Joining to “Grow” the Business, Not “Sell” the Business

Welcome Belton Small Animal Clinic to the Innovetive Petcare family!

Belton Small Animal Clinic is a full-service veterinary practice nestled between Austin and Waco in Belton, Texas. Recognized as a clinic where veterinarians, technicians and caregivers understand the special bond between people and their pets, owner, Dr. Linda Hankins is familiar with building a collaborative veterinary environment. As a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Texas Veterinary Medical Association, and the North Central Texas Veterinary Medical Association, Dr. Hankins and Belton Small Animal Clinic have been offering a full range of veterinary services including urgent care, boarding, day care and grooming since the tenure began in 1997.

Dr. Hankins defines passion for veterinary medicine. After all, she grew up with the innate desire to become a veterinarian by applying for her first position when she was a mere eight-years-old, only to be told “to come back when she was older!” Undeterred, Dr. Hankins began her journey for the love of animals and problem solving by building relationships with pet owners working at her first veterinary practice at age 15.

Pet owners choose Belton Small Animal Clinic because of the trust Dr. Linda Hankins and Clinical Medical Director, Dr. Kasandra Hill instills with their team and clients.

Choosing the right veterinary partner needed the same trust where Innovetive Petcare’s business development team members, Nikki Wilkinson and Paul Covill focus on “growing the business,” not “selling the business.”

“Innovetive Petcare approached our clinic in the same manner as we approach our practice. They maintain a collaborative atmosphere while promoting the growth of the practice and the professional development of the individuals within our practice. They were responsive, honest and worked diligently to ensure our staff was a priority. Thank you Innovetive Petcare for this partnership opportunity.” Dr. Linda Hankins-Owner

Whether you are traveling from Belton, Temple, or anywhere else in Central Texas, you can always expect a warm welcome from Dr. Linda Hankins, Dr. Kasandra Hill and their entire team at Belton Small Animal Clinic.

Belton Small Animal Clinic always makes clients feel part of their family, and now Innovetive Petcare is happy to welcome them as part of ours!
