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.
