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


SEPT 2019


It’s been a busy year for JIVS! Anne came back from maternity leave to cover Saturdays again, and Anna went away on maternity leave (babies abounding at our surgery!) Alyth, Iona and Laura joined the team as student nurses, and Emma-Louise came back as our veterinary care assistant. Finally, Antonia rejoined us- now as a qualified vet, increasing our full time vets to 3, which has allowed us to reopen our books. The practice has been getting busier and busier, so her arrival will help us make sure we have plenty of times to see your animals promptly.


We lost our darling demon cat, Harris, last September, aged 19.5 years. He is sorely missed, and even being able to eat your lunch without being intimidated into giving him half, or being able to walk down the hall without being swiped doesn’t make up for him not being around to give you a friendly hiss in the morning.


We upgraded our ultrasound machine this year, making it easier for us to get better quality images of your pet, and the staff have been hard at work with various CPD (continued professional development) studies. As vets and nurses, we have to do hours of CPD every year, so we can remain up to date with the latest developments in veterinary medicine. Earlier this month a team of us headed to the Scottish BSAVA conference, where we learned a lot, but we also do individual learning projects too.


We were delighted to be awarded by threebestrated as one of the top vets in South Lanarkshire again this year- thank you to all our lovely clients who rated us! We were also touched to be nominated for Pet Plan’s practice of the year award- thanks again! We are truly lucky to have so many lovely clients and patients, we are genuinely grateful for all your support!


As the summer disappears and the nights get darker, it will soon be fireworks season again, a time I know many of you dread! Check out the section on helping your pet deal with any firework phobia, and have a plan in advance.
