How to make an appointment

To make an appointment you can either:

Referral Communication

We will then make the appointment directly with the client. Please ensure the contact telephone number given for the client is one they can be contacted on during office hours. We aim to ensure that you are kept informed about patients that you have referred to us through;

  • Discharge instructions - every client is provided with written instructions at the time of discharge and advised to take them to you if their pet requires a follow up appointment with you.
  • Case reports - A case report will be sent directly to you within 24-48 hours of the patient being discharged.

Out of hours emergency service

We offer a dedicated emergency service to look after your clients pets while your practice is closed. If you would like to transfer a patient to us for overnight care, please call the Hospital on 0141 330 7690 to discuss the case with our on-call vet (after 5pm Monday - Friday and anytime on Saturday and Sunday). We request that you email all relevant patient history to or supply a hard copy to the owner to bring to their appointment.
