Innovetive Petcare is proud to introduce its first partnership in the state of Maryland! Today, we welcome the fantastic team at Hunt Valley Animal Hospital, led by Dr. Allan Frank.
Founded in 1984 in Cockeysville, Maryland, Dr. Frank has spent the last 37 years growing Hunt Valley Animal Hospital and developing a reputation for progressive medicine and advanced medical and surgical skills. Dr. Frank, along with his 6 associates, have a special interest in treating brachycephalic breeds, so much so that they see an average of 8-10 “smoosh face” breeds a day.
Hunt Valley Animal Hospital is known for their yearly Bulldog Day, highlighted by the Running of the Bulls, which takes place at the famous Pimlico Racetrack and averages a crowd of 1,500; it’s not uncommon for people and their dogs to travel from up to four hours away for the event. While the event has been put on hold due to the pandemic, they look forward to resuming festivities again in the future. They were also recently named runner up in Baltimore Magazine’s “Best of Baltimore” Readers’ Poll.
Dr. Frank was personally referred to us by his friend and colleague, Dr. Adam Cohen of Ranch and Lakewood Ranch Animal Hospitals, who experienced the IPC Difference early in 2021 and encouraged him to speak with us. He was looking for a partner to help with his exit strategy, but one who would preserve the legacy and culture he had worked so hard to build over the course of his career. In Dr. Frank’s own words:
“The biggest factor that impacted my decision on going forward with IPC is the professionalism of Paul and Mark. I felt they wanted to preserve the team and family that was built at HVAH. They were true to their word in all aspects of negotiations and made me feel secure with my decision.”
