About us...

The Veterinary Centre is a friendly, independent vet practice in Uddingston. Our experienced veterinary surgeons, vet nurses and reception staff take a professional and personal approach to the care of your loved ones – so you know you’re in safe paws.

As a small animal practice, we’ve served the local community for over 30 years, including both our immediate neighbours around Uddingston and also pet owners from around Hamilton, Motherwell and Glasgow.

We understand that your pets are your family, and when you place them under our care, they become our family too.

As a privately-owned, well-established practice, we constantly strive to provide the very highest level of clinical care, client communication and compassion – and we’re proud of our reputation in the local community.

Our practice owners and principal vets, Rebecca Davidson and Heather Waddell, have more than three decades years of combined experience in small animal veterinary care.

Vet nurse training...

As a vet nurse training practice, we’re proud to provide clinical training for our student nurses.

This means we’re inspected by a Veterinary Nurse Approved Centre (responsible to the RCVS), to ensure that our practice meets the standards necessary to provide a suitable environment for training.

Along with our RCVS accreditation, illustrates our commitment to the education and training of all our staff members.
