Our Surgeries

The Abbey Veterinary Group was first established over a century ago and has been serving the agricultural, equine and pet owning communities of Renfrewshire, Inverclyde and North Ayrshire ever since.

We are a two centre practice based in Canal Street, Paisley and in Murdieston Street, Greenock.

Our main interest is the care and welfare of our patients, whether they are cattle, sheep, horses,cats, dogs, rabbits, or the ever increasing number of small mammals and exotic pets. We are available to our clients for advice on all healthcare matters. Our vets are able to treat all animals with expertise, care and compassion.


RCVS accredited practice


We are an RCVS accredited practice. This means we have passed rigorous inspections to ensure we have met a very high standard of hygiene, 24-hour emergency cover, staff training, certain types of equipment and cost estimation procedures.

The regulatory function of the RCVS means that users of veterinary services can be assured that their veterinary surgeon or registered/listed veterinary nurse is properly qualified and fit to practice.

The RCVS can also offer reassurance that those practice premises which it accredits as part of the Practice Standards Scheme meet stringent standards.

With over 100 years of experience we are very proud that we are now the only veterinary practice in Paisley and Inverclyde that still provides a personal 24/7 Emergency Service, which is run by our own staff at our own surgery at reasonable cost. So at night our patients are treated by us at our surgery and not sent to the middle of Glasgow.

You can reach our own emergency service 24 hours a day by calling the practice outside the normal opening hours on 0141 887 4111 or 01475 721155.
