About us

The Pets’n’Vets Family are an award-winning group of small animal practices that have been serving Glasgow and the surrounding areas for 50 years. Our sites are based in Blantyre, Hairmyres, Crookfur, Queens Park, Queen Margaret Drive & Scotstoun. We are equally proud of our purpose-built Veterinary Roundhouse Hospital in Glasgow’s Southside, providing both primary care and referral surgery services year-round.

Due to expansion, we are recruiting into two of our teams. These positions are ideal for vets who thrive on being part of a supportive team, building rapport with our longstanding client base and providing a high level of clinical care for our patients. For those looking to expand their caseload and be part of developing a new phase of services in our established clinics, this is a perfect opportunity.

We have a wonderful, friendly team at Pets’n’Vets, and any new associates will be warmly welcomed. As a team, we all support each other, with regular clinical and whole team meetings. The team are all passionate, dedicated veterinary professionals who pride themselves on offering high standards of care while identifying areas to further improve. Our large Vet team includes a variety of different experience levels and includes certificate holders in Surgery, ECC, Cardiology and Medicine. You will also be supported by experienced Nursing, Patient Care Assistants (PCA), Reception and Admin teams.
