About Us

Our Aims

At Crieff Vets we aim to provide a high quality of veterinary care for animals while supporting owners. We have a small friendly team providing consistency of care and a full 24 hour emergency service by our own vets at our usual location. Our veterinary staff have a high level of clinical skills and knowledge combined with good communication skills. We feel that building good relationships with our clients with a strong bond of mutual trust allows owners to make the best informed decisions for their pet's care.

Our History

Crieff Vets is a member practice of Independent Vetcare. The clinical directors are Kirsty Dewar and Susan Waddell, who have worked together at the practice since 2003.


There has been a veterinary practice on the current site since 1903. This was originally based at Craigforth House and was predominantly a farm animal practice. The purpose built surgery was first opened in 1979 and refurbished and expanded in 1997. This expansion created improved facilities for the increasing number of small animal patients.


Crieff Vets was formerly known as Ashworth Veterinary Group. There had been a member of the Ashworth family at the helm from 1955-2011. Gordon was first in charge and was then followed by his son David who retired in April 2011. Kirsty and Susan joined the practice partnership in 2007 and changed the name to Crieff Vets following David Ashworth's retiral. We joined Independent Vetcare in December 2017.


The practice is a 'mixed practice' dealing with small animals, farm animals and horses.
