RENO, Nev. -- There is a new place for Spanish Springs pet lovers to take pets for checkups... and it is right inside the PetSmart on Los Altos Pkwy. Banfield Pet Hospital celebrated its grand opening Saturday with tours and informational sessions.
Managers have had a positive response from the community so far. The veterinarians there say they are passionate about preventive care and offer prepackaged wellness plans in addition to all the standard veterinary procedures.
The clinic partnered with the Nevada Humane Society (NHS) for the weekend's event.
Nina Rodriguez of Banfield Pet Hospital says, "Twenty percent of our revenue [Saturday] will be donated to them (NHS) and we also helped about 15 of their pets last week with different procedures, some minor surgeries, teeth cleaning things like that. So it has been a great opportunity."
You can take 'Fido' in for that check up on the weekend; the new location is open seven days a week.
