Where is Innovetive Petcare going next?
One of “The Prettiest Small Towns in Georgia,” according to Southern Living magazine. Southern hospitality is a way of life in Washington-Wilkes, GA. People greet each other while out and about downtown, and you’ll often see friends having a chat on a shaded porch.
In this charming southern town is Wilkes County Veterinary Services, our next mixed animal partnership. Located 40-min east of Athens, home of the University of Georgia. Wilkes Co was founded in 1981 by Dr. Les Sales and primarily serviced large animals. As the area grew (and continues to grow) the single doctor operation evolved into the now bustling practice, led by Dr. Thomas McNair.
The team of doctors brings over 50 years of veterinary experience to the table, and state-of-the-art equipment in an equally state-of-the-art facility that allows for fast, accurate diagnoses and treatment. The staff are compassionate and professional, making Wilkes County Veterinary Services the trusted partner from Winder to August to Calhoun Falls to Sparta – that’s nearly 90-miles of service area! Same-day appointments, a robust online pharmacy, and great reputation in the area have led Wilkes Co to tremendous growth.
Like many sellers who don’t know which group(s) to work with, Dr. McNair was introduced to Innovetive Petcare by one of his trusted reps, along with words of encouragement from other industry professional regarding Innovetive Petcare’s compatibility as a partner.
I chose IPC because they can help support us with the growth we are experiencing while leaving the business as-is to practice medicine the way we want to practice. [That] was very important to me and my staff. — Thomas McNair
