Vets open practice door to the public

Ian Hughes 5th Nov, 2019 Updated: 5th Nov, 2019

IF you have ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of a vet practice, now is your chance to find out.

Avonvale Veterinary Centres is holding an open day at its Heathcote Road branch in Leamington on Saturday November 9, giving visitors a unique insight into the work which is carried out to take care of people’s pets.

As well as tours of the branch there will also be a tombola and cake stall, and Avonvale’s chosen charity for the year, Cats Protection, will have a stand at the event to promote the amazing work it does.

The event will also offer a chance for people to ask questions of Avonvale’s team, including young people who may be interested in getting into veterinary care as a career.

Clinical director Gemma Lawton said: “It promises to be a great event, with people being given a unique insight into how a busy vets practice operates.

“We are delighted that Cats Protection are bringing a stand to the event so visitors can find out more about this wonderful charity, which helps approximately 200,000 cats and kittens in need every year.

“Our team will be on hand to answer people’s pet care questions, and we’d also love to give advice to anyone who is considering a future veterinary career.

The event runs from 1pm to 3pm.
