Have your say

Two well loved Spalding vets are bidding farewell to the town this week.

Suzhy and V from Vetsavers in the town are moving on to pastures new following three years at the veterinary practice.

During their time in Spalding, they have seen new clients join them, much loved pets who have said goodbye and new lives with endless puppies and kittens registering.

But now it is time for them to say goodbye, and they will be heading off to Worksop.

Suzhy said: “Sadly I lost my father suddenly in September this year.

“My dad was my idol and everything I did at Spalding I did to make him proud.

“The owner of the veterinary group really is the most amazing person, and when he heard of my loss he offered me the opportunity to open a new branch of Vetsavers.

“The new branch is located in Worksop and means that I can commute daily and will still be around for my mum.”

The pair built up the practice together, and it was officially opened in February 2012, so it made sense for the two of them to do the same in their new practice.

Suzhy said: “The deal was that both V and I had to re-
locate together as a proven.

“After lengthy discussions the transfer was agreed.

“In my time at Spalding we have had staff come and go, but none as committed as Nikki who joined us in June this year.

“Nikki has become my right hand lady in so many aspects in running the branch and, although I will miss working with her very much, our clients are delighted that she will remain and run the branch”

Clients were able to go along to the practice last week to meet new vet Matthew, who has carefully been selected to take over from V.

Suzhy, who along with V, completes her last day at the practice tomorrow, said: “I have really enjoyed my time at Spalding and I know V has too.

“As many of you know, I have written a weekly column for this newspaper offering advice on your pets for the last year and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed doing so. We will both miss the practice and everything and everyone associated with it.”
