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.
Andy Williamson, who owns the practice owners with his wife Nicole who is the practice manager,
said: 'When the building came up for sale we jumped at the chance

'As the building was virtually an empty shell we were able to put
all the rooms just where we wanted them.'
Uplands Way Veterinary Clinics also have practices in Attleborough and Stanton, near Diss.
Mr Williamson, who started at the practice in 1991, said the clinic will remain committed to treating all species, from dogs to zebra.
He added: 'We will continue to
offer a full and expanding service to our farming clients who are so important to rural economies and to our horse clients.
'We're really proud of our new clinic and we hope visits to us are that much nicer now.'
