Kennels and Catteries. Some take in strays so if you are looking for a rescue animal give them a call.

Colinton Country Cattery

164 Woodhall Rd, Juniper Green, Edinburgh EH13 0PJ, UK – 0131 441 9099

We have used them for years now would never think of going anywhere else. The girls are so friendly and welcoming they take time to listen to you if your cat has any meds to take or dislikes. Everytime we have taken smir the girls are busy cleaning which we find very comforting. There has never ever been any smell that you might associate with so many cats at once so we are easier leaving her with them knowing she is getting all the care that she needs even though she has a problem with female's but they give her her treats nd she forgives them.

Best cattery my cats have stayed in. Pen 1 is huge and the girls do an excellent job. See you in December! Kirsty and Gavin

Thistle Vets

1 Alcorn Rigg, Clovenstone Dr, Edinburgh EH14 3BF, UK – 0131 453 6699

First time we've used them. Arrived early with 2 new kittens and we're seen almost immediately, staff seemed very friendly and the vet was very knowledgeable. Will definitely use them again.

Excellent veterinary practice. The staff is friendly, professional and always kind and helpful. They now also have a dental vet on staff. Been with them for five years and can recommend their services.

Vets Now Edinburgh

2B Hutchison Crossway, Edinburgh EH14 1RR, UK – 0131 516 3985

Professional, courteous, and among the best in the business. It's a shame that some people will complain about pricing (animal owners should have insurance) as these vets are underappreciated, incredibly qualified to manage emergency critical medicine and surgery, and are working into the dead of the night to provide that life-saving care. Our visit here left me with an impression of a staff that deserves to be recognised for excellency.

Great team. From the girl who spoke to me on the phone to book the appointment, to the vet (Dr. Richard) who treated my dog with respect and efficiency at 11pm, making us feel a bit more calm about the fact that our dog's snout was becoming really quite similar to the Michelin man's face. Definitely recommend this place. Our dog's condition was truly well managed.

This has got much more humane. The Pet Travel Scheme allows pet animals from certain countries to enter the UK without quarantine, as long as they meet certain conditions. The Scheme also means that people in the UK can, having taken their pets to these countries, bring them back without the need for quarantine
