DATELINE: MAY 6, 1996
24 years ago MAVH opened its doors to serve pets and their families! Each day we looked forward to that, hoping our community would “find us” on Professional Court. Not as many buildings here then, nothing behind us but grass and the occasional deer.
Inside our walls was another story–lots going on thanks to Dr.Franklin’s dedication and determination to make his hospital the best it could be. Our building originally housed several human medical practices so we had to add some walls, remove others, bring in specialized equipment, and (eventually) replace the carpeting in the waiting room, as we created a facility for cats and dogs to receive comprehensive, high quality healthcare, especially surgery and internal medicine.
We were excited and worked hard; launching a brand new hospital/business took deep faith, perseverance, and plenty of teamwork, which we had in spades. And you not only found us, but also entrusted us with your beloved cats and dogs-thousands of them!
Fast-forward to May 6, 2020 and we’re still excited!
Even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic MAVH has been providing comprehensive, high quality essential healthcare for cats and dogs, particularly internal medicine and even surgery when necessary.
You still trust us to do what’s best for your pets, which we respect and really appreciate. We’re petparents, too, and understand how much those furry faces mean to a family, especially now!
Our hospital has doubled in size since 1996, again thanks to Dr. Franklin’s determination and the support of his late wife, Corazon, but we are still the same MAVH inside, lots going on, plenty of teamwork, and a heartfelt gratitude for your pets and you!
