A Norwich veterinary practice which has treated more than 50,000 animals since opening 25 years ago has celebrated its silver anniversary.
Taverham Vets was opened in March 1994 by brother and sister Roger Bannock, Joy Thompson and fellow vet Louise Feltham.
The original veterinary was housed in their former childhood home on Breck Farm Lane.
As it expanded, the practice moved to a purpose built facility on Fir Covert Road. It now employs 80 staff with three branches in Taverham, Costessey and Aylsham.
Dr Bannock said: 'Things have changed a lot in 25 years, expectations have increased as has pet ownership. Medicine and surgery has changed at a rapid rate.

The practice had a special day of pet photography and free treatment to mark its anniversary.
