An open day was held at Oakham Veterinary Hospital on Saturday for the official opening of the small animal hospital extension.

The new facilities include a separate cat waiting area, much larger cattery and kennels for inpatients, two new consult rooms, a new double operating theatre and dedicated scanning and recovery areas.

The surgery has also recently been accredited with cat friendly clinic gold level status - the only practice in the area to hold this accolade.

Catriona Laird and Chris Booth, clinical directors, cut the ribbon, as Adrian Palmer from Palmers of Oakham handed over the new facilities.

More than 200 people enjoyed the self-guided tours of the practice, watching the ultrasound, laparoscopy and acupuncture demos from the vets. They also listened to First Aid talks and had a go on the lambing machine or watched dog agility.

The Pet’s Corner was a big hit with younger visitors as were all the competitions and raffles, which raised a grand total of £437.44 for Canine Partners, which attended with an information stall and some of their dogs in training.

Catriona said: “We are thrilled at how many people came to see us, both regular clients and new faces. It is always lovely to have a chat with people on an informal basis.”
