There has been so much going on at the surgery in the last few weeks. As well as our main role in helping you keep your pets as healthy and happy as possible, we have been involved in several ways in the wider community.
We were delighted to be the initiators and sponsors of the first “Big Weymouth Walkies” along with wessex fm. The idea started several months ago when we thought it would be great to celebrate the wonderful dog walking we have in the area with a mass dog walk along Weymouth beach on the last Sunday dogs are allowed on the full length of the sands. What a response! We were thrilled when hundreds of you and your furry best friends turned up to help us celebrate. Click here to read all about it and see all the fabulous photos in our news item.
As part of our community involvement, Dave has made several visits to local schools recently. Alongside other local businesses, he has been talking to students about careers in and around the veterinary profession – not just as vets and vet nurses but also in the customer care, admin and business side. Veterinary surgeries could not run without these vital non-clinical roles.
Following the popularity of our surgery tours, we are planning to organise some more tours of our great new Weymouth surgery. If you want a sneak preview, why not take a virtual tour of our Link Park surgery. Click here for a behind the scenes look at what we have to offer.
Wednesday Morning closures – from now on we are closing every Wednesday from 9am to 10am for staff training. Please have a look at the news item to see how this may affect you and your pet. We will of course still be available for emergencies.
We have been working very hard on improving the veterinary experience for our cat patients and it is now official – we are a Gold Standard Cat Friendly practice! You can see just how this affects you and your cat by reading all about it in our news item.
