Cuyahoga Valley Veterinary Clinic expands hours, services under new ownership

by Martin McConnell

The Cuyahoga Valley Veterinary Clinic located at 3850 Brecksville Rd. is now under new ownership. Dr. Michael Grguric purchased the business from Dr. Christine Dresser, who will continue working in the clinic along with Dr. Scott Jackson, whom Grguric hired to join the practice.

The practice manager, Jennifer Orr, explained that the clinic will expand its hours and evolve from being a vaccination clinic to a full-service clinic. She said the clinic will function like a primary care physician for animals.

“[Dr. Grguric] does not want anyone to feel that they are just a number in the system,” Orr said. “We are very excited to be joining Dr. Dresser and continuing what she started in the Richfield community. Our goal is to build off what Dr. Dresser has done and provide progressive medicine with a caring heart to the surrounding area.”

Expanding the services will allow the hospital to provide more treatments and therapies. Cuyahoga Valley Veterinary Clinic will still perform regular wellness exams and vaccines, while adding laser therapy and surgery, hospitalization, ultrasound, advanced medicine and surgical care, orthopedic surgeries, dental work with digital x-rays, and other advanced therapies.

Laser treatments are a great healing therapy and they help reduce pain according to Orr. “We are excited to offer more options to our clients and more therapies. By offering more surgeries and medical therapies our clients will be able to stay with us and feel comfortable with the care and treatments,” she said.

The vision of the clinic is to be a locally owned veterinary hospital that is compassionate with pets and their families, with reliable appointment scheduling and fair pricing. When possible they will provide same-day appointments.

“We feel that your pet is a family member. When [a pet] has an issue you would like to have your family veterinarian see your pet, so we are going to work hard to provide that service,” Orr said.

The clinic would like to continue to add another doctor or two, along with support staff, to offer additional services.

“Give us a call and set up an appointment and ask us about our new-client promotions and our referral incentives. Stop in or call and we will welcome you with a smile and open arms,” Orr said.

The hospital is now open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday; 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday; 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday; and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday. ∞
