An animal hospital in West Buckland plans to create up to 14 jobs after investing £500,000 in a major refurbishment of the practice.
Cave Veterinary Specialists has created three new consultation rooms, a new reception area and remodeled a car park to support increasing demand for its services. The practice said it is planning to increase its workforce by 15 per cent.
Cave’s hospital director Claire Lawrence said: “This first £500,000 investment in the practice is to improve facilities to an even higher level.
“We’ve created a brand-new reception area which has been remodeled and enlarged to make it a far more comfortable and welcoming space.
“We’ve also added three new consultation rooms, making it seven in total, to help us deal with the increased demand from our referring vets and pet patients.
“Another very important improvement is the provision of a brand new and expanded car park, the importance of which we realized during lockdown, when we had to meet and greet our clients outside.”
Further investment in equipment and people is planned for 2022, in response to a significant increase in demand for the practice’s services since the start of the pandemic.
“Cave’s top priority is always to provide outstanding specialist care for sick or injured pets and that’s why we will continually invest in our team of highly experienced veterinary clinicians and state-of-the-art equipment and technology,” added Claire.
