Our Practice

We are proud to be the only family run, Independent vets serving the West of Edinburgh and one of only 3 Independent practices based in Edinburgh . We feel that Thistle Vets being owned and run by our vets rather than being part of a Corporate chain, that the business owners Donald and James can concentrate on giving our pets and clients the best possible care and value for money.

The Practice is located on the west side of Edinburgh and we are well situated for clients from: Colinton, Corstophine, Craiglockhart, Currie, Balerno  Parkhead, Shandon, Sighthill, Gorgie, Chesser, Wester Hailes and many other areas.

There are two centres one at Clovenstone at the edge of Wester Hailes on the Clovenstone Roundabout off the Edinburgh By-pass [A720] at the ‘Baberton’ junction, and the other at Chesser on New Mart Road by the Corn Exchange and Asda.

Sunday appointments are now available at Chesser 10am-1pm
