At Birnam Veterinary Clinic we adhere to the highest quality standard of veterinary care.If we are unable to make a diagnosis or provide care within our scope of practice as a general veterinary practice, we will refer you and your pet to the best veterinary specialists available in the country. We are attached to our patients as if they were our own pets and only the best veterinary care will do for us. Our veterinary staff take as much time as possible in the consulting room to fully explain your pets condition and treatment with costs involved to you the owner and where possible use visual aids to make sure you understand your pet’s condition and treatment.

We have invested in a new digital x-ray facility on site at our practice which means we can do emergency and routine x-rays and develop them immediately should the need arise. This puts less stress on our patients as they can be treated quicker and with less disruption.
In house laboratory
Our slogan, scientific care with a gentle touch, sums up our need for accurate and rapid results when it comes to tests that we need to do on our patients so as to provide the owner with the correct diagnosis and treatment plan for their family pets. To aid us in this endeavour we have blood diagnostic machines for in house use. This means your pets blood results are available quicker and we can start treatment sooner. For blood tests and histology’s that we are unable to perform in house, we use the top South African laboratories.

We all love to cuddle with our pets but sometimes it can be rather smelly and unpleasant! At Birnam Veterinary Clinic, we offer a bath and grooming service for dogs and cats. Evelyn and Goodness have been with the practice for many years and are well known by the clients and their pets as many come in regularly for a groom.
