Hi Pete, The People's Dispensary for Sick Animals has a thread on the forum that goes back to 2002. The one on Lichfield Road has been gone for years and they list two places now but which one they are located at I'm not sure. One is listed as Grosvenor Road, Aston and the other as Dulverton Road, Witton.
I most certaily remember it as i only lived along the lichfield rd when growing up ;
and by coincidence my next door neibour jackie; whom was working there all way back in that time
when i got talking to her ; as you do asking where are you from and that kind of talk ;
when i said lichfield rd ; and she said cor blimmey ; when i was young i worked there as a assitant
to the vet ; and we moved across to grovener rd and i told her remember her and the vet
she was a young welsh girl at the time; it goes to show what a small world we are living in ; aint it
best wishes alan ; astonian
