Eastfield Veterinary Clinic in Grimsby has doubled the size of its North Thoresby practice to upgrade facilities and offer improved services.

The clinic boasts a high-tech operating theatre suite that provides the best facilities in veterinary medicine, including:

  • sterile operating theatres
  • an x-ray room
  • a large preparation room
  • a dental theatre with x-ray facilities
  • a scanning room with ultrasound and endoscopy

  • five walk-in kennels
  • two isolation units
  • an extra consulting room
  • laboratory
  • dispensary
  • an extended waiting room with new facilities and disabled access

Positive feedback

Mrs Jeffreson said: “The expansion and new facilities mean we will be able to work in a much more comfortable environment, with more space to do our job.

“Our staff have found it much more spacious and pleasant, and we have had a lot of positive feedback from clients.

“We were keen to separate cats and dogs so cats will be much happier and less stressed as they are not next to barking dogs. We also needed more kennel space and an extra consulting room – especially for evening surgery.”
