A family-run vets, which was founded more than 100 years ago, is celebrating after moving to a new state-of-the-art clinic.
Uplands Way Veterinary Clinics were based in Uplands Way in Diss but have moved premises because they needed more space.
The clinic can now be found on Low Road in Bressingham, which is next door to Bressingham Steam and Gardens.
The new clinic has separate wards for cats and dog, including three large kennels, and a dedicated ward for the more unusual pets such as tortoises and wildlife casualties.
There is overnight accommodation for staff nursing critical care animal patients and three operating theatres.
