Small Animal Facilities
Clyde Vet Group has three branches within it's small animal division. Our main hospital is in a purpose built premise next to New Lanark Market and this is where our emergency service operates from. There are two satellite branches which provide a more convenient service for our clients that are further away and these are in Wishaw and Auchenheath.
We are a registered Hospital Status Clinic. This is the highest level available to small animal practices in the UK and is awarded by the Royal college of Veterinary Surgeons (the governing body of our profession). For more information about the practice standards scheme you can follow the link provided - https://animalowners.rcvs.org.uk/accredited-practices/about-the-practice....
Our hospital has one dog ward, a cat ward and an isolation ward. Spacious walk in kennels enable large dogs and even giant breeds, such as St. Bernards, to be comfortably hospitalised.
The dedicated cat ward ensures all feline patients are as stress free as possible and our isolation ward minimises the risk of spread of contagious diseases to other inpatients. Both our main cat and dog wards are fully air conditioned. In our cat ward we aim to provide a quiet and calm environment by using pheromone plug ins and sprays along side special cat beds and platforms that allow a greater feeling of security. Fluid pumps and syringe drivers are available to ensure animals on fluid therapy and intravenous medication receive accurate and well regulated therapy and we have an oxygen cage available for patients that would benefit from supplemented Oxygen.
