MORE THAN 50 guests attended the official launch of Clent Hills Vets’ new pet fitness and rehabilitation centre in Bromsgrove last Thursday.
The evening event began with a Pimm’s and Prosecco reception on the patio at the front of the new Worcester Road premises.
Guests then enjoyed a series of live demonstrations, which included Labrador Lizzy and Goldendoodle Max swimming in the hydro pool with hydrotherapists Harriet Lowe and Debbie Rice.
Border collie Mac and Arnie, a Staffie, demonstrated the heated water treadmill with physiotherapist Laura Cockram, and Spaniels Diesel and Amber with vet Laura Buckey and physiotherapist Emily Ashdown, showcased acupuncture and physio techniques.
The combination of treatments available at the new centre are designed to help improve pets’ mobility, fitness, physique and water confidence, as well as rehabilitation post-surgery, injury or illness.
Rebekka Fiorani, Clent Hills Vets’ practice manager, said: “Everyone has worked incredibly hard towards the launch of our new purpose-built centre.
“The official launch was an incredibly proud moment for us all.
“We are looking forward to working with local pet owners, to help improve the overall wellbeing of their animals.”
Bromsgrove District Council chairman Coun Caroline Spencer, who was a guest at the launch, said: “I was very impressed by how helpful and dedicated the team of staff is.
“The Centre is a lovely, friendly and calming environment for pets and their owners. I am so pleased to see a new business set up in the town to serve local residents.”
