team. ❤️

  • 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.

    The staff here are absolutely excellent. I have a very challenging and feisty chihuahua and the staff are wonderful and patient with him. Always a friendly face at the desk and so accommodating. Would thoroughly recommend entrusting your beloved pet in their hands.

  • positive review 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.

    positive review 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.

  • I've used Glenbrae vets since 1996 when I moved my then yorkies Samson & Delilah best decision ever. Wendy and the team are part of my pets lives and we are part of theirs. Glenbrae is a community of wellbeing and happiness not just for pets but for their owners too. Glad to see the growth and success that's what you call family Buster and Gnasher are in the safest hands ever!!

    Cracking vetinary service, my dog Irma had a badly cut paw, that required stitches. Done a brilliant job, and to make my experience even better, all the women that work there are all good lookers.
