The new Pets and Home store in Lower Bristol Road has opened up with a pet salon, adoption centre, aquatics centre and veterinary practice. It has taken up one of three units created in part of the former Herman Miller factory, next to Lidl, known now as Metro Retail Park. The 9,000 sq ft store was opened on Friday (March 10) by Mayor of Bath Paul Crossley.

Store manager Briony Briscoe said: “Our opening weekend went even better than we had hoped and it was great to receive the Mayor of Bath and show him the new amenities that we have on offer at the store.

“Our new store features thousands of dedicated pet products for not only local dogs and cats but small animals, fish and local wildlife too.

“We have also created five jobs for the community across a range of full-time and part-time positions.”

The adoption centre is being run independent charity Support Adoption For Pets, where pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and other small animals are cared for until a new loving home can be found.

The vets surgery, being run by Vets4Pets, boasts an operating theatre, digital X-ray facilities, in-house laboratory and a hospital ward providing a wide range of treatments from health checks to emergency operations.

Its Facebook page reads: “We’re fully equipped with consulting rooms, operating theatres and hospital wards to give your pet the best possible care.”

The store also has a pet salon, called the Groom Room, which provides a wide range of grooming options, including microchipping, nail clipping, hair trims or a full bath, blow dry and groom. All Groom Room employees receive 1,400 hours of training.

Pets at Home sells products including food, toys and training aids and its staff offer tips and advice to keep pets happy and healthy.
