We are open for essential care only
In line with government guidelines, we are only offering medically essential appointments, so please contact the practice team before travelling. Our opening hours may also vary, so please monitor our webpage to keep up to date with the latest information.
We are taking steps to help keep you and our colleagues safe:
- If you do need to visit, we ask that only one person per pet comes along, to help reduce the number of people in the waiting area at any one time.
- Social distancing is crucial at this time. When arriving, you may be required to call ahead and wait to be invited in by a member of our team. You will be informed if this is necessary when you call us to make your appointment.
- Once inside the practice, we ask that you please respect a two metre distance from our colleagues and other clients.
- We are only accepting card payments to help minimise contact between you and our colleagues.
- If you can’t visit the practice and are concerned about your pet’s health, please contact us to discuss available options.
We will continue to share regular updates here and on our Facebook page. We thank you for your patience at this time.

I’m Lauren, one of your vets, and I was delighted to join Vets4Pets in November 2019, shortly after graduating from the University of Edinburgh.
I am really enjoying getting to know you all and caring for your lovely animals. I definitely have a soft spot for labradors, and more recently golden retrievers, since my sister got her puppy(pictured!).
I grew up on a farm on the Isle of Arran so I have always been surrounded by animals. We currently have sheep, chickens, horses and a black labrador at home.
Outside of work I enjoy running, riding my horse and competing in triathlons.
I knew I always wanted to work with animals and studied Animal Biology at Glasgow University before attending Edinburgh College to gain my Level £ Diploma in Veterinary Nursing in 2014. Since qualifying I have attended a number of different courses to improve my nursing skills and hope to complete a certificate in Surgical Nursing.
I joined the Vets4Pets team in Pollokshaws at the start of 2020 after taking a year off maternity leave to spend time with my daughter and I also got to spend more time with my furbaby Rosie. Being a Sprocker Spaniel she is full of beans and hugs and is a great companion. As much as I love most animal, Spaniels definitely hold a special place in my heart.
I love my job and look forward to working with you all in the future.
I have recently joined the Vets4Pets team in May 2019 after finishing 6th year of High School, although, you may have seen me before as I have been coming to the practice since 2017 for work experience.
I love all animals and getting to know each of their different personalities, I have previously had 2 bunnies called Molly and Patch and a wee cavachon called Lottie who is 3 and is absolutely spoiled rotten but loves it!!
I have always wanted to be a vet and hope to one day achieve this, although for now I love meeting you and your pets and welcoming you to our practice.
Vets4Pets Pollokshaws is committed to bringing you affordable, high quality care via a modern, well equipped practice, including a lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray and ultrasound. Plus, on site car parking too!
The friendly team can't wait to meet all of their new clients!
