At Braid Vets, we are committed to keeping abreast of the latest developments in modern veterinary practice – providing high-quality treatment at sensible prices.

To enable pet owners to spread the cost of routine treatment, we have designed our own practice membership scheme – the Braid Vets Health Plan.

Braid Vets Health Plan Offers:

  • Essential annual vaccinations, including Kennel Cough for all dogs
  • Two full veterinary examinations per year
  • Flea and worm protection – all year round, with Prescription Only Medicines
  • Convenient monthly payments by Direct Debit
  • 10% Discount off all other fees*,
  • 10% Discount off all out-of-hours emergency fees*, at our own e-vets Emergency Service, Edinburgh’s only accredited private Veterinary Hospital
  • 10% Discount off Prescribed Medicines
  • 10% Discount off all Petfoods

How Do I Register?

Please call in to the practice to complete a simple registration form, which will require your bank details. Practice staff will be happy to answer any queries you may have.

We ask that you pay your first month’s premium at the time of registration – and then you can start to receive benefits and discounts straight away! For instance – sign up at the time of vaccinations, pay your first instalment and receive 50% discount off all vaccinations! Or sign up at the time for neutering your pet and receive 10% discount!

It is also possible to register by telephone, by calling 0800 169 9958There is no extra registration fee.

Prevention is better than cure!

Braid Vets Health Plan brings pet owners peace of mind by providing their pet’s preventative healthcare needs.

Twice yearly visits mean that we have the opportunity to administer necessary vaccinations and dispense accurate and up to date worming and flea treatments. In addition, an overall clinical examination gives us the opportunity to carefully monitor the general health of your pet and offer advice, support and treatment planning, which in many cases may prevent problems arising in the future.

Furthermore, the cost of the preventative healthcare is spread throughout the year by making monthly Direct Debit payments – it couldn’t be simpler!

Whilst spreading the cost of preventative treatments, all members then qualify for additional discounts on other items in the practice. Also, should a pet need an expensive operation or treatment costing over £500, payment can be spread over a period of months (conditions apply).

Is it a type of Pet Insurance?

It’s not Pet Insurance. Pet Insurance is designed to cover all non-routine treatments, such as emergency surgery. The Braid Vets Health Plan is designed to cover all of the preventative healthcare and treatment that your pet needs throughout the year.
