A SHAW veterinary practice has welcomed the first patients to its new modern practice.
Crown House Vets are “excited and pleased” to have opened its doors at Shaw Vets on Market Street.
People attending with their animals will find a fully-functioning practice with longer opening hours, a full complement of staff and an operating theatre.
Senior vet, Lyndsey Pass (BVM&S MRCVS) said: “It’s been a long time coming. But the new facilities and opening hours will be a real boon for clients.”
Previously, any treatments that needed surgery would have had to take place at the Rochdale branch, meaning an extra journey for clients.
The new opening hours will ensure clients have more choice for appointment times.
There are also plans-when COVID-19 allows-to offer an open day for clients to come and have a look round.
Lyndsey added: “We are so excited and pleased to be opening up the new veterinary surgery at Shaw.
“Our small, friendly team will continue to work hard to give the pets of Shaw (and the surrounding areas) a great service.
“The improved facilities will mean we can do much more on site, be available longer and so give even better, more comprehensive care to the animals that we treat.”
The team now has a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/shawvets which they can use to engage with their clients, make announcements about events, competitions and special offers.
Shaw Vets is open 9am until 6pm but closed for lunch between 12.30pm and 2pm.
