The Roundhouse Veterinary Hospital is based in Pollockshaws and was opened by television presenter Carol Smillie and MP for Glasgow South Stewart McDonald on 19 February.

Raising the bar

According to staff at the 7,500 sq ft customised facility, the practice will deliver a “step change” to the standard of veterinary care available in the city, providing “comprehensive” pet care seven days a week; including late night consultations.

The practice features:

  • separate cat and dog waiting and consultation rooms
  • separate inpatient wards
  • two sterile theatres with a separate scrub area
  • a designated dental theatre
  • “state-of-the-art” diagnostic suites
  • a private area for owners needing time, maybe to make difficult decisions
  • a “relaxed room” for health discussions between vets and owners

Suite of services

Pets‘n’Vets partner Oliver Jackson said The Roundhouse Veterinary Hospital will deliver “the whole suite of pet care services” from nail clipping and vaccinations to complex surgical veterinary procedures, at a “sensible cost” and “the highest clinical standards”.

“It enables us to care for animals 24 hours a day, as nursing staff are living on-site,” he said. “This, along with having vets qualified to RCVS Advanced Practitioner Status in cardiology and surgery within our staff, means our team are well placed to transform veterinary care across the city.”
