"We are not just vets, we are a family".
August 2019. Anrich Vets host a charity open day. We opened our doors to the public and allowed members of the public to experience a day in the life of a veterinary professional. The event had a fantastic turn out, people came down to see the live surgery, teddy bear surgery, endoscopy practicals, face painting, free prosecco and butler service! We raised over £500 which bosses Richard and James rounded up to £1000 for our chosen charity "My Life". Thank you to all who donated and came down to share the day with us!
December 2018, we are delighted to announce that we are now Gold Standard in the ISFM Cat Friendly Clinic. Sue, one of our nurses, has worked hard for this, being our cat friendly advocate. You will see that we have cat only waiting room and our new cat only clinics, run by veterinary surgeon Chavdar Chernev. For more information on cat only clinics, speak to our reception team.
We are delighted to welcome our new Veterinary Surgeon Lisa Watts. Lisa studied at the Univeristy of Veterinary Medicine, Kosice Slovakia. The best part of being a vet, in Lisa's opinion, is seeing her patients get better due to her work. In her home town of Ireland she has a pet Yorkshire Terrier, in her spare time you will find Lisa in the gym. Welcome to the team Lisa!
Following the success of The Great Anrich Bake off, we totalled £444 but it does not end there. Clinical and Business Directors Richard and James Weston donated the money made from the evening consultations, totalling our donation to a whopping £1444! We are thrilled to donate this money to Macmillan. We are greatful for all your kind donations and for making the day a success!
October 2018 we held 'The Great Anrich Bake Off' in aid of Macmillan. Staff and clients where invited to pick up their aprons, bake cakes and donate prizes for an event hosted at our Wigan hospital. Causing competitive rivalry between the team, staff baked cakes where judged by our very own Paul Hollywood- veterinary surgeon Chavdar Chernev. The day was a great success and we are currently totalling up our donations.
June 2018, we would like to give a warm welcome to our new veterinary surgeon Chavdar Chernev. Chavdar graduated from Trakia University, Bulgaria, in 2014 and has developed a keen interest in advanced imaging. Chavdar is due to start his imaging certificate to better his knowledge in diagnostic imaging. In her spare time you'll find Chavdar at the gym or at his aikido class.
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.
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.
