The transformation will cost £750,000 and is being funded by VetPartners, the UK veterinary group
Work is under way again to turn a vacant shopping unit into a state-of-the-art veterinary practice after a delay caused by the coronavirus shutdown.
Building work to convert Kirk Sandall shopping mall in Doncaster into modern premises for Arundell Vets had to be put on hold in March. The new practice, which had been due to open in June, is now expected to open in October.
The new facility will have the latest in high-tech equipment, including a digital imaging suite with ultrasound and x-ray, dental room and two operating theatres.
The transformation of the empty building will cost £750,000 and is being funded by VetPartners, the UK veterinary group that Arundell Vets is now part of.
Staff hope the new practice will achieve hospital status from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons because of its enhanced facilities and standard of care.
Clinical director Steve Arundell said: “We’re happy that the work is back on track after the unfortunate delay due to the pandemic. We’re looking forward to moving as the new practice will be a massive improvement.”
