Dallas, Texas: December 14th, 2016. MedVet Medical & Cancer Centers for Pets is pleased to announce its expansion into Texas with the addition of Emergency Animal Clinic, Inc. which includes three emergency veterinary hospitals in the greater Dallas area. As of today, each location will become part of the MedVet family of hospitals and renamed as follows: the Greenville location is now MedVet Dallas, the Richardson location is now MedVet Richardson, and the Uptown Dallas location is now MedVet Uptown.

“We are very excited to be expanding into Texas and the Dallas community,” said MedVet President, Dr. Eric Schertel. “Area veterinarians and pet owners have trusted the Emergency Animal Clinic, Inc. to provide emergency care for their pets and MedVet will continue to deliver the highest level of compassionate medical care.” Very much like the Emergency Animal Clinic, MedVet has a long history of being committed to veterinary ownership and leadership and dedicated to supporting the referring community of general practice veterinarians.  MedVet remains a veterinary owned and led organization, and is dedicated to exceptional specialty and emergency care for pets.

Dr. Linda Lehmkuhl, MedVet’s Chief Medical Officer and the Regional Medical Director of MedVet Dallas said, “MedVet Dallas, MedVet Uptown and MedVet Richardson will continue to provide existing emergency services with no initial change in hours and services. In the coming months, we will evaluate the opportunities to add specialty offerings and expand our emergency hours to 24/7 at the MedVet Dallas hospital. Our goal is to fuse the strength and reputation of the Emergency Animal Clinic with MedVet’s well-known emergency and specialty healthcare expertise to provide the highest quality of care to local veterinary practices, pets and their families.”

In addition to Dallas, MedVet operates a network of eleven medical centers in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, and Alabama, and is committed to delivering the highest quality, most compassionate specialty and emergency veterinary care available in the nation.
