The move was designed to better serve the area’s pets through a wider range of services, extensive diagnostic tools and advanced treatment technologies.
The high cost of today’s technology can only be obtained through larger veterinary organizations, said John Crowell, DVM, of STVA.
“The leaders of both practices are committed to providing the latest technology and the widest range of services for the area’s pets,” he said. “Combining our two practices is an effective way to do this.”
As part of the merger agreement, University Animal Hospital will be consolidated at the STVA facility at 205 Front St. Medical records are being transferred and pet owners are being notified of the change.
STVA said it is encouraging pet owners to learn more about the facility to help make the transition as smooth as possible. To help facilitate this, STVA will host an open house on June 11, from 10 a.m. – noon and from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. A second open house will take place June 13, from 10 a.m. – noon.
