We Are Committed to Your Pet’s Health

Providing excellent care throughout all services.

Providing a Professional & Honest Approach

Scottish Vet Referrals is a dedicated veterinary referral centre located in the beautiful surroundings of the Inverness Campus.

We are the only independent referral practice in the North of Scotland, owned by the partners.


About Our Practice

We currently provide ophthalmology, internal medicine and oncology, CT scanning, cardiorespiratory and surgical services; delivering dedicated expertise with state of the art specialist equipment in a custom-designed facility.

For the future, our desire is to augment our team with veterinary surgeons who are experts in other areas of veterinary medicine. The facility has been designed to accommodate this expansion in service and expertise.

If your pet is in need of immediate medical attention, in the first instance please contact your own veterinary practice.


Refer a case

To refer a case, please email over a full medical history (including the owner contact details) with a brief description of the condition as well as any radiographs, blood tests and photos. 

Once we have received the relevant information, we will be in touch with the client to arrange an appointment.
