At the Vet


Natural Nutrition Consultations Diet is the foundation to health. What you feed your companion really matters. We support fresh food feeding e.g. home cooked and raw food diets. However we understand that nutrition is a spectrum and will be guided by your preferences. At Herbal Vet Scotland we offer a range of nutritional consultation services including: Basic Nutrition Consultation- What is the best food to feed, how much, BCS, changing the diet etc. Diet Audit- A look at what you are currently feeding and advise on nutritional excess and deficiency and ways to correct these. Dietary Formulations- A bespoke diet is put together for your animal. All aspects are considered including life stage, body condition score, activity level, dietary preferences, allergies and sensitivities and any health conditions your animal has. These diets are balanced to FEDIAF standards. Clinical guidelines for certain diseases are adhered where appropriate, such as renal disease.

Before acupuncture is given your pet will be examined to assess the condition being treated. As we at Herbal Vet Scotland believe in holistic practice we will assess more than just the presenting complaint and look at things like diet too. Acupuncture can be used to inhibit pain pathways and can also cause the release of hormones and chemical messengers in the body resulting in more generalised pain relief.

Our vets are qualified in both the western approach to acupuncture and hold a diploma in traditional Chinese acupuncture through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society.

Acupuncture can be used for a range of clinical conditions or diseases including:

  • Muskuloskeletal diseases such as arthritis, disc disease, traumatic nerve injury

  • Respiratory problems such as feline asthma

  • Skin problems such as lick granulomas and allergic dermatitis

  • Gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhea

  • Selected reproductive problems



All of the herbs we use at Herbal Vet Scotland are the highest possible grade and quality. We carry a wide array of herbal products. We only use ethical products - either wild-harvested or organically grown.


After carrying out a thorough examination we select an array of herbs to suit your animals needs and blend them into a tailor-made mix, specifically for them.


Herbs are used to help maintain optimal health within the body. Health is not merely an absence of disease, but the proper functioning of all the body systems, working synergistically together.

"We have been going to Jordan and Reagan for nearly three years. We get acupuncture regularly and take some herbal remedies and supplements. We also moved to a raw food diet and can honestly say we have never felt better. We are now eleven, but feel years younger, everyone we meet thinks we look great for our age, modesty, of course, prevents us from agreeing!

We are now attending their beautiful new premises which are fantastic - lovely and relaxing. Mum and Dad are always saying we are so lucky to have such great facilities and care - think they might be jealous. We would certainly recommend Herbal Vet Scotland, we love our visits."
