The Small Animal Division is centred in a purpose-built premise by New Lanark market in the town of Lanark, in the county of South Lanarkshire. This allows us to provide the most appropriate environment for the comfort and treatment of our client's pets. This is also the facility from which we operate our emergency out-of-hours service.
This building has many features that allow us to provide the highest quality care to our patients. For example, we have separate kennel wards for cats and dogs, enabling us to ensure as stress-free an environment as possible for your pet during their stay with us. These kennels are also fully air-conditioned and provided with piped oxygen for the care of our more severely ill patients.
The anaesthetic and surgery suite at this small animal centre is one of the best in this part of Scotland and aims to provide the cleanest environment in which to perform all our operations. Once again these rooms are fully air-conditioned and provided with piped oxygen. All surgery is performed with complex anaesthetic monitors, allowing us to maximise the safety of our patients whilst undergoing their procedures, and all staff in the suite are required to wear special surgical clothes to minimise contamination of the area from outside.
We also have our own fully equipped laboratory providing us with detailed information from which to provide the most rapid and effective diagnosis. In recognition of the quality of these facilities the governing body of our veterinary profession, the RCVS, has awarded the Lanark building "Veterinary Hospital" status. This is the highest level available to small animal practices in the UK under their Practice Standards Scheme (see RCVS Practice Standards Scheme for more information).
Although the practice is based in Lanark we also have branches in Wishaw and Auchenheath, which allow us to provide a wider service to our clients within Lanarkshire.
The branches at Wishaw and Auchenheath already provide a full veterinary service, but in our constant efforts to maintain a quality service, we have just completed a major refurbishment in the Wishaw premises.
