Every year we ask our community to help us clear the shelters. Bluebonnet Animal Hospital & Riverside Vet is a proud partner in helping us find pets their forever homes. They are also a great resource for new pet parents to keep their loved ones happy and healthy.
Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Melissa Barrow at Bluebonnet Animal Hospital joined Studio 512 Co-Host Stephanie Gilbert to discuss Bluebonnet, adoption, its new location and more.
There are a lot of vets in Austin. What makes Bluebonnet unique?
“We are locally owned and operated, and female and veteran-owned. We offer a free first exam to newly adopted pets. We have three locations to serve our community and our South Lamar location is open seven days a week!”
What should a new pet parent do before and after adopting a pet?
“Before, they should do some research — which pet would be best suited to their lifestyle. Afterward, it’s really important to bring their pet to the vet for a full physical exam.”
You are opening a third location, tell us more about that.
“We are opening our third location later this year in Circle C. There is definitely a need in the Austin area for excellent high-quality vet care and we are looking forward to serving the Southwest Austin Community.”
