With our recent growth and increase in services we have outgrown our Highgate site and would not be able to gain the space we need by an extension of the Highgate building, and so we have expanded!  We have worked hard on the planning, design and construction of a second site in the North of Kendal near Homebase for over a year now.  A space within an industrial unit on Beezon Road has been built to our own specification to create a veterinary surgery to match our clients, patients and own requirements.  We were very pleased to open our new site on 2nd March 2015. 

The branch is a 15 minute riverside walk from the Highgate surgery and is located at the North side of Beezon Road between Skan Petcare and the footbridge over the railway line.  The new location offers much improved parking with allocated spaces.  Also, the proximity to Kendal train station allows clients from Oxenholme, Staveley and Windermere to reach us more easily by rail too.

Highgate will remain the main centre for complicated surgery, orthopaedics and imaging (X-ray, scans, endoscopy) and we will continue to hospitalise long stay patients at the Highgate site, with the Beezon Road location open 8.30am – 5pm Monday to Friday.  Space within the new Beezon Road site is dedicated to carrying out Dental Health Procedures.  This focus will allow the operations to be carried out earlier in the day, meaning that when appropriate, patients are able to return home sooner than we had been able to offer.

The Highgate Vets @ Beezon Road site has been designed with feline-friendly recommendations in mind, to minimise the stress that a cat may experience during a visit to the vets.  As a result, we have created a cat-only waiting space, consulting room and cattery to limit cats from coming into contact with the sight and smells of dogs, to help them feel more comfortable at the practice.

The usual friendly Highgate team staff the second site, with rotas ensuring that we each get to enjoy the new premises.  We are looking forward to hosting an open day once we’ve settled in and so watch this space for details!
