David Linzey, owner of Animal Emergency and Pet Care Clinic of the High Country, is building a new facility. The existing building will continue to house the Emergency Clinic, providing animal emergency care 24-7; and the new, 6,440-sq.-ft. facility will be home to the Pet Care Clinic and the Country and Ridge Runner Pet Lodging. Linzey is separating his practices primarily for marketing purposes. It seemed the only people using the routine veterinarian offerings were emergency room clientele. The expansion will cost about $1.5 million for site preparation, construction, veterinary equipment, and furnishings. In addition to providing routine veterinary care, the Pet Care Clinic will make available alternative pet medicine, like acupuncture, and treat a range of exotic animals. The lodging component will accommodate up to 28 dogs in pod rooms with comfortable bedding, separated from the cat condos, which feature climbing towers and perches for up to six guests. Amenities include the run of a natural, fenced acre. Linzey will continue to board animals overnight when procedures require it; the expansion is making room to board healthy pets when their owners go out of town and provide daycare on a regular basis. For assurance, the facility is set up with webcams for log-in client surveillance.
