Improved facilities for treating poorly pets are a step closer for a Kettering veterinary practice thanks to progress on a £1.3m hospital project.
External works on the new home for Northlands Veterinary Hospital are now complete and the internal fit-out is due to begin.
The three-storey centre will offer four theatres – two general, one orthopeadic and one dental – three separate wards for cats, dogs and exotics, a diagnostic lab, a large waiting room with dedicated areas for cats and dogs, four consulting rooms (one just for cats), a bereavement room, dispensary, laser therapy treatment room, office, night-team accommodation and outside exercise yard.
There will be independent rooms for the practice’s ultrasound machine, digital x-ray and £150,000 CT scanner.
It will be major upgrade for Northlands and its local sister practice The Avenue Veterinary Clinic, part of the VetPartners veterinary group.
