Scarsdale Vets has announced the opening of its newest First Opinion veterinary practice in Langley Mill, Derbyshire..
The new Langley Mill site will feature facilities designed to diagnose and treat the most common cases on-site with the support of the group’s referral hospital, Pride Veterinary Centre.
Veterinary surgeon Yvette Rowntree, (who has worked in the area for over 10 years) and vet nurse Alex Butler, will be running this practice along with veterinary surgeon Belen Moreno Lopez and client care advisors Joanne Bamford, Sally Cresswell and Michelle Wright.
Rowntree, said: “I’m looking forward to being part of a close knit team that becomes part of the local community. To me it’s really important that the pets we treat (and their owners) are as comfortable as possible when they see us, which we hope will happen naturally as they will get to see the same friendly faces each time they visit, as well as our excellent facilities.
“We are also delighted that we will be able to provide consultations for the increasing number of less traditional pets, such as lizards and parrots, that we are seeing in our other practices. Scarsdale is keeping up with the growing number of exotic pets to ensure that pets of all species get the best possible level of care at any of our practices.”
She added: “As an RCVS Certificate Holder and Advanced Practitioner in Zoological Medicine, I am joining a team of three other vets within the Scarsdale group with additional expertise with non-traditional pets, so it’s great to also be part of a growing exotics team, as well as the small team in Langley Mill.”
The Langley Mill practice will feature two consultation rooms; one operating theatre (where staff will be able to perform a range of day-case surgeries, from neutering to wound management); an on-site laboratory (where staff can analyse blood tests, among other investigations); diagnostic machines such as x-ray and ultrasounds and a retail area.
