A new veterinary service has opened in Portishead.
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.

Dr Radev has spent the past few years working at Companion Care Filton alongside Paul Guckian, who is said to be delighted for Nikolay to be taking on his own practice and went along to show his support on the opening day.

An opening ceremony was held on Friday, with Portishead resident Nicola Evans asked to perform the duty. Nicola has 10 rabbits, of which six of them have been treated by Dr Radev.
A Vets4Pets spokesman said: “Nicola and Nikolay instantly became good friends during his time at Filton Companion Care through their shared passion for animals and she will be registering all of her rabbits with the Portishead practice as soon as possible.”
To celebrate the surgery’s opening, a family fun day was held on Saturday. People were able to meet the team and have a look around the premises, as well as enjoy a number of activities, ranging from face-painting to balloon-modelling.
