October 16th 2017, We opened our CT scanner officially. The mayor of Wigan and Billy Boston MBE were kind enough to open the scanner, it was broadcasted on Facebook live and covered by the local papers and national veterinary publications. All our staff have now been fully trained and all the hard work has paid off as it all went to plan perfectly.
September 2017, we are also lucky enough to be finialists for the Mersyside, Cheshire and Wigan Federation of small businesses under the catogary "Best family business of the year". The awards night is on the 7th December 2017 in Liverpool and if we win this one then we will be attending a national award under the same catagory in London, fingers crossed.
August 2017, A few long nights trying to prepare the room the the arrival of the CT scanner. It has a very specific requirement for for the preperation. The whole room as to be made out of lead to hold in the radiation and we have to make a whole on the wall to get the scanner itself into the room. The room prep will take us about 3 months as we are doing the work ourselves to ensure it is done to our high standard.
May 2017, We have just invested heavily in a new CT scanner. This will be in place of our hydrotherapy pool and unfortunatly we will be removing the pool completly. This is the plan for the CT scanner and it will compliment our MRI scanner that we already have. This will ensure that no matter the issue with your pet we have the experience and facility to deal with it.
Febuary 21017 Welcome to the team,
Fiammetta Baccetti MRCVS
I graduated from the Department of Veterinary Medicine in Pisa (Italy) in 2015.
Then, after gaining some experience in a Veterinary Hospital in Barcelona (Spain) and in a Small Animal Clinic in Italy, I decided to move working in UK and gladly joined the Anrich’s team.
Though I enjoy all aspects of the job, I have a special interest in surgery, both soft tissue and orthopaedic, in which I hope to specialize in the close future.
When I’m not working I enjoy spending time travelling, for real if it’s possible or alternatively just with my mind reading a good book while cuddling my wonderful cat Lambert.
January 2017, We have just finished our waiting area which has enabled us to fit more seating together with a private waiting area for the more sensitive visits. We have also put up a mural of a chocolate lab in loving memory of Tilly Weston (Richard and Anji's dog that sadly passed away a few years ago). Watch this space for pictures of the new private waiting area.
January 2017, We have changed out out of hours service to Vets

December 2016, Welcome to Edyda Handel MRCVS Veterinary Surgeon
I graduated from University of Environmental and Life Sciences in Wroclaw, Poland in 2015. Since then I have been working in a small animal
clinic. This work expereience has had direct impact to develop a strong interest in internal medicine. In 2015 I finished my laboratory diagnostic workshop including hematology, cytology and
biochemistry. Thanks to this I discovered my passion for the microscope which is very helpful in my daily work.
I have keen interest in small animal medicine and in close future I would like to start specialization in this area. Privately, I am happy owner of rabbit Bobka.
