For more than 15 years, Calvert Veterinary Center has been a community mainstay on Mountain Road.
While pet owners may have noticed some changes over the last few months, medical director Dr. Christine Calvert, who founded the center, said the focus remains the same.
“It’s all the same employees, same vision, and same philosophy to serve our patients,” said Calvert, who is now partnering with the Veterinary Centers of America (VCA). “The transition helped me focus more on medicine and client interactions so we can continue to give high-quality care.”
Now that she is not tied up with as many administrative tasks, Calvert has more time to tend to animals and to work with her staff of six doctors and roughly 15 support staff members.
The transition has also allowed the center to reach out to the VCA network for resources and to find continuing education courses.
“The courses cover such things as how to treat pets with weight loss, and hands-on training with skin disease,” Calvert said.
VCA Calvert Veterinary Center has unveiled other upgrades, such as an online store with home delivery. A new website can be found at www.vcahospitals.com/calvert.
The center will still be involved in the same community events, like the Halloween pet costume contest, and serve a diverse group of patients.
“We’re one of the few places that serves the range of animals from small mammals to birds and reptiles,” Calvert said.
