In our second article about popular local vets we take a look at Ash Tree Vets in Market Harborough. Like Town and Country Vets, Ash Tree Vets is also highly rated and seemingly popular with residents in Market Harborough.
Ash Tree Vets – Three Branches
For the purposes of this article we are looking at the Market Harborough branch of Ash Tree Vets. It should be noted however that they also have branches in Desborough and Kibworth. I get the sense that the Market Harborough branch is their main branch, based on the fact that it’s the only branch open on Saturday and they also have slightly longer opening hours during the week.
Market Harborough Branch Opening Hours
The Market Harborough branch is located at:
124 Northampton Road,
Their website lists the opening hours as follows:
Monday – Friday 8:30am – 6:55pm
Saturday 8:45am – 3:25pm
These hours compare well with other local vets, offering longer opening hours than Town and Country Vets and Vets4Pets, both of which are situated close by in Market Harborough. For emergencies outside these opening hours Ash Tree Vets have partnered with two other local vets, namely The Park Veterinary Hospital in Leicester and Northlands Veterinary Hospital in Kettering.
Ash Tree Vets seems to offer the complete range of services that you would expect from a local vet. Flea and worming treatments, dental care, microchipping, neutering, operations and general healthcare and dietary advice. Interestingly they don’t list the prices of common procedures like Town and Country Vets do. I don’t think they have anything to hide with their prices, it’s more likely that updating prices on a website can become a time consuming task. If you are a customer of Ash Tree Vets however, it would be interesting for readers to know how they compare on prices to other local vets. Leave a comment at the end of this article if you have lots of experience with Market Harborough vets.
The practice seems very well kitted out with modern equipment including the following:
- Two fully equipped operating theatres
- Ultrasound scanner
- Blood analysing machine (having this in house could mean getting results faster)
- Digital X-Ray machine
- Rigid endoscope
- Good range of dental equipment
Ash Tree Vets Website Articles
Another thing I noticed about Ash Tree Vets that I liked was that they use their website to publish useful articles with information for pet owners. For instance their most recent article looks at noise and fireworks phobias which is very relevant at this time of year. Another recent article mentions that there is a shortage of some cat vaccines currently, something that might be relevant to you and worth knowing. Having access to local information is particularly useful for pet owners. In the event that you are aware of a local Kennel Cough outbreak or confirmed instances of Alabama Rot means you can be much more alert or change the locations where you walk your dog.
