A NEW veterinary practice has opened in Witchford on the site of a former restaurant.
Johnson and Scott Vets opened its doors for the first time on Monday in a building formerly known to residents as Needhams Restaurant.
The premises, in Main Street, have been transformed by business partners Joanne Johnson and Cathy Scott, who between them have more than 35 years of experience as vets.
Tables and chairs have made way for two consultation rooms, digital x-ray equipment, a waiting area and a host of modern veterinary facilities.
Diners will be replaced by pets feathered, furred and scaled - with the practice set up to deal with unusual animals, as well as more regular companions.
Joanne said: “Cathy and I have worked locally for many years, but wanted to join forces here to create a personal friendly practice where you can see your own vet every time you come to ensure continuity of care.”
The practice will open with extended consulting hours from 8am on Tuesdays and Thursdays, evening appointments until 6.50pm Mondays and Thursdays, and Saturday morning appointments every weekend. A full 24 hour emergency service will also be available.
Cathy added: “We so excited about the new practice and looking forward to offering a warm welcome to our clients and their pets, providing them with common sense traditional veterinary care, together with all the advantages offered by a fully equipped modern surgery.”
