  • Aestiva anaesthetic machines in both theatres, CT and endoscopy
  • Nerve stimulator and portable ultrasound machine for ultrasound guided nerve blocks.

And that is just the ground floor! We have another two floors to expand into...

The Team

We are a vibrant, friendly and collaborative team, who all work together to provide outstanding patient and client care. We currently take referrals in feline and canine medicine, soft tissue surgery, orthopaedics, cardiology and neurology, supported by a team of Specialist Anaesthetists and Diagnostic Imagers. Our team of interns ensure hospitalised patients receive care out-of-hours, although we are always available to support them.

Our expanding nursing team has a wealth of experience in referral practice and supports our vision of providing excellence in patient care. In turn, the nurses are assisted by the veterinary care assistants and we also have a strong client care team to deal with administrative aspects.

As part of the Linnaeus Group we also have access to support from a wide number of referral hospitals.

The Location

VSS is located in Livingston, just off junction 3 of the M8 motorway and near to the Cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, or for those who prefer the great outdoors, the Scottish Highlands and coastline are all within easy reach.

We are proud to be part of the Linnaeus family of practices who share our passion and commitment to the future of the veterinary world. Our Associates are fundamental to our success and we are proud to count some of the finest specialists, veterinary surgeons and nurses in the UK and Ireland in our group.
