More than 60 people enjoyed curry and wine at an event laid on by The Forest Vet, Maresfield, on Wednesday night.
The practice holds regular get-togethers for customers and this one took place at Blue Asia, in London Road, Uckfield.
Director Dr Rachael Vinod Nair uses the occasion to give animal owners more information to help them look after their pets and this time she focussed on The Two Big Cs, Cancer and Chemotherapy.
She said afterwards: “The evening was a great success. These get-togethers are great for our team and clients to get to know each other better outside the usual consultations.”
The Forest Vet is a thriving practice and is now also represented in India where Rachael, who recently married there, was prompted by a growing population of stray dogs and cats to set up a charity The Forest Vet India, in Kerala, which will offer free neutering services and veterinary advice.
Back in Sussex the practice is now offering nurse clinics on osteoarthritis, geriatric, dental care and Fu’s Fat Fighters.
The Forest Vet will be celebrating its two-year anniversary with an open day and dog show on Saturday, June 3.
All are welcome to call in at the practice between 2 and 4.30pm for a tour and to enjoy drinks and nibbles.
There will also be a dog show with classes including Most handsome boy, Prettiest bitch, Most appealing eyes, Golden oldie, Best behaved puppy (up to a year), Best trick, and Dog the judge wants to take home.
