Welcome to Shetland Vets

Shetland Vets (previously Westside Vets) has two surgeries in the Shetland Islands, one at Bixter and one at Scalloway, where we aim to provide a friendly and professional service to animals and their owners in Shetland. We hope to open a new Branch in Lerwick in 2015.

Shetland Vets is a mixed veterinary practice, so we treat pets, farm animals and horses and we also provide a service to the aquaculture industry. Inevitably, all the vets have their own areas of experience and interest, which gives a good range of expertise within the practice.

Our practice team includes five Veterinary Surgeons, four qualified Veterinary Nurses, our Practice Manager, Practice Administrator and a friendly and well-informed Reception Team. We welcome all enquiries about the practice; please do not hesitate to contact us for an approachable and professional service.

In December 2014 our Practice became Employee Owned, so all of our staff are Partners in the Company.

Shetland Vets is inspected & Accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. For more information, please see the About Us section of the website.
