Thrums Vets Celebrate 75 Years in Practice

17 Aug 2023

XLVets Members Thrums Vets are extremely proud to be celebrating their 75th Year as an independent veterinary practice.

Thrums Vets has now grown to be Scotland's largest independent practice with 27 vets covering Farm, Equine and Small Animal clinical work.

Thrums Vets opened its doors in 1948 as a large animal practice, set up by Jim Baillie, a respected vet from Brechin to support local farmers.

Director Graeme Richardson, who has been a vet with Thrums for 32 years, said: “Over the last 75 years the veterinary industry has changed in many ways, but what has always remained vitally important is that personal relationship we have with our clients, their farm animals, horses, ponies and pets.

“The advancement in technology has been huge, who would have thought even just three years ago that we would be able to bring keyhole surgery to pets! Just like when Jim started out, we provide out of hours emergency care service and have two vets on call. We are always here for our clients day and night, and Jim’s ethos of dedication and professional care is still the cornerstone of our practice 75 years on. We look forward to continuing to be trusted partners in our communities for many more years to come.”

They have had some excellent Press coverage as part of their celebrations, find out more in the link below:
