New not-for-profit vets opens first Welsh surgery in Wrexham

A new not-for-profit veterinary practice offering quality yet affordable care has opened in the town.

Wrexham’s Assembly Member, Lesley Griffiths recently visited the Animal Trust surgery which has opened on Caia Road at the site of the former Vets4Pets practice.

Being an ethical, not-for-profit veterinary surgery enables Animal Trust to focus primarily on the welfare of animals.  Every penny generated is invested back into its practices, enabling the highly-skilled team to provide more advanced standards of veterinary care, while keeping costs affordable for all pet owners.

After launching in August, Wrexham is the Animal Trust’s ninth branch and the first to be located in Wales.

In an attempt to remove barriers that may prevent pets from being brought to the vets, Animal Trust offers free consultations to all patients and is encouraging pet owners across Wrexham to register.  This helps reduce any delay in care so that all pets can receive the very best treatment as soon as they become unwell.

The Wrexham surgery also provides a number of advanced veterinary services at reasonable prices which can be found listed on their website.  In addition to the four consultation rooms, the practice contains a theatre, pharmacy, cattery, kennels and an x-ray room.

Lesley Griffiths AM toured the Animal Trust veterinary practice with Director General, Owen Monie and Lead Veterinary Surgeon, Dr Rhys Peters.

After her visit, Ms Griffiths said: “Despite only being open for a few months, Animal Trust has already had a positive impact in Wrexham, with hundreds of clients registering at the veterinary practice.”

“Their not-for-profit ethos and free consultations offer pet owners peace of mind and access to prompt expert advice, regardless of their location or income.”
