A growing veterinary business has expanded into Yorkshire after investing £350,000 into a new vets practice in Doncaster.
Family firm Harrison Family Vets launched two years ago with a practice in Woodley, Reading, and then opened a practice in Kingswinford in the West Midlands, Didsbury in Greater Manchester and Stockton, Teesside. The new practice, which has created six new jobs so far, has an innovative waiting area with bespoke pods, all spaced at least two metres apart, giving clients space to shield pets from the stress of facing other pets in a traditional waiting room.
Clinic director, Ximo Huertas, said: “We have been blown away with the response to our new practice, with over 300 registrations before we even opened our doors. We take an innovative approach to everything we do, and our new cat kennels are a great example of this.
“They have a partition shelf which allows cats to use their litter trays in one area and sleep in another. This design will also allow pets who live together to stay together when they are treated with us. The separate cat and dog wards have also all been designed with mood lighting, pet-friendly aromas, and music to create a calming atmosphere. There are four consulting rooms, a digital X-ray suite that includes dental X-ray facilities, an operating theatre and ultrasonography, so the equipment is first-class.”
Operations director, Kristie Faulkner, from Harrison Family Vets, said: “The cost of veterinary treatments has been in the news a lot recently, but as an independently owned business, our clients can be confident that we will do the right thing by them and price as affordably as possible.
“Our total wellness plan is one of the best value for money offerings on the market, and it provides preventative products and services to keep dogs, cats and rabbits healthy, in addition to unlimited free vet consultations and discounts on neutering, dental treatments and even premium pet food, for a low monthly price.”
Mr Huertas added: “The level of detail that has gone into every aspect of the design of this practice is phenomenal and it means we can offer a superb level of customer service and pet care in an unrivalled setting. In recent years pet ownership in the UK has skyrocketed and many vets in the local area are closed to new clients, so we are really pleased to be helping address the needs of local pet owners here in Doncaster.”
