First Vets4Pets opens in Pets at Home Store

The opening of Vets4Pets Cortonwood in Barnsley is the first Vets4Pets to open within a Pets at Home store since the merger in April. Seasoned joint venture partners Peter and Caroline Richards have welcomed a third partner into the business, Vet Surgeon Emma Venesky who will be taking a lead role in the practice, have opened the practice.

Peter and Caroline opened their first practice in Barnsley some 11 years ago, the fourth ever Vets4Pets, which has been a great success and grown from strength to strength.

Ever the entrepreneurs, when Peter and Caroline heard that a new Pets at Home store was to open in the Barnsley area, they jumped at the chance to open their second practice, as keen business people having a in-store practice was a welcome challenge.

Equine infection control

Every horse owner will experience the many traumas and injuries that horses pick up through being in the stable, in the field or while being ridden.

Wounds, soft tissue injuries and infections are part and parcel of keeping a horse, so a good first aid kit is an essential part of any stable yard and a good anti-bacterial spray a crucial part of it.

As our understanding of how horse’s bodies work advances, so do the products that we can use to treat them.

Challenge for small animal Vets to inter-practice charity Tetrathlon



Energetic equine vets at Abbey Equine Clinic, based in Abergavenny, South Wales have thrown down the gauntlet to their small animal veterinary colleagues for a two-day sponsored tetrathlon on 9 to 10 August 2013. This tough challenge, comprising cycling, swimming, running and dressage riding, is to raise funds for the children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent.

The creative inter-practice contest was cooked up by Bryony Lovell-Williams, Office Manager at Abbey Equine Clinic, to turn the friendly rivalry between the small animal and equine sides of the business into a fun, fund raising exercise for an extremely worthwhile cause.
