THE Mount Veterinary Hospital which moves from Wellington High Street to a brand new purpose-built hospital on the A38 at Cades Farm on 22 March is inviting members of the pet health club to view the premises on Saturday, March 10, from 10am until 4 pm. A second open day for members of the public is scheduled for Saturday, March 17 from 10am until 4 pm.
One of the practice vets, Ms Charlotte Freeman, said, “All clients are welcome, prospective clients are welcome. Even if people don’t have a pet but are interested in seeing our facilities are more than welcome to come and have look around.”
Charlotte Freeman, vet, said: “Every aspect of our new hospital has been designed and built to deliver what we believe is the best possible veterinary care for pets. The newly equipped, bright and modern building includes the latest available treatment facilities allowing animals and their owners to visit in a calm and professional atmosphere.
“Mount Vets has a knowledgeable and experienced veterinary team supported by qualified veterinary nurses who are on site 24 hours a day. Each vet at Mount Vets has a particular area of interest and we have expertise in veterinary ophthalmology, small animal surgery, small animal medicine and veterinary dentistry.
“We have increased the number of consultation rooms from 3 rooms to 4 and now have a more spacious waiting room and reception allowing cats and dogs to sit in separate waiting areas. Cats prefer not to see large, panting dogs when waiting for their appointment.
“We have tripled the number of cat and dog kennels and increased our number of large walk-in kennels allowing more space for hospitalised patients.”
Mount Vets has been established in Wellington for over 60 years. It now employs 45 staff and includes farm, equine and poultry departments. The new practice will have separate entrances for farm and small animals. The premises in Lancer Court which includes a consultation room and a retail area will be retained.
