For Pet Owners

For Pet Owners

At Emergency Vets Glasgow, we understand that your pet is a cherished member of your family. Our mission is to provide compassionate, comprehensive care to ensure your furry friends live happy, and healthy lives.

Intro Video

Welcome to Emergency Vets Glasgow - we're here for your pet when they need us most.

We would like to let all pet owners know that we operate as an emergency out-of-hours service, dedicated to providing prompt and compassionate care to pets in urgent need, especially during nights and weekends.

Your pet’s well-being is our top priority. Our dedicated team is committed to providing exceptional emergency treatment with genuine passion and care. We appreciate that by choosing Emergency Vets Glasgow, you’re entrusting us with your pet’s care during their time of need. In times of difficulty, we will always assist you and your pet with the utmost care and compassion.

At Emergency Vets Glasgow, we will endeavour to keep you informed at all stages of your pets’ treatment. Charges will be applied for initial emergency consultation and first aid, and additional charges may apply for hospitalisation, clinical investigations, and treatment. A fee estimate will be provided where possible, and we respectfully request that this is settled before services are provided.  We will never leave an animal in pain or distress.

Please note that ongoing veterinary care will be facilitated by your regular veterinary practice, and it’s your responsibility to arrange transportation and continued care with them. Rest assured, we’ll communicate all clinical information to your regular vet to ensure seamless care for your pet.

Allergies

Pets can develop allergies to a number of things including various environmental factors, food ingredients or flea bites, leading to itching, skin irritation and respiratory issues.

Anxiety & Stress

Pets can experience anxiety and stress due to various factors such as separation anxiety, loud noises, being around other animals or people or changes in their environment, leading to destructive behaviours, excessive vocalisation and withdrawal.
