Kennel Cough Outbreak

As you may have heard, there has been a recent spate of cases of Kennel Cough in the area. This happens once or twice a year in Helensburgh and it is nothing to be too concerned about. The cough is very infectious and spreads easily; however, the infection is very rarely serious. The cough can sound quite unpleasant but dogs with kennel cough are usually still bright and with a good appetite. Treatment isn’t always needed but can help to improve the symptoms.

Make sure your dog is up-to-date with their kennel cough vaccination, especially if they attend kennels, classes or dog-walkers where they are mixing with lots of other dogs regularly. If your dog is coughing please keep them away from other dogs. Get in touch if you are worried about your dog - we can provide advice or treatment as needed.

VetsNow refurbishment and relocation

VetsNow are progressing with their upgrade to provide even better care for your pets, including a new intensive care facility for critical care cases.

While the refurbishment is ongoing, the provision of out-of-hours services has been relocated to the PDSA building in Shamrock Street.  Staff will be able to provide full directions but if you need it for SatNav, the address is 1 Shamrock Street, Glasgow, G4 9JZ.   The telephone number is unchanged - 0141 3323212


Referrals and critical cases will still be seen at the usual location on North Street.

VetsNow temporary relocation

From 7am Sat 16th June – 7am Mon 18th June our 24hr pet emergency service will be based at:

PDSA Pet Hospital
1 Shamrock Street
G4 9JZ

This is to allow for refurbishment of the clinic.  The same dedicated staff will be on hand if you have any concerns.  The clinic will return to its usual location on Monday 18th June.
