ChesterGates Veterinary Specialists was given the star treatment when TV presenter Louise Minchin and her golden Labrador retriever officially opened its advanced diagnostic imaging suite.
The BBC Breakfast presenter and her dog Waffle were joined by ChesterGates’ Pet of the Year Belle, and both pets were immortalised as they planted their paws in ChesterGates’ Hollywood-style “hall of fame”.
£1 million investment
Other guests at the event included veterinary practitioners from around the region who refer pet clients to the hospital and were able to view first-hand the results of the £1 million investment in MRI and CT scanners, along with:
- new consulting rooms
- a remodelled reception area
- updated physiotherapy and hydrotherapy facilities
Referrals director John Innes said: “The extensive remodelling places ChesterGates’ at the leading edge of veterinary treatment, with some of most skilled veterinary specialists and the latest state-of-the-art equipment and facilities.”
The final phase – which includes three fully equipped operating theatres, radioactive iodine therapy for cats, an endoscopy suite and an ultrasound room – will be completed later this year.
