A BROMSGROVE veterinary practice has been shortlisted in the prestigious North Worcestershire Business Awards.
Clent Hills Vets entered the Innovation of the Year category for its Pet Fitness and Rehabilitation Centre, which opened in the town in May 2018.
Now the purpose-built state-of-the art centre, which features a large hydro pool and aqua treadmill, has seen the firm wow the judges and make it through to the last three for the Innovation of the Year title.
The centre complements the traditional services offered at Clent Hills three veterinary surgeries, in Bromsgrove, Hagley and Rubery by offering specialist services to support pet rehabilitation post-surgery, injury or illness.
It also improves mobility, fitness, physique and water confidence, predominantly for dogs and cats.
The winners of the accolades will be announced by journalist and BBC presenter, and Bromsgrove resident, Joanne Malin, at a gala dinner at Hogarths Stone Manor on November 28.
The North Worcestershire Business Awards are organised by North Worcestershire Economic Development and Regeneration (NWedR) – the shared Local Authority service representing Bromsgrove, Redditch and Wyre Forest, and NWBL (North Worcestershire Business Leaders) in partnership with a group of local business leaders.
The judges commented that the finalists reflected ‘an impressive range of businesses, all showcasing products and services that really stood out.
They said they were a credit to North Worcestershire.
Rebekka Fiorani, Clent Hills Vets practice manager, said: “Since launching Clent Hills Vets in 1996 we have recognised that fully healing pets requires not only preventative healthcare and emergency services but also specialist rehabilitation.
“Our vision for offering a comprehensive healthcare service became a reality when we opened our dedicated Pet Fitness and Rehabilitation Centre last year.
“Being shortlisted for this award gives formal recognition for the team of therapists who have worked so hard to establish the centre.”
