Is there a charge for Consultations?
There is a charge for consultations, which is professional medical advice from a qualified Veterinary Surgeon or Registered Veterinary Nurse. This includes all phone, video and physical consultations.
If a physical examination is necessary as part of a consultation, there is no additional charge for that examination.
Some of our surgical procedures include a post-op check which is free of charge. We will instruct you of this after any surgical procedure. Non-surgical procedures, such as Dental and X-ray procedures do not include a free post-op check.
Nurse Clinics are free of charge to Premium Pet Care Plan members.

Out of Hours
We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but there is an increased cost for our Vets to see your pets outside our standard opening hours. To help aid the welfare of your pet and keep your costs reduced, if you believe your pet to be unwell earlier in the day, it’s always best to phone us as soon as possible and not leave it too late.
In order for us to ensure that inpatients can be monitored and cared for alongside any emergencies throughout the night, our night service is operated from our Broughty Ferry practice by our own team of Vets and Nurses.
Our Fixed Price Promise
Since 2004 we’ve believed in offering high quality independent veterinary healthcare at an affordable price. To that end, our Fixed Price Promise now offers even more value to our clients for most surgical and dental procedures. The price that you are quoted is the price that you pay, including all take-home medication, with no surprises.
This is also backed by a surgical complications guarantee, covering any complications which may arise from surgery for two weeks after. During this time we will undertake any medical or surgical treatment to resolve the complication at no additional cost to our clients.
Information on after-care will be given to you during your discharge appointment with our Vets or Nurses.
For routine operations, we ask that you complete an online post-op questionnaire around 5 days after the procedure. You can also upload a photograph or video of the surgical site so we can inspect this.
Once inspected, we will let you know if everything looks well, or if we believe a physical examination would be more appropriate.
The Importance Of Our Nursing Team
Our fantastic nursing team are the backbone of Wallace Vets. As well as supporting our Vets during surgical procedures, they also care, support, clean, and lovingly dote over your Pets from the second they’re admitted into our practices, until the second they leave.
