New Pet Health Plan
There are always changes occurring at our practice, often behind the scenes but some recent ones will start to become obvious to pets and pet owners as they walk through the door.
Firstly, I would like to welcome our new full-time vet, Leanne Thompson, who joined us in late October after moving from a first opinion and referral practice in Cornwall. She qualified from Edinburgh University in 2009 and has a Small Animal Surgery Certificate. She has not only slotted seamlessly into our team but adds to our increasingly qualified vets and nurses. We now have three vets with further qualifications which include Peter (Dermatology) and Kate (Emergency Medicine and Surgery). I am sure many of you will meet her soon and make her feel at home!
We have a fairly large renovation planned for our Sherborne surgery next year. This will include the exterior of the building and also the interior, with a complete refurbishment of the reception and consult rooms and numerous improvements behind the scenes too. We hope to send the plans out to tender in the next month and look forward to keeping you updated as things progress.
Our final bit of news is that we are launching our own Pet Health Plan in December. This will be available for Dogs and Cats and will include your pets preventative medications; vaccinations, flea, tick and worm control (including Lungworm for dogs) and all of your consultations, for a monthly set fee, via direct debit. You will also have the option to have your flea and worm treatment delivered quarterly, directly to your home.
The exciting difference between our Plan and many others, is we are including unlimited consultations with a vet or nurse for this set monthly fee. This hopefully will provide a huge amount of reassurance to pet owners and fit in alongside your own Pet Insurance Polices. Please speak to a member of staff if you are interested in more information and prices.
As you can see, life in the veterinary practice does not stay still for very long but we hope you both appreciate and enjoy these changes over the coming year and on that note we would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
