Welcome to Shetland Vets

Shetland Vets (previously Westside Vets) has three surgeries in the Shetland Islands, at Bixter, Scalloway and Lerwick. We provide a friendly and professional service to animals and their owners. We are proud to be a full service Veterinary Practice, treating the wide variety of animals who live here. Under the Guidelines set by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, we provide a 24 hour emergency service to clients of the Practice, and also for visitors to the Isles.

Our practice team includes six Veterinary Surgeons, four qualified Veterinary Nurses, our Accounts Administrator, 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 and Accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. For more information, please see the About Us section of the website.
