I lived in this area for 30+ years and have had a number of family pets over that time that, with one small exception when I lived outside Helensburgh, I have always taken to Mr Craig's practice. It is located in a small building which has recently undergone some development after his lovely daughters also qualified and joined the practice. Mr Craig is a wonderful vet. He has always treated my pets with warmth, compassion & professionalism. Every dog I know can be anxious visiting the vet, but Mr Craig is not only reassuring but understands when the dog needs a firm hand & tone to help control & reassure them. Whilst some people may not like the "drop-in" surgeries because of the waiting (he's a popular vet!), some of us find this reassuring. His daughters also joined the practice after qualifying as a vet and they also has their father's lovely professional & personal qualities & nature. Every pet owner I know judges a vet by how they treat their beloved pet - this review is based on my personal experiences as a pet owner who has taken her pets to Mr Craig's surgery over many years!

This is a family veterinary practice with a friendly and highly skilled team. There is no better place to bring your pet. Highly recommended.

This has got much more humane. The Pet Travel Scheme allows pet animals from certain countries to enter the UK without quarantine, as long as they meet certain conditions. The Scheme also means that people in the UK can, having taken their pets to these countries, bring them back without the need for quarantine
