Vet clinic events slated for Friday

February 21, 2019

On Friday, the owner of Boca Chica Animal Hospital will host a Brownsville Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting in the morning and a grand opening celebration in the evening at the new location, 1245 N. Expressway, former home of Animal Medical Clinic, which has been combined with the animal hospital.

The ribbon-cutting takes place at 11 a.m. and the grand opening celebration at 5:30 p.m. on Friday. The latter event will feature mariachis, tacos and refreshments. The owner, Valley Vet Care, performed a $250,000 renovation on the location, relocating the animal hospital from its longtime home on Boca Chica Boulevard.

The company owns four veterinary facilities in the Rio Grande Valley, plus locations in Corpus Christi, El Paso, Houston and California.
