Our History

Intergrated conventional and holistic veterinary care

Glenbrae Veterinary Clinic was founded in January 1990 by Wendy McGrandles.

A Glasgow graduate Wendy had spent several years gaining experience in a variety of practices before deciding to start a new clinic in Bearsden.

Glenbrae moved into extended premises in Baljaffray in 1996 and in September 1997 a second surgery was established in Dumbarton.

The practice continued to go from strength to strength and in June 2007 we moved a short distance into larger premises in Stockiemuir Avenue, Bearsden. Dumbarton too outgrew its original premises and moved around the corner into a larger unit in Station Rd.

A third clinic was added in October 2016 in Muirhead. All the clinics offer a similar approach to health and disease.

In July 2019 Glenbrae joined the Independent Vet Care family.

Wendy has always had a keen interest in an integrated approach to health and disease and her team aim to provide the best conventional treatment possible along with a range of alternative therapies .

Most of our patients are dogs and cats but we are also seeing an increasing number of small furries, birds and more exotic pets. 

Our enthusiastic and experienced team of vets and nurses aim to provide the best integrated veterinary care tailored to your pet’s needs and along with our dedicated client care advisors will treat you and your pet with empathy and professional courtesy

Please do not be afraid to ask for our help. All of our staff have pets of their own therefore we understand that your pet is a much loved member of the family. We know how stressful and upsetting your pet’s illness can be and will always be on hand to support you through any difficult times.


Vision Statement

As a member of the Independent Vet Care family our vision with their help is to deliver the very best, high standard integrated conventional and holistic care tailored to your pets needs.
