VERO BEACH -- Planet Pet Animal Hospital will celebrate its grand re-opening under new ownership with a community open house event on Saturday, Oct. 12, from 1- 4 p.m.
The Vero Beach veterinary practice, located at the corner of 45th Street and U.S. 1, changed hands in early August of this year and is now owned and operated by Charles Witte, DVM along with his wife, Jennifer.
Open house attendees will be offered complete tours of the facility and the opportunity to talk with the doctor and staff as well as enjoy food and refreshments.
Event sponsors such as Hill's and Iam's will be sampling their latest pet treats and there will be plenty of giveaways including re-usable water bottles, grocery totes, coupons for pet medications and more. Planet Pet even carries a private label shampoo by Stratford and will be giving away trial sizes.
"We want to give current and new clients the chance to come and meet Dr. Witte, tour our facilities and get to know us in a casual and fun environment," Mrs. Witte said.
"We're really looking forward to opening our doors to the community, seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones too. We want everyone to feel welcome to drop by, have a bite to eat and pick up some freebies for their furry friends" said Dr. Witte.
The event is free and open to the public. Event sponsors include Hill's, Iam's, Zoetis, MWI, Stratford, Merial and Elanco.
Food is being provided by Planet Pet's next door neighbor, A Butcher Shoppe and a Bit More.
