New 'common sense' veterinary practice to open in Cambridgeshire

Wednesday, 20th March 2013

A former restaurant in the town of Witchford, Cambridgeshire, will soon be swapping burgers and roasts for dog and cat food, after it was bought out by two local vets and converted into a new practice which aims to provide "common sense veterinary care".

Johnson and Scott Vets has been set up by Joanne Johnson and Cathy Scott on the site formerly known as Needhams Restaurant, and will specialise in treating unusual animals, the Ely Standard reports.

The practice will offer a full 24-hour emergency service for all pets, with Ms Johnson describing the business as "a personal friendly practice where you can see your own vet every time you come to ensure continuity of care".

The two business partners have more than 35 years of veterinary experience between them, and the new surgery will be open from 8am on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with appointments until 6.50pm on Mondays and Thursdays.
