As an animal owner a trip to the vets is not normally something that I look forward to because it usually means that there is something wrong with one of my dogs. However, this time it was very exciting! I had been invited to go along to Cherrydown Vets in Basildon, Essex to spend the day taking photographs to be used for their new brochure and website.
Having had pets for many years I have been a customer at many vets and would highly recommend Cherrydown to any one that lives in the surrounding areas. It’s a big, bright, clean and friendly practice and the staff really care about your furry friend(s).
Cherrydown is led by Director Jonathan Nurse and he is backed by a dedicated team of vets and nursing staff. In fact they were winners of The Good Vet Guide, Vet of the Year in 2014!
I had a great time meeting all the lovely characters that arrived for appointments thought the day. This two were just adorable. Not to mention the cuddly Cockerpoo puppy featured above, he was not lacking in volunteers for cuddles!
All the animals regardless of if they were waiting for an operation out the back or waiting for a consultation in the waiting room were happy and relaxed.
Cherrydown guarantee to be there for you 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year. Staff are on site to care for your pets, so it’s 24/7 at Cherrydown. This care is not offered by all vets. Its is very comforting knowing that there is someone with your pet all the time. The staff take the time to greet the owner and pets and it was lovely to see that after operations the nurses were giving advise to each owner on how to care for them at home.
I was lucky enough to be invited to take images during some of the operations. I even got to gown up! Obviously this was important as hygiene in the operating rooms is very key.
Working in low light conditions was a challenge, no flash was used for any of the images. This may have frightened some of the pets and would have been very distracting for the vets. I also spent quite a lot of time stood on chairs to get an elevated view of what was going on.
Advice on all types of pet care and health is freely available in a friendly environment and there is plenty of room to allow separate areas for Cats and Dogs. I always feel sorry for the cats going into small surgeries that have dogs staring at them in their cat baskets!
Another advantage is there is an outside area for a leg stretch of for doing the things that often need to be done and relaxation.
A busy and enjoyable day and as you can see the images were put to good use. The brochure really nice and full of useful information for existing and new clients.
I would like to thank Cherrydown for allowing me to share what they do with you.
