Holderness Road Branch – Refurbishment & Upgrade Latest News!

If you’ve been attending our Holderness Road surgery over the last 3 months, you will have noticed that we have got the builders in.  We are busy refurbishing and upgrading our surgical and hospital areas.

As well as making sure that the area looks shiny and new, we have rebuilt our isolation facility and laboratory.

The laboratory equipment we use will also be upgraded so we can provide more in-house tests with quicker results.  The area we find most exciting however, is that we are creating dedicated cat and reptile wards.

These will allow our furry and scaly friends somewhere that they can feel safer away from the gaze of large dogs.

The builders have been working hard and we hope the refurbished area to be up and running by the end of February and we are planning an ‘Open Day’ for the Spring or Early Summer.  Attached are a few photographs of the progress so far.

 

 

Free Puppy and Kitten Packs…

puppy and kitten

Are you contemplating getting a new puppy and/or kitten? Have you given thought to once you bring that bundle of fluff and energy home with you, the commitment, effort and sheer hard work it might take? Have you already got your new member of the family and not sure of what you need to do next? Or would you just like some general help and guidance?

Well, don’t panic, because here at Haven with every puppy/kitten registered with us, we will give you a puppy/kitten pack completely FREE.

 In these packs you will find:

A beginner’s guide to owning a puppy/kitten.

A Haven Fridge magnet with all the important contact details you might need.

A voucher for a FREE routine health check with one of our nurses.

Information on pet health plans and pet insurance.

 And for your little fluff ball, we will even give you a Haven slip lead for your new puppy and a soft toy for your kitten.

 We look forward to meeting you and your new addition and if you would like any further information, then please give one of our branches a call, we will be happy to help.

We have a lovely Christmas hamper and a “name the donkey” competition at Hedon helping us raise funds for the Donkey Sanctuary. Over at our Holderness Road branch we have a super Christmas hamper and proceeds going to Carr House dog rescue centre. The tickets are only 20p each or £1 per strip.

Raising funds for The Donkey Sanctuary

We are raising funds for The Donkey Sanctuary, such a worthy cause. It’s easy to forget the amazing contribution that donkeys and mules make to humanity and they are such hardworking creatures. Quite often they are over worked and taken advantage of and without going into statistics or shocking photographs, they sometimes need help.

So, why not drop in to our Hedon Branch of Haven and have a go on our “Name the Donkey” for just £1 a go, you could win a gorgeous cuddly donkey and know that you are helping the people who go out of their way to come to a donkeys aid when needed.

Even if you don’t want to have a go at the competition, why not drop in some loose change, every single penny helps. Thank you so much

Cake fest for Macmillan on Friday September 25th 2015

coffee morning

It is a sad fact that there are now 2.5 million people in the UK living with cancer. By 2030, it will be 4 million people and Macmillan want to be able to support them all.

1 in 3 of us will get cancer and Macmillan want to make sure that no on faces cancer alone.

Macmillan provides medical, emotional, practical and financial advice as well as campaigning for better cancer care.

All of us will be touched by cancer at some point in our lives and because of this Haven Veterinary Group Ltd are proud to be able to do something to support the great work that Macmillan carry out.

This year will see Haven participating in the Macmillan Coffee Morning for the 3rd year running, with the teams at both branches frantically baking to get ready for the day and we have already raised many hundreds of pounds up to now.

 So, why not come and see us in Hedon outside the Post Office in the High Street on the morning of the 25th September where we will have a stall selling scrumptious cakes, biscuits and cookies and at our Holderness Road Branch, we will have a stall in-house with even more delectable bakes for sale.

Every penny we raise will go direct to Macmillan and we are sure that as last year, we will sell out quickly.

 Thank you for your support from everyone here at Haven.  kitchen5
