Quality, professional veterinary care, tailored for you and your pet.




Happy New Year to all our clients and patients! I hope 2018 will be good to all of us!


There are a few little changes here at JIVS too- first you may have noticed that Elaine, our RVN, has gone missing! She is currently on maternity leave having had her first baby, a little girl, so congratulations to her and her family! Meanwhile, Melissa, our newly qualified RVN has stepped into the breach. Many of you will already know Melissa, as she did much of her nurse training here with us, so has actually been around since 2016! Congratulations to her on her graduation, and we welcome her to the team.


There must be something in the water here at JIVS, as Anne, our part time vet, is also expecting and is going on Maternity leave in the next couple of months! As many of you may know, we have had to close our books at the end of last year. Things have calmed down a little and we have reopened them, as we are hoping to maybe get another part-time vet- watch this space! We don’t want to get too big, as we like the benefits of a small team, but adding an extra vet will hopefully make it easier to accommodate all our patients and give us vets a bit more breathing space.


We have quite a few Student Vet nurses around at the practice just now as well- many of whom you will have seen, as they have all trained with us in previous years. Amy is soon to be qualified from CAW at Napier University, Morven is in 2nd year at Oatridge and Alyth is in 1st year at Perth and Highlands, having previously completed her Animal Care Assistant qualification with us last year. Its lovely to have them all back!
