On Wednesday, September 7, 2016, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall arrived a the Battersea Dogs and Cats (BDC) home in South London. During her visit the lovely duchess officially opened the home’s new Veterinary Hospital & Centre of Excellence as well as met with staff and their furry friends.
According to the official website for the Battersea Dogs and Cats home the new hospital provides:
“…state-of-the-art clinical facilities will play a pivotal role in our aim to never turn away an animal in need of help. [The hospital] has three top-spec operating theatres, enabling our staff to perform well over 100 operations per week. For the first time ever, we will have a dedicated dental suite to care for the 80 per cent of animals who arrive at our Home with problem teeth. Brand new intensive care areas and sound-proofed recovery wards with separate space for dogs and cats will allow for a peaceful and calm recovery.”
