Dogs, Cats and other Pets:
We aim to provide the standard of care we would want for our own animals.
Consultations at our Rogart Surgery are available Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday (9am–5pm), Thursday 9am to 6.30pm and Saturday 9.00am to 1pm. Consultations at our Dornoch Surgery are available,
Please let us know if you would like to see a specific vet, and wherever possible we will try to arrange this. In an emergency, we will admit a patient for immediate treatment.
There are a limited number of appointments available on Saturdays. We only have one vet on duty at this time, so we restrict these appointments to “critical” cases. Please be aware that there may also be unavoidable slippage in timings if the vet has to attend to the more pressing cases.
Satellite Clinics across Sutherland
No appointment is required to attend these clinics, but please note advice on what cases are suitable to attend. Details of times and locations can be found in the clinics section of this website.
We do offer this service as we understand that clients may wish to have their pets seen at home. However, It is can be difficult/impossible to effectively examine and treat an animal without assistance from other staff, and we will only have a very restricted choice of medicines with us with which to treat patients. Therefore, it is usually far better for your pet, (and your pocket!), to have your pet seen, by appointment, at our Rogart Surgery even if this means arranging a lift or Taxi.
Some of the small animal services we provide:
Preventive health care, including vaccinations, parasite control etc.
Routine operations such as neutering dogs and cats: usually require patients to be starved from 8pm the previous evening. Your pet should arrive for surgery at 9am and will usually be ready for discharge by 3.30pm when advice on aftercare will be given.
We can offer heavily discounted rates if microchipping is performed during routine surgery
Pet travel Scheme and Pet Passport provision.
Free weight checks
Free weight clinics on the understanding that any diet foods recommended are purchased from us.
Expert dietary advice and supply of an extensive range of Pet Foods.
Dental treatments (ultrasonic scaler and polisher)
Home visits (See above for advice).
Laboratory facilities: "in-house" blood analysis machine to provide rapid results and access to specialist labs for more complex cases.
Ultrasound scanning for pregnancy detection and diagnostic purposes.
Kenneling for patients requiring "in-patient" care.
(Please note: we do NOT have staff on the premises 24/7 to care for in patients. However, a vet will return to the surgery as needed to attend to the needs of kenneled animals.There will be a charge for this).
Blood pressure measurement by Doppler.
Diabetic patient treatment and control.
Prompt referral to "specialists" when required.
