November 1, 2018

We are delighted to announce our Open Day on Saturday 17th November 2018 from 2pm to 4.30pm. Join us to see behind the scenes at a busy veterinary practice, meet the staff and owners and spend some time looking at our exhibitors and enjoying some refreshments.

On arrival you will be invited to tour the practice as part of a small group, and be given a fascinating insight into the procedures and operations that take place in the prep room and theatre. Diagnostic and  therapeutic equipment, as well as new and old approaches to anaesthesia will be on display and discussed.

After the tour we invite you to join our exhibitors upstairs and enjoy some refreshments. We have a range of fun and informative people joining us for the afternoon. We will be fund raising for The Cinnamon Trust, a wonderful charity helping older people keep their pets, whether in their own home or when going into a residential environment. (www.cinnamon.org.uk) We strongly support the human health aspect of pet ownership, and would ask that you donate on the day, either to enter the raffle or just ask a staff member how you can help. We are also going to be joined by the team from Canine Assisted Learning and some of their superb dogs who work with children in schools, improving behaviour and attention and enhancing the lives of young people throughout the borough. Visit www.canineassistedlearning.com to find out more.

The Ferret Club (www.hbferretclub.co.uk) will be with us again with some of their wonderful ferrets for people to see and handle. This year there’s a twist as they will also be joined by Hopi the skunk, who I am assured is quite delightful and not at all smelly! Our orthopaedic surgeon Nicci Meadows will be on hand to discuss the range of orthopaedic services offered at St Vincents Vets, and will have implants and techniques on display. There will also be a table of small animal ‘patients’ for our younger visitors to try their hand at some bandaging, and Suz Sunshine Face Painting will be offering face painting for young and old alike.

In addition to coffee, teas and snacks, we will be joined by Siren Craft Brewery – offering some free samples of their award winning ales. They will also have some items for sale. If you haven’t already come across Siren Brewery they really are worth looking into. Find out more at www.sirencraftbrew.com

All of us here at St Vincents Veterinary Surgery look forward to seeing you at our practice. Existing and prospective clients, friends, family and well behaved pets all welcome.
