Closure of Animal Health Trust in Newmarket results in rare sale of specialist veterinary equipment

The closure of an animal treatment centre in Newmarket, whose clients included those from West Norfolk, has resulted in a rare sale of specialist equipment.

The Animal Health Trust had faced fundraising issues exacerbated by the coronvirus pandemic and was forced to close its doors via a proposed liquidation earlier this year. The site housed operations including a small animal clinic, MRI equipment and cancer centre, hydrotherapy unit, kennels, and extensive scientific and R&D laboratories.

The sale, managed by asset management specialists Gordon Brothers, will be of interest to those from the animal care, veterinary and agriculture industries.
