Inauguration of the Bierzoo Veterinary Hospital: UNAVETS launches new 24-hour veterinary hospital in Ponferrada, Spain.

Bierzoo Veterinary Hospital, a 24-hour hospital providing first opinión, specialist and emergency care, opened its doors in March 2023 with a brand new 500 m2 facility.
The hospital is presented as a comprehensive option to meet the local demand of pets and their owners in the Bierzo region. Among the services offered by this modern hospital are 24-hour on-site emergencies, independent hospitalisation for dogs and cats, CAT scans, ultrasound scans, x-rays and independent consultations for both felines and canines.  It also offers medical specialities such as feline medicine, exotic animal specilization, traumatology and orthopaedics, dermatology, ophthalmology, internal medicine and minimally invasive surgery. 

In addition to these services, the hospital has three consult and  two operating theator rooms, a laboratory equipped with state-of-the-art technology, allowing for accurate and efficient on-the-spot diagnostic tests.  

The team of Clínicas Veterinarias Bierzoo, who manage 2 other locations  (Bembibre and Cacabelos) in the broader región, has been enthusiastic about the opportunity to collaborate with both pet owners and other veterinary professionals in the area.  Clinical director, Marcos López, shares, "We are very excited about the new hospital. The new equipment and space will give us the capacity to offer the best quality care to our pets, as well as the referral care that other colleagues in the sector need".
Miguel Casado, Network Development director for UNAVETS shares, “The opening of this hospital represents a breakthrough in the field of veterinary care in Ponferrada, as it provides pet owners with the peace of mind of having quality services 24 hours a day. The Bierzoo Veterinary Hospital hopes to become a benchmark in the region in terms of excellent veterinary care.” 

The opening ceremony on June 9th, 2023 will be attended by local authorities, Unavets Group managers, as well as veterinary specialists in the sector.
