Who are we?

Veterinary Specialists Scotland is a new multi-disciplinary referral hospital at Deer Park, Livingston, close to Edinburgh and Glasgow.

We have created a state-of-the-art facility and assembled a team of highly motivated Specialists, nurses and support colleagues, to deliver the best possible clinical care to pets from all over Scotland and Northern England.

We are starting our journey with a range of clinical services that will expand over time. Our current Specialists have a wealth of experience and are focused on developing and delivering an individually tailored treatment plan for every referred patient.

The founding team believe that promoting a supportive, stimulating and enjoyable work environment lets us provide not only outstanding care for our patients, but also a fantastic experience for their owners, our referring veterinarians and our own colleagues.

In addition to our clinical goals we pride ourselves on our knowledge and expertise, and are keen to become a leading educational centre and resource. We will host continuing education events for veterinary surgeons and nurses, as well as for clients, and we will also be a registered training practice for future veterinary Specialists and nurses.

We look forward to your company on the journey.
