Exciting times are ahead for us here at The Friendly Animal Clinic. We have been in our current rented property at the top of Tuel Lane now for 13 years, our client base has grown over this period to such proportions that it’s time for change.

After a couple of years searching for just the right space, with better parking facilities for our customers and a single ground floor working area, better suited for clients and the animals, we feel we have found the perfect spot.

The Old Post Office, Station road, HX6 3AA down in Sowerby Bridge town centre, is currently in the process of being converted into our new, state of the art veterinary surgery.

We believe this will be a much more accessible and convenient location for all our clients. It has a much bigger carpark, a wheelchair access ramp and no steep awkward stairs to negotiate for you or your pet. By car, train, on the bus or on foot we think this is the perfect location.

The outside of the building is beautiful. Full of character and dates back to 1923 when it’s original use was as a post office and sorting office. Inside, a brand new space is being created which will include a spacious reception and waiting room, with 3 large and easily accessible consult rooms. We will, as usual, be stocking pet food and accessories and also have a wheelchair accessible W.C.

The connecting old sorting office hall is being converted into 2 highly equipped theatres, separate dog kennels and cattery along with an isolation ward, an x-ray room and a separate dental room.

We are also making space for future plans to install a CT scanner that will further help to expand our diagnostic and treatment options.

We shall remain an independent veterinary practice maintaining all the one to one, personal care for your pet that you have grown to expect from husband and wife team, Myles and Cheryl. We look forward to showing all our clients and future prospective clients around the new building this coming summer.

We shall keep you all posted on the development of this exciting project in the valley, so keep checking on Facebook and the website for updates….
