Entry is free and the winner in each category will be awarded an iconic rosette along with a framed photograph of their pet at the practice’s grand opening. Categories include Cutest Pet, Golden Oldie, Best of Friends, Most Appealing Eyes and a Bravery Award.
Arun Veterinary Group owner Matt Gittings said, “We know every pet has that something special, which is why our event is open to all local companion pets. It’s an exciting and fun way to celebrate that special bond between us and our pets and I’d encourage everyone to enter and then join us to celebrate with the winners on the day, on-site at our new practice in Nyton Road.”
“We have a special treat in store for the winner of our Bravery Award. The pet that has demonstrated triumph over adversity will be the guest of honour at our opening day on June 24th and the winning pet’s owner will be invited to cut the ribbon, with a framed photo of the winning pet to take pride of place on the wall of our new practice.”
The Opening Day not only provides local residents the chance  to view inside the brand new practice, but it’s also the perfect opportunity for pet owners to meet the new team, headed up by well known local, experienced veterinary surgeon, Lisa Chalmers.
Lisa said, “We’re all really looking forward to the ‘Best in Show’ event and unveiling the new practice. Those familiar with our other practices in Pulborough, Ashington and Storrington will be interested to see how the well-recognised Arun Vet Group blend of traditional and modern design has been beautifully integrated throughout the new premises.  The ‘first opinion’ services such as consultations, surgery, medicine, dentistry and radiography will all be available from Monday June 26th and the team and I will be on hand throughout the Opening Day to answer questions and take registrations for complimentary introductory consultations.”
Owner, Matt concluded: “Our drive is to always deliver value without compromising the quality and consistency of care that is the hallmark of our independent, family-style practices. In taking the Westergate location, we’re able to offer our clients abundant free parking alongside the extensive first opinion services that will be available.”
AVG’s position as the veterinary care provider of choice in West Sussex was cemented when awarded ‘Best UK Vets’ in 2014, a prestigious accolade based on reviews of individual practices as volunteered by their clients. The practice has enjoyed a long association with the wider Sussex area with a legacy that harks back to 1920 when the original founder, Francis Hunter, started AVG in nearby Petworth before establishing Arun Veterinary Group in Pulborough in 1972.  Current owners, local residents Matt and Sarah Gittings have been part of the AVG family since 2000.
