We're OpenThank yous!!

They said 6-8 weeks, and we are open at the end of week 8.  A huge thank you to all our local tradesmen who have worked so hard and done a fantastic job of making our new practice look so swish!  Come along to our open day on Saturday  July 5th (2-4pm) and  see for yourself - meet the staff and tour the premises, including operating theatre, kennels and grooming room.

Specifically we want to say a huge thanks to:

Alan Neuman -a magician, who had the task of co-ordinating the project and putting up with all our demands – with a never failing smile and shrug of his shoulders!  The rest of the team from Alan Neumann Joiners and Glaziers -  Alan and Andy, who have beavered away creating a purposeful vet clinic from an empty industrial unit.

Thanks to the team of electricians from Gus MacDonald Electrical - Gus, Davie and Greg, for lighting up our darkness, and connecting us with the outside world.
To Jon MacIsaac of JTM Plumbing and Heating for meeting our demands for hot water at points all over the building simultaneously.

Hamish MacNaughton
  deserves our thanks for creating a dog run so that animals recovering from surgery can get outside for a wee while.  Hamish keeps digging even when the heavens have been pouring down for days!

Thanks to Pete Cartwright for all his advice on things telecom.

To Kirsty King for our half barrels full of plants cheering up the outside of the building.
You’ve all become our friends this last few weeks and we’ll miss you!  To the rest of Callander – maybe you’ll be able to get a tradesman now, since we’ve not got them any more!!

Week One:
It’s been very exciting at our new premises in Callander this week.  The builders have arrived, and stripped out all the old walls, and immediately began building our new rooms.  So, we can now see where our new consult rooms, operating theatre and x-ray rooms will be!!
