A new breed of American-style supervet is coming to Glasgow.
Aiming to have nursing staff living on the new Pets n Vets premises, the 7,500sqft facility offers a full portfolio of services from its premises in Shawlands.
The current Pollokshaws Road practice will be reassigned as a dedicated vaccine clinic.
Partner Oliver Jackson said: “Our plans for this ambitious new facility – The Roundhouse animal hospital – have been modelled on the American concept of a vet ‘super-practice’, designed to deliver a wide range of pet care services, from nail clipping to vaccinations to some of the most complex surgical veterinary procedures.
“It will enable us to care for animals 24 hours a day as there will be nursing staff living on-site so that animals can receive continuous treatment through the night.”
The cat examination room will have steps leading to a fake tree instead of the usual consultation table.
Mr Jackson added: “This is an ultra-modern arrangement which is aimed at allowing us to examine cats in a more natural way.
“We hope that this will assist us to diagnose many more cases of feline arthritis, a disease that a recent study accepted was often missed by the traditional, consulting table means of examining cats.”
The supervet is expected to be ready for operation this coming May.
