If I could give Mike Hall, & everyone else at Braid Vets, 10 stars, I would! I've been taking my many cats to Braid Vets since 1983. As well as being exceptionally skilled & knowledgeable, and having all the latest equipment & facilities, they are so patient, kind and compassionate. They love animals & really understand how much my cats mean to me. I trust them to always do the best for my animals. I don't know what I'd do without them. I recommend them most highly.

Braid Vets Leith

319 Leith Walk, Edinburgh EH6 8SA, UK – 0131 553 1366

Our pug was having some stomach issues after a change in diet (recently moved to Scotland and the only food he does well with can’t be found here). Everyone that helped us at Braid Vets was absolutely wonderful! They helped us get back on track and I’m so happy to see our little guy feeling good again. I also found the prices to be extremely reasonable. Thank you Braid Vets for being so kind and for helping us get our pup back to good health.

Always helpful, use them for the cat and two rabbits. Excellent service every time and caring, friendly staff.
