Save the date for our bril­liant open day on Novem­ber 17

The Wokingham Paper - - LEISURE - With Michael Morrow

ST VIN­CENTS Ve­teri­nary Surgery are de­lighted to an­nounce our Open Day on Satur­day 17th Novem­ber 2018 from 2pm to 4.30pm. We would like to in­vite you to join us to see be­hind the scenes at a busy ve­teri­nary prac­tice, meet the staff and own­ers Michael and Nancy Morrow and spend some time look­ing at our ex­hibitors and en­joy­ing some re­fresh­ments. All wel­come at this fun filled fam­ily and pet friendly day..

On ar­rival you will be in­vited to tour the prac­tice as part of a small guided group, and be given a fas­ci­nat­ing in­sight into the pro­ce­dures and op­er­a­tions that take place in the prep room and theatre.

Di­ag­nos­tic and ther­a­peu­tic equip­ment, as well as new and old ap­proaches to anaes­the­sia will be on dis­play and dis­cussed.

We hope that you, as own­ers, will also gain some ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the com­plex­i­ties of pro­vid­ing qual­ity med­i­cal and sur­gi­cal ve­teri­nary care for your pets.

At the end of our Open Day we will also be an­nounc­ing the win­ner of the com­pe­ti­tion to name our new am­bu­lance (pic­tured below) – please en­ter via Face­book or in the prac­tice on the day to have a chance of win­ning some bub­bles and choco­lates.

Af­ter the tour we in­vite you to join our ex­hibitors up­stairs and en­joy some re­fresh­ments. We have a range of fun and in­for­ma­tive peo­ple join­ing us for the af­ter­noon.

We will be fundrais­ing for The Cin­na­mon Trust, a won­der­ful char­ity help­ing older peo­ple keep their pets and the emo­tional sup­port that brings, whether in their own home or when go­ing into a res­i­den­tial en­vi­ron­ment. We strongly sup­port the hu­man health as­pect of pet own­er­ship, and would ask that you do­nate on the day, ei­ther by en­ter­ing the raf­fle or just ask a staff mem­ber how else you can help. We are also go­ing to be joined by the team from Ca­nine As­sisted Learn­ing and some of their su­perb dogs who work with chil­dren in schools, im­prov­ing be­hav­iour and at­ten­tion and en­hanc­ing the lives of young peo­ple through­out the bor­ough. The re­sults of their work with young peo­ple are fan­tas­tic to see and I would en­cour­age you to chat to them to find out more about their work.

The Ferret Club will be with us again with some of their won­der­ful fer­rets for peo­ple to see and han­dle. This year there’s a twist as they will also be joined by Hopi the skunk, who I am as­sured is quite de­light­ful and not at all smelly!

I think staff and vis­i­tors alike will be fas­ci­nated to meet Hopi. Our or­thopaedic sur­geon Nicci Mead­ows will be on hand to dis­cuss the range of or­thopaedic ser­vices cur­rently of­fered at St Vin­cents Vets, and will have im­plants and tech­niques on dis­play and be avail­able to an­swer your ques­tions.

There will also be a ta­ble of fluffy ‘pa­tients’ for our younger vis­i­tors to try their hand at some ban­dag­ing, and Suz Sun­shine Face Paint­ing will be of­fer­ing face paint­ing for young and old alike.

In ad­di­tion to cof­fee, teas and snacks, we will be joined by Siren Craft Brew­ery - of­fer­ing some free sam­ples of their award win­ning ales. They will also have some items for sale. This may be the per­fect end to your visit.

All of us here at St Vin­cents Ve­teri­nary Surgery look for­ward to see­ing you at our prac­tice. Ex­ist­ing and prospec­tive clients, friends, fam­ily and well be­haved pets all wel­come.

Dog­gySmiles cre­ative pho­tog­ra­phy will be tak­ing pho­tos on the day so re­mem­ber to tell your pets to look their best!

Please join us on Satur­day 17th Novem­ber be­tween 2pm and 4.30pm for our Open Day. St Vin­cents Ve­teri­nary Surgery is at Oak­lands Park, Wokingham, RG41 2FD.
