Our 2016 Open Day attracted over 200 visitors to the Hospital for a chance to see behind the scenes, meet the team and take part in lots of activities, competitions and demos.  The day marked the official opening of our new Small Animal hospital extension, which is now all in use.  It was also a chance for people to see vets Catriona Laird and Chris Booth who are now Partners in the Small Animal hospital.

Lots of the events on the day were in aid of Canine Partners, our charity for 2016, who attended with a number of dogs in training and provided a fantastic demo of what their amazing dogs do to help people with disabilities.  In total we raised £437.44 from our raffle and competitions so thank you to all of those who entered.

It was an action-packed day with lots of clients and members of the public having chance to view the facilities and find out more about the products and services we offer. 


It's official, Oakham Veterinary Hospital has been awarded Cat Friendly Clinic gold level status.  As part of our extension and refurbishment we have taken many steps to minimise the stress levels for cats visiting us, and their owners.

As a practice we understand that cats are highly sensitive to new sights, sounds and smells.  We now have a separate consulting room for cat appointments only and some dedicated 'cat only' appointment slots in the diary.  The separate cat waiting area is not only a dog free space but also contains raised cubby holes (with blankets provided) where cat carriers can be hidden out of sight of dogs, other cats and people waiting. 

Our Small Animal team includes two 'Cat Advocates'; Veterinary Nurse, Rachel Bell and Partner, Catriona Laird.  They both ensure that the Cat Friendly Clinic standards are adhered to and are more than happy to talk to clients about the scheme.

For more information about the criteria and how we meet those standards please ask at Reception for our Cat Friendly Clinic Guide or download one below.
