IMPORTANT CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION - PLEASE READ

Please note that due to the Coronavirus Outbreak we are only able to offer essential treatment in accordance with the guidance set out by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. We are sorry that we are therefore not able to offer vaccines, boosters or routine health checks at this time. Routine or elective surgery will also be cancelled.

We are able to complete a vaccine course where a first vaccine has already been administered and a second vaccine is due. Please contact us if your pet is due a second vaccination.

We ask that there is only one member of the public  in the practice at any time. You must please phone us from your car (or outside) when you arrive and we will let you know when you are able to come into the practice.

We are of course here for emergency care of your pets and you should telephone us immediately if your pet is unwell.

Our Opening Hours have also changed to 8.30 to 17.00 weekdays and 9.00 – 11.00 on Saturdays

Please note that payments will be taken over the phone wherever possible.

Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.

Best wishes from Duncan and the whole team at Roborough Vet.

We pride ourselves on being a small, family owned practice that ensures consistency and a personal touch to your pet’s treatment. Clients become friends and pets are treated as though they are our own.

 We endeavour to deliver clinical standards that are up-to-date and of the highest order in both medicine and surgery. Our nurses are dedicated and extremely friendly and helpful. We also focus on holistic treatment and always try to promote preventative measures, to ensure your pet’s healthy living. Free advice can be offered by our nurses on flea and worm prevention, dental care, diets and most behavioural issues.

Our holistic approach means that we treat the whole patient, taking into account your pet’s general quality of life, rather than just the symptoms of the disease or ailment. This should not be confused with Homeopathy.

Hello, I’m Duncan MacWhirter, vet and practice owner at Roborough Vet.

Along with my wife Hazel and our wonderful practice team, I’d like to welcome you to Roborough Vet. In a world where bigger isn’t always better, I like to think our practice offers something special.

We always take the time to get to know our clients and their pets and work with you to make sure they stay happy and healthy. Come to Roborough Vet – arrive as a client, leave as a friend.
