A conversation with a trusted colleague is sometimes just what you need to set you down a path you might not have otherwise considered. For Dr. Hillary Cook, owner of Animal Wellness Center in Crozet, VA, that’s precisely how her relationship with Innovetive Petcare (“IPC”) began.
After catching up with another IPC partner, Dr. Tripp Stewart of Greenbrier Emergency Animal Hospital in Charlottesville, VA, she hoped the IPC model would be a good fit for her hospital and its expansion project already in the works.
Dr. Cook recognized Crozet was growing rapidly as a city, and to keep pace, her hospital- which has been recognized as “Best in the Neighborhood” in 2019 and 2020 and “Best in Charlottesville” Runner Up in 2022- would need to grow with it. This translated to a 5,000 sq. ft. addition, set to be completed in Spring 2023, and the right partner to help facilitate the expanded services Animal Wellness Center will soon be able to provide.
A full-service facility catering to dogs, cats, and exotics, with a passion for integrative services such as holistic medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic care, and rehabilitation therapy, Animal Wellness Center is poised to continue serving its ever-growing community with Innovetive Petcare alongside them every step of the way!
