Have you been missing seeing us on a Monday? Well the good news for you is that there will be no more Monday Blues! Veronica, one of our lovely Vets, will be coming in on Mondays from 7th January 2019 and will be available to see your pet for laser and hydrotherapy appointments.
Hopefully this should help a little with scheduling for those with busy diaries. Katharine will be manning the phone in case you need to rearrange an appointment or order some pet food for your dog or cat too.
