Bayshore Animal Clinic Partners with Innovetive Petcare

It is with much delight that we welcome Drs. Jacob Drewes and Meegan Panzarella and the Bayshore Animal Clinic team to the Innovetive Petcare family!

Located in Tampa, Florida, Bayshore Animal Clinic was founded in 1989 and moved to its current location in 2012; and was acquired by Drs. Drewes and Panzarella in 2013. The “Drewsarellas,” as they affectionately refer to themselves, saw the opportunity to partner with Innovetive Petcare as a way reduce their management responsibilities and to have a partner to maximize the hospital’s future growth potential. They recognized their bandwidth was quickly becoming stretched; having grown the hospital to seven doctors, managing their busy caseloads and the business, all while also making time for their family.

Innovetive Petcare had the pleasure of meeting both Dr. Drewes and Dr. Panzarella in late 2018. Over the past two-and-a-half years, we’ve had the ability to continue to foster our relationship; learn the goals of our collective businesses, and put together a partnership to support the vision Dr. Drewes and Dr. Panzarella have for future of their practice.

Bayshore Animal Clinic prides itself on serving their clientele with a superior standard of care complemented by cutting-edge technology and progressive staff. They have won the ‘Creative Loafing Best of the Bay’ award for six consecutive years! They are proud to be an AAHA accredited, Fear Free Certified, and Cat-Friendly Practice. Bayshore Animal Clinic can frequently be seen on the local news as a source of information for anything ranging from vaccines to red tide!

When asked, ‘What made Innovetive Petcare different from other veterinary management companies?’ Dr. Panzarella replied, “We liked that you allow us to continue with our personalization and mission, and that decision making remains with us.

Innovetive Petcare is incredibly excited to be the chosen partner of Bayshore Animal Clinic and are enthusiastic about the ability to compliment this team of rockstars through our curated onboarding process and beyond.
