Dr. Gregory Todd, Dunedin: Both Eastern and Western Veterinary Care in Dunedin
Gregory Todd, DVM, CVA, operates a small animal integrative veterinary practice in Dunedin. The hospital was built in 1977 and Dr. Patrick Hafner purchased the practice and building in 1981. Todd became a partner in the practice in 1997, then sole owner and CEO in 2011. He notes, “Our hospital joined Veterinary Practice Partners in October of 2018. What was a single-man practice at the time of opening has continually grown and is now a seven-doctor integrative veterinary practice.”
The 3,500-square-foot freestanding facility is located on a half acre of land with 11 indoor runs and 28 cages. The kennel is divided into a cat and dog area with access to an outside fenced area for walking patients and boarders. There are five exam rooms, a pharmacy, treatment room, large waiting room, reception areas, two surgical suites, radiology, doctors’ office and a call center.
“Our goal is to provide the highest-quality veterinary care possible as your family veterinarian,” says Todd. “We offer complete conventional veterinary care such as wellness exams, general surgery, internal medicine, dermatology, dentistry and vaccinations. In addition, we also offer Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine appointments. which include acupuncture, herbology, tui-na, and food therapy.
The Animal Hospital of Dunedin employs seven doctors, seven technicians, nine receptionists/pharmacy techs, five kennel technicians, a hospital operations manager and practice manager. Dr. Todd, Dr. Bartholomew, Dr. Olson and Dr. Schnoke are certified in veterinary acupuncture. Dr. Todd and Dr. Bartholomew are also on faculty at the Chi University. Dr. Matthews, Dr. Woodley and Dr. Shaw all practice conventional Western medicine. They integrate Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine with conventional veterinary practices to support the best clinical outcomes for patients by combining the latest science in medicine with long-established tools of traditional medicine.
“Our biggest challenge has been to continuously improve the level of our medical care and ability to serve our clients and patients,” states Todd. “To that end, we offer internal medicine consultations with a boarded veterinary internist, Dr. Mayli Cuypers. We also offer ozone therapy from Dr. Cheryl Caputo by appointment. We recently remodeled our hospital to provide for more exam rooms, an expanded treatment area, and additional dental and surgery space.”
Todd is waiting for the COVID-19 pandemic to lessen to move from curbside service back to regular operations. He says, “We look forward to this so that we can once again welcome our clients into our facility to provide a personal level of care for both our pet’s parents and their furry family.”
The Animal Hospital of Dunedin is located at 1355 Pinehurst Rd., in Dunedin. For appointments and more information, call 727-733-9351 or visit ahofd.com.
