Local vets office releases
new name, same commitment to care
By SARAH WEBER
ORANGE CITY — Pipestone Veterinary Clinic is rebranding the companion animal side of their brand. Dr. Laura Vander Stelt explains the change.
“The name Pipestone doesn’t say anything about the care we provide companion animals. We want to provide clarity for our clients and have a dedicated brand specifically for companion animals.”
The new name will be Family Animal Care. There will not be staffing changes but a dedicated team operating exclusively under this new name. “Family Animal Care will begin March 1. We will have new signage, new colors, and a new logo. We plan to paint, and the area will look a little different, more fun for our companion animals and their families.”
The new Family Animal Care logo represents the caring, compassion and kindness the companion animal clinic strives for in everyday care. The paw print in the logo holds a heart, representing one of their core values, caring. The four paws represent the additional core values: commitment, growth, teamwork, and integrity.
The companion animal clinic will remain a part of the Pipestone family, but with a name that properly demonstrates the care the staff have been demonstrating for years.
The clinic will be adopting, “Animal Care by People Who Care” as their new mission statement to further show the commitment the staff have to your family, whether it be your two- or four-footed family members.
Family Animal Care will provide preventative care, surgery, and dental care for companion animals, along with a line of pet food, flea and tick products, and heartworm prevention.
“We are constantly striving to better the clinic. Since joining Pipestone, we have added new lab machines, a digital x-ray machine and are still adding to the services we provide. We hired an additional technician, striving to be a place where our animals received service in a timely manner and in the best way possible,” Vander Stelt said.
Another addition to increase customer service, the clinic added a drive-thru window for quick service. “The drive-thru is used mostly for large animals, but small animal clients can use it as well. When a car rides over the black bar, someone in the clinic is alerted to come to the window. We hope it is another way we can make care convenient for our client base.”
The clinic will continue interior updates over the next month, and a new sign will be posted sometime in March.
“We love to care for our companion animals; the whole team is so compassionate and caring toward all pets. We love our jobs and love working with our clients and their pets.”
