About Our Practice

Why choose our veterinary practice?

When William and Eileen Sinclair started at Ivybank Veterinary Clinic in 1986 there was work for one vet, one un-qualified nursing assistant, a part-time receptionist and a cleaner.

Over the years they have grown the practice, acquired an additional partner, Rosie Sorrie, and in 2012 merged with Village Vets, expanding our services across Ayrshire as Ivybank Vets. We now have 9 vets, 5 vet nurses, 8 receptionists and 2 animal nursing assistants providing care for your pets across our four clinics - located in West Kilbride, Irvine, Kilwinning and Kilmarnock.
