The University of Glasgow launches Pet Practice

Published: 29 June 2022

The School of Veterinary Medicine is opening a new veterinary practice available to the UofG community

The University of Glasgow Pet Practice, led by the School of Veterinary Medicine, will be based at the current Small Animal Hospital in the Garscube Estate Campus and led by Dr Paul Andrew Eynon. With three new clinicians already on board, the practice is open to pet owners within the UofG community. A 20% discount will be offered to all University staff.

The practice will help UofG veterinary students develop more general practice opportunities in line with their accreditation needs. The service comes only a few years after the University opened its own Equine first opinion service, which has been very successful.

Prof Ewan Cameron, Head of the School of Veterinary Medicine, said: “We are thrilled to be opening the UofG Pet Practice. The primary reason for doing so is to benefit our students, and to help them achieve a consistent learning experience, but we are also delighted to be offering an additional service to pet owners, and we look forward to giving their animals the best care possible.”

“We also hope the Pet Practice will be of service to our own UofG community of pet owners.”

Currently, the Vet School offers a ‘second opinion’ referral service, with the Small Animal Hospital already offering a first opinion emergency out-of-hours service to patients from neighbouring practices. The UofG Pet Practice will close the loop on a full spectrum of care available to pet owners here at the University. 

 Services will include

  • Routine Health Examinations
  • Sick pet consultations
  • Puppy, kitten & rabbit vaccinations
  • Annual health examinations & booster vaccinations
  • Routine neutering surgeries
  • Routine diagnostic procedures
  • Dental procedures
  • Other surgical procedures
  • Flea, working & diet nurse consultations
  • On-site OOH cover
