BUSINESS: Memorial Road Pet Hospital
For animal lovers, few things in life are more essential than the health of a family pet. Choosing a veterinarian is an important part of ensuring your animal receives the care it needs to live a long, happy life. The veterinarians and staff at Memorial Road Pet Hospital [MRPH] in Edmond provide first-rate care to thousands of animals in the metro and recently added new services to make sure your pet gets the treatment it needs and the affection it deserves.
Dr. Larry Woods started the practice in Edmond 23 years ago, and his passion remains. “Many of us have been able to treat pets for their entire lives. What’s special is treating a family’s pet, getting to know the owner’s children, and then seeing them as adults with their own pets,” said Dr. Woods. The team at MRPH has seen all manner of animals throughout their careers, while the hospital is primarily for small animals.
One of the veterinarians on staff, Dr. Erik Eldridge, believes he and his colleagues at MRPH deliver one-of-a-kind service to animals and their owners. “We make a point to spend a lot of time with our clients, answer any questions they may have and follow up with clients to make sure their pets are doing as expected, or to see if they have any further needs.”
MRPH opened a new facility in December, 2014, which includes the Bed and Biscuit Pet Hotel and Spa. The pet hotel is 4,000sf of comfortable space and features large rooms with soft beds, large windows and quick access to a fenced play area. The pet hotel has licensed veterinary technicians on the premises during business hours to provide any care the animals may need during their stay. “We wanted to be able to offer our clients and patients top notch boarding, also with the comfort of having a veterinarian on site to aid in any care needed, or look after pets that have special health concerns,” says Dr. Steve Quillin. The facility requires that all animals be current on internal parasite exams, free from fleas and ticks, and are up to date on vaccinations.
Dr. Eldridge, who is a new partner in the practice speaks about this special group: “My partners Drs. Woods and Quillin, are wonderful men and doctors as many who have walked through our doors will tell you. Additionally, I am inspired daily by Drs. Rosemarie Strong and Beth Parsons who are second to none in their concern for the pet owners and their advocacy of their patients. Dr. Woods started this practice with a philosophy of taking care of our staff, taking care of our patients, and taking care of our clients. Thats our goal every day.”
