Took my 2 dogs when I had to go away for work. They looked after them so well and the employees are so kind and helpful

We board our dogs here and both are always happy to see the staff. We always get a warm welcome from Sadie as well. Always clean and water on tap for the dogs with pens outside and a large grassy area to give them a run.

Vets

Gordon Vets (Musselburgh)

111 Market St, Musselburgh EH21 6PZ, UK – 0131 665 2124

This is the best vets I have ever been to. So easy to make an appointment, as well as plenty of drop in clinics. Kind but professional staff, who bend over backwards to help. They deal with insurance claims on your behalf, for no charge. We have been with them for a while, through long illness and also euthanasia, and cannot fault their treatment or sensitivity.

Best vets about by far. Great friendly staff who actually care. Highly recommended.

Take good care of my pets. Really a good place also handy for getting fresh food for them. My snake loves the rats from there my cats and dog love the treatment they received there and they all love the treats and food from there. Staff is always been super nice and friendly. I never go without my dog into the shop. (he'd be cross if I ever did)

Love going here to pick up treats and food for our Guinea Pigs (all 12 of them). Incredible helpful staff with loads of knowledge of all the animals in store, although i would urge anyone to have a look at the adoption section before buying cos those little guys need homes too, we are adoption veterans having adopted 8 of our piggies from this store already, all of which are happy and squeaky and loving life.
