For your visit to Oak Tree Vet Centre…
As you come from the city centre, Oak Tree Vet Centre is on the left hand side of Queensferry Road at Barnton between Parkgrove Avenue and the traffic lights at Drum Brae.
There’s no need to worry about parking as we have our own off road, private car park. So, please park in one of the marked bays on the right as you drive in and simply walk your pet a few steps to our front door.
If you or your pet finds walking difficult, please drive right up the ramp so that you have easy access to the front door. We are also happy to help any of our clients to and from their cars. If you need any assistance, do not hesitate to ask.
Our facility is wheelchair accessible.
You will then be welcomed by a member of our friendly reception team, who will let the vet know you are ready for your consultation.
If you have a dog. …
We would ask that you bring your dog on a lead; if you forget, we can lend you one. Not only could your dog escape from you whilst in the car park or waiting room, it helps prevent a clash with another dog already in the waiting room. Using a lead also saves distress to cats and other smaller pets that may be easily startled and considerably upset by an unwanted intrusion.
We would ask that your dog is clean and dry on arrival. It is not a pleasant task to examine a dirty dog and lesions on the skin can easily be missed, due to a matted coat. Also, clean dogs help keep the surgery fresh and clean for the enjoyment of other patients and it saves us using some of your consultation time cleaning the rooms for the next patient.
Please save the run in the park or swim in the sea as an “after vet treat”.
Please do not be embarrassed if your pet passes faeces in the car park but do let us know so that we can clear the mess away.
We would be grateful for your close attention to prevent urine marking inside the waiting room and consulting room.
