Vetkind Edinburgh is a caring and convenient mobile vets, serving pets in Edinburgh and surrounding areas. Run by two experienced vets, Martha and Mhairi, our mission is to provide a stress-free and compassionate alternative to the traditional veterinary clinic. By visiting you and your pet in the comfort of your own home, your pet can get the care he or she needs without stress or hassle. Vetkind gives you a personal service, creating a lasting bond between your vet, you and your pet.
- Home visits – Vet care in your home is the kind thing to do for your pet as it minimises stress.
- Long consults – Vetkind ensures you and your pet get the time you need. Our consultations last 30-45 minutes – much longer than the usual offering in a traditional practice.
- A personal service – Our personal, home-based service creates a lasting bond between your vet, you and your pet.
- Online booking – We are one of the few practices that offer convenient online booking of appointments.
- Independent practice – Vetkind is one of the few practices left in Edinburgh that is independent and not run by a large corporate group.
Vetkind offers everything you would expect from a vet and more.
Here's just some of the services we offer.
Whilst we love to come and see your pets in their homes, some things need a little more of a specialist environment and equipment.
Vaccinations & health checks
Whether you are getting a new puppy or kitten, or need an annual booster, we can advise on which vaccination protocol is appropriate for your pet.
Microchips are essential for reuniting lost pets with their owners . They are a legal requirement for dogs and are advisable for all cats.
Both Martha and Mhairi are approved Official Veterinarians. We can assist you with pet holidays and exports.
Management of chronic & geriatric conditions
As our pets age, we sometimes put medial conditions down to ‘old age’. We can help you recognise the signs of common geriatric diseases and manage these diseases in the comfort of your own home.
Acute medical conditions
We can examine your pet if they are under the weather to advise on and carry out any treatment or investigations that may be necessary.
Blood pressure check
High blood pressure is a threat in older cats that can easily go unchecked until it causes serious problems such as strokes and blindness.
We understand making the decision to say goodbye to your companion is an extremely stressful and emotional time. At Vetkind, Martha and Mhairiwill be with you every step of the way.
Flea and worm prevention
We can advise on and prescribe the most appropriate parasite prevention products for your pet to keep creepy crawlies at bay.
A visit from our nurse can be just the thing for you and your pet. Just like our vet visits, we offer long appointments of 30-40 minutes that allow us to get to know you and your pet and address any concerns or questions you might have.
