The first set of four-legged friends were welcomed through the Vets4Pets doors on Friday morning.

The practice is located inside the Pets at Home store, in Wyndham Retail Park.

Surgeon Dr Nikolay Radev will lead the practice and believes pet owners will benefit from the team’s expertise.

He said: “I am delighted that I now have a practice of my own to serve the community and pets of Portishead.
