Your Visit

We will make it a comfortable experience

When visiting Aberdeen Veterinary Referrals, we want you to feel as comfortable as possible. You’ll be greeted by our friendly reception team who will then notify the referral vet surgeon that you and your pet have arrived.

We understand that when visiting a veterinary referral practice, it can be a worrying time for both you and your pet. Through our expertise, knowledge, and experience, we hope to provide you and your pet with a positive experience to ensure you feel   as comfortable as possible.


Upon arrival at the hospital, you will be greeted by one of our friendly reception team who will invite you to have a seat in our comfortable and spacious waiting room.  Help yourself to complimentary refreshments which are available for both you and your pet.


You will be welcomed into your appointment by one of our referral vet surgeons, who will examine your pet fully and discuss the best course of action. During this time, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss your pet further.

Further appointments/admission

Depending on your decision, your pet may need to be admitted to our inpatient ward. This is usually carried out by one of our qualified registered veterinary nurses within the referral hospital.
