A new veterinary practice has opened in Richmond with a little help from comedian Rufus Hound.

Vets4pets opened at Pets at Home, Manor Road, on Friday, February 6, with the ribbon cutting by the television personality.

The practice has three consultation rooms, a laboratory, operating theatre and separate cat and dog waiting areas.

Roger Bralow, practice owner, said: "I am incredibly proud and excited to be opening my own veterinary practice in Richmond.

"I have been lucky enough to find an excellent team that I am confident will provide the very highest level of care to the local animals."
