Opening of a new veterinary practice in Fife with a purpose-built clinic

3 Bridges Vets, in Dunfermline, was founded by local vet, Hannah McKerrow, and her husband Brice.

The purpose-built clinic offers services for pets, farm animals and horses.

Great attention has been paid to the design of the new veterinary practice to ensure the comfort of all animals. Dogs and cats have separate waiting rooms and wards, and all kennels have specialized orthopedic beds.

There are discreet second entrances and exits to the consultation rooms, for nervous dogs or for situations where owners would not want to return to the waiting room.

An avid sheep veterinarian, Hannah has included a large bespoke animal facility, where farm animals can be brought in for procedures, as well as facilities for advanced sheep breeding services.

Explaining her decision to start a new veterinary practice, Hannah says, “The veterinary industry is currently facing many challenges, but I knew I wanted to start my own practice.

“Building it from the ground up allowed us to create a clinic specifically designed to serve my patients, clients and staff. We’re so excited for the future – it’s great to see customers coming in the door rather than merchants!

The firm will also cover its own after-hours services. She said: “I know how much clients appreciate seeing their own vet in an emergency, and I want the practice and our vets to have that continuity of care for our patients.”

The company is based in Fordell Firs, Hillend.
