Innovetive Petcare Welcomes First Hospital in Oklahoma

Innovetive Petcare warmly welcomes the incredible team working around the clock at Neel Veterinary Hospital, our first partnership in the state of Oklahoma!

Curious how this happened? They say nothing influences people more than the recommendation from a trusted friend; so, when three different members of Dr. Tina Neel’s VMG group recommended that she look into Innovetive Petcare as a possible partner for her hospital, she knew that these referrals were not to be taken lightly. As she puts it, she was looking for a continuation plan for Neel Veterinary Hospital; having founded the practice in 1987 and taken it to 24 hour availability in 2000, she was looking forward to practicing without the headaches of human resources, accounting, payroll, and the like.

“Innovetive Petcare differentiated themselves in that they support hospitals in what they need, and then leave them alone to go on the way they always have run. They do not interfere with the structure of the hospital,” says Dr. Neel.

It doesn’t take long to see why keeping things status quo is so important. Neel Veterinary Hospital has been voted ‘Best Veterinary Hospital’ in the state of Oklahoma by The Oklahoman and Reader’s Choice Awards every year since 2017.

Neel Veterinary Hospital has an active internship program, which enrolled six interns for the 2021-2022 session led by Intern Administrator, Katy Hawkins. The practice also has an exciting research department led by Director of Research, Dr. Deepan Kishore, DABVP. Coupled with their blood bank program, general wellness pet practice, and emergency department, it is safe to say there is never a dull moment at NVH.

We look forward to earning Dr. Neel’s seal of approval and future recommendations from her down the road. When asked to sum up her partnership experience to date, she replied, “So far it’s been great!”
