About Us

We are an RCVS accredited small animal practice with our main site located in the South of Aberdeen and a consulting-only branch located in Cults to the West of the city. Our ‘work family’ consists of three full time vets (one of which is working towards a PgC in Dermatology and another who has a medicine certificate and is working towards a PgC in Cardiology) and a part time vet/ acupuncturist. Aberdeenshire really does have it all, majestic mountains, and endless countryside along with stunning coastline perfect for all manner of water sports. For those who are more city-minded, the benefits of being the oil capital of Europe are reflected in the many restaurants, café’s, cocktail bars, arts venues, theatres, comedy clubs and live music venues. To boot Aberdeen has great transport links to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Orkney, Shetland, and London along with many other UK and European hubs.
