Ardene House Vet Practice Ltd cares for all your animals within a friendly, compassionate and professional environment, 24/7. Our main practice is situated in the beautiful outskirts of Kingswells, Aberdeen, providing small animal and equine veterinary care and is the base for our farm vets. We also have a branch surgery at Bridge of Don providing companion animal care to the local community.

Each department has its own team of vets, nurses and support staff. We believe in treating every patient as if they were our own animal, and giving them the same loving attention and care. We are a group of highly trained, experienced animal lovers who are devoted to giving our patients the best care possible.

Our veterinary team also work closely with visiting specialists who travel to Ardene House on a regular basis.


Friendly staff who are always good at answering questions or queries. The vet building itself is well laid out and works well and my dogs never feel stressed or anxious about visiting. Also having the 24hr service there too has been useful in the past when it’s been required out of hours. The vet has always provided great service and it’s the reason we have used them for 13 years.

Have every faith in this Vet Practice! I’ve met a lot of the staff since my 8 1/2 year old bunny has suffered a lot of ill health throughout her life due to unfortunately not having been blessed with good dentition.

Everyone has always been amazing and bought me so many happy years against the odds with my furry friend.

I hope to have her around for a good while yet but in the meantime Ardene are ensuring she’s a live wire, happy as Larry and living life to the full

Our Vincent got 14 teeth out yesterday at Ardene House Kingswells due to an extremely sore mouth caused by stomatitis.  He was looked after so well and the vet phoned and kept me posted about Vincent.  I can’t thank them enough.  He is much better today than I thought he’d be, he’s bright and was even eating again!

They also share a deep love of animals and laugh and cry with us pet owners all the way; real compassion and that never goes unnoticed.  Thanks girls 😊❤️🐾

“Craig checked out my Labrador diagnosed elsewhere with an enlarged heart.

What a wonderful guy, even before the appointment they sent out a really reassuring letter which put me at ease. I was really impressed with the quality of images obtained during the assessment.

Luckily my dog was diagnosed to be healthy so we ended up chatting about rugby but I was seriously impressed with every stage of treatment from both Craig and Ardene.

"The receptionists all know me and my catty Sweetiepie, and they know how emotional I am with all my catty has, and is, going through.  They are all amazing, and supportive, and I can’t fault the vets, especially Ann, and Juliane … they all calm me down, when I think that things are seriously wrong with my fur ball, and so far, have not been as bad as my mind allows me to think . Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, and catty also says, thank you for looking after me”

I just wanted to say thank you for holding the Puppy Care Night!  I’ve never had a dog before so I found it full of really useful and interesting info, and it has given me a bit more confidence to go and find the right puppy for our family.  Seeing things from a Nurse, Vet and Trainer perspective was fascinating and it’s great to know there is so much advice and support out there.  Thanks too for the goodie bag and the tour around your amazing facilities
Much appreciated.

I’ve always found Ardene house very welcoming and friendly. Staff are courteous and understanding, especially when families need their support at the end of their pets ‘life. We came back because of our excellent experience with the Vets and the added bonus of good opening hours and the fact it’s also a hospital. An excellent practice all round

Just wanted to say thank you to everyone involved in caring for Beck over his 19 years. During his last few months he wasn’t in the best of health and we made the very difficult decision to end his life on the 5th December. It was one of the saddest days for us. We received a lovely card from you all at Ardene which was lovely, and today i collected Beck’s ashes, presented beautifuly. He will be buried in one of his favourite spots in his garden. Thanks again for everythingLorna Sinclair

The staff are brilliant. They fully appreciate that your pet seeing you, even for 5 minutes when they’re meant to be closing, will aid their recovery. Knowing that my dog is being cared for, not just looked after, is so reassuring at a time of enormous worry. Thank you guys so much for the care and compassion shown not just to Benji but to us, his family

The best vets ever, so helpful and understanding, listen to what you have to say.
We had to have our fur baby put to sleep, it broke our hearts but, they were there for us, got her ashes in a lovely box, they dealt with it all.
We got another cat but, was to hyper, then another one who was vicious, finally we have another beautiful baby who is poorly, a lot of things came to light about her back ground and the vets were there for us.  Nothing is too much trouble.  Thank you all for being there when we need someone. x

Mopsy and I would like to express a massive thank you to all the staff at Ardene House who have helped us, especially Alison Cheshire who performed Mops' ops and is in charge of her medical care.  Clearly a very skilled veterinarian but also a really lovely girl too.  Can't recommend her and this practice highly enough!

Unfortunately had to have my cat O’Maly put down last week. If it wasn’t for the help of Nicky and Shirley it would of been an even more difficult time than it already was. Thank you to all of the Bridge of Don staff over the many years. You’ve been brilliant X

"Thank you very much for all of the kindness and compassion shown by the team at Kingswells when dealing with the heart breaking time of saying goodbye to Sox.  Allowing us all the time we needed to say goodbye, not having to worry about any arrangements or payment at that difficult time, is truly appreciated.  The condolence card was a lovely thought.  Excellent care and compassion, above and beyond anything expected."

I have been taking my animals to Ardene House Veterinary Practise for years; I simply cannot sing their praises highly enough. All the staff are welcoming, kind, friendly and professional from the minute you set foot in the door. The reception staff, nurses and vets are collectively a wonderful caring team who consistently provide excellent care.

Very special thanks to Mark who has been particularly attentive over recent times with my dog, Dileas
