Here’s an update about the refurbishments at the Holderness Road practice

Jim Morris in the isolation wardPet owners in the Hull area will soon be able to make the most of an upgrade and refurbishment at Haven Veterinary Group’s Holderness Road practice following extensive work at the surgery.

The vet group has kept its Hull branch open during the five-month refurbishment project which has seen the group invest in a six-figure sum for the works.

Haven Veterinary Group owner and Principal Vet Jim Morris said: “This is one of the most significant upgrades for the surgical and hospital areas that I’ve seen since I joined the practice 25 years ago.

“The practice was originally formed from two private dwellings on the site and we have always strived to improve our services with frequent upgrades.

“By doing so, we’re able to continue to provide excellent levels of care for the animals we see to.”

One of the most eagerly awaited changes to the surgery is addition of new dedicated cat and reptile wards.

“This means our furry and scaly visitors will be able to stay somewhere they feel safe, and out of the gaze of large dogs which makes a huge difference to them,” adds Mr Morris.

There is also a new purpose-built isolation facility, a dedicated training room and walk-in kennels for large dogs. Lights and tables for the operating theatres have also been upgraded alongside the laboratory equipment, enabling the practice to provide more in-house tests with quicker results.

The updates follow the refurbishment of the dirty operations and radiology areas at the clinic last year.

The works are being undertaken for the practice by Hull-based building company MK Services.
