Woodside Veterinary Group offers a comprehensive range of services.
Our Torphins surgery is on Woodside Road directly off the A980.
Our reception staff will welcome you and ask you to have a seat in our waiting room where you can browse our amply stocked shelves for food, beds, accessories and many other treats for your furry friends!
We also stock a large selection of items for our farm and equine clients.
We have weigh scales available and our staff will be happy to help and advise you on calorie control for your pet.
Mainly these are used for our day patients recovering post surgery but can be used to hospitalise cases overnight if required. We do not have someone living on the premises but the duty vet attends based on clinical need and veterinary surgeons judgement. If you have concerns regarding hospitalisation of your pets please don't hesitate to ask us.
Our 2nd kennels
These are used to separate cats from noisy dogs! They also contain a large walk in kennel for our larger patients, or if we need to provide isolation facilities.
Our consulting rooms
There are two consulting rooms at Torphins. This allows us to consult and run nursing clinics concurrently.
Our X-Ray theatre and endoscopy
We have a digital X-Ray machine allowing high quality images to be created and easy electronic sharing of images to specialists for 2nd opinions if required. We also have an endoscope to allow detailed work ups of cases without invasive surgery.
Our in-house laboratory
We have analysers to get same day blood results which allows us to carry out pre-anaesthetic checks on older or sick patients and we can run profiles for investigation of illnesses in all species too. Our new haematology and biochemistry machines are the same specification as used by external labs. We can also gain almost instant results for T4 for thyroid cases, and glucose and fructosamine for diabetic cases.
We also carry out microscope examinations of skin, urine and faeces to aid diagnoses. We routinely use external labs for specialised detailed testing where necessary.
Torphins dispensing area
