North Suffolk Animal Clinic is nearing the end of extensive renovations designed to make visits more comfortable for both pets and owners.

The updated facilities include an office for the veterinarians and practice manager, a refurbished waiting room, and new seating in the examination room, hospital manager Cherish Foy said.

“It’s a more modern and welcoming environment,” she said.

One of the crowning achievements of the renovations is a front desk tiled with dog-bone and paw-print motifs, which combine with colorful, modern prints inspired by the animal kingdom to create a vibrate atmosphere.

“Our renovations are part of our ongoing commitment to providing the highest quality veterinary care,” veterinarian Talmadge “Midge” H. Yeatts Jr. stated in a press release.

“By upgrading our reception and consultation rooms, both our pet patients and their owners will be more comfortable during examinations.

“We are proud to provide cutting-edge diagnostic care, and committed to maintaining equally high-quality facilities at our practice.”

Other works of art in the reception area, which also has newly tiled floors, are by pet portrait artist Georg Williams.

New chairs have also been added to the reception area, increasing the level of comfort.

The new consultation room will help accommodate more pet patients, thus reducing wait times, according to the release.

The folks at North Suffolk Animal Clinic say that besides the renovations, the animal hospital will continue to offer advanced diagnostic services, including an on-site laboratory for blood chemistry and fecal sample analysis.

The hospital also has in-house prescription filling for common prescriptions. Pet owners can also stock up on flea, tick and heartworm prevention, as well as nutritional supplements and special diet food.

“Our pet hospital is truly a one-stop destination for all pet wellness needs,” said Yeatts. “From annual examinations and vaccinations to in-house diagnostic work and preventative medication, we are committed to meeting all the needs of each pet patient.”
