A former pet shop that had been lying empty for years has had a £100,000 makeover to open as a veterinary surgery.
VetSavers has opened its 19th branch in Cranham near Upminster, Essex, after an extensive revamp of the premises to create a modern surgery.
Features and services
The site boasts:
- a laboratory
- a theatre
- vet and nurse consulting rooms
- a staff room
- a spacious reception and waiting room
It will carry out:
- dental procedures
- general health care
Gap in market
VetSavers is part of the Best Friends Group, which bought the building. Both veterinary chains are now owned by VetPartners.
Best Friends Group area manager Kelly Smyth said: “We felt there was a gap in the market for affordable veterinary care in that area, and we have been proved right as there is huge demand.
“Within the space of just a few weeks, we have more than 100 clients because people need an affordable, quality veterinary service for their pets, offering the best possible treatment and care.”
Vet Melina Mihaylova and VN Katherine Durban will run the branch after previously working at another of the company’s surgeries.
