Hospitalisation

Whether your pet is  in for a routine day procedure or unfortunately feeling poorly be assured he or she will have a clean warm and reassuring stay.

You can be sure they will be made comfortable for their stay with staff looking after all of their needs.

We are fortunate in all clinics to have space for separate dog and cat wards with walk in kennels for our larger patients. Our smaller pets such as rabbits are kept away from dogs and noise to reduce stress. In Bearsden and Muirhead we have isolation facilities so that contagious patients requiring barrier nursing can be kept away from healthy pets.

Our kennels are all stainless steel which allows them to be further cleaned and disinfected between patients. It also acts as an insulator allowing us to keep your pet warm or cool depending on their individual needs.

Each patient will have their cage set for their needs, lined with newspapers to absorb any little accidents, a vet bed which is a specially designed dry to wet bedding to draw moisture away from your pet and keep them warm, comfy and dry. Older patients may require thicker bedding, cats will have litter trays, while rabbits + guinea pigs will have hay + a hiding house, if they like to use a litter tray please let us know. Small rodents will have hamster type cages with sawdust, house and wheel.

Patients are monitored closely by the vet and nurse on duty, this includes regular heart rate, respiratory rate, temperature checks (if required), toilet breaks/ tray clean and of course lots of TLC (our favourite part).

If there is anything special your pet likes to eat or any special commands or tickling spots be sure to tell us to help make your pet feel as at home as can be.

Remember we all have pets and we only know too well how worrying it is to leave them, so we treat all patients as we would our own.
