Hampshire-based veterinary specialists Anderson Moores marked 10 years in business with a black tie gala dinner at Southampton FC’s St Mary’s Stadium.
Set up by small animal surgery specialist Davina Anderson and chief executive Richard Hoile in 2006, Anderson Moores has grown from five employees to become one of the UK’s largest veterinary referral centres for cats and dogs.
Quality and dedication
The practice now has 130 veterinary specialists, nurses and administrative staff.
Dr Anderson said: “When we first set up Anderson Moores we never imagined we would grow as fast as we have, and that is a testament to the quality and dedication of the people who have worked so hard.
“It is really gratifying so many of those people are still with us – we want to thank everyone who joined us at our anniversary celebration and helped make it such a wonderful occasion. Here’s to another successful 10 years for the practice.”
Mr Hoile added: “It’s been a tremendous journey. Every year has seen great change, and earlier this year the Pets At Home group took a majority stake in the company – this will enable us continue to develop, and provide the best specialist care for dogs and cats from across the south of England.”
The practice, located near Winchester in Hampshire, now operates from two sites following the launch of the region’s first feline hyperthyroid clinic in September.
