Quality, professional veterinary care, tailored for you and your pet.
JULIE INNES VETS, HAMILTON
No-one likes to think about their pet’s final days. We all love our pets so much-
they are part of our family, and having to make decisions at the end of their life
can be very difficult.
We, as pet owners ourselves, fully appreciate how distressing this time can be for
you and your family, and we endeavour to make it as stress-free as possible for you
and your pet. To this end we have a separate room where you can spend as long as
you wish , and can have privacy from other patients and clients. We are happy to
spend time talking with you about your concerns and wishes regarding your pet, and
any decisions will be unhurried and unforced. You will be afforded as much time and
space as you need, and on such occasions we do not insist on immediate payment, so
you can leave without having to go back to reception.
We employ the services of a pet crematorium in Larkhall, who collect your animal
from us after euthanasia. There are various options you may like to consider. Pets
can be cremated individually and their ashes returned to you if you would prefer.
Ashes are available to scatter in a favourite spot, or to keep in an urn or casket.
If you prefer not to have your pets ashes returned, that is fine. Should you prefer
to bury your pet, we will advise you on how to do so safely. The website for the
Pet crematorium is here.
We do carry out house visits when possible at times like this. Ideally this would
be arranged in advance, as the nature of our work means we cannot always guarantee
we can come immediately, although we will always do our best for you.
We realise that being there at the end of your animal’s life is one of the most important
parts of our job, and we want to get it right, for you and your pet.
