    Putting our clients and our staff first!

Donview Veterinary Centre is an award winning Veterinary Practice that has been trusted with the care of pets, horses & farm animals in the North East of Scotland for over 100 years.
Our Vision: To offer the most complete care available to animals and our clients every time.

We will achieve this by:

  • Treating your animals as we would our own.
  • Treating every pet owner, horse owner or farmer as an individual.
  • Investing in our facilities, services and staff on an ongoing basis.
  • Ensuring our staff are friendly and helpful at all times.
  • Regularly reviewing our service and our care standards.
  • Ensuring we offer affordable veterinary care to all our clients.

We are your independent practice owned and run locally by our directors.      

We also promise to: 

  • Never to set our staff sales targets meaning care is based on the best for your animal only.
  • To allow our Vets the freedom to use the best treatments available to them not just those with the highest profit margin.
  • That we will always supply our own emergency service in Inverurie, meaning your pets are treated by our vets who have access to your pet’s records, that we can supply affordable emergency care and that you don’t have to make a trip into Aberdeen when your pet needs to be seen the most.
Our Guarantee: We guarantee to give you an appointment on the same day you call if your pet’s condition is critical. 

Our History: The practice was started in the early 1900s by Mr Niven MRCVS who lived and practised from 13 Jackson Street, Inverurie. On Mr Niven’s death the house was sold and Mr Ironside moved the surgery to premises in a building behind the Victoria Hotel now the British Legion Club. The practice then moved premises to Nos 29/31 North Street. In 2001 the practice moved to its present location in our purpose built premises in Blackhall Industrial Estate. The Kintore branch was opened in September 2005.
