£1.8 million pet hospital opens in the West Midlands
Oldbury Pet Hospital has opened in the West Midlands after a huge effort to raise £1.8 million.
Demand for the veterinary treatment rose by 79% between 2006 and 2014.
The old Pet Hospital in Quinton, which had been open since 1961, could not cope with the number of pets needing care in the area.
The new hospital on St Matthews Road, is called The Marian and Christina Ionescu Centre of Surgical Excellence and has state-of-the-art operating theatres, a critical care ward and the latest diagnostic and surgical equipment.
The new Pet Hospital has been built thanks to the generous donations of supporters and members of the public.
