Welcome to Westside Vets, Shetland

Westside Vets have 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.

Westside 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 October 2009 the Westside vets was inspected by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) and became an Accredited Practice under their Practice Standards Scheme. In Novemer 2013 we were delighted to gain the higher accreditation of "General Practice". There are currently only three accredited practices in the north of Scotland. For more information, please see the About Us section of the website.
