Cavan Vets has moved into a new purpose-built surgery at 48-50 High Road to meet growing demand for its services. The site is twice as large as its former premises, providing three consultation rooms, two theatres and a separate dog and cat waiting area, as well as separate wards.
As well as expanding its square footage, the firm is also increasing the services it can offer, kitting the building out with the highest standard veterinary medical equipment so that staff can perform more procedures, including X-rays on site.
This has helped Cavan Vets to create six new jobs in the local area. It has recently hired a new veterinary surgeon and is currently looking to recruit a further two veterinary nurses.
The extra space has helped the practice to cope better with the coronavirus pandemic offering a wide range of services as possible while maintaining social distancing.
Stuart Lloyd, director and veterinary surgeon at Cavan Vets, said: “We’ve seen an increasing demand for our services over the past few years, and it became apparent that we would need to invest in a new site to meet this.
“It’s helped us to continue treating patients through the corona virus outbreak and will enable us to provide vital services as we move into the new lockdown measures.”
Based on the success of the recent move, the business is also exploring ambitious plans to expand its Wolverhampton branch too.
Stuart added: “The Lloyds Bank team has been by our side throughout the process, offering invaluable support and guidance, especially as we have to think creatively about how we operate to observe social distancing. The team will no doubt continue to be a vital source of on-the-ground knowledge and expertise as we continue our growth across the Black Country.”
Sarah Woodward, relationship manager at Lloyds Bank, said: “As a nation of pet lovers, it’s not surprising that trusted and popular vets like Cavan Vets continue to go from strength to strength. The business has shown great initiative to use the extra space provided by the new site to quickly adapt to new safety guidelines and provide essential pet care services. We will be by their side on the next step of their journey as they navigate the new business landscape, and continue to support other businesses across the Midlands as part of our ongoing commitment to helping Britain prosper.”
