Cape Coral Pet Vet sets ribbon cutting for new facility
A brand new facility to bring your pet for a simple checkup or specific ailment is now open for canines and felines of Southwest Florida.
Cape Coral Pet Vet, a full-service veterinary hospital in the area for more than a decade, is set to cut the ribbon on their modern, 4,000-square-foot space on Oct. 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The event will include tours of the facility, opportunities to meet the staff, ask the veterinarians questions, and have a chance at some prizes. Vendors will be present, along with booths for community organizations such as the Cape Coral Animal Shelter and Chamber Leadership Class of 2021. The ribbon cutting will be hosted by the Cape Coral Chamber of Commerce and include elected officials and community leaders.
“We’re very excited for this opportunity to show the community our new building,” said Cape Coral Pet Vet owner Dr. Cecilia Fisher. “It’s taken a lot of hard-work making this facility a reality, but we are so thankful to our wonderful clients, our staff, the community, our vendors, and our construction team that made our new home a reality.”
The building, which features two separate entrances and exam rooms for dogs and cats, is loaded with pet-friendly features such as LED lighting that can change colors and in-room music to help soothe pets. The cat rooms also have feline furniture and a large virtual fish tank. For pet parents, the clinic offers seven exam rooms equipped to display X-rays and ultrasounds, indoor and outdoor waiting areas, and a dedicated peaceful room for end-of-life services.
Fisher said the new facility is nearly three times as large as their previous location, not too far from where they are now. She added the number of new families and pets coming into the area is constantly rising, and that the new building will only help further their goal of offering the best care they can for animals.
“It’s given us an opportunity to grow,” Fisher said. “We try to have personal connection with the clients and the people. We have a great staff that is very friendly and knowledgeable, and we try and educate our clients.
“We have seen the number of new pets, number of new owners, has continued to grow. And the area also is continuing to grow,” she said. “The demand has certainly increased, and the new building has allowed us to (meet that demand).”
