Our veterinary hospital and boarding cattery are on the Northern edge of Chipping Norton opposite the Aldi supermarket on the A361 Banbury Road. Chipping Norton is on the intersection of the A361 Swindon to Banbury road and the A44 Oxford to Evesham road.
We moved into our purpose-built veterinary hospital in February 2015, from our original hospital premises on Albion Street in the middle of Chipping Norton.
The hospital has two storeys with the clinical areas all downstairs and the administration and accommodation for staff on duty out-of-hours upstairs. There is a large car park for clients, a large waiting room so that cats and dogs can wait apart, and four consult rooms. There are three dog wards, are large cat ward, and separate wards for 'small furries' including rabbits, and for exotic pets such as birds and reptiles. We also have a CT scanner, which is often used for patients from other veterinary practices in the area, a radioiodine therapy unit for treating hyperthyroid cats from all over the south of England, and a boarding cattery. Here are a few 'behind the scenes' views of the inside of the hospital:
The drug dispensary:
The prep room, the 'heart' of the Hospital, where patients admitted to the Hospital undergo diagnostic tests or are prepared for surgery, dental work, Xrays, etc.:
We are just starting the process of extending our radioiodine unit, which is located just behind the hospital. When that is finished we will be landscaping the rest of the area behind the hospital as wildflower meadow to encourage bumble bees for conservation purposes.
