A Wisbech veterinary practice is offering pet owners the chance to go behind the scenes and see first-hand how it cares for local pets.

Nene Veterinary Group will host an open day next month to give the community a chance to meet its vets, veterinary nurses and support teams and find out more about the pet healthcare services it offers.

Between 1-5pm on July 10, visitors can join hourly tours of its Old Market premises, which offer a unique insight into the facilities, including the refurbished operating theatre and the practice’s new bereavement room.

Young pet lovers can take part in a colouring competition and a raffle will be held to raise funds for two local rescue centres, Ravenswood Pet Rescue and Little Angels Staffie Rescue. 

Nene Vets is also holding open days at its March surgery on July 9 and Wisbech branch on 10 July.

Amanda Starsmore-Sutton, practice manager at Nene Vets Peterborough, said: “We are very proud of our three branches and how they provide the highest standards of care to local pets.

"We are excited to welcome the local community through our doors so they can see our first-class facilities for themselves.

“Everyone is welcome, including current clients and local pet owners who just want to find out more about us.

She added: "Visitors can join the tours to discover what our surgeries offer and, if their pet should ever need treatment, it’ll give them peace of mind that we can deliver the very best care.”

At each event, representatives of pet healthcare companies will be on hand to chat to pet owners about topics including dentistry, mobility issues and parasite control.

Plus, the first 50 visitors through the door at each practice will receive a goody bag.
