As at our other practices, the new Langley Mill site boasts a range of fantastic facilities designed to diagnose and treat the most common cases on-site with the support of the our referral hospital, Pride Veterinary Centre, nearby if needed. Being able to offer consultations, nurse clinics and outpatient surgeries in one place is an added convenience for pet owners.
Veterinary Surgeon Yvette Rowntree, (who has worked in the area for over 10 years) and Vet Nurse Alex Butler, will be running this practice along with Veterinary Surgeon Belen Moreno Lopez and Client Care Advisors Joanne Bamford, Sally Cresswell and Michelle Wright. Yvette and Alex will be able to perform a number of treatments for local pets, including consultations, vaccinations, flea and worming treatments, clinics for weight management and diabetes, as well as a number of outpatient surgeries – all on-site. They will also be able to care for exotic pets, such as lizards, small mammals, parrots and chickens.
Yvette Rowntree, says: “I’m looking forward to being part of a close knit team that becomes part of the local community. To me it’s really important that the pets we treat (and their owners!) are as comfortable as possible when they see us, which we hope will happen naturally as they will get to see the same friendly faces each time they visit, as well as our excellent facilities”.
“We are also delighted that we will be able to provide consultations for the increasing number of less traditional pets, such as lizards and parrots, that we are seeing in our other practices. Scarsdale is keeping up with the growing number of exotic pets to ensure that pets of all species get the best possible level of care at any of our practices. As an RCVS Certificate Holder and Advanced Practitioner in Zoological Medicine, I am joining a team of three other vets within the Scarsdale group with additional expertise with non-traditional pets, so it’s great to also be part of a growing exotics team, as well as the small team in Langley Mill.”
To celebrate its opening, the team will host an Open Day on Saturday 30th March from 10 am – 2 pm, giving local residents, current and future clients the opportunity to meet the staff and have the chance to look around the new premises. There will also be stalls and games, tea, coffee and cakes, as well as the chance to take part in a prize draw and a wildlife workshop run by an exotics expert.
The Langley Mill practice will be able to offer clients outstanding veterinary care and an increased range of veterinary services on a single site. It has two consultation rooms; one operating theatre (where staff will be able to perform a range of day-case surgeries, from neutering to wound management); an on-site laboratory (where staff can analyse blood tests, among other investigations); diagnostic machines such as x-ray and ultrasounds and a retail area full of tasty treats and key items for pets of all shapes and sizes. Being part of the Scarsdale group, pets at Langley Mill will have access to the 24/7 out-of-hours service at Pride Veterinary Centre (on Pride Park), which has a multidisciplinary team of specialists and a dedicated Vets at Night team on site.
