    An Essex veterinary surgeon and veterinary nurse have opened the doors to Vets4Pets’ 450th practice.

    The Mayor of Loughton, Councillor Philip Abraham, officially opened the Vets4Pets Loughton veterinary surgery inside Pets at Home at the Epping Forest Shopping Park, before enjoying a guided tour of the bright and modern facility.

    Cheryl Lucas, who stars in the BBC’s children’s TV show The Pet Factor, is one of two joint venture partners to the practice, along with veterinary nurse Nick Briggs.

    She said: “It’s fantastic to be able to open the doors to Vets4Pets Loughton and reach a landmark number of practices for the group.

    “The opening event gave us chance to meet new clients, and welcome them to the practice.”

    Cheryl, who qualified in 2009, is also a joint venture partner at Vets4Pets Chadwell (with Nick) and Newbury Park in Ilford, while Nick, who qualified in 2008, is also joint venture partner at Romford, Beckton and Dagenham.

    He said: “I have always been interested in caring for pets and have several dogs and cats at home.

    “I love being a veterinary nurse and I’m delighted to have another opportunity from Vets4Pets to open my fifth practice.

    “Once again the process to open a practice has been easy and we’ve had brilliant support on all aspects from Vets4Pets.

    “I’m now looking forward to welcoming pets and their owners to Vets4Pets Loughton and providing the highest standard of veterinary care to the area’s pets.”

    The brand new high-tech practice will have three consult rooms, an operating theatre, in-house laboratory, digital X-ray and separate cat and dog kennels; although there will be room for expansion in the future.

    The new practice will create five new jobs, with two vets, veterinary nurse, two pet care assistants and a receptionist.

    Chief executive of the Pets at Home Vet Group, Andrei Balta, welcomed another landmark for the group.

    He said: “Cheryl and Nick are two great advocates for the veterinary profession and we’re delighted they are part of the group.

    “Wherever we have opened, pet owners have responded enthusiastically to our state-of-the-art practices and convenient opening hours.

    “The joint venture model we operate across our practices provides the support vets and vet nurses need to run their businesses.

    “It allows them to focus on what they really love, looking after the health of animals, while the support team helps with other areas including marketing, HR and business strategy.”

    The Pets at Home Vet Group, under the Vets4pets brand, operates vet practices on a joint venture basis in partnership with 375 vets and 46 veterinary nurses, who run the practices.

    To mark the opening, the surgery is running three opening offers for the next three months - £15 vaccinations, £15 Vet consultations as well as a fabulous Best Start in Life packaged health plan for £49 which incorporates a variety of elements including first vaccinations, starter flea and worm treatment, and a bag of vet recommended food – perfect for puppies and kittens.

      Rupert, a rescued Dalmatian needed specialist surgery but wasn’t keen on being examined so Mike Farrell, Orthopaedic Specialist at Davies, went the extra mile to make him feel at ease.

      SCVS recently celebrated their 10-year anniversary in style, with a party for all of their staff at Key West on the end of Bournemouth pier.

      The celebrations began by watching the sunset – champagne and canapés in hand – before everyone sat down to a three-course dinner, followed by a live band and plenty of dancing.

      Whilst this was a special occasion for everyone at SCVS, some of their long-standing team members also celebrated their 10-year work anniversary!...
