White Cross Vets has opened a practice in the Upton Rocks area of Widnes.
The family-run group, which already operates three practices in the north-west and now has 15 across the country, spent £300,000 on the facility.
Opened on 15 August, the practice will be run by vets Archie Cummings and Louise Farrington and VNs Chloe Isherwood and Helen Murray.
Mr Cummings said: “Our practice is located in an easily accessible new development close to Widnes town centre.
“It’s the fourth practice to open in the north-west, as we already have two practices in Liverpool and one in St Helens, and we are looking forward to caring for all the much loved family pets here in Widnes.
“Our new practice is a state-of-the-art, fully equipped veterinary surgery where we will be able to perform a wide range of procedures from routine vaccinations and neutering, through to emergency operations and orthopaedic work.
“We will be the first veterinary practice in Widnes to use a revolutionary North American concept that reduces stress for pets by playing scientifically composed relaxing music into the separate dog and cat wards.”
Tim Harrison, managing director of White Cross Vets, said: “The opening of our 15th practice is a significant milestone for our business and we have plans to open another later this year in Wolverhampton.”
The Widnes practice will be vaccinating all cats, dogs and rabbits for just £10 to celebrate its opening.
